Her Name Is Calla fans may be aware that back in February, the band raised funds for victims of the Haiti earthquake via four auction lots on eBay. While successful, with such a limited amount avaialable, it assuredly meant many fans were disappointed at missing out on the exclusive offerings, which amongst a variety of albums and so forth, included things like season tickets for their current tour, a private gig and a song written and recorded exclusively for the winning bidder (which was me \o/).
More recently, in light of the devastating floods in Pakistan, they’ve once again decided to dedicate their time and talents to raise funds, this time going to Oxfam’s Pakistan Flood Response. This time, however, they’re running the campaign via Pledge Music, an increasingly popular format for raising the funds for all manner of musical projects. The aim is a little higher for this project, and for good reason. The fact that nearly 21 million people have been affected by what are deemed the worst floods in living memory would be reason enough to dig into your pocket and donate some cash, but in case you need the incentive, I can’t think of any better than some exclusive HNIC gear.
By conducting the campaign over at Pledge Music, HNIC have ensured no one need miss out on any of the exclusive content, with donations starting at £8 in order to gain access to the project download, all the way up to £1000 for a hand built valve guitar amp – with the option to donate additional funds no matter which one you choose.
So there you have it, if you’re still reading this, stop. Do yourself and, more importantly, the people of Pakistan a tremendous amount of good by clicking on that badge up there and pledging some cash to the cause.
