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.
