To celebrate Earth Day 2012, the Johnson Ohana Charitable Foundation is partnering with 99Papers.org to match $25,000 in donations to “green” classroom projects. “Our goal is to leverage community support for classrooms and to encourage youth stewardship this Earth Day by supporting recycling, waste reduction, and creative plastic-free projects.” said Executive Director Jessica Scheeter.
100% of Jack Johnson’s 2008 tour profits were used to establish the Johnson Ohana Charitable Foundation, founded by Jack and Kim Johnson to support environmental, art and music education worldwide. In conjunction with his 2008 world tour, Johnson also launched thecampaign, a social action network and global community that provides information, tools, and motivation to empower individuals to become active in their local and world community.
