Kanye West, Jay-Z, Beyonce, One Direction and more give away concert tickets in exchange for social activism

What could be better than supporting social justice campaigns and getting free concert tickets in return? Jay-Z, Kanye West, Bruce Springsteen, One Direction, Animal Collective, Depeche Mode, Black Sabbath, Rihanna, Beyonce, Pearl Jam, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Brandi Carlile and Fleet Foxes are among the plethora of artists participating in the Global Citizen initiative, dedicated to fighting extreme poverty and encouraging people to take action to promote social justice.

Through the program, people can collect points by sharing information about social justice campaigns on social media, watching videos, attending charity events, signing petitions, volunteering and more. The points can then be used to enter drawings for concert tickets from the aforementioned artists.

It’s run by Global Poverty Project, an education and advocacy organization working to build a movement to end extreme poverty within a generation.

Sounds like a win, win situation to us!
