Texas native and actress/activist Amber Heard has recorded a special message for Buffalo Tree Presents’ #CareForTheCaravan launch event with Polyphonic Spree and other special guests on Saturday, May 18th at The Granada Theater in Dallas.
The following day, the #CareForTheCaravan truck heads to Still Austin Whiskey Co for a sister event in Austin where all in attendance will be treated to an exclusive first look at Willie Nelson’s unreleased video, “Immigrant Eyes.” Here are just a couple shots from the powerful video:
Actress/activist and first-ever Mexican superhero cast in the U.S, Natalia Cordova (Agents of Shield)has contributed a video for the effort as well. Cristela Alonzo, the first Latina woman to create, produce, write, and star in her own US prime-time comedy, Cristela – will be joining the Buffalo Tree Presents crew in McAllen to drop off supplies and volunteer her time. More announcements will be made along the way.
