Hear Vampire Weekend, Beck, Snow Patrol and More To Help
One hundred percent of the $10 retail price will go directly to Oxfam America, an international relief and development organization that creates lasting solutions to poverty, hunger, and injustice. In Haiti, Oxfam's efforts include providing water, latrines, plastic sheeting, cash, and relief materials to those who have gathered in temporary camps both within the city and in hard-hit outlying areas.
"Thanks to the generosity of our partners, Filter Magazine and Hatch Show Print, the Hear to Help CD enables AE customers to experience a compilation of special tracks that are not available elsewhere," said Steve Kubinski, vice president of marketing operations, American Eagle Outfitters.
