Better Than I Found It, the outreach arm of the nonprofit organization founded by three-time GRAMMY nominee and American Idol alum Danny Gokey, today announced the details surrounding their Better Than I Found It "Bus Stop" give-back events during Gokey's spring Jesus People Tour featuring special guests Jordan Feliz and Blanca. Taking place in eight of the tour's cities, these special bus stops will feature opportunities for Better Than I Found It to give back and serve local communities during the spring tour by partnering with local organizations, including those providing diapers to single moms, serving with tornado disaster relief, helping to provide resources and aid to the homeless, and more throughout the tour.
 
"During my exit interview on American Idol, when the host asked what was next for me, my response was, 'I see my music as a movement,'" said Gokey. "I didn't fully know what that would look like at the time, or where the journey would take me. I just knew that God wanted it to be about more than just music. It's been a long time coming, but I'm so grateful that we are able to launch the Better Than I Found It 'Bus Stops' as part of my regular music touring this spring! These stops are a way of giving back to the local communities where we are doing shows by raising awareness about needs, doing our part to help meet those needs while we're in town, and activating concert attendees to get out in their area and 'be' Jesus People to those around them long after we're gone!"  
 
Better Than I Found It "Bus Stops" will take place in eight cities this spring as Gokey's nonprofit partners with local community nonprofits in McDonough, GA, Houston and Dallas, TX, Scottsdale, AZ, Spring Valley and Sacramento CA, Minneapolis, MN, and his hometown of Milwaukee, WI.
 
Gokey added, "We're starting small right now to get our feet wet, but the goal is to make this a regular part of our touring in the future. As we've reached out in the communities this go around, we've been met with nothing but excitement and collaboration. Local nonprofits, radio stations, and leaders have all been amazingly supportive of what we are working to accomplish. It's so beautiful to see everyone coming together to bless their communities by meeting a specific, tangible area of need. We know we can't do it all, but we believe that we can leave each city just a little better than we found it!"
