Global Citizen to Hold FREE Anti-Extreme World Poverty Benefit Concert in Central Park, NY

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!

Red Hot Chili Peppers hold free concert for volunteers in Ohio

JUNE 6, 2012 – The Red Hot Chili Pepeprs threw a free concert for people who volunteered to make phone calls and knock on doors for President Obama's re-election campaign. The Obama team put out and awesome video (watch below) and they say:

"Supporters in Ohio rocked for Barack with the Red Hot Chilli Peppers after a weekend of action in April. Being Obama supporters, the Red Hot Chilli Peppers decided to throw a free concert to reward volunteers who held over 650 phone shifts in a four day period. Over half of those shifts were from brand new volunteers who had never volunteered before at the local OFA office.

As one fired up volunteer put it: "To work together and do phone-banking and volunteering and then get a concert afterwards as a reward—it's awesome." Get involved with the nearest Ohio office near you: https://my.barackobama.com/redhotchilipeppersvid"
