Following the events in Las Vegas, Puerto Rico, Mexico, Texas, and unfortunately, so much more, it is easy to believe no hope is left. Throughout it all, music prevails. Here are a few music compilations that send all the proceeds to causes that help those affected directly.
This compilation features Lomelda, Adult Mom, Blanket and so much more. All money received for this comp will be donated to the Hurricane Maria Community Relief & Recovery Fund. The group had initially planned on sending the money to an environmental organization but the urgency following the destruction of Hurricane Maria changed their minds, "the people of puerto rico are suffering at the intersection of environmental catastrophe and colonial subjugation and your donation here will help provide them desperately needed material support."
The price may seem steep with the minimum contribution set at $30, but this compilation has 99 songs from artists like Mitski, Angel Olson, Jay Som, Waxahatchee, Bully, Briana Marela, and Julien Baker. Your money will go directly to "organizations working on the front lines of climate, women's rights, immigration and fairness." These organizations include All Above All, Revolutions Per Minute, Southerners on New Ground and much more. For more info, you can go to ourfirst100days.us
