Virgin Mobile Freefest is based on the premise of giving back to the community.  Though it is basically a free music festival they do take donations and accept volunteer work.  In the past two years they have raised $300,000 for youth homelessness, had 55,000 hours of volunteer time, and created 10,000 outreach kits.  Donations help secure outreach services and shelter for homeless youth through their RE*Generation program.

As of this writing all of the free tickets are free'd out but there are still a couple of ways to get them.  One is to be a volunteer.  Virgin Mobile has partnered with homeless youth organizations across the country that need your support.  The other way is to purchase a Fan E-Pak.  This includes a ticket, a donation to youth homelessness,  a limited edition festival t-shirt, early admission to the festival, and a souvenir cup that comes with a $1 discount on domestic draft beer  and fountain sodas at the festival.
