One hundred percent of the proceeds will be directed to Save the Children for the duration of the campaign, which runs through May 11th. Several participating artists have direct ties to Japan including Mike Shinoda, co-lead vocalist of Linkin Park, and Doug Robb of Hoobastank, who are both of Japanese decent.

We are proud to partner with Save the Children, which has decades of experience in helping children and families impacted by disaster.”
