Some of you might be interested in this. - Rachel

Hi Rachel,

I don't know if you saw this but Paste Magazine has an MP3 collection for anybody who agrees to donate to the Haiti relief.  You don't even have to donate through them.  I thought the group might be interested in this.

Hope you're well.

Songs for Haiti

Today, Paste launched "Songs for Haiti" (http://songsforhaiti.org).

Like so many others, Paste has been moved by the tragedy facing the survivors of the Haitian earthquake.
Wondering how we could help, we remembered the website we built last year for the Save Paste Campaign. Thanks to your generosity, and that of over 150 artists who donated songs, we raised more than $250,000 to help our magazine survive its darkest hour.

But what we faced was nothing compared to what hundreds of thousands of people are experiencing right now in Haiti. The need is staggering, and help will be needed for months and years to come. To help raise money and keep awareness high, Paste and diverse artists���Ludacris, Of Montreal, Andrew Bird, Hanson, Umphrey's McGee, Switchfoot, Bruce Cockburn, Xiu Xiu, and over 200 others���are offering free MP3s (many previously unavailable) to everyone who donates to help Haiti.

You can donate through Paste or to a charity of your choice (just tell us), and you will have access to our Download Vault and 250 songs (and counting). We don���t think people should donate to the relief efforts in Haiti just to get a reward. But this gives Paste and artists a way to help, using the thing we���re most passionate about���music.

If you've already donated elsewhere, we hope you'll tell us and take advantage of the free songs. We want to make a strong statement of concern and show the generosity of our readers and the music community in general. We also hope you'll continue giving as you are able.

You can donate (or tell us about donations you made elsewhere) at:  SongsForHaiti.org.  You'll also find resources (banner ads, Twitter & Facebook icons, etc.) to help spread the word.

100% of money contributed through ���Songs for Haiti��� will be spread among three charities active in Haiti: Doctors Without BordersRed Cross, and Wyclef Jean���sYele Haiti Earthquake Fund. (Note that donations submitted directly to ���Songs for Haiti��� are not tax deductible, since Paste is not a charitable organization.)
