Phoenix, Ariz. (PRWEB) December 05, 2011
Cause.fm, LLC (http://cause.fm) today announced the launch of its new socially-minded digital music distribution platform, Cause.fm. Cause.fm gives independent artists the ability to make an impact on their communities and the world by raising money and awareness for nonprofits and causes they believe in simply by selling music downloads. A portion of every sale made through the Cause.fm platform is donated to the charity of the artist’s choice.
“The power of music can be leveraged as a vehicle for social change,” says Cause.fm founder David Negron. “The Cause.fm platform promotes awareness of social causes and nonprofit field work, while simultaneously supporting independent artists and the music they create.”
Cause.fm serves as a social network for artists, fans, and non-profits, fostering communication and interaction between users, providing a means for effective fundraising and collaboration while encouraging activism and volunteerism at the individual and local level. Through the Cause.fm platform, artists can team up with their fans to support any cause, while non-profits can leverage the power of social media and grassroots digital music to raise funds and awareness. Musicians can upload their music for sale directly on the Cause.fm website, and fans can download their purchases to any device. Artists choose the amount that gets donated per purchase, as well as the benefiting charity. Any non-profit can create a profile for their organization on Cause.fm to benefit from the platform for free.
“Fewer resources are available to non-profits than ever before. Government funding has been drastically cut, foundations have redirected funds, and the breadth of individual giving has narrowed,” says Negron. “Meanwhile, the need for direct services has risen, leaving non-profits unable to keep up with the need. Therefore, finding creative ways to fundraise is imperative.”
Cause.fm, LLC is a subsidiary of One Light Music Productions, Inc., a US-based music and media company dedicated to increasing accessibility to all forms of art. One Light Music’s key mission is to erase boundaries by connecting people through music and the visual arts while empowering creative freedom.
