If you’re like us, then of late Lady Gaga has become more than just a ubiquitous pop star. She is a way of life. Her incredible stage shows and even more outrageous costumes have put her at a nexus of performance and pop-culture commentary. (If you don’t believe us, analyze “Bad Romance.” )

But, unless you were on this bandwagon early, there’s no way you’re scoring tickets to her sold-out Monster Ball Tour.

Enter Virgin Mobile's innovative volunteer program: Free VIP

Do something good, become part of something great.

Volunteer for the homeless, win free tickets to see Lady Gaga perform live.

Here's the scoop...

Over two million youth (between the ages of 12 and 24) will experience at least one episode of homelessness each year and over 100,000 youth sleep on the street for 6 months or more in America.

Youth homelessness is the result of other societal problems like poverty, drug abuse and addiction, homophobia, mental illness and domestic violence. Young people who've grown up homeless often spend much of their adult lives homeless.

The RE*Generation is Virgin Mobile's effort to empower a generation to help its own. We're bringing together organizations that care about homeless youth, and connecting them with young people who want to help.

You can donate your time and/or money. For every dollar that is collected, Lady Gaga will match it. Dollar for dollar, up to $25,000. Got some left over Holiday cash? Donate today.

Here is Lady Gaga herself to make the pitch on YouTube:

How can you get involved?

There are plenty of homeless youth agencies that need your help. In exchange for a few hours of your time, Virgin Mobile is offering select volunteers the opportunity to join them at one of Lady Gaga's upcoming shows during the Monster Ball Tour.

Select volunteers who sign up for a volunteer project AND complete the minimum required hours (or submit the minimum required number of Service Kits, as applicable) could earn a ticket, so be sure to sign up right away and show up for your activity! Ticket supplies are limited, and volunteer opportunities will fill up fast.
