Rockers Linkin Park have teamed up with officials at charity Music For Relief to light up Haiti.
The group has urged fans to help them provide solar powered lightbulbs to the families without power in Haiti this Christmas.

A $10 donation to Music For Relief will provide one solar powered lightbulb.

Linkin Park star Mike Shinoda says, “We chose Haiti for this project because the country faces severe energy poverty. There are 34 million people in the Western Hemisphere who have no access to modern energy; 8 million of them are in Haiti. By helping Haiti we can make a huge impact, so it’s a great place to start.”
