UNICEF says no to Behemoth

2023-08-04 by Fernando Alves STAFF | 42 Comments
Polish blackened metallers Behemoth have been selling black teddy bears on their online store with the intent of donating the proceeds to UNICEF Poland, but to their surprise, the donation was rejected due to "the nature of the messages accompanying the products you sell."

The band posted the following on their social media:

"Sooo about our charity action and giving the income form the teddies to [UNICEF Poland] … I wanted to do so and participate in their 'company with a heart' action. Attached is the answer which I just got. Translated: 'Thank you very much for your interest in our organization and your willingness to join the 'Company with Heart' program.

"According to its regulations, each entity applying for participation in the program is subject to verification in terms of potential risks related to establishing cooperation. Unfortunately, we would like to inform you that due to the nature of the messages accompanying the products you sell, we cannot qualify you for participation in this particular Program.'

"Shame on you, [UNICEF Poland]. I am totally speechless. Do you REALLY want to help the kids out there? Thankfully, there are some other foundations which will accept the money for children. Legions, can you suggest any?"

Wow, how pathetic.
Basically: "We'd rather let children starve than take money from a project that doesn't align with our religious values."

Unicef actually wanted a more obscure dm band stating "behemoth only has one album rated over a 3.6 on RYM, needless to say Starvin Marvin et al would find taking donations from a band with such a mid discog beneath them".

TBF it's UNICEF Poland, not the entire organization. Probably run by the same orthodox religious nuts that run the government in Poland.

This, and Poles are catholic not orthodox *nitpicking*

The Greek branch was run by the local elites, but it was shut down by UNICEF central for some time, due to corruption and fund misappropriation issues.

Behemoth's best bet is to set up a mechanism of their own or direct that capital to charity outside of Poland.

A bird once told me that only 45% of the money donated to these organizations reaches those in need. It was a cockatiel called Ford. RIP

Ideal outfits to donate to would be religion-free ones, like Médecins sans Frontières which take care of everyone in need, including children.

I've never donated money, only food to an association/charity I worked for. If you don't know anyone on the board, give your money/food directly to those in need.

I mean the man for sure is a massive edgelord but regardless they are turning down a noble act because of that sheer reason. IMO Behemoth is exactly the kind of band that highlights how deep the religious issues run in Poland's politics because their edgy pedantics would hold almost no effect in most developed countries.

Religion and politics should never intermingle.

yeah but this guy has somehow managed to be more annoying than the Catholic Church which is a monumental feat, so he deserves all the hate he gets.
