The Home Shows Candy!

Would you like a sweet way to support Pearl Jam's effort to fight homelessness?  How about a Theo Chocolates candy bar?  They're organic, fair-trade, kosher, vegan, and soy and dairy free.  All the good stuff.  Pick one up on their website for $5 a piece and the proceeds go to the Vitalogy Foundation.

Thanks to Travis at GuerrillaCandy, who comprised a full list of all the stuff you can buy or do to support Pearl Jam's "The Home Shows" initiative.

Eddie Vedder to Play Global Citizen Festival in Johannesburg

Pearl Jam has never played on the continent of Africa, but they'll get close this December when Eddie joins Beyoncé and Jay-Z for the Manela 100: Global Citizen Festival on December 2nd at the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg, South Africa.
This free-ticketed event will celebrate the centenary year of Nelson Mandela, honoring his legacy in the fight to end extreme poverty.

"It is such an honor to be given the chance to head to South Africa to celebrate Nelson Mandela's incomparable legacy. He showed an entire generation what it means to be a leader and make a difference for the world's poor. I'm so grateful that this event will serve as a reminder of his great work and inspire us all to carry on in his name," said Eddie.

Visit Global Citizen to view the full lineup and learn how to earn free tickets to the festival.

... And Now, Beer!

If you were excited about the introduction of "The Home Shows" Brown Sugar Bourbon, maybe you'll also be happy that Seattle breweries, Fremont Brewing and Georgetown Brewing, are joining forces to create "The Home Shows" Seattle Pale Ale, donating $2 from every six-pack to Pearl Jam's Vitalogy Foundation.
According to Matt Edwards, the Research and Development Brewer at Georgetown Brewing, Home Shows Seattle Pale Ales is “an easy drinking pale that skips out on the bitterness while boasting aromas and flavors of fresh mandarin orange, ripened pineapple and honeydew melon.”
Look for the beer in Seattle starting July 20th. No word on distribution outside of Washington state.
