Dave Matthews Band has joined forces with Linkin Park, Alanis Morissette, The All-American Rejects, Enrique Iglesias, Hoobastank, Kenna, Lupe Fiasco, Peter Gabriel and Slash for DOWNLOAD TO DONATE FOR HAITI, a recovery effort to aid the nation of Haiti in the aftermath of the devastating January 12th earthquake. Millions of Haitians are in need of food, water, medical attention, clothing and shelter just to make it through the days ahead.
Working with Music For Relief, a non-profit founded by Linkin Park following the 2004 Asian tsunamis, each of the artists have graciously donated never-before-released music to help raise funds and promote awareness of the recovery efforts. Dave Matthews Band’s Typical Situation from 07.05.1997 Irvine Meadows Amphitheatre in Irvine, CA has been selected for the charitable release. DOWNLOAD TO DONATE FOR HAITI provides fans with the opportunity to download a collection of exclusive songs by their favorite artists and then donate funds on a purely voluntary basis. Each download is a donation. Fans can download the 9 unreleased songs at musicforrelief.org and via the websites of each participating artist. DMB encourages you to donate what you can. Every donation will help and 100% of funds received will go directly to the Haiti efforts.
Funds raised through the program will support the United Nation’s rapid disaster response efforts through the UN Foundation, the long-term rebuilding of sustainable homes with Habitat for Humanity, and Dave Matthews Band’s Bama Works, Haitian relief efforts. DMB is developing a full-scale plan for long-term assistance to Haiti – please stay tuned for more information. DOWNLOAD. LISTEN. DONATE. SPREAD THE WORD. BRING HOPE.
