Beyond the fact that electronic dance music as we know it wouldn’t exist without Japan’s contributions over the years—just consider the numbers 303, 808, and 909—the ongoing crisis in Japan affects us all, on a purely human scale. For that reason, on Monday, March 21st, Beatport will donate 100% of our day’s net proceeds to Japanese relief efforts. Join us by shopping on Beatport.com on March 21st.
Terms and Conditions as posted on Beatport:
“Join Beatport as we donate 100% of our net revenue on March 21st to Japanese relief.
Revenue will be calculated based on sales from 12:00:00 AM MT to 11:59:59 PM MT on March 21st, less royalties paid to labels and artists. Donations will be sent to the American Red Cross, Mile High Chapter, to be directed to the Japanese Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami Relief.
You can help the victims of the recent Japanese earthquake and tsunami by making a financial gift to the American Red Cross’ Japanese Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami Relief fund, which will provide immediate relief and long-term support through supplies, technical assistance and other support to help those in need.
