    Many Lady Gaga fans are shit out of luck. Most of the dates of her recently extended, North American Monster Ball tour are already completely sold out. Rather than go the scalper route and change getting ripped off with a fake ticket, you can earn your way into a Gaga concert by…volunteering.

    In the wake of last year's program where Gaga fans that volunteered eight hours of their time to a Virgin Mobile USA-designed homeless youth organization were rewarded for their time and effort by receiving premium VIP tickets in certain cities. That campaign was such a smashing success – and a good philanthropic move- that Virgin announced that they will continue to the program to cover the forthcoming, 30-city tour.

    "It's such a tragic thing that's happening on the streets that two million kids experience homelessness. The great thing about this program is that we definitely raised awareness of the plight of homeless youth," says Dan Shulman, Virgin Mobile CEO in a statement. "And it was not just those that got the Free I.P. tickets that became more aware of the issue. Lady Gaga really got into the spirit of the program. She helped create a PSA that ran before each show, asking her 'little monsters' to text to donate and even offered to match these donations up to $25,000. Thanks to her passion for the cause, we were able to spread this message to all."

    Will you be offering your volunteering services in order to gain entry into a Gaga show? It's a good cause so you should.
