It’s impossible for us to ignore the world we live in today and things that are happening. Many many bands and small labels are joining together today to donate 100% of proceeds they generate from music sales today on Bandcamp to go towards organizations of their choice including Black Lives Matter, NAACP, and local and national bailout funds, and more.

Bandcamp has a page with a long list of bands and labels that you can check out on their site right here. There is also a long google doc of different bands donating their proceeds that you can check out online right here.
