Double Your Impact in the Fight Against Ebola: Depeche Mode’s Martin Gore Commits to $50,000 Match

After visiting the Direct Relief warehouse recently, Martin Gore of the band Depeche Mode is calling upon people like you to join the fight against Ebola. He has committed to matching up to $50,000 in donations for Ebola relief when you donate here.

“Right now we are witnessing a human catastrophe in West Africa with the Ebola crisis,” he says in a video released to raise funds and awareness for the response efforts. “Please join me in supporting Direct Relief.”

Direct Relief is sending protective gear such as gowns, masks, and goggles to health workers in Ebola-affected areas as well as medicines such as antibiotics and oral rehydration solutions to help treat patients.

So far, ten shipments valued at more than $862,000 have been sent to Sierra Leone and Liberia, with another airlift of urgently requested supplies on the way. But more is needed. Your contribution can have twice the life-saving impact when you join Martin and donate here: http://dpchm.de/ebola_dr.
