Participants in this project do their best to support great disasters victims, like the tsunami that struck Japan this year, and fight against global warming, which is becoming more and more dangerous

Foundation The tsunami caused the death of at least 230.000 people most of them in Indonesia, Shri Lanka, India and Thailand Millions of people were left homeless, lost their land by the waves and a great number of children died or lost their parents
Foundation Therefore Linkin Park founded Music for Relief to help those people. Their concept was that if they donated money, other artists and their fans would do so With this in mind, they started reaching out to others in the music community to get involved and became the founders of Music For Relief.

Website idea Still there are lots of things that have not been mentioned and for this reason I suggest visiting http://www.musicforr elief.org Also I believe that the creation of a column it in our blog that would be kept up-to-date and solely devoted to it might actually encourage more people to take part and I think it is worth it Note this was just a sample, if you want to learn more about this agree in creating the column
