Vedder Fans Raise Funds For WRC

Pearl Jam singer Eddie Vedder was in Toronto performing at Massey Hall on August 12 and 13, 2008.

As part of Eddie Vedder and Pearl Jam’s commitment to the communities they perform in, the band's foundation - The Wishlist Foundation - held a pre-concert fund and awareness raising event in support of White Ribbon Campaign.

The event, organized by Demetrios Lyberopoulos, an avid Pearl Jam and Eddie Vedder fan, was a huge success raising $925 for White Ribbon Campaign. Demetrios and others donated personal collectables to raffle off at the event.

The highlight, was a one-of-a-kind concert poster signed by Eddie Vedder.

The Wishlist Foundation is a Pearl Jam fan nonprofit, grassroots organization dedicated to supporting Pearl Jam’s charitable and philanthropic goals. Their ongoing mission is to utilize the collective ability of Pearl Jam fans around the globe, to make a difference in the world.

The Whishlist Foundation works toward a common greater good for all of our beneficiaries by participating in the following activities: education, fundraising, increasing awareness, involvement and community service.

The inspiration to comes from interviews, lyrics, songs and words of encouragement from the band Pearl Jam.
With my two hands... I can change the world...
Thank you to Eddie Vedder, the fans and to Demetrios for organizing this event for White Ribbon Campaign.
