Apparently, you can end extreme poverty by attending a free concert in Central Park featuring Stevie Wonder. At least that’s the idea behind the Global Citizen FestivalÂ held September 28, 2013, in New York City. Alicia Keys, Kings of Leon, and John Mayer will also be rocking the park.
So how do you exactly get into the show? Sign up on the Global Citizen website and earn points by taking action to help the world’s poor and then use the points to enter a drawing to win one of the 27,000 double passes to the show. If bribing you with John Mayer to sign petitions sounds needlessly complicated, then you’re out of luck, because that’s the only into way the show.
