Beatport Donating Tuesday’s Net Proceeds To Charity
Beatport is making purchasing music beneficial to more than just the artists and record labels behind our favorite tunes, they are donating all proceeds made for the entire day of December 20th, to the Keep A Child Alive non-profit organization. That sure does add an extra incentive to go digging through their digital crates of electronic music goodies! Get to it.
Here’s their own statement:
During this season of giving, it’s important to remember those who are most in need. That’s why, on December 20th, we ask you to join us in the effort to support children and families affected by HIV/AIDS. Beatport will donate 100% of our net proceeds to Keep A Child Alive.
Keep A Child Alive is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing life-saving treatment, orphan care, nutrition, and support services to children and families affected by HIV/AIDS in Africa and India. There are 15 million children orphaned in sub-saharan Africa alone, please join us in supporting their efforts to care and provide support for children and families affected by AIDS.
Beatport Gives Back is a new quarterly program. Keep A Child Alive was selected as our first charity organization because the welfare of children around the globe is very important to us. For our next Beatport Gives Back event, we are accepting nominations from our community. Nominate an organization before December 31st, 2011 for consideration.
Proceeds will be calculated based on sales from 12:00:00 AM MT to 11:59:59 PM MT on December 20th, less royalties paid to labels and artists. Donations will be sent to the Keep A Child Alive foundation, to support AIDS treatment, orphan care, nutrition and support services to children and families affected by HIV/AIDS in Africa and India.
