Okay everyone, put away your wallets and take out your pens and cell phones! Instead of purchasing tickets to see Wiz Khalifa, DJ Afrojack, and LP perform at the Forbes Under 30 Music Festival on October 19 in Philadelphia, you can win tickets here by taking one of the following actions:
-Sign the petition to support the Water for the World Act — legislation that refines and improves the current Senator Paul Simon Water for the Poor Act that makes safe drinking water, sanitation and hygiene a U.S. foreign policy priority. The Water for the World Act would better utilize the existing funds and strengthen accountability for existing programs.
-Tweet at Senator Patrick Leahy, Senator Lindsey Graham, Congresswoman Kay Granger and Congresswoman Nita Lowey and thank them for working to ensure every child across the world has access to protection from diseases.
-Sign the petition encouraging world leaders to help end the Ebola epidemic.
-Tweet a selfie with the hashtag #showyourself, joining the petition that shows world leaders that the rights and needs of the 1.8 billion young people across the globe must be a priority.
The concert is being presented by Global Citizen Nights, the folks behind the annual Global Citizen Festival and the Global Poverty Project, an education and advocacy organization working to build a movement to end extreme poverty within a generation. It will kick off Forbes’ Under 30 Summit, which will bring together members of Forbes’ Under 30 List with business leaders, mentors, musicians including Questlove, Afrojack and more.
Even if you can’t make it to Philly for the concert or the deadline has passed, you can still consider improving your karma by taking action to support these important endeavors.
