FreeFest is back and tickets have “free’d-out” in just a few minutes, but Virgin Mobile USA, creator of one of the largest and most critically acclaimed music festivals in the country, has announced that music fans need not worry. Those still wanting to attend can volunteer their time with nonprofit organizations fighting youth homelessness in Maryland, Washington, D.C., and Virginia to earn a ticket to FreeFest. The campaign is part of The RE*Generation program, Virgin Mobile’s charitable initiative focused on ending youth homelessness.
The FreeFest volunteer program is powered by Causecast's innovative volunteer tracking and rewards technology. Now, volunteering is simple – just select one of the available volunteer opportunities, enter in your participation code after completion via the website or SMS text and redeem earned points for your ticket to FreeFest.
FreeFest is a great example of the impact consumer brands can make when they put their weight behind causes. Our volunteer tracking technology was built for this kind of worthwhile program, and we hope it will inspire other companies to do the same.
Although the festival is free, Virgin Mobile is encouraging donations be made to help provide educational opportunities for homeless youth. Homeless youth organizations working with Virgin Mobile USA include Covenant House, Sasha Bruce Youthwork and StandUp For Kids.
