In 2010 a devastating 7.0 magnitude earthquake struck Haiti, a country that was already suffering from extreme poverty and environmental degradation.
Responding just days after the quake, Music for Relief launched an innovative fundraising program called Download to Donate for Haiti. MFR compiled previously unreleased songs by A-list artists for digital release on musicforrelief.org. Supporters were asked to donate whatever they could. Funds raised provided immediate aid as well as long-term sustainable rebuilding solutions for the people affected by the earthquake..
- More than 75,000 people downloaded the songs
- Average donation was $16.47 (no donation was required)
- The Download to Donate widget generated 9.7M views and 1.75M plays
