Ticketmaster (Red) Campaign World AIDS Day

 

Ticketmaster (Red) Campaign World AIDS Day

Every Dec. 1 for the past 25 years, people from around the world have come together to commemorate the fight against HIV/AIDS; to pay respect to those who have succumbed to AIDS and to support those currently living with HIV.

 Each year, since 1988, they have done this by uniting to observe World AIDS Day.

 This year’s World AIDS Day theme is “Shared Responsibility: Strengthening Results for an AIDS-Free Generation” and here at Ticketmaster, we’re doing our part to turn this theme into reality.

Through a special partnership with (RED)™, we’re raising money for the  Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, which will be used towards prevention, treatment, counseling, HIV testing and care services for some of the poorest, most at-risk and marginalized groups facing HIV and AIDS in Africa. For every Ticketmaster mobile app downloaded Nov. 4 –30—and available for free in the iTunes® store and in the Android store—Ticketmaster made a donation to the Global Fund**.

 We’re also encouraging you as fans to get involved.

 Now and until Dec. 15, anytime you purchase tickets for concerts, sports, theatre and family events through Ticketmaster.com and LiveNation.com, you can make a $5 contribution that will go towards the Global Fund—towards much-needed monies for more services and medicines in densely affected areas.

 And, we’re not stopping there.

 We’re encouraging our employees to donate, matching their contributions, up to $10,000.

2013 marks the first time we’ve collaborated with (RED)™ to benefit the Global Fund, a campaign that has raised more than $215 million and positively impacted 14 million people*. Through our combined efforts with our fans and employees, we’re hoping to build upon the critical work that this organization has already done.

Ticketmaster Makes it Easy to Give this Holiday Season

Ticketmaster will donate an additional $1 for every “like” to Ticketmaster’s Facebook page now through 12/31.

 

At Ticketmaster, we value service to strengthen our ties with charitable partners and build community. Ticketmaster is proud to announce another year with the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® in support of their ninth annual Thanks and Giving® campaign.  Over the last four years, with your support, we have raised almost a million dollars to help save lives. One hundred percent (100%) of the donations benefit St. Jude, the nation’s leading pediatric research and treatment center devoted solely to children with cancer and other deadly diseases. St. Jude has developed protocols that help push overall survival rates for childhood cancers from less than 20 percent when the hospital opened in 1962, to 80 percent today. And no family ever pays St. Jude for anything.

This year, we’re pleased to announce three new ways for you to Give. To Help Them Live.

Option 1:  Donate During Checkout

Through January 6, 2013, fans will be able to make donations for the ninth annual St. Jude Thanks and Giving campaign directly at the end of their ticket buying transaction via a click on a donation box.  This simple click can help save the lives of children in communities everywhere.

Option 2:  Donate Now

For the first time, we now have an easy way for you to give directly, even if you are not buying tickets.  Simply visit our donation event and make a $5 or more donation.

Option 3: Like to Donate

Ticketmaster is donating an additional $1 for each new like to Ticketmaster’s Facebook page through 12/31 – over $7,500 raised so far! You can help us spread the word by “liking” the page and by sharing a message from Ticketmaster’s Facebook page and/or retweeting one of the St. Jude messages from @Ticketmaster.

Even the smallest gifts make a big impact!  Here’s how your gifts of hope make a difference:

$3 = one box of pediatric isolation masks to help protect patients with compromised immune systems
$4 = one snack bag for patients and siblings
$8 = one blank medical teaching doll to help patients understand medical treatment and procedures
$10 = one rehabilitation weight used to help improve patients’ quality of life
$15 = four boxes of pediatric bandages
$20 = one new toy for hospital play areas or recreational areas at St. Jude housing facilities
$25 = one one box of toddler footies
$30 = one day’s worth of meals for a St. Jude family in the Kay Kafe, the St. Jude cafeteria
$35 = one #heystjude T-shirt seen in the video
$40 = one rehabilitation ball used in physical therapy
$50 = necessities for parents who may have hurriedly left home after their child’s diagnosis

Make saving children’s lives part of your holiday tradition and “give thanks for the healthy kids in your life, and give to those who are not.”
