Sony is giving gamers the chance to give back to the world, or more specifically the Global Inheritance environmental charity during the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival.  To do your part in saving the world all you have to do is take a photo of a JAGTAG (a 2D barcode) inside the PlayStation section and forward the photo to 524824.  Once you receive a reply from LittleBigPlanet's Sackboy you'll you've completed your mission.  For every 1,000 text messages received Sony will make a cash donation to the Global Inheritance charity whose goal is to make recycling and alternative energy more of a reality.  Inside the "PlayStation Oasis" lounge there will be music playing from a custom playlist that includes music from artists who are attending Coachella.  Besides great music, air-conditioning, lounge chairs, and internet connectivity gamers will have the chance to play through the utterly amazing LittleBigPlanet, Buzz!, Fat Princess, Flower, InFamous, PixelJunk Eden, and Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time.
