The Vitalogy Foundation supports the efforts of non-profit organizations doing commendable work in the fields of community health, the environment, arts and education and social change. $2 from each ticket sold from the majority of Pearl Jam concerts is placed into the Vitalogy Foundation. As board members of the foundation, the members of Pearl Jam allocate Vitalogy Foundation funds to a number of non-profit organizations that they personally select.
We were surprised and thrilled to learn that Mary’s Place was selected by band member Stone Gossard to receive a donation from the Foundation of $10,000! As a thank you to Stone and the band, the kids at Mary’s Place recorded this version of Pearl Jam’s Just Breathe.
