Ritter came up with the idea while watching footage of the earthquake on CNN, when he penned the words "don't hate on Haiti" on a Post-it note.
"I felt like if you forget about the disaster in Haiti, it's like hatred. It's like ignorance. It's like turning a blind eye to a car wreck and you're the only one there to...help," says Ritter.
To aid in the relief efforts, Don't Hate on Haiti has partnered with international nonprofit charity:water to help bring clean drinking water to people in Haiti.
According to Ritter, the Don't Hate on Haiti campaign has already raised approximately $15,000 for earthquake relief during this summer's Warped Tour.
