Alternative rockers Wilco and Radiohead have both come up with creative ways to help the earthquake victims of Haiti.
The Chicago based members of Wilco are giving away a free album of songs recorded from two previous concerts. All the band asks for in return is that after downloading, fans donate $15 or more to Doctors Without Borders or Oxfam.
In other news, Thom Yorke and his bandmates performed a benefit concert last night in Los Angeles, where tickets were auctioned off to the highest bidder. According to “Rolling Stone,” Radiohead’s show reportedly raked in $572,754 for Oxfam. The highest price a fan paid for a single ticket? $2,000.
Check out a video from Radiohead’s performance at the Henry Fonda Theatre here:
What do you think about celebrity donations to relief efforts? Should we be supporting the Haitian people any way we can, or should we be attempting to fix problems in our own country first?
