Mike Peters and The Alarm kicked off the summer on July 6th with the Vans Warped Tour in Camden, NJ. Along with the Love Hope & Strength Foundation Team, they set out to save lives one concert at a time. Since 2008, they have been hosting marrow donor drives at concerts and festivals across the globe via their Get on the List campaign. This program encourages people to sign up for the International Bone Marrow Registry via a simple cheek swab, taking their concept of, “saving lives, one concert at a time,” to a whole new level. 




On top of performing at a concert just about every night of the week with travel in between, Mike Peters takes the time to do local New and Radio interviews to bring attention to the Love Hope & Strength Foundation as well as the documentary, The Man in the Camo jacket. Below is just one of several of those interviews discussing The Man in the Camo Jacket, as well as his fight and mission to "Give Cancer the Boot"

Los Angeles, May 2nd, 2017: Vlado Footwear was established with the purpose of bringing to market a high-quality affordable shoe no matter your lifestyle.

That simple selfless thought led to a new movement within the company by its owners, Jill Kim and Ted Chun, to give back and help improve their community.


This prompted Vlado To reach out to various programs all over the city of Los Angeles. Now, current day, Vlado works with such programs as the Make a Wish Foundation, A Place Called Home, The Covenant House, Soles for Souls and the LAPD Operation Shoes from Santa to name a few. Continuing to do their part, Vlado Footwear has and will stand ready to help where needed.
