Here’s How To Join Your Favorite Bands in Helping Harvey Victims

It is great to see many of our favorite bands pledging to help those affected by Hurricane Harvey.  Scroll through and catch up on what they are doing…and don’t forget, we ask you to consider texting HARVEY to 90999.  Doing that will donate $10 to the American Red Cross relief fund that directly helps those affected by this devastating storm.  It will be years until things are back to normal in that area.  Every consideration we can give helps.  — [eric]  

Weezer:

The band stands with Texas.  That’s the direct message on a t-shirt available for fans to purchase, with 100% of the profits going to the American Red Cross Hurricane Harvey relief fund.

 

Blink-182:

The band created a limited-edition tee in which all the funds will go to the American Red Cross Hurricane Harvey relief fund.

 

In addition, Mark Hoppus is encouraging people to clean out their closets through his clothing line, Hi My Name Is Mark.  He teamed up with a skate shop in Houston, who will be distributing the donations on the ground.

 

Fall Out Boy:

The band announced that all the proceeds from their November show in Houston will benefit Hurricane Harvey victims.  Plus, they also made a special Texas-themed t-shirt to help those affected in the area.

 

Bleachers:

Jack Antonoff specifically targeted helping the Montrose Center in Houston — a center for LGBTQ residents to go in search of counseling, substance abuse treatment, and advocacy for the community.  Jack pledged to match up to $10,000 in donations.​

 

Coldplay: 

A few days after being forced to cancel their Houston date, Coldplay put together a country-music inspired tune called “Houston #1.”  While the band says it would never be played again, there always remains the possibility that it could get released as a charity single, right?
