The writers of this blog are not music critics, and they don't consider a second (or third, fourth or fifth) mortgage to be a perfectly reasonable course of action to pay for front-row tickets, but despite being a whole lot more middle aged than they were when they first put \x34Born in the U.S.A.\x34 or \x34The River\x34 down on the turntable, still feels like Bruce has something -- OK, a lot of things -- to say about our country and the way we live our lives, things that not a lot of other artists are saying. And whether he's talking about the knife that can cut this pain from your heart, the house that's waiting for you to walk in or what that flag flying over the courthouse means, he's nailing down feelings that are so universal that they can raise your spirits and break your heart at the same time. Plus, let¹s face it, the man rocks.

Did you know, more than 50 million people, including 17.2 million children live in households that experience food insecurity, meaning that they go without food and/or need to rely from time to time on emergency food sources. This represents more than one in ten households in the United States (10.9 percent).

There are a lot of charity organizations out there, so you may be wondering why we’re focusing on WhyHunger. Not only does WhyHunger support community-based grassroots organizations that fight hunger and poverty, they enlist performing artists like Bruce Springsteen to raise funds and awareness for these organizations fighting hunger and poverty in cities, towns and villages all across the world.

Artists Against Hunger & Poverty is WhyHunger’s program that partners with artists, the music community and the music industry to raise awareness and funds. Through music and the arts artists use their creative voices to make a difference in the world. On June 28th, “Homemade Jams: 100 House Concerts to End Hunger” WhyHunger’s house concert series begins. This DIY campaign gets musicians and music fans engaged in the fight against hunger through fundraising house concerts across the country. Got a favorite local musician or maybe you play music yourself? Pick a date, invite some friends and collect donations for WhyHunger all in the name of ending hunger and poverty.

Or, if you’re looking for some Bruce Springsteen memorabilia or experiences visit WhyHunger’s auction items on CharityBuzz. There you’ll find a limited edition signed A. M. Saddler photograph of Bruce Springsteen singing Thunder Road at Fenway Park 8/15/13 last year, two VIP GA tickets for Hard Rock Calling June 29-30, 2013, the opportunity to guest host on SiriusXM’s E Street Radio in NYC, or if you’ve got a lot of extra money laying around, an autographed guitar by Bruce Springsteen.
