Offering free concert tickets and vowing to match donations, Lady Gaga has partnered with Virgin Mobile USA to aid homeless youths.
In December, Virgin Mobile, the title sponsor of Gaga's Monster Ball tour, announced that the company would be extending its FREE I.P. volunteer program in conjunction with the North American trek.
Created in August, the program provides participants free concert tickets for collecting toiletries to be handed out at homeless-youth shelters.
On top of providing fans with tickets, Gaga also promises to match up to $25,000 for every dollar donated to the cause.
In a video for the partnership (featured below), the extravagant performer and gay rights advocate discusses the particular relevance the issue has to LGBT people.
"One of every five homeless in the community identified themselves as gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgendered youth, making homophobia a top cause of domestic violence," she says. "And you all know that makes me very angry."
The volunteer program began with Lady Gaga's San Francisco concert December 13 and will include all U.S. cities on the tour through January 24.
