The Kokua Hawai’i Foundation, a nonprofit organization founded by Jack and Kim Johnson to support environmental  education programs in Hawai’i, have announced that a one-hour special of the 2006 Kokua Festival will air on the National Geographic Channel in 50 countries starting April 1, 2007.  In addition to Jack Johnson, last year’s show featured Willie Nelson, Ben Harper, Paula Fuga, Henry Kapono, ALO and a surprise appearance by Damian Marley.

Tickets to this year’s show on April 21 and 22 at the Waikiki Shell are sold out.   Proceeds from the concert will be used to further support school recycling on O’ahu, sponsor field trips and curriculum, and develop the new farm-to-school program in schools.

MySpace LIVE at The Kokua Festival will broadcast the concert for viewers as well as feature behind-the-scenes MySpace Video footage and interviews with Jack and friends.
