Music for Relief, Linkin Park’s global humanitarian assistance fund, is joining forces with The Entertainment Industry Foundation.
Music for Relief, which the members of Linkin Park formed in response to the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, will become the official crisis relief program of EIF. Since its inception, Music for Relief has raised $11 million to assist survivors of more than 30 natural disasters including Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans, and earthquakes in Haiti, Japan and Nepal.
"My bandmates and I founded Music for Relief in the spirit of collaboration; recognizing that we could do more in partnership with others," Linkin Park’s Brad Delson told Billboard in an exclusive statement. "Joining forces with EIF exemplifies the teamwork that will make both entities stronger."
