Paste Magazine Launches Songs For Haiti

It is hard to ignore the immense travesty that has occurred in Haiti following a record breaking earthquake that has a death toll in the thens of thousands already. Since the quake, the world has rallied to help the people of Haiti, some by going there, some by sending aid. Paste Magazine has stepped up encourage the giving with a cool little deal. Read below to find out:

Like so many others, Paste has been moved by the tragedy facing the survivors of the Haitian earthquake. We have launched “Songs for Haiti” (songsforhaiti.org) as a way to raise money and keep awareness high. A diverse array of artists — Ludacris, Of Montreal, Andrew Bird, Hanson, Umphrey’s McGee, Switchfoot, Bruce Cockburn and over 200 others — have donated MP3s (many unreleased) for us to give everyone who donates to help Haiti.

You can donate through Paste or to a charity of your choice (just tell us), and you will have access to our Download Vault and 250 songs (and counting). We don’t think people should donate to the relief efforts in Haiti just to get a reward. But this gives Paste and artists a way to help, using the thing we’re most passionate about—music.

To donate, click below. 100% of money contributed through “Songs for Haiti” will be spread among three charities active in Haiti: Doctors Without Borders, Red Cross, and Wyclef Jean’s Yele Haiti Earthquake Fund.

Andy Zipf- “See No Saviour”, I Sing Hallelujah
Ben + Vesper- “LuvInIdleness”, “An Honest Bluff”, “Especially We”
