Vancouver punk rockers Kill Matilda announced that they will be holding a fundraiser in their effort to help sponsor a Syrian Refugee named Sayf. From now until December 27th you can pay-what-you-can for the band’s latest EP Songs of Survival with 50% of the sales going towards the effort to help an organization called Rainbow Refugee bring this refugee in to Canada. The Canadian government will also match all of the money raised in this campaign.
The group posted the following statement to their Facebook page:
We are excited to announce that from now until December 27th, you will be able to pay what you want for our new album ‘Songs of Survival’ on Bandcamp, with 50% of the proceeds going to help sponsor Sayf to come to Canada.
