Default how to donate money directly to the band?

Hey everyone,

I was wondering if there was a well known and easy way to donate money to the Foo Fighters and in case there isn't: Why not?

regards

Yeah just buy Foo Fighters CDs, dvds, and other merchandise as much as you can. Concerts tickets and live show merch is probably their bread and butter so don't be stingy there. Buying it directly from the online store is probably the best way to ensure they get a bigger piece of the pie.

Why don't you donate to a favorite Charity in Foo Fighters name or something. I think they are good on money.

yeah, support your favorite independent rock bands who still put out kickass rock records no one knows about. the money is better off going to them. im sure dave would feel the same way since we all buy the FF stuff as it is.

I will set up a paypal account if you would like to donate to them. Everyone else is welcome to donate too. It will be in my name and will appear to have all of the money going directly to me. That will just be an illusion. Eventually all of my money goes to the band.

I usually just wait until they come to town and throw loose change at them, but maybe I'm just old fashioned?

Dave himself has said he has made more money than he ever thought he would in his life. This was back when he was in litigation with Courtney Love, in the early 2000s when he was around 31 years old. With 10 more years of touring and sales behind him, I think he is still pretty comfortable.

This thread suprised me, it's like donating to Bill Gates or something. Don't think they need anymore money through donations at least.

Anyway, just as a suggestion you could "donate" to them by buying me a ticket for their concert if they come here

they really don't need it, so you can just purchase something official, that way you give them the money and gets something for yourself. or if you just like to give it away, choose someone who really needs it and donate it in foo fighters name, like Jill said.

1. BUY THEIR MUSIC
2. BUY THEIR MERCH
3. BUY TICKETS TO THEIR SHOWS.

LATHER, RINSE, REPEAT. Also, why the hell would you need to donate money to them? THEY'RE FUCKIN' ROCK STARS! Choose someone who really needs it, like kids in Haiti or people who lost everything in the tornadoes in Joplin, Missouri.

Typical. Here I am flat broke and there's dudes wanting to throw their money at dudes with million dollar homes and more gear than a guitar shop.
