Shoeholics magazine was a proud participant at the Rainforest Action Network (RAN) Eco Rock charity event that took place today at The Cutting Room New York City at with proud supporters such as Chris Noth, Jim Gaffigan, Holt McCallany, just to name a few.
Rainforest Action Network campaigns for the forests, their inhabitants and the natural systems that sustain life by transforming the global marketplace through education, grassroots organizing and non-violent direct action.
Since it was founded in 1985, the Rainforest Action Network has been working to protect rainforests and the human rights of those living in and around those forests. From the beginning, RAN has played a key role in strengthening the worldwide rainforest conservation movement through supporting activists in rainforest countries as well as organizing and mobilizing consumers and community action groups throughout the United States. For more than 28 years, RAN has brought the voices of the people and the planet to the world’s largest corporations, enabling the type of change that can only be achieved through sophisticated negotiations and fearless action. The Wall Street Journal calls us “some of the most savvy environmental agitators in the business.” We’ve saved millions of acres, shown corporations time and again that they can do well while doing good and mobilized thousands of concerned individuals around the world to make a difference.
Live performance was provided by Warren Haynes of Gov’t Mule and The Allman Brothers Band while comedian Jim Gaffigan had everyone in stitches! The event was a smashing success raising funds thanks to a room full of generous donors and gifts donated by luxurious hotels and diamond watches by Jacob & Co. The lot created a bidding frenzy that helped raise funds for the cause. Click here to learn more about RAN to see how you too could help and perhaps to attend next year!
