    At a recent concert in Tacoma, Washington on February 13th, Mike Shinoda announced before Linkin Park's encore that the band would be donating a portion of the proceeds taken in during that nights show to the local Pacific Northwest Research Institute. The PNRI, founded in the mid-nineteen fifties, researches for finding cures for diseases such as cancer and diabetes. The donation was supposedly in memory of a friend of drummer Rob Bourdon who passed away due to cancer.

    They said "a portion", so I don't know if that's 1%, 99%, or anything in between.
