Pearl Jam raise 11 millions dollars for the homeless in Seattle

Two weeks ago, Pearl Jam returned to Seattle after five years for two shows at Safeco Field, the historic stadium in the city.

According to KOMO, the band raised more than $ 11 million dollars to help Seattle’s homeless. Of the total profit from presentations, 90% went to organizations hosting these people. “And this is what those Home Shows can do,” said Marty Hartman, director of Mary’s Place, a non-profit that provides temporary housing to homeless women, children, and families. “Literally, bring more people home, out of those cars, out of those tents, up off the sidewalk and give them a safe space to be and get them into their forever home.
