After Haiti was hit with a 7.2 earthquake on August 14, it left over 2,000 people dead and 12,000 injured, along with serious structural damage to buildings across the country.
As Haiti works to recover, Future and his FreeWishes Foundation have decided to join the relief efforts by hosting a benefit concert where he, Lil Uzi Vert, and more will be performing to raise money and awareness for the natural disaster.
Future took to Instagram to announce the philanthropic event that will take place at the Oasis Wynwood in Miami, Florida on September 3.
“I would love for all my friends, family, music industry, fashion, and all other industries, and people as a whole to stand up for Haiti,” the post read. “I want to use my voice to do whatever I can to support Haiti during these tragic times and will be doing a benefit concert on September 3rd in Miami. Tap in to support. – Pluto.”
100% of the net proceeds from the live event will be given to Direct Relief, a global humanitarian aid organization.
“Direct Relief is deeply thankful to Future and FreeWishes for their incredible act of generosity to assist people in Haiti who face even more severe health risks from the recent earthquake because of the compounding effects of Covid and deep, chronic challenges,” said Direct Relief President and CEO, Thomas Tighe.
Included in the events description were also performances from “Lil Uzi & Friends,” implying that other big-named artists are likely to show up and support as well.
Doors for Future’s charity event at the Oasis Wynwood open at 7 p.m. and tickets are available here.
