Charitable organization Global Citizen has partnered with some big names in music to help end global poverty. After signing up on the site (which is obviously free) members can earn points towards free tickets to shows by things like signing petitions, watching educational videos, sharing campaigns on social media, calling/emailing politicians, attending a charity event, and more.


Plenty of great acts have aligned themselves with the organization, including: Jay-Z, Kanye West, Bruce Springsteen, Animal Collective, Crystal Castles, Grizzly Bear, Beyoncé, Depeche Mode, the Joy Formidable, Black Sabbath, Pearl Jam, Ke$ha, Menomena, Rihanna, Soundgarden, Chvrches, Fleet Foxes, and more, plus the Sasquatch!, Outside Lands, and Voodoo Music Arts Experience festivals. Global Citizen stays pretty plugged into the music scene as last year they put together a concert in Central Park that featured Neil Young & Crazy Horse, The Black Keys, Foo Fighters, Band Of Horses and K'Naan. For the complete list of the artists involved, check the list here, and check out a video about the effort below.
