Not too long ago Wisin & Yandel, who have been wracking up the Grammy Awards and are nominated for an MTV Music Video Award, came out to build with us in Downey alongside the Monroy family before gearing up for their "La Revolucion" U.S. Tour.
The build-day was just one way in a long list of ways that the talented, duo is helping deserving families all across the U.S. in partnership with Habitat for Humanity. Today, beginning at noon (EDT), they are auctioning off VIP Tour Experiences at http://www.charitybuzz.com/wyy. The auction winners have a lot to look forward to - including meeting Wisin & Yandel, VIP tickets in the first five rows and a VIP swag bag! Not only that, the proceeds will benefit the local Habitat for Humanity affiliate in each city on the tour. Fans are encouraged to bid on the September 17th through October 10th dates beginning today and the October 16th through October 25th dates beginning September 9th. C'mon you know you're going - might as well go VIP style for an excellent cause.
The pair, who supports Habitat for Humanity because they believe a home provides hope and a stronger sense of family and community - three factors essential to succeeding in life, also plans to donate $1 for each concert ticket sold and proceeds from special merchandise to the local Habitat affiliate in each city along the way. A video featuring the duo out and about building with partner families and volunteers will air before each concert and Habitat homeowners will also be invited to take in the shows at every stop on tour. The guys will also be trading in microphones for hammers and sold-out arenas for Habitat build-sites while on tour.
We at Hollywood for Habitat for Humanity and Habitat for Humanity of Greater L.A. are thrilled to be working with such amazing performers and all-around generous guys who are using their "La Revolucion" tour to spread the word and start a revolution in affordable housing!
