Local Bands: Help Paste Help Haiti
The Jayhawks, The Low Anthem, Ben Folds, Bob Mould, Ludacris, The Decemberists, and several dozen other big names, including Fort Worth’s The Burning Hotels, have donated songs to a Haiti charity effort by Paste magazine. Via the fund- and awareness-raiser, “Songs for Haiti,” Paste will spread proceeds among three active charities in Haiti: Doctors Without Borders, Red Cross, and Wyclef Jean’s Yele Haiti Earthquake Fund. The magazine says, “We don’t think people should donate to the relief efforts in Haiti just to get a reward,” namely a song or songs. “But ['Songs for Haiti'] gives Paste and artists a way to help, using the thing we’re most passionate about: music.” Local artists, upload your songs here.
