On June 9, the Black Eyed Peas and some special friends threw a little picnic on the Great Lawn of Central Park to benefit Robin Hood, the largest and most innovative independent poverty-fighter in New York City. It was called the Concert 4 NYC.
60,000 people gathered to help the 1.8 million New Yorkers living in poverty. Let's make sure that we don't let the spirit of last night disapear.
Donate $25, and you’ll be entered to win a guitar signed by the Peas and their special friends who appeared at the Concert 4 NYC. More importantly, your $25 donation will feed 30 hungry New Yorkers.
After you donate $25, click here to become a fundraiser and then raise $250 to help even more. Just select the "Fundraise for This Event" button, and you'll be given your own fundraising page so you can start raising money right away. The first 100 people to raise $250 will win a prize pack filled with one-of-a-kind concert goodies.

Did you know that in 2010, Robin Hood touched the lives of over 650,000 New Yorkers? Last year we provided over 5 million meals to hungry New Yorkers, helped educate 45,000 students, and helped heal over35,000 low-income patients. Join us on June 9 and help us do even more in 2011!
