One of the countries that are most affected by coronavirus is Italy. Music has been especially hit hard due to a ban on public gatherings. In a way to help out and to be proactive, Italian metal publications Metalitalia.com and Spaziorock.it have taken it into their own hands to come up with a fantastic idea to help support the Italian Red Cross in their country.
The two publications have set up a GoFundMe page to help fundraise for the humanitarian aid association. They have a €10,000 target that they want to donate to help with: “emergency assistance, health, psychological, logistical, information, control, screening support and is carrying out many other crucial activities in the battle against this epidemic that is bringing the country to its knees”.
The page says: “We ask all of you fans, artists, record companies and professionals from the music sector to support our initiative,” adding: “The rock community has always been united and aimed at mutual support. A small gesture to help our community and return to normal as soon as possible, with the hope of seeing you all again soon under the stage!”
From all of us here at Rock My World, we applaud you!!!
All donations of any size will be appreciated and you can find their GoFundMe site right here.
