deadmau5 has certainly alienated some of his peers, and many fans, with his online grumpiness and overall salty demeanor. But if anyone doubts that he's got a good heart, this should put those doubts to rest.

Joel has teamed up with Urban Fitness 911, CrowdRise, and Firefly Music Festival to give fans a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and raise some money for a great cause in the process. Urban Fitness 911 is a non-profit based out of Los Angeles, that takes on the disadvantages that kids from low-income families have in areas of education and health.

Urban Fitness 911 is a total wellness program that emphasizes lifelong exercise, healthy cooking and nutrition, academic tutoring, and inspirational experiences with amazing people to teenagers in low income communities. We have already seen how this comprehensive model can work. By giving these students respect, focused attention, and new experiences, they start to see who they can be. Please join us in changing lives one at a time.

Fans can either donate themselves, or fundraise through CrowdRise, and for every $10, they get an entry into the contest. The winner will receive:

A pair of VIP passes to see deadmau5 at Firefly Music Festival 2016

- Watching deadmau5 perform from side stage

- Camping for two at the festival

- Airfare for 2 to Dover, Delaware

And the first 5 people to donate or fundraise $1,000 will be entered to win a mau5 head helmet!
