Comprised of musicians, music industry professionals, and fans, MUSIC FOR RELIEF is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing aid to natural disaster survivors and protecting the environment.
Music for Relief was founded by the band Linkin Park in response to the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami. Since inception in 2005 Music for Relief has raised over $9 million for survivors of multiple disasters across four continents including Hurricane Katrina, China’s Wenchuan earthquake, a cholera outbreak in Zimbabwe, earthquakes in Haiti and Japan in 2010, and Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines.
MFR has organized benefit concerts, online auctions, and events with multi-platinum musicians and celebrities to help rebuild and donate supplies to people in need. Music for Relief has also planted over 1.3 million trees to help reduce climate change.
MUSIC FOR RELIEF has two immediate goals. The first goal is to respond to natural disasters as they occur to help survivors recover and rebuild. The organization also recognizes the environmental consequences of global climate change, which has demonstrated the capability to accelerate and strengthen certain types of natural disasters. Therefore the second goal of MUSIC FOR RELIEF is to mitigate damage caused by natural disasters by reducing greenhouse gasses and educating the public about climate change.DONATE NOW
