Side-Line starts Turkish Emergency Humanitarian Assistance relief fund

🇺🇦 Side-Line stands with Ukraine - Show your Support

At Side-Line we have always supported charities around the world. Now the time has come to show our support for the people of Turkey who have been hit extremely hard by the earthquake that took place this morning, February 6th.

The massive 7.8 magnitude earthquake shook Turkey and Syria causing massive damage early and a huge number of victims. Those numbers are expected to rise dramatically as many buildings collapsed with large numbers of people buried under the rubble.

We have set up a separate crowdfund page where you can send your donation. If you want to donate via Bandcamp, that keep on reading below.

Also this, ALL proceedings from the compilations on our Bandcamp page at this month will go entirely to Turkish Emergency Humanitarian Assistance as there is an urgent need for medical supplies and so on. We are working with local people to distribute the funds and aid.

IMPORTANT: The funds gathered from the Ukrainian charity compilations during this time will be covered by Side-Line so that we can continue to raise funds for Ukraine as well.

Let’s unite once again to show we can make the world a better place.

There is no time to loose.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.

The donations are safely powered by Paypal.
