Shaggy Make a Difference Foundation, Shaggy & Friends Benefit Concert!

Shaggy is doing a beautiful thing for the Bustamente Hospital for Children in Kingston, Jamaica, and you can help! The Bustamente Hospital is the main pediatric hospital in the West Indies, which’ resources to treat children are stretched to the limit because of a lack of facilities. Expensive medical equipment and a lack of public and private funding counteract the hospital’s ability to provide the necessary health care required to treat each and every child.

Shaggy has been supporting the hospital for years and he now created the Shaggy Make a Difference Foundation to help raise funds for the hospital to save many more children’s lives. You can read all about it on Shaggy’s official Shaggy Make a Difference Foundation site. It has information about how you can help and about Shaggy’s upcoming benefit concert. The site also has a lot of photos and videos.

The Shaggy & Friends benefit concert, 1 ticket equals saving 1 life, will be held on Saturday January 3 2009 on the Jamaica House Lawn featuring

none other than Shaggy himself, Macy Gray, Buju Banton, Sean Paul, J. Holliday, Tony Rebel, Sean Kingston, Tarrus Riley, Luciano, Tesanna Chin, Da’Ville, Freddie McGregor, Etana, Allison Hinds, Elephant Man, Marcia Griffiths, Tyson Beckford and many more.

The gates open at 6 PM, the concert starts at 8 PM. Tickets are available at Susie’s Bakery, White Bone’s Restaurant and Music Mart at Twin Gates Plaza. All proceeds will be donated to the Bustamente Hospital for Children!

Here’s a video featuring Shaggy and many more supporting Shaggy’s benefit concert on the lawns of Jamaica House on January 3. I hope the support turns out huge, it can help save many children’s lives! The line-up for the concert is stellar, check out the video below!
