Charities can now generate income by making the most of music downloads with new site Fairsharemusic.com. For every track downloaded it will donate half the profit to the purchaser’s chosen charity.
The site features over 8.5 million tracks and prices start at 79p per track. Its founders hope that the site’s ‘feelgood factor’ will help it compete with other existing music download sites such as iTunes.
Charities that are already signed up to benefit from Fairsharemusic.com include Amnesty International, British Heart Foundation, British Red Cross, Centrepoint, Friends of the Earth, Great Ormond Street Hospital, NSPCC, Oxfam, Sue Ryder Care, Teenage Cancer Trust and WWF.
