Pearl Jam’s “Home Shows” initiative has raised nearly $11 million to fight homelessness in their hometown of Seattle. That total includes money from two sold-out concerts at Seattle’s Safeco Field in August, along with donations from fans and local businesses that partnered with the band. The money will go to more than 100 local charity organizations. Guitarist Mike McCready he wants Seattle’s homeless “to know that they’re people… no better, no worse than anybody on the planet.”
