We know that many of you will be looking to give back this #GivingTuesday and as fellow music lovers and humanitarians, we wanted to share with you the charities that some of our artists are passionate about. Here’s a quick blurb about each charity with a link to where you can make a donation. We hope that you are as inspired by these causes as we are.
Aaron Lewis of Staind founded this organization, which focuses on “reviving rural communities throughout the greater New England area.”
Avril’s foundation “R.O.C.K.S.: Respect, Opportunity, Choices, Knowledge, and Strength in support of children and youth living with serious illnesses or disabilities.”
Cyndi’s organization focuses on uniting people in an effort to advance LGBTQ equality and to end youth homelessness.
Enrique has partnered with Save the Children to allow fans to make donations directly to the organization through his merch store. “Save the Children provides lifesaving relief to children and families affected by 50 humanitarian emergencies worldwide.”
He will also donate $12 from the sale of 2 special edition t-shirts on his site to the charity as well.
Fall Out Boy
Fall Out Boy proudly supports this organization, which is “dedicated to eliminating pediatric cancer and to providing hope and support to those who are touched by it.”
Lady Aid aims to make children’s lives better. They do this primarily by focusing on children’s hospitals in the US and Canada.
This season, Lady Antebellum has also partnered with a local Nashville company to create 3 holiday candles that are being sold in their fan-club store. “We will be donating 100% of our profits from these candles to families of hospitalized children who otherwise would not be able to be together during this holiday season.” All 3 gorgeous candles also come with a small card from Lady A! I smelled them the last time I went to the warehouse and they are amazing.
Music for Relief is a collaboration between artists, fans, and the music industry to provide aid to natural disaster survivors and protect the environment.
Miley’s organization’s mission is simple: “to rally young people to fight injustice facing homeless youth, LGBTQ youth and other vulnerable populations.”
My Morning Jacket
My Morning Jacket’s project is “dedicated to supporting and promoting actions, big and small, for positive change in the world.”
This organization works to “help minimize the financial burden associated with breast cancer for patients & survivors so that they can focus on recovery & quality of life.”
