HAITI 2010 by Monome Community

Einpuls, a member of the Monome online community, sent me an email telling me that the Monome community have made an digital download album in order to generate donations for aid relief in Haiti. If you haven't already donated (or even if you have) you can download the 27 tracks in MP3 320 or FLAC for as little as a $1 donation. 100% of the sale proceeds will be donated to Médecins Sans Frontières (msf.org). You can listen to the album and donwload it HERE. With 2 hospitals destroyed and 54 NGO workers missing they could do with the the help.

"When the community came up with the idea of a compilation album to generate charity donations in light of the terrible disaster in Haiti, einpuls started gathering tracks for the album and the monome community answered swiftly with more than 25 tracks being submitted in just a couple of days.

The community teamed up with Summer Rain Recordings (summerrainrecordings.net) to compile the compilation, with the end result being a 27 track album, each track contributed for free. The minimum price for the compilation has been set to $1 with no upper limit. Every penny helps, so please donate what you can." - Press Release
