Wishlist Party... Origins?

The last time life let me really immerse myself in following Pearl Jam on tour was in 2000. I don't remember anything like Wishlist Parties in honor of charities back then. Can anyone point me to the origin story of this movement? What a great thing for PJ fans to do!

    Back in 2004 at the Vote for Change tour in St. Louis some people organized a gathering prior to the show at a local bar.  They asked that people attending bring canned goods for a local charity.  It was a great success and I believe everything grew from there.
