Incubus’ Make Yourself Foundation to Raise $20K for Oklahoma Tornado Victims
The city of Moore, Okla. was recently in the headlines after the town was devastated by deadly tornados. In the past few days, many in the public eye have rallied around the town, including Incubus who just announced a partnership with RYOT that will seek to bring an additional $20,000 in relief for victims of the natural disaster.
Incubus’ charitable arm, the Make Yourself Foundation, is planning to match 100 percent of Ryot.org’s donations (up to $10,000) over the next week and in return donors will have the opportunity to win merchandise, autographs and personalized tweets from the band.
The top incentive is a one-of-a-kind tapestry, complete with original hand-illustrated art by the band’s members. The band drew on the tapestry daily during their Make Yourself Foundation meet-and-greets on their ‘If Not Now, When?’ tour. The first person to donate $2,500 or more will receive the tapestry.
The band’s DJ Kilmore has autographed a scratch vinyl he’s used live at shows. The other members of Incubus have also autographed the vinyl, and if you’re one of the first 50 people to donate $100 or more, you’ll receive one.
Elsewhere, $25 will get you a personalized “thank you” tweet from the band, while $10 or more and tweeting about the donation will enter you into a random drawing to be one of five people to receive a personalized “thank you” tweet.
Incubus’ Make Yourself Foundation has disbursed over $1.3 million since its inception in 2004. The band has donated to over 50 organizations and recently gave a round of grants to eight organizations that totaled over $100K.
Donations can be made at the RYOT.org Make Yourself Foundation website.
