Global Citizen, a non-profit that is trying to eradicate extreme poverty worldwide by 2030, will be holding a free concert in New York's Central Park on Saturday, September 28, 2013 with acts like Alicia Keys, Stevie Wonder, Kings of Leon, John Mayer and more.
The great thing about this is to get the free tickets, citizens must "Take Action" and better the world community through action. One goes to the Global Citizen website, and registers with them. After that, you are presented with 4 key areas they are focusing on right now which are education, health, women's equality and global partnerships. I signed up, and picked the issue close to my heart, which is health. After choosing your issue, you can "take action", earn points and better the world. Once you get to 20 points, you can enter in the drawing for the free tickets to the concert. I think this is a great way to not only get people motivated to act, but it makes them feel involved in the process. One can sign petitions and pressure UN or governmental officials to act on certain priorities. I signed a petition for the UN to make childhood immunizations a priority. One child can be saved with a shot that costs .30 cents! Try this cause to make a difference also!
JTMP will hopefully be able to get tickets through the drawing, or we will get press passes and cover it for you. Check back regularly for updates, and check with us in September after the concert for pictures and video of the event. For now, head on over to the Global Citizen website and TAKE ACTION!
