Music for Life is an annual fundraiser organised by the VRT's youth radio channel Studio Brussel around Christmas. Studio Brussel presenters have themselves locked up in a house for almost a week in order to present a live radio programme 24/7 (in different shifts) and receive members of the public that are supporting the action and raising cash with their personal initiative.
This year, Music for Life has received a push in the back from a major international player, Muse. The British band will perform live on stage in the renowned AB concert hall. Anyone who would like to attend the concert, can send a text message to 4342 (1 euro per sms) whenever they hear Studio Brussels play a Muse song. If they send a text message, they have a chance to win tickets for the concert. Every single euro will go to the fundraiser campaign.
Since a couple of years, those taking part in Music for Life can choose the good cause themselves. Muse opted for Doctors Without Borders. The organisation has a lot of extra work nowadays, with the many refugees trying to reach Europe. They already had a busy time to battle the Ebola crisis earlier this year. The NGO said they were "thrilled" to hear that Muse is supporting them.
