We're thrilled to announce that the Impact Channel, PayPal and MySpace have chosen the New Orleans Musicians Relief Fund as one of the charities to benefit from a brand new fund-raising badge. NOMRF is in good company with worthy causes including OxFam and One.org.
The PayPal contributions start with $5, because we believe that every dollar counts. As a green charity we have never sent out glossy brochures, so this is as close as our grass-roots fund will get to making a major impact for the musicians of New Orleans.
The Fund started by and for displaced musicians still rents no office space to help each donor dollar stretch further. Hundreds of grants have gone out thanks to supporters like Dr. John and REM, as well as caring individuals from around the world.
After two years of doing their best to rebuild their lives, many musicians are still in Houston, Dallas or much further away. And we're losing them too soon. Your donation can make a direct difference in the life of a displaced New Orleans musician.
Please email questions or comments on your PayPal Badge experience and we'll forward the feedback to MySpace. Thanks, as always, for supporting the music.
