To aid Feeding America in their important efforts, Pearl Jam has also created a special limited-edition Backspacer t-shirt in conjunction with eco-friendly clothing company, Loomstate. Designed by famed cartoonist, Tom Tomorrow, T-shirts are available now at select Target locations and at target.com. Feeding America anticipates that the $30,000 donation from Pearl Jam and Loomstate from the sale of these shirts will translate to roughly 210,000 meals nation-wide.
In addition to the t-shirt partnership, Pearl Jam donated $1 per paid ticket from their two, sold-out hometown shows to Seattle Feeding America affiliate, Food Lifeline. Target matched this donation.
Feeding America is able to provide seven (7) meals for every dollar donated, to over 36 million Americans who are currently facing hunger. For more information on Feeding America, please visit feedingamerica.org.
