Volunteer for Oxfam with Coldplay
SO, it’s just one day until Rachel flies out to join the Coldplay crew for the first show of the new tour on April 17 (Tuesday), in Edmonton, Canada.
While she’s busy packing and saying farewells to the team at Oxfam GB in England, I thought you guys might like to know a little about about how YOU could be an Oxfam volunteer at a Coldplay gig near you.
Edmonton, Calgary and Vancouver in Canada are covered, with volunteers recruited from outreach at university Oxfam groups and committees. BUT…
Oxfam America is now recruiting for volunteers for US shows from April 24.
I’m a huge Coldplay fan and I hate injustice. How can I get involved?
What will I have to do?
As a volunteer, your role will be to talk to concert-goers about the GROW campaign. GROW is all about conversations; talking to friends, family and others about one thing we all have in common – food, and how we can make the system better for everyone. “The GROW campaign is one of those rare campaigns where we can talk about something everyone can identify with,” Oxfam America’s music relations guy Bob Ferguson told musicforgood.tv.
What if I don’t live in the US?
If you’re in another part of the world, don’t worry, we need you too. We’ll add more information about volunteering in your country as soon as Oxfam starts recruiting there.
