Arcade Fire Ask You To Help Haiti



The Arcade Fire are the most recent addition to the Haitian relief effort, joining Wyclef Jean and the rest of the re-tweeting Twitterverse in calling for your help. In wake of the earthquake tragedy, the Canadian group went onto their website today and posted a call for your donations via the Partners in Health charity. This is much more than a case of celebrity joining the cause however. Not only have Win Butler and his band mates teamed-up with Partners in Health several times before, but co-leader Régine Chassagne also has ties to the country; her family emigrated to Canada from Haiti during the dictatorship of Jean-Claude Duvalier. No word yet on whether or not Wayne Coyne has something to say about this, then take back, then re-affirm a few weeks later, but it’s nice to see the band using their limited pull, reaching out, and sincerely asking for your help for a people who need it.
