Pink’s new Aus TV ad “Youth Off The Streets”
"The acclaimed performer recently shot a commercial for Father Chris Riley’s organisation and has lent her song The Great Escape to a new campaign after being meeting with troubled youths during successive tours.
“When I was on the Funhouse Tour back in 2009 I read a story in the Sunday papers about Youth Off The Streets,” Pink said.
“I totally related to it because I could have been one of them.
“I first met some of these kids on that tour and when I came back last year I met more of them at my Sydney concerts. It made me want to further support this great organisation and give these kids a fighting chance.” Pink has met repeatedly with the homeless during her visits to Australia.
Father Riley said Pink had had a huge impact on Australian youths who had been motivated by her music during difficult times.
“This campaign would not have been made without the support of Pink. She has been very generous with her time and has been a great inspiration and role model to the teenage girls in our programs,” Father Riley said.
“Youth Off The Streets are working to help young people who are homeless. The voices of homeless young people go unheard in Australia.’’
