"Starting on Monday, January 25th and continuing for two weeks CD Baby will donate $1 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 think this is CD Baby jumping on the back of a disaster to bump up their sales.

What do you think?

Chaz

Ooooh, there's cynical.
If a few more people "jumped on the back" then a whole lot more could be raised.
Surely not many people are going to buy a cd they didn't want because of this donation,so it probably is "good" money".

But don't you think that they will be making more money than they will be donating?

chaz yes but they are donating a good thing. all corps donate for reasons other than pure giving. mostly for the publicity they get. they give a million - get ten million in free ads. but at least some good comes out of it

Disclaimer: I am a CD Baby artist. I think it's a great thing. The money the CDB is donating is coming out of their pocket and not ours.

It's a win-win all way 'round.

Yesterday, I found out that my friend Eric Apoe had received confirmation that the folks at Egan's Ballard Jam House 1707 Northwest Market Street Seattle, WA 98107 have graciously offered to host a benefit event. I contacted Eric about working together on the event. He's organized some very successful benefit events in the past. All funds will go to Food For The Poor . The date is set for February 25th. The event will feature about 20 players. Many have already volunteered their efforts.

Oops! That last post of mine was supposed to go in another thread! Sorry 'bout that!

I have 5 recordings available at CD Baby. I think that if they're willing to give up what amounts to 25% of their profit ($1 out of every $4) from the sale of one of my CDs, I'm not opposed to that.

DOH! I'm making more money than I donated or will be donating.
