Music for Relief was founded by the band Linkin Park in response to the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami. Since inception in 2005, Music for Relief has raised over $7 million for survivors of natural disasters across four continents including Hurricane Katrina, China’s Wenchuan earthquake, a cholera outbreak in Zimbabwe, earthquakes in Haiti and Japan in 2010, and Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines.
MFR has organized benefit concerts, online auctions, and events with multi-platinum musicians and celebrities to help rebuild and donate supplies to people in need. Music for Relief has also planted over 1 million trees to help reduce climate change.
MFR’s 10th anniversary celebration, Relief LIVE, featured special performances by Linkin Park & friends, and since it was last Saturday we can now reveal who those friends were. Our very own Mark Hoppus offered his talents as the evening's MC, as well as taking part in a special performance with Linkin Park and No Doubt's Adrian Young. To add to the incredible list of talent, Helmet's Page Hamilton performed with Linkin Park and the night's honoree, Steve Aoki did a very cool exclusive performance that was certainly a must-see.
