Linkin Park’s $500 Challenge
Yes, you will have to work for this one, but it’s for a good cause. Each supporter of Music For Relief (MFR) that raises at least $500 will be invited to a private Linkin Park concert taking place somewhere in or around Los Angeles.
Partnering with Linkin Park on this special fundraising effort is Japan’s hard-rock duo B’z, which recently contributed a track to MFR’s Download To Donate campaign and will also appear at the secret gig.
While this fundraising challenge does embody the spirit of rock ‘n’ roll, there are a few ground rules to follow, with the main one being you must reach the $500 goal by Aug. 24 to gain access to the show. However, if you want more, you gotta raise more. The top 50 fundraisers will get a meet-and-greet with Linkin Park and the top ten fundraisers will receive signed instruments from the band. If you totally dominate the competition and become the top fundraiser, you’ll be watching the show from the stage itself.
Of course, there are many ways to raise money for Music For Relief’s efforts to aid Japan’s Tsunami recovery efforts. One tool is the fund-raising technology brought into play by give2gether, which provides a web-based platform to help non-profit organizations raise money among the charity-minded denizens of social networking platforms. By using give2gether’s technology, you can set up a personalized fundraising webpage and instantly share it with your Facebook friends. Sure, you could raise money the old-fashioned way bake sales, paper drives and knocking on doors, but wouldn’t you rather work with something a little more … 21st century?
