Macklemore & Ryan Lewis! Pearl Jam! Slog! The fans of all three of these beloved hometown treasures are raising money to save YouthCare’s Orion Center—which does life-saving work right here in Seattle—and in the process we're finding out whose fans are the best fans! Whose fans will do the most to help homeless youth? Here's where we're at on Day 12...
