Josh Homme of Eagles of Death Metal — the band playing at Le Bataclan in Paris when Nov. 13’s terrorist attacks occurred — is seeking donations through his Sweet Stuff Foundation to benefit victims. While Homme was not performing with the band at the time of the attacks, his charity will give all donations made through the end of the year to families of survivors.

“Thank you for a moment to pause. Now time to help,” the organization wrote on Twitter Tuesday.

While the band remained safe, their merch manager Nick Alexander was one of 89 people killed at Le Bataclan last week.

Following the attacks, the California rockers, issued a statement sharing their horror at the event and thanking the forces who assisted in recovery. “Although bonded in grief with the victims, the fans, the families, the citizens of Paris, and all those affected by terrorism, we are proud to stand together, with our new family, now united by a common goal of love and compassion,” the group said.

The statement also announced that all Eagles of Death Metal shows would be on hold until further notice. In speaking with Billboard, Le Bataclan manager Dominique Revert confirmed the venue will open again.
