Better Than I Found It, the outreach arm of the nonprofit organization founded by three-time GRAMMY® nominee and American Idol alum Danny Gokey, today announced the initial details surrounding their Better Than I Found It “Bus Stop” give back events during Gokey’s fall events and “Stay Strong” tour with Austin French and Natalie Layne. The give back events will shine the light on and provide tangible resources to hardworking individuals and nonprofits making a positive impact in their communities, including those providing resources for the homeless in Nashville, a widow giving back and battling food insecurity in her community, an organization supporting veterans, and more.
“Doing the bus stops last spring was such an eye-opening experience,” said Gokey. “There are so many people in need. So, we had to keep it going for the Fall tour. This time we’re doing fewer stops with the intent of making a longer lasting impact on the nonprofits we’re helping. I can’t wait for you to hear the inspiring stories of these founders.”
Better Than I Found It “Bus Stops” will take place in four cities this fall. These cities include Nashville, TN, Macon, GA, Fort Wayne, IN, and Woodbridge, VA.
As a part of Gokey’s fall “Stay Strong” tour, Better Than I Found It will sell an exclusive “Giveback Backpack” throughout the tour. Inspired by a 16 year old who started a “blessing bag” ministry handing out hygiene products to the homeless, the backpacks will be sold as a set of two: one to keep, and one to fill with items to be given away to help someone in need. All proceeds from the bags will go to support upcoming Better Than I Found It giveback events.
