Arcade Fire Matching Donations To Haiti Charity For The Holidays

Arcade Fire Haiti Donations

If you're trying to think of a good gift this year, the Arcade Fire is recommending giving their money to Haiti!

The band, who won a Grammy last year for Album of the Year, is matching any donations to Kanpe, a charity dedicated to helping Haiti's most "vulnerable populations in their fight for a better future."

Frontman Win Butler announced the fundraiser on the band's website, writing:

"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. We will also send a nifty little post card, signed by Regine 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, let’s put the upper limit at 300,000$… Have a great holiday!"

We're sure every little bit helps and what Arcade Fire fan wouldn't want a personal post card from their favorite band?
