Andrew Bird Tickets: Causecast Reward for Doing Good

Posted: Updated:

If you follow what we're up to on Causecast, you know that two of our favorite things are 1) public service and 2) rocking out.

It's with this spirit that we've been able to incorporate so much great music into our campaigns, from making available the Conor Oberst documentary One Of My Kind for free, to giving away tickets just a few months ago to the American Idol finale.

It seems that we just couldn't contain ourselves and we're up to our old tricks again. Causecast is proud to partner with The Greek Theatre in Los Angeles to give away two pairs of tickets to see Andrew Bird with special guests Ra Ra Riot and Heartless Bastards this Friday, July 10.

We want to reward the people who are committed to doing good and participating in this summer's United We Serve initiatives, so we're giving the tickets away to those who tweet us with their service plans for summer.

Here are the rules:
•To count as an entry in the giveaway, you have to include both @Causecast and #andrewbird in the tweet. You must also mention something you're doing this summer to serve others.
•You can tweet as much as you want. Since we're picking the winners at random, the more you tweet the better chance you'll have.
•Only tweet stuff you're actually going to do! Joke tweets will be disqualified. (i.e. "@Causecast I'll spin the world backwards and prevent climate change!" won't count.)
•Winners will be announced via Twitter on July 9. The tickets are being held at will call, so you'll just have to go to the box office and give your name. If you're one of the winners, we'll direct message you on Twitter, so make sure you're following us!

Not sure what to say? Here's an example tweet:
Hey @Causecast I'll be volunteering this Saturday at the Farm Sanctuary Pignic! http://ow.ly/gif2 #andrewbird

That's all there is to it! We'll be featuring great tweets on Causecast.org and here on The Huffington Post, so check back often!
