Fans Release 'Radiohead For Haiti' DVD To Raise Money For Oxfam, Band Approves
The fans/filmmakers have released a multi-cam (band-approved) video of the show made up of 24 tracks recorded by audience members. Although the concert is free to download, Radiohead has requested that viewers make a donation to Oxfam America.
“It was a SPECIAL show with a SPECIAL purpose – to raise badly needed funds for those who lived through the devastation,” said Radiohead filmmaker/fans. “And it seemed only appropriate that the DVD should carry on some of these goals. So on the behalf of our little team of three, I contacted the band/management to tell them about our project and asked to name a charity of their choice – so that those downloading the DVD could donate some money to it – however much they can (‘cause we trust Radiohead’s choices don’t we?). We were thrilled to hear that Radiohead supported our efforts 🙂 and named Haiti to be the ‘beneficiary’ of such donations.”
This is a perfect example of how the power of collaboration can be used to create something both amazing and innovative. Good work, Radioheads.
