Music for Relief, a non-profit founded by rock band Linkin Park to aid victims of natural disasters and help prevent those disasters, has teamed up with All Hands Volunteers to devise a win-win campaign for music fans and Oklahoma families alike.
By making a $10 donation through Omaze, contestants will be entered in a raffle to meet Juanes backstage in NYC, attend Crystal Method’s album release party in LA, or hang out with Linkin Park in their LA recording studio. The prizes also include a flight and a stay for up to two people at a 4-star hotel.
Contestants are encouraged to enter numerous times to increase their chances of winning, with each dollar going to support families in Oklahoma affected by the tornado. Recovery projects will include the rebuilding of homes and schools, and psychosocial support.
Music for Relief also encourages people to donate clothes and other goods to help families who lost their homes. A series of tornadoes struck central Oklahoma in May, destroying communities, killing dozens of people and injuring others.
Music for Relief was established by Linkin Park in 2005 to provide aid for those affected by the Indian Ocean Tsunami. Continuing and expanding on those efforts, Music for Relief has since donated more than $5,000,000 to victims of natural disasters.
