Popular Singer Launches Foundation to Battle MS
Posted by: Entango on Friday, March 21, 2003
Topic Arts, Culture & Humanities

Multi-platinum country music singer Clay Walker has publicly announced the formation of the Band Against MS Foundation. The Band Against MS Foundation is a nonprofit organization that will raise money to help fund research to find a cure for multiple sclerosis (MS) - a disease Walker was diagnosed with more than six years ago.

Still healthy and living an active lifestyle, Walker knows not everyone with MS has been as lucky as he, which prompted him to start the Foundation. Walker wants to see MS cured in his lifetime, and plans to be a leader in that effort. Band Against MS merchandise will be available on the Foundation's web site and on the singer’s 2003 concert tour. Proceeds from the merchandise and donations to the Foundation will go towards MS research. More information is available online.

"The Band Against MS Foundation web site is an important way to reach out to people and help them learn more about MS," said Walker. "I talk with so many fans at concerts who want more information, and I am glad there is a resource for them."

The Foundation has chosen Entango, a leader in online fundraising tools, to add secure donation processing to its Web site.

The Band Against MS Foundation is a not-for-profit organization that will raise money to help fund research toward a cure for multiple sclerosis.

Entango is a San Francisco-based provider of personalized and secure online fundraising services that enable nonprofit organizations a way to connect with supporters. Its competitively priced services include online donation, event registration and membership/renewal processing, merchandising, email outreach, reporting, and receipt fulfillment.
