    Pearl Jam has jumped on board in the aid to help Flint with its water crisis.

    On Friday, the rock band pledged $125,000 to the United Way of Genesee County, according to a release from the band’s management. Additionally, a network of the group’s friends and partners — including Live Nation, the group’s record label Republic Records, Universal Music Publishing Group, William Morris Endeavor Entertainment, Glaser Progress Foundation, Brandi Carlile’s Looking Out Foundation and the group’s one-time foes Ticketmaster — chipped in an additional $175,000, bringing the total donation to $300,000.

    The band has also launched a CrowdRise campaign for fans to donate money to Flint through the website crowdrise.com/pearljam.

    Funds will go toward the United Way of Genesee County’s Flint Water Fund, which aids in both the short- and long-term needs of the Flint community.

    Earlier this week, Big Sean also launched a CrowdRise campaign to help those in Flint.

    @AnimalGod needs to get involved in this effort, too. Maybe he could use his car service to drive the sick to the hospital or something. It would be great exposure for his business

    I remember all the glam metal fans being butthurt over Pearl Jam because they weren't "fun" and they just didn't "get it." Im sure you guys have similar stories.
