PORTLAND, Ore. - September 1 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Musicians, bands, and independent record labels joined with CD Baby (www.cdbaby.com) today in "banding together" to donate their entire wholesale price on music sales to the American Red Cross disaster relief fund.
The special website, set-up by CD Baby at www.CDbaby.com/redcross/ showcases hundreds of independent musicians who will be helping with the hurricane relief effort by donating their profits to the Red Cross.
"You may think that a few sales won't help, but with thousands of musicians banded together to do this, I think it will help a LOT of people get their lives back together after this disaster," said CD Baby's founder Derek Sivers.
CD Baby sent a personal email message to over 1 million CD Baby customers, telling them about this special promotion, encouraging them to buy some CDs from this special section.
