Earlier this month Hurricane Matthew wreaked havoc on the Caribbean and Southeastern United States, leaving thousands without access to food, water, and shelter. Relief has poured in from around the world, but there’s still much to be done to combat the mounting hunger crisis faced by the hardest-hit communities.
You can help. From Tuesday October 25 through Sunday, November 6, fans buying tickets to US events on Ticketmaster can pitch in during purchase by donating to the World Food Programme (WFP).
