Pearl Jam and a close group of friends and partners have pledged $300,000 and counting to support relief efforts for the water crisis in Flint, Michigan.
They encourage all fans and supporters to join in their efforts. They have set up a Crowdrise page to encourage donations, which can be accessed here.
Monetary donations will first be used for the purchase of water filters, bottled water, emergency support services and prevention efforts in Flint, Michigan. After the short-term need of Flint residents has been met, any remaining funds will be directed to the Flint Child Health and Development Fund. This fund will provide aid to children and families with interventions that support positive health outcomes.
100% of donated funds are used for Flint community projects and no administrative fee is assessed.
