GLOBAL CITIZEN FESTIVAL Global Citizen Festival has to be my favorite, not only is the festival an awesome time but it’s pursuing a cause on ending extreme poverty. The Global Citizen Festival is a chance to celebrate the success we’ve already had fighting poverty, while accelerating progress on the core issues of health, education and women’s equality, and demonstrating how global partnerships can contribute to ending extreme poverty. In order to attend the festival, Global Citizens must take action and earn points on globalcitizen.org for a chance to win two tickets to the Global Citizen Festival where Stevie Wonder, Alicia Keys and John Mayer will be headlining on September 28 on the Great Lawn Of Central Park, NY.
