DonorJams — listen to rap while supporting charities!

Recently a newsletter reader, Kevin, told me all about his new site DonorJams. It’s a platform to promote the “donation” of music to a cause, and here’s how it works:

Artists can upload songs/albums to all the major streaming stores, and funds earned from those streams will be sent to charitable causes that the artists/bands choose. The more times a song is streamed or purchased, the more funds are raised for that charitable cause!

For example: when you stream Kev’s new album “Water Sports”, all the funds earned will go to 540WMain, which is an online hub for antiracist education and events.

Check out the site here, or read the press release below if you’re an artist and want to get involved!
