As we all know, the devastation from the earthquake in Haiti is massive. Here's how we, as fans of Switchfoot, can make our presence known. Switchfoot has been tweeting, asking us to help in donation funds to Haiti, and here's how we can.
Razoo.com is doing this thing where they are matching donations in order to maximize on the giving of the people. Here's what they have to say on their website:
Razoo and our partners are providing matching funds to help you maximize donations toward Haiti relief. Beginning 12:00pm EST on Friday, January 15, 2010, your donation to the nonprofits below will be matched until funds are depleted (full campaign rules below).
Razoo is a leading online giving platform that has processed over $17 million in donations to 4,907 US nonprofits. 100% of your giving on the Match for Haiti Campaign will go to your designated nonprofit. Learn more how donations are sent to your nonprofit here.
If your organization would like to help others maximize giving, you can increase the pool of matching funds by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Go over there now and help out! I'm currently typing this from a warm, dry, comfortable college dorm room, and can't help but feel immensely blessed for what I've been given. I'm sure we all, at some level or another, can identify with this... others around the world aren't so fortunate. Let's give to them even at least a fraction of what we've been given. Every breath is a gift, every desk is a blessing, every ounce of water is not guaranteed.
Now, on to our regular updates for the day. A bit of a slow news day, so far. Here are some videos from the January 13th show in Vancouver, BC.
And, a new Daily Foot is here: Portland, OR
Also, we hear that Andy Barron is working on the new Switchfoot podcast. All we can say is, THANK YOU!
Please also go here to see a list of stations already playing "Mess of Me" and phone numbers to call in and request the song with!
HERE are some request links you can do online if you can't reach a phone. Please be SURE to fill out a few of these links every day, especially the ones at or near your area! It is our collective efforts that will ensure the success of this and any future Switchfoot single.
As such, I'll be posting the request links still every day, just to have them available. But please request with discretion. Thanks everyone! Also, all the station links posted below are guaranteed to have played the song at least once.
