Score Cool Shit from Your Favorite Artists While Helping the AIDS Day Music Project
We know that, for most of you, the big event on the first of any month is trying to pay your rent on time, but in December, the first also marks World AIDS Day. All this month, the newly minted AIDS Day Music Project will be raising money to benefit HIV/AIDS organizations by raffling off limited edition records, signed items, shirts, and personal trinkets from artists like Grimes, Dum Dum Girls, Mac DeMarco, King Tuff, White Lung, Black Bananas, Ron Reyes (formerly of Black Flag), Nü Sensae, Shannon and the Clams, the Coathangers, and Wax Idols, as well as items from Burger Records and New York jewelry designer Pamela Love.
Here is the scoop: the first raffle ticket costs $10 and every ticket after that is $5. The money raised will go to the Foundation for AIDS Research. And since the project was masterminded by Daniel Pitout of Vancouver band Nü Sensae, a portion of the proceeds will go to AIDS Vancouver in order to support their grocery program and resource center for people living with HIV.
“I grew up in South Africa where HIV is a huge part of everybody’s daily life. I have also lost family and friends to AIDS and have several friends living with HIV. I have always been a huge advocate for HIV awareness and decided I wanted to get some of my friends who play in amazing bands and make amazing art to get involved.”
