Activism: Rescuing Teen Prostitutes

Previous recipient of Pearl Jam's support, YouthCare, is taking over a Seattle program aimed at rescuing teen prostitutes.  The program was recently in danger of shutting its doors but was rescued by several private donors; among them, Mike McCready and Stone Gossard.

Could another benefit show be in the near future?  One can only hope.

In the meantime, to donate yourself, tax-deductible donations can still be made to the City of Seattle Prostituted Children Rescue Fund. Donations should be mailed to:
