Ahead of his upcoming Trilogy Los Angeles shows, ILLENIUM is raising funds for End Overdose to help further its work in opioid overdose prevention.
The opioid epidemic has consumed the entirety of the United States, and many across the country have sprung into action to help combat the rising number of overdoses that have come with it. At the forefront of this massive push is Southern California-based non-profit End Overdose, which has partnered with artists, promoters in the festival scene, and Walgreens to educate the masses on how they can help prevent opioid overdoses. Now, ILLENIUM has become the latest artist to help out with the cause by launching a fundraiser ahead of his Trilogy: Los Angeles show.
“With the third Trilogy coming up I’ve been reflecting on all the things that had to go right in my life to make this possible – least of all escaping an addiction to opioids,” ILLENIUM said in his post on Instagram. “I’m grateful every day that I was given the opportunity for a second chance and to be in a position where I can help others have that second chance as well.”
The fundraiser, which fans can donate to starting today via his Instagram profile, looks to raise $25,000 for End Overdose to support their mission of educating those who want to help in the fight against opioid overdoses. ILLENIUM will be matching all donations up until the goal is met. As an added bonus to donating, anyone who contributes will be entered for a chance to win an in-person naloxone training session with ILLENIUM, two tickets to each show, and a signed Trilogy jersey. Five winners will be selected on Tuesday, January 30.
Additionally, End Overdose will also be present at both Trilogy Los Angeles shows at SoFi Stadium. Head to their booth to get trained on how to use naloxone and more.
