$1 to Haiti for every CD sold at CDBaby.com

Now is a really good time to buy some new music at CDBaby.com.

Starting on January 25th and continuing for 2 weeks, CD Baby will donate $1 toward Haitian earthquake relief for every CD and album download sold.

Here's some of my top picks on CDBaby right now, and a really awesome way to donate $10 to Haiti, and get some great music in the mix:

From CDBaby President Brian Felson:

The earthquake and its aftermath in Haiti have touched all of our lives. Many in the CD Baby family have already contributed as individuals, but we wanted to do more to help the victims of the horrible earthquake tragedy.

Starting on Monday, January 25th and continuing for two weeks, we will donate $1 of our cut from every CD sale through our website, and $1 from every download sale over $8.99 on our site, to the American Red Cross and to Mercy Corps, a Portland-based relief organization with a large presence in Haiti. With your help, we hope to raise tens of thousands of dollars.

I also urge you to make your own direct donation if you haven’t done so yet. Together, we can make a difference. Please click below to make your tax deductible donation right now.

On behalf of all CD Baby employees, I thank you for helping out during this time of great human tragedy in Haiti.

Sincerely,
Brian Felson
