[DONATE] QN5 Charity Auction To Raise Funds For Haiti Relief
Bid On The The QN5 Charity Auctions To Provide Relief To Haiti. | [BID NOW]
The people of Haiti need our help.
For those that don’t know Haiti was hit with a 7.0 magnitude earthquake yesterday. It essentially destroyed Port-Au-Prince and CNN has reported that nearly 100,000 people have died. Haiti is the poorest country in the western hemisphere and these people literally have nothing to work with – so this is just about the worst place something like this could happen.
QN5 Music is doing what it can to help by auctioning off super-rare autographed collector’s items this week. These are out of print pressings and memorabilia you won’t find anywhere else. Remember, it’s not about what these are worth, but about what we can raise to help those in need. So, let’s bring in as much as we can.
To further sweeten the deal, we’ve been advised by longtime blue schooler, PretendGirl, that her company, Salesforce.com Foundation is MATCHING DONATIONS up to 100k through the American Red Cross. Meaning, you give $20…they give $20 to match you. The more you give, they more they give. So, 100% of the proceeds of these auctions will be sent through them to the American Red Cross to DOUBLE THE AMOUNT we bring in on each item. It’s a win-win.
The Kick Off Auction – “Home Sweet Home” 12” Vinyl Single
We’re kicking things off at our official QN5 Ebay Page, with an autographed out-of-print pressing of Substantial’s first 12” vinyl single release in Japan, “Home Sweet Home”. Produced by Nujabes and released in the Spring of 2000, this single kicked off Sub’s career.
This is impossible to get anywhere, and even more impossible to get with Substantial’s autograph on it. (NOTE: How can you resist that face?).
OTHER WAYS YOU CAN DONATE DIRECTLY:
• YELE HAITI – Wyclef Jean’s Haitian Charity – Text to “Yele” to 501501, you will automatically donate $5 via your phone bill. 100% Percent goes to the relief effort.
• AMERICAN RED CROSS – Text “Haiti” to 90999 and give $10 to the American Red Cross.
•DOCTORS WITHOUT BORDERS – Provides emergency medical care for the men, women, and children affected by the earthquake in Haiti.

HELP ANY WAY YOU CAN
We know life goes on in your own world, and it doesn’t affect you directly, but best believe if you were in the same situation, you’d hope that someone would bother to help or care. Our thoughts and prayers go out to those of you with friends and family in Haiti.
