The second prize winner will receive a signed comic from the team’s defender, Jerome Boateng. Other donators will be eligible to receive shirts, hoodies and other FC Bayern Munich gear.

Music For Relief is a non-profit founded by Linkin Park in 2005 dedicated to giving aid and relief to those affected by natural/environmental disasters. The band started it as a response to the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami, which devastated Indonesia, Sri Lanka, India, Thailand and surrounding islands. Since then, Music For Relief has raised more than $8 million for natural disaster survivors.
