Music for ReliefFollowing the wake of the Indian Ocean tsunami in 2004, alternative rockers Linkin Park founded a nonprofit called Music for Relief. They have planted over 810,000 trees, raised over $3 million for victims of natural disasters, and recently launched a response to disasters in Southeast Asia and the Pacific Islands, including typhoons in the Philippines, Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia, earthquakes that struck the Sumatra region of Indonesia and an earthquake and a subsequent tsunami in American Samoa, Western Samoa and Tonga.
