Michael Ray Donated Over 100,000 Meals to Shelter Animals and We Could Not Love Him More For It


A life-long animal supporter, Platinum-selling recording artist Michael Ray launched Wrigley Cares: Helping Animals In Need earlier this month as a philanthropic component to his 15-city Get To You Tour. Named after his rescue dog, Wrigley, the chart-topping singer/songwriter teamed up with Zappos For Good and local animal shelters to set up donation stations at each of his Get To You Tour stops. In just four weeks on the road, Ray and his fans have collected 100,320 meals to donate to animals in need, based on one cup of food as an average per food meal size.

Tonight @wendellsdb is the 2nd stop of the #GetToYou tour! One thing I wanted to do was find a way to give back to the communities that are opening there towns to us and making this tour possible. So I have teamed with @zapposforgood and started a special initiative called WRIGLEY CARES. At every stop of the Get To you tour we will have a donation bin where you can bring Dog or cat food (wet or Dry) or any blankets and receive 10% off t-shirts and get a code for 10% off online Merch. All proceeds will go to a local animal shelter tonight's donations will go to help @andersoncountypaws_sc Thank yall for being apart of this and helping us make a difference we couldn't do it with out y'all!

“We set out to see how we can help animals in need and we are blown away by the huge response,” shared Michael Ray. “When we’re on the road, we stop in each town and become a part of the community for a night while on stage. It’s inspiring to see the ‘Get To You’ Tour can leave a lasting impression and feed so many shelter animals. Wrigley’s stoked too.”

“Zappos For Good is humbled once again to have partners like Michael Ray and his fans, who’ve helped us make a difference in the lives of so many pets around the country,” said Steven Bautista, Head of Charity at Zappos.com. “With their help, our Give campaign is able to provide a much-needed service.
