An indie label out of Brooklyn, New York, is trading music for name-your-price philanthropy.
Through Dec. 4, all of the proceeds from the label's digital collection of music will go to help the Standing Rock water protectors in North Dakota.
All you have to do is pick a song or album you want to download, and pay whatever you want – there's no minimum for an album download, and it's a $1 minimum for a single song. You can browse through the music on Bandcamp, here. Some of the artists include: Cult Of Youth, Zola Jesus, David Lynch, John Carpenter, and a ton more.
The deal's only been on for a little over a day and the group has already raised $5,000.
The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, along with other tribes and activists, have been protesting the construction of a $3.8 billion pipeline for months. They say it could negatively affect drinking water and cultural sites. However, Energy Transfer Partners – which is developing the four-state, 1,200-mile pipeline – says it’ll be safe.
