Josh Homme may not be a touring member of Eagles of Death Metal, but his heart was certainly with the band in Paris on Friday. To show his solidarity with his brethren both in the band and the city, Homme’s Sweet Stuff Foundation has begun taking donations to help the families of victims killed in last week’s terrorist attacks.
Sweet Stuff was founded to provide support for children’s music programs as well as those within the music community who struggle with health issues and disabilities. From now through December 31st, all donations to the charity will go towards helping the surviving family members of those who lost their lives in the Bataclan and throughout the city. Those who are able to donate $100 or more will be gifted a limited edition “I Give” T-shirt.
In a tweet announcing the donation plans, Sweet Stuff said, “Thank you for a moment to pause. Now time to help. Please donate.” As for the other members of EoDM, the band understandably canceled their remaining tour dates. Yesterday, they released a statement saying, “Although bonded in grief with the victims, the fans, the families, the citizens of Paris, and all those affected by terrorism, we are proud to stand together with our new family, now united by a common goal of love and compassion.”
