Listen up “Brothers and Sisters”, this will send a “Shiver” down the spines – and possibly even a “Rush of Blood to The Head” – of Coldplay fans everywhere: the Grammy Award-winning British band are auctioning tickets to their upcoming tour of North America and Canada for charity.
You need to click on the Charity Folks website at the “Speed of Sound” to be part of the auction, which will benefit Oxfam. “Don’t Panic”, the auction doesn’t end until October 24 – but you still have to set your “Clocks” to get your bid in early.
More than 1,000 Oxfam volunteers across America have worked at Coldplay shows, introducing more than 100,000 Coldplay fans to Oxfam, which works with over 3,000 partners in more than 100 countries to find lasting solutions to poverty, suffering and injustice. It doesn’t take a “Scientist” to realize the work they do will “Fix You” a better world to live in and “Put a Smile on Your Face”.
So click on the Charity Folks site and make a bid – or at least “Talk” to your friends about it.
“The Hardest Part” is counting the number of Coldplay song titles I worked into this story.
