banner_03.jpgUnder the banner of the org Music for Relief, Linkin Park is once again teaming with artists like Avril Lavigne, Smashing Pumpkins, Madonna, and the Deftones to help people in unfortunate circumstances.  Last month, the organization raised money to assist those affected by the California wildfires. This time, they’re focusing on the tragedy of the recent Cyclone in Bangladesh. From the release,

“On November 15th Cyclone Sidr brought winds of up to 150 miles an hour, creating a 15 foot sea surge, devastating coastal regions in Bangladesh. The storm killed approximately 3,500 people, left over 40,000 injured while over 800 people are still missing. 8.5 million people have been affected by the cyclone and tens of thousands of people are still in urgent need of food, shelter, medical supplies and clean drinking water.”

Up for auction on the eBay site are signed posters, XBOX360s, guitars, and VIP tickets for 4 to various Linkin Park concerts around the world. Absolutely all funds raised will be distributed in the region to help provide food, shelter, medical supplies and clean drinking water to survivors.

Hit the auction to take a look and help out a great cause!
