As the world prepares to mark the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, the Robin Hood Foundation, the largest poverty fighting organization in New York City, has chosen SoundCloud to power the audio portion of their website commemorating the 9/11 tragedy.
Thirty-six hours after the attacks, Robin Hood established the 9/11 Relief Fund, and provided each victim’s family with a no-strings, no-application gift of $5,000 before the holidays. Following the check distribution, Robin Hood received hundreds of moving thank you notes. Celebrities including Mary-Louise Parker, Tom Welling, Arianna Huffington, and current and former Robin Hood board members including Harvey Weinstein, can be heard on the Robin Hood site reading from these incredibly touching letters. The Robin Hood 9/11 Relief Fund would go on to distribute more than $65 million dedicated to helping victims of the September 11 attacks.
You can listen to the readings of these letters on the Robin Hood, 9/11 relief website as well as their SoundCloud page.
Thanks to the amazing team at SoundCloud for all their support on this project.
