We’re not CNN or anything, but you’d have to be completely oblivious or willfully ignorant to have not heard about the devastating earthquake in Haiti last Tuesday. Well over 100,000 are reported to have perished in Haiti’s capital Port au Prince alone, and rescue and recovery efforts are still underway.
While some may have donated to relief efforts already, Sargent House and Rodriguez-Lopez Productions are giving incentive to those who haven’t yet by offering up their recent digital sampler for download with all proceeds going to Doctors Without Borders. The 18-track sampler has music by The Mars Volta’s Omar Rodriguez Lopez and Sargent House artists including Red Fang, These Arms are Snakes, and Red Sparowes, among many others. It’s available in all digital formats as an instant download for whatever anyone wants to donate. While we’ve all got our own financial problems, an unprecedented amount of help and relief for this catastrophe is required, and you can get new music and help at the same time. Don’t be a d-bag – pick this up.
