Kenny Chesney is a real life Leslie Knope!
The country singer is attempting to raise money for the National Parks Conservation Assocation by donating $1 from the first 50,000 tickets sold of his Kenny Chesney: Summer in 3D concert film to help fund projects at the Grand Canyon, Yellowstone and Biscayne National Parks!
"Any time you can give back or help protect our nation's parks, that's a good thing. Growing up near the Smokey Mountains — or spending as much time in the U.S. Virgin Islands as I do — you realize what a resource it is for all of us. No matter who you are, what you do, that beauty is all of ours to enjoy — to go camping, hiking, to sail in — and that undeveloped land is a gift. But it's a gift to maintain. The idea people could buy tickets for my movie, and a dollar from each ticket will help maintain the parks, made me really happy. I know a lot of people are gonna see it, [and] they can also help the National Parks Conservation Association raise $50,000 to get us started on this partnership."
What a wonderful gesture!
