YO GABBA GABBA LIVE! gives back with a Toy Drive


November 4, 2010

New Toys will be accepted at the 11/7 show to give to less fortunate children!

KIA MOTORS PRESENTS YO GABBA GABBA! LIVE!: THERE’S A PARTY IN MY CITY! AND CONSCIOUS ALLIANCE JOIN TOGETHER TO HOST TOY DRIVE FOR UNDERPRIVILEGED YOUTHS

Today’s hottest live show for families, Kia Motors Presents Yo Gabba Gabba! Live!: There’s A Party In My City! is teaming up with Boulder-based nonprofit Conscious Alliance to host a toy drive at their November 7, 2010 performances at the 1st Bank Center in Broomfield, Colorado.   The drive will help bring toys to children in economically isolated regions of the United States.

Conscious Alliance is a Boulder, Colorado-based national nonprofit that was founded in 2002 and is focused on delivering emergency food relief to the most impoverished communities in the United States.   Most of their collected donations are distributed to Native American Reservations, where six of the seven poorest communities in the U.S. are located. 

Conscious Alliance concentrates much of their efforts on Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota, where the average median income is under $3,000.  Many families in this region struggle to provide food and heat for their households.  Native American youth are particularly affected by the poverty in Pine Ridge, where one-fourth of the population is under the age of eighteen. 

All toys collected at Kia Motors Presents Yo Gabba Gabba! Live!: There’s A Party In My City! will benefit the youth of this area and be distributed during the holiday season. It is recommended all donations at Yo Gabba Gabba! Live! are a new stuffed animal valued at $10 or more.

About Conscious Alliance

Conscious Alliance is a Boulder, Colorado based national 501(c) 3 nonprofit organization committed to the redistribution of much-needed food to the impoverished communities of the United States. Operating through ongoing, grassroots food collection and hunger awareness programs throughout the U.S.—mostly by organizing food drives at concerts and sporting events—Conscious Alliance donations directly benefit America’s local food pantries and impoverished Native American reservations. Since their first event in 2002, Conscious Alliance has hosted hundreds of food drives at music festivals including Bonnaroo, Power to the Peaceful, and Langerado and for concerts by such artists as Jack Johnson, Foo Fighters, Bruce Springsteen, Michael Franti & Spearhead, The Dead, The String Cheese Incident, STS9 and many others. The net result: the redistribution of nearly 1 million pounds of food – and counting!
