I am glad you’re reading this cause there is something really special about Kristian Bush that I try to explain to people and when they meet him, they get it, like right away. It’s easy to see how soulful he is and how much meaning he puts into everything he does.
Goodwill Industries International and Kristian Bush, one-half of Platinum-selling country duo Sugarland, partnered to raise awareness of Goodwill’s mission of transforming lives through the power of work. It’s a partnership inspired by the message of Bush’s debut solo single, “Trailer Hitch,” which reminds us that we collect so many things that we don’t need, and we can’t take it with us when we go… so why not “give it away”?
“The song, ‘Trailer Hitch’ says, ‘I may not have that much but I don’t mind spreading it around.’ Almost everyone knows someone who is struggling to make ends meet and unemployment in our country is still a problem. The simple act of giving away what you no longer need to Goodwill can help someone find a job. That’s pretty amazing to me.”

Through Kristian’s partnership with Goodwill he wants to encourage music fans to donate clothing, electronics and small household goods in their communities, and remind them that the revenue from the sale of these donations goes directly to help find employment for people with disabilities, disadvantages, or anyone facing challenges.
It absolutely made my heart smile and eyes leak when I saw this video. The powerful combination of Kristian Bush and Goodwill is spot on and I can’t think of a better ambassador of the spirit of giving that Goodwill represents than Kristian!

Everyone asks “what exactly do you do Jessica?” What some of my family members say, “she tweets for a living” is my favorite, but really the title that puts food on the table is “Social Media Influencer,” the definition sounds simple, someone who influences others through social media, but I consider myself a Citizen Journalist broadcasting and entertaining with news, thoughts, opinions, delivering information in my own unique way. Famous for my ‘sass wit and straight from the hip’ style I’ve always been called a “Social Media Pioneer” in the music industry. I’m also an On-Air/Online Broadcasting Host and Personality, Digital Media Strategist, Country and Music Blogger/Journalist as well as a Nationally recognized Speaker and Founder of Country Music Chat, News and Views Entertainment Website CMChatLIVE.com. My favorite accomplishment is starting the largest Country Music Hashtag community in the world Country Music’s #CMChat.
It all started with a hunch…back in the early 2000’s I would dial up the internet via AOL and join chat rooms whilst watching my favorite programs on TV. Loved watching Reality Shows with my Mom in Tucson, and blowing her mind with how I always knew who was going home on the Bachelor or Big Brother. Don’t think she ever caught on that I was talking to people via computer on the East Coast, where it had already aired. (We didn’t have the uber-spoiler Twitter or Facebook to ruin results and awards shows for us yet.)
I’ve been taking over the internet, one tweet at a time and have accumulated over 3 Million followers/friends/fans across all my Social Media networks. Over the years I’ve been consistently ranked as an influential online personality and even named as a Forbes Top 50 Social Media Power Influencer. I was the first person Merle Haggard followed when he got on Twitter and spent the day with Garth Brooks at Twitter and Facebook when joined the social media world.
