Linkin Park and Music for Relief are working to bring electricity to the 1.3 billion people worldwide that don’t have access to power.

The famous rock band is pledging its support for UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon’s Sustainable Energy for All initiative through Power the World.

To show their support, Linkin Park and Music for Relief launched a new campaign on Indiegogo to raise $8,000 to bring innovative clean energy solutions to families in Haiti, Uganda and South America.

All contributions are tax deductible and it doesn’t require huge contributions to actually make a difference. For just $10, a family in Haiti will receive a portable solar light bulb, a renewable energy tool that is environmentally friendly and long-lasting. A $50 contribution allows a family in South America to receive a SOCCKET Kit, a soccer ball that actually captures natural energy during play and then serves as an eco-friendly generator. For diehard Linkin Park fans, a $250 contribution – which provides 25 solar light bulbs to families in Haiti – contributors will receive a free ticket to a Lincoln Park show in Capetown and will get to meet the band. A $500 contribution earns a signed Linkin Park drumhead.

Check out the band’s Indiegogo campaign here and see how else the money will be used to provide electricity to those who need it most.
