TL;DR – If you buy Arlene’s song on Friday, Feb. 3 2017, all of your money will be donated to the ACLU.
In light of recent events, Bandcamp has pledged to donate the entirety of their share of sales on Friday, Feb. 3 2017 (starting 12pm Pacific) to the ACLU. You can read Bandcamp’s press release here. Several members of our team already contribute privately to the ACLU, but we thought this would be a good opportunity for any of our fans looking to do the same.
As you may know, we currently sell “The Singing Sister” through Bandcamp (link at the top). If you buy the song this Friday, we will also donate the entirety of our share of sales to the ACLU.
For those of you keeping score at home, that means Bandcamp’s whole share and our whole share will be donated – which leaves only a cent or two on the dollar going to PayPal. If you’ve done your homework, you may have some misgivings about one of the founders of PayPal. So, to offset that concern, we will also match and double the PayPal fees in our donation.
Thanks everyone. Stories matter, and we’ll keep doing what we can to ensure that endangered stories get heard. We hope you’ll join us in the effort.
