Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

Katy Perry is giv­ing away con­cert tick­ets to fans who help do­nate sup­plies to their lo­cal Boys & Girls Club of America. The 32-year-old singer has teamed up with the na­tional or­ga­ni­za­tion - which helps pro­vide after­school pro­grams to young peo­ple across America through so­cial-ac­tion plat­form Global Cit­i­zen, to en­cour­age peo­ple to do­nate both time and sup­plies to their lo­cal club. Fans of the 'Chained To The Rhythm' hit­maker that sign up to the scheme on Global Cit­i­zen's web­site and then do­nate sup­plies to their lo­cal Boys & Girls Club will be en­tered into a prize draw to win a pair of general ad­mis­sion tick­ets to Katy's 'WIT­NESS: The Tour'. If fans are able to go the ex­tra mile and ac­tu­ally vol­un­teer at their lo­cal club, they will be en­tered into an­other prize draw, where they have the chance to win a pair of VIP tick­ets to the tour and a meet-and-greet with Katy. In a state­ment an­nounc­ing the part­ner­ship, the 'Bon Ap­petite' singer said: "I'm a firm be­liever that ac­tions speak louder than tweets. I think we're all look­ing for a way to make real change be­yond just do­nat­ing our loose change." And in a post on the or­ga­ni­za­tion's web­site, fans are en­cour­aged to help young peo­ple "reach their full po­ten­tial." The post reads: "In part­ner­ship with Katy on her new "Wit­ness" al­bum and tour, we #Wit­nessTheFu­ture where all young peo­ple, es­pe­cially those who need us most, can reach their full po­ten­tial as pro­duc­tive, car­ing, responsible cit­i­zens. "You could win tick­ets to Katy's 2017-2018 tour in a city near you by get­ting in­volved with Boys & Girls Clubs and show­ing your sup­port! (sic)" Mean­while, Katy re­cently said she is striv­ing to re­main "au­then­tic", even if the process is "painful". She said: "I'm evolv­ing and learn­ing at the same time ... I try to stay my most au­then­tic self. That can be hard. Au­then­tic­ity is not al­ways pretty. Some­times it is messy, some­times it is strange, some­times it's painful."
