MAKE A DIFFERENCE TOUR 2015 with Third Day, presented by World Vision Australia

Very excited to share this amazing “Make a Difference Tour” from World Vision with the band Third Day headlining the national tour. More info straight from the Horses mouth and the team from World Vision Australia.

Platinumselling, GRAMMY and Dove Award winning rock band THIRD DAY will headline at World Vision Australia’s Make A Difference Tour with special guests NEEDTOBREATHE and Australia’s Levi McGrath from 11 February 2015.
 
Playing shows in eight major cities around the country, the tour marks THIRD DAY’s return to Australia after eight years and NEEDTOBREATHE’S first major tour of the country.
THIRD DAY front man Mac Powell said the band was excited to be returning to Australia once again
We’ve always enjoyed playing for our Australian fans and look forward to getting back there in February,” Mac said.
 
World Vision Australia’s chief executive, Tim Costello said World Vision was thrilled to offer music lovers across Australia an evening of quality entertainment with a purpose.
“Partnering on the Make A Difference Tour with first rate acts THIRD DAY, NEEDTOBREATHE and Australia’s own Levi McGrath is a privilege,” Mr Costello said.
“Australians are among the most generous people on the planet and this concert will present to audiences a way to actively participate in giving the life changing gift of hope to the hopeless.”
“So often we are overwhelmed by what we see on the news and we think things are hopeless– but we have seen that things are not hopeless,” said Mac.
“A child sponsor’s monthly gift can change the world of a child and his family. It goes towards things
like clean water, food, medical care and education that will help that child rise above the poverty that
she is living in. Think you can’t change the world? Maybe not, but you can change somebody’s
world.”
THIRD DAY bassist Tai Anderson said the band began its World Vision partnership more than a decade
ago to try and help the world’s poor.
What we have realised is that World Vision’s work is about people to be loved, not problems to be solved. World Vision gives you a tangible way to care for the poor,” Tai said.
Guitarist Mark Lee said what was great about World Vision was they had a model you could wrap your head around.
“You see the statistics and you hear the stories about how bad things are around the world and you ask yourself, what can I do, I’m just one person,” Mark said.
“With World Vision’s model, you’re noworried about the whole world, you’re just focused on one child.”
“That little sacrifice that we make monthly actually has a profound impact on not even just one person
but an entire community,” added drummer David Carr.
 
At each concert and online, fans will be given the opportunity to make a difference in the life of a child in need through child sponsorship.
