Katy Perry’s Charitable Endeavor: Free Concert Tickets For Fans Taking Action
As Katy Perry gears up for the first leg of the Witness World Tour, she is encouraging fans to be more charitable. Earlier this week, the “Swish Swish” diva announced a partnership with social action platform Global Citizen and the Boys & Girls Clubs of America to create an initiative that offers free concert tickets to fans who generously donate time and/or funds to help the charity.
In order to participate in the giveaway, fans need to create an account on Global Citizen and support the Boys & Girls Clubs of America. If they donate supplies and tweet their support, they have the opportunity to win a pair of general admission tickets to one of Katy’s upcoming shows. If they actually volunteer their time at one of their local clubs, they will have a chance to win a pair of VIP tickets including a meet and greet with the “Chained to the Rhythm” hitmaker. Fans can sign up to enter the competition on Global Citizen’s official website.
“I’m a firm believer that actions speak louder than Tweets,” Katy said in a press release announcing the partnership. “I think we’re all looking for a way to make real change beyond just donating our loose change,” she explained before promising that fans who took part in the project could earn some “INCREDIBLE” tickets to see her on tour. Boys & Girls Clubs of America CEO Jim Clark expressed his excitement for the opportunity. “We are so excited to partner with mega star Katy Perry,” he said, explaining that the opportunity will help support a new generation of potential leaders across the country. The Witness Tour kicks off with a show in Columbus, Ohio on September 9 and is scheduled to conclude with a string of Australian dates next August.
