No Pants Record Store Shopping Juneteenth Edition
Bandcamp is donating their portion of the sales to the NAACP an important grassroots organization that supports the advancement of rights of people of colour. Here are the tweets put out by music fans in support of the NoPantsRecordStoreShopping Marathon this week.Two twitter accounts received one of two $30 Bandcamp Gift Cards for tweeting out duing the Marathon! AND on top of that will all the twitter accounts that retweeted the hashtag or took part in the hashtag I was able to add $15 to my donation to Toronto Black Lives Matter for a total of $75. I know that in these times maybe you don’t have the money to donate, but you can also donate your space on social media platforms by promoting music, art, businesses that are from and by blacks and POCS. That takes no money, just your time. And right now, we all have a little more time ;)
