Music for Relief was founded by the band Linkin Park in response to the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami. Since inception in 2005 Music for Relief has raised over $6 million for survivors of multiple disasters across four continents including Hurricane Katrina, China’s Wenchuan earthquake, a cholera outbreak in Zimbabwe, earthquakes in Haiti and Japan in 2010 and Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines.

Along with that all, those which donate will be entered for a chance to win a hangout with Hart before his next show. The goal is set to raise $10,000 and the more someone pledges the better their chances are of winning and the bigger the impact for Music for Relief. The campaign ends at 11:59 p.m. PST on July 28th, 2014. Take part in the campaign here.
