NIN, the Offspring Join Katrina Relief
September 13, 2005


Jim Guerinot, the president of Rebel Waltz, the management company in charge of such acts as Nine Inch Nails, Hot Hot Heat, the Offspring, and No Doubt, has taken it upon himself to catalyze relief efforts for Katrina victims who are not being helped by government support. Guerinot, along with music technology companies like SpeakerCraft and the Home Technology Group of Nortek-Inc., decided they wanted to get necessities directly to suffering in the Gulf Coast region -- without the red tape. The group found a Costco in East Texas where they could get supplies cheaply, and a member of the Offspring who is also a pilot donated his time and money to flying a group of volunteers to Hammond, Louisiana. The group of rockers and industry folk managed to get 1.2 million pounds of supplies to a nearby relief center in Covington, Louisiana. According to spokesperson for Rebel Waltz, their mission is "that for every dollar spent, we get a dollar's worth of supplies into needy people's hands." You can help by donating directly to the Wholesale Costco Warehouse in Houston, in the name of Rebel Waltz Relief Fund, 12405 N. Gessner Blvd, Houston, TX 77064 -- phone: (832) 912-2353.

I agree that's cool of him, not making it a big publicity stunt. Doing what he can and not wanting anything in return :cool:

Word man, now you said it all!! Those other guys (BJ and Bono broxes) help just to sell their image, and gain popularity... Dexter is the guy with the most awesome personality, he does it only for the cause of helping unfortunate people...

Anyway, this perfectly answers the thread in which someone was discussing if the band members were or weren't assholes.

I'm sorry, I didn't mean to say that Billie Joe and Bono broxes didn't do anything to help other people!! Of course they did, their charities were very important! What I mean is that they use that to gain popularity, Bono likes preserving his image and public appearances.

EDIT: Everytime Bono donates a dollar, the cameras have to be there, so that everyone in the world knows of it.

do we remember that thread that said the offspring were assholes? yeah, still think that? dexter is so nice....thats just so sweet. and it definitely wasn't a publicity stunt, or there would have been a feature story on him in you know, the news...like some of the other celebrities. way to go dexter!

Over the past few days I've been wondering if The Offspring would do anything to help. Now I know they did, and I'm happy to know they aren't self-centered jerks. :D :D :D :D

Hahaha, nice...nice. :)

Still, he wasn't on the frontlines doing his relief shindig, like Shaquille O'Neal. That guy is fucking class! You heard Shaq is going to quit basketball and become...get this, an undercover cop?!

That so made my day hearing that a couple of weeks ago. :D
