Pearl Jam collects 11 million dollars for charity in Seattle concerts

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

Not only did the group play there – and honored other grunge legends such as Chris Cornell and Andrew Wood – but also set up a small exhibition celebrating their long career.

Well, but now comes the coolest part. According to KOMO News, 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.

One of them is Mary’s Place, and site director Marty Hartman said:

“That’s what these shows can do. Literally bring more people home, out of those cars, those stalls, off the sidewalk and give them a safe space to be, put them in a house forever.”

Still according to the news portal, more than 80 Seattle restaurants have joined Pearl Jam’s request to donate part of their profits to the institutions.
