Arcade Fire had a pretty good year, including their Grammy win for Album of the Year. Now, they’re giving back this holiday season.

The band has announced they will match donations to Kanpe, a charity organization helping to rebuild after Haiti’s earthquake last year, according to contactmusic. Win Butler, frontman for the band, wrote on their website “If you are having a hard time deciding what to get your friends and family for gifts this year, give them our money! For any donation you make to Kanpe this holiday season, the band will match it.”

If you donate, along with knowing you helped people in Haiti you’ll also get a signed postcard. Butler wrote, “We will also send a nifty little post card, signed by (bandmate) Regine (Chassagne) and I, to put under the tree, or wherever you put your gifts (it’s not our business). For any silicone valley jerks who might try to bankrupt us, lets put the upper limit at $300,000.”
