Moby to donate concert profits to domestic violence charityPosted on 06/10/09
Moby expects to raise between $75,000 and $100,000 to help those affected by domestic violence after all funding for the state's domestic violence programme was cut in July. How will he raise that amount? Simple, the self declare Robin Musichood is to donate the profits from his upcoming shows in California (San Diego, San Francisco and Los Angeles). Moby is currently on a tour of North America.
This what Moby posted on his blog:
- "After looking at many different shelters and organizations in california I've decided to donate my california tour revenue to the california partnership to end domestic violence. (...) My hope is that by doing this I will enable domestic violence prevention workers to continue their work, and also encourage other people to step in and help raise funds for domestic violence prevention and care. Domestic violence is equal parts prison and torture for many women, and my sincere hope is that we can step up and help to protect women in California and end domestic violence."
And he adds:
- "Since Governor Schwarzenegger eliminated all State funding for shelter services in a July line-item veto, six California shelters have been forced to close, and dozens of others have laid off staff and cut services."
