Johnson will be performing a free show, which starts at 6 p.m., to raise awareness for 1% for the Planet. Kevin Large’s Widower project will also play a set.
Since we’re all familiar with Patagonia, here’s some background on the cause: “1% for the Planet is a global organization that connects dollars and doers to accelerate smart environmental giving. We recognize that the current level of environmental giving — only 3% of total philanthropy — is not enough to solve the most pressing issues facing our planet. Through our business and individual membership, 1% for the Planet inspires people to support environmental organizations through annual membership and everyday actions. We advise on giving strategies, we certify donations, and we amplify the impact of the network.”
1% for the Planet was started in 2002 by Patagonia founder Yvon Chouinard and Blue Ribbon Flies founder Craig Mathews, and has raised more than $175 million to environmental nonprofits.
It boasts “a network of more than 1,200 member businesses, a new and expanding core with hundreds of individual members, and thousands of nonprofit partners in more than 60 countries.” Its headquarters are in Burlington, Vermont.
