LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Mar 5, 2013) - LINKIN PARK, with their non-profit organization Music For Relief, has designed a one of a kind bracelet to benefit the victims of Hurricane Sandy.
The bracelet features a black adjustable band with two interlocking circles engraved with "Music For Relief." 100% of all proceeds from the bracelet will support Music For Relief's Sandy recovery effort in the US and in Haiti with partner, International Medical Corps.
