Michael Ray launched Wrigley Cares: Helping Animals In Need earlier this year as a philanthropic component to his 15-city Get To You tour. Named after his rescue dog, Wrigley, the singer teamed up with Zappos For Good and local animal shelters to set up donation stations at each of his tour stops. In just four weeks on the road, Ray and his fans have collected 100,320 meals to donate to animals in need, based on one cup of food as an average per food meal size.
He said, “We set out to see how we can help animals in need and we are blown away by the huge response. When we’re on the road, we stop in each town and become a part of the community for a night while on stage. It’s inspiring to see the Get To You tour can leave a lasting impression and feed so many shelter animals. Wrigley’s stoked too.”
“Get To You,” the lead single off Ray’s upcoming sophomore album, is climbing the country charts.
