LINKIN PARK - Establish Charity To Help Tsunami Victims

MTV.com is reporting that LINKIN PARK have teamed up with the American Red Cross to establish Music for Relief, a charity dedicated to providing aid to victims of the destruction caused by the tsunamis that hammered southern Asia earlier this week.

LINKIN PARK have donated $100,000 to get things going, and they're hoping their fans and musical brethren will follow suit.

"As a band, we were in a position to help, but this needs to be a lot broader effort — both by our fans and by other musicians," LINKIN PARK guitarist Brad Delson said. "If one of our fans can donate $10, then that's going to help, and the faster we can do it, the better.

"Here in the States, we might not think that we're directly affected by all this, but we can help. And the more we can do, and the quicker we can do it, the more lives we can save," Delson continued. "Obviously, there's been a horrendous, unparalleled loss of life. But a lot more people are going to die from being homeless and the problems with the water and diseases."

In June, LINKIN PARK played a massive outdoor concert at the Impact Arena in Bangkok, Thailand. Today, a few miles away, that city's international airport serves as a makeshift triage station, with victims of the disaster receiving medical treatment on the tarmac.

"We played what was the largest Thai concert in the past 10 years. It was an amazing show, and I carry with me the hospitality of the Thai people and the people of southern Asia," Delson said. "And having been there, I can just say that people there were so welcoming to us, and I really hope that through this effort we can help in some small way." Read more.
