Bandsintown and Fondation de France Create Text Message Code for Paris Donations
Since the tragic events in Paris took the lives of so many just one week ago, including at the iconic French venue Le Bataclan, Bandsintown has focused their efforts on helping music fans, artists, and their friends in music who have been affected by The Paris Attacks.
We have personally spent countless nights dancing to and singing along there with their favorite artists, and have only good memories of Le Bataclan.
Starting by making a donation to and supporting The Nick Alexander Memorial Fund, this step was just the beginning of what the company will be doing to support victims and fight against terrorism.
Now, they are working closely with Fondation de France to offer an easy way for music fans to donate money to those who need it. By texting code PARIS to 20222 to people who want to help the cause can donate $10 to Fondation de France.
“The $10 donation is a fixed donation. We have thought long and hard about this cause, and how much money will be needed to make an impact. Every little bit helps, but this $10 donation is an affordable way to help support victims in a countless number of ways. Not only can you donate to help victims directly, but you can spread the word to help us participate in the larger cause of fighting against terrorism. They want to silence us, but we won't let them. We will play from the stage, louder than ever”

100% of the proceeds will be paid out to the charity!
