Media Alert: Local Volunteers in San Francisco Gather for Group Volunteer Activities to Earn Tickets to Upcoming Monster Ball Tour Starring Lady Gaga This Weekend

Great Photo & Video Opportunities

WARREN, NJ--(Marketwire - December 3, 2009) -

WHAT:     Virgin Mobile USA, sponsor of the upcoming Lady Gaga North
          American tour, is providing volunteers in the San Francisco area
          an opportunity to earn tickets to Virgin Mobile Presents the
          Monster Ball starring Lady Gaga coming to San Francisco on
          December 13 and 14.

          A group of 20 volunteers will gather on Saturday to assemble
          furniture, do gardening, wrap gifts for the holiday season and
          assemble toiletry kits for homeless youth.

          For the first time, Virgin Mobile USA will extend its innovative
          "FREE.I.P." program to a national tour, offering fans who
          volunteer their time to homeless youth organizations access to
          free show tickets.

          Virgin Mobile USA's "FREE.I.P." volunteer program originated at
          Virgin Mobile FreeFest, held this past August.   The initiative
          gives concert fans the chance to receive premium tickets in
          exchange for volunteer hours at local homeless youth
          organizations throughout the country.  This past summer, the
          "FREE.I.P." program at FreeFest generated more than 30,000 hours
          of community service by concert-goers.  The volunteer program
          will start with Lady Gaga's San Francisco concert on December
          13 and 14 and include all U.S. cities on the tour through
          January 24.

WHEN:     December 5, 2009 from 9 a.m. - 5:30 p.m.
