THE 2009 SUB CITY TAKE ACTION!

February 26, 2009 – Hopeless Records, in connection with their non-profit organization Sub City is pleased to partner with DoSomething.org, the national not-for-profit organization to offer $1,000 Take Action grants to young people who want to make a difference in their communities.

The Grants include:
· Music Education: $1,000 grant for projects that Do Something about Music Education, empowered by f.y.e.
· General: $1,000 grant for projects that Do Something about any cause that young people are passionate about, empowered by MySpace Music and MySpace IMPACT

Charity partner Do Something is a place where young people are given the opportunity to help change the world. Instead of telling young people what cause they should get involved with, Do Something asks them "What's your something?" and then gives them the information, resources, and grant-money to make change around the causes they are passionate about.

To apply for a Take Action! Grant, young people can visit dosomething.org/grants and upload their community change projects or ideas. The grants will be open to young people, 25 and under, across the US and Canada. Each grant application will be rigorously reviewed by Do Something as well as the sponsors, grant winners will be announced in April. Do Something has issued over $1.6 million in grant money since it’s inception to young people who are making change in communities across the globe.

The 2009 Sub City Take Action! Tour presented by f.y.e., kicked off this February, and features headliner Cute Is What We Aim For, along with Breathe Carolina, Meg & Dia, Every Avenue, and Anarbor.

The charitable tour coincides with the annual Take Action benefit compilation. The CD/DVD compilation is now available on tour and includes unreleased tracks from Meg & Dia, The Spill Canvas, and Four Year Strong, as well as unreleased videos from Rise Against and All Time Low. 5% of the suggested retail price for each Take Action! Volume 8 unit sold is donated to DoSomething.org.

To date, Sub City- a registered 501c3 organization, has raised over $1.5 million for various charitable organizations; much of that a result of Take Action. Proving to music fans that yes, we can help bring forth change, making a difference can be as fun and easy as buying a concert ticket or a CD/DVD.
