Post Malone is asking you to help him donate $1 million. Fans can now text the 24-year-old musician and tell him where to send his charitable contribution.
“Not everyone has the ability to financially support causes that may be close to them or that have helped them in the past,” he said. “The fans are the absolute best and I want to give them the chance to give to charities that mean something to them.”
The decision to involve fans in his $1 million donation was spawned by the overwhelming show of support — and donations — during Post’s recent Nirvana livestream tribute. His contribution will support a variety of causes including COVID-19 frontline responders, disaster relief, education, homelessness, hunger, mental health, veterans, and more.
You can text Post Malone on his Community phone number (817-270-6440) and let him know where to send his donation.

Post Malone performed a Nirvana tribute concert with Travis Barker last week via his YouTube Livestream. The event raised funds for coronavirus relief efforts. And Posty used an old school trick to get fans engaged — sharing his phone number.
For the concert, Post went full grunge, performing Nirvana hits including “Come As You Are,” “Heart-Shaped Box,” and “About A Girl” on his guitar, with assistance from blink-182 drummer Travis Barker.
The concert was held in support of the United Nations Foundation’s COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund. Fans were able to make donations to the UN Foundation in real-time during the virtual event by using the “DONATE” button on the top right-hand side of the screen. Google.org had pledged to match all donations at a 2:1 rate, up to $5 million, with all proceeds going to the UN Foundation.
Post had been creating hype around the charitable performance in a genius way. Following a brief Instagram hiatus, the “Psycho” singer returned with a bathroom fit pic and the following message, “text me:) 817-270-6440.” As it turns out, fans could get more information on the live-stream and the relief fund by texting the number.
Post Malone initially came under fire back in March for going through with his sold-out arena show in Denver despite the pandemic. It seems now the rapper is making things right with this virtual concert dedicated to Coronavirus relief. You can watch the concert in full below.
