One of Seattle’s most beloved bands just rallied the city into raising millions of dollars for the homeless.

Peal Jam played two concerts at Safeco Field this week as a means of getting the community together to address extreme poverty.

In addition to encouraging 100 Seattle businesses to join in on the fundraising efforts, the shows raised over $11 million, 90% of which will be donated.

The money is set to be distributed to 40 different homeless organizations based out of Seattle.
