Arnel Pineda and the rest of the band announced the donation on Friday. It will go to the United Nations World Food Programme, which is providing Filipinos with food assistance. The donation should provide 1.4 million meals.

In a statement, Pineda referenced the group's famous "Believin'" song and said "help is on the way."

Journey made the donation along with Live Nation Entertainment, Creative Artists Agency and their manager, John Baruck.

The Philippines were devastated by Typhoon Haiyan, which has left more than 3,600 dead and displaced 600,000, according to authorities. Journey is also calling on fans to donate to the cause.

amazing that even when someone does something WONDERFUL for someone in need, there is always those others that just HAVE to a negative comment.  have YOU helped anyone in need lately or are you just so caught up in your own miserable life that you just can't bring yourself to care about anyone else???

Thanks for all the people who took the opportunity to basically sidestep the story so that they may get their very old & tired quips in about Perry.

 

He's not coming back, and Journey still puts on great shows...Your loss...

It was nice of these guys to donate but there will never be the real Journey again without Steve Perry!! I wouldn't pay 5.00 to see them without him..
