COUNTRY STAR MARK WILLS INTRODUCES SECOND TIER
OF CRAZYBEINGHOME.COM CAMPAIGN
Launches Video Contest As Part Of PTSD/Warrior
Treatment Awareness Initiative
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (July 26, 2011)—In April of this year, multi-platinum country music artist Mark Wills, in alliance with USA Cares (a non-profit national military assistance charity founded to assist post-9/11 military families in emotional health and recovery, and bearing the burdens of service with financial and advocacy support), officially introduced the Warrior Treatment Today “Crazy Being Home” campaign.
With the goal to elevate awareness nationwide surrounding the severity of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and traumatic brain injury (TBI), Wills launched the “Crazy Being Home” website (www.crazybeinghome.com) with the multi-objective to reach out to, encourage and support America’s post-9/11 veterans, assist in raising funds for the PTSD and TBI programs and to serve as a communicative outlet for those who suffer to share their mutual stories.
A number of personal accounts appear as postings on the CrazyBeingHome.com site reinforcing the evident need for a public discussion outlet. Adding a second tier to the Crazy Being Home forum, Wills has added a video contest component, extending invitations to visitors, friends, fans and filmmakers to bring their stories to life in video format to demonstrate their support of our returning soldiers and their families working through the issues of PTSD and TBI.
Wills is encouraging folks to create their own original, visual story (music video) using the campaign theme song “Crazy Being Home” in the background. Entrants will receive a free download of the single and the winning video production will be featured on CrazyBeingHome.com as well as Mark Wills’ website. (See details, rules and regulations at crazybeinghome.com.)
Wills recorded the campaign theme song “Crazy Being Home” (written by Chris Lindsey, Brad Warren, Bret Warren and Robin Lindsey) as a tribute to our brothers and sisters of service. It appears on his new album (LOOKING FOR AMERICA) which was released in June; the cut will be released to country radio in October 2011.
In addition to the blog discussions and video contest, visitors of crazybeinghome.com may offer financial assistance to support USA Cares.
