Starting today, a rare compilation will be unveiled by top musicians who are joining their creative forces in support of Japan. The 100-song album features artists such as Tori Amos, Ani DiFranco, Wolf Parade and more. SOLFJ is a three-day, 72-hour sale of great music for a great cause. The cornerstone of the sale is a $100 compilation of 100 rare and unique songs donated from 100 leading artists. There are also changes to win gift concert tickets, signed CDs and other one-of-a-kind items to purchasers of the 100 song compilation throughout the three-day sale. For those that still want to help Japan but lack $100, there will also be a sampling of 20 great songs for $20
100% of SOLFJ‘s net proceeds will be donated to ShelterBox, a charity committed to helping the survivors of the catastrophe. Every $1,000 raised will allow ShelterBox to deliver emergency shelter and life-saving equipment to an afflicted family. A ShelterBox typically includes a tent, blankets, water storage and purification equipment, cooking utensils, a stove, a basic tool kit, a children’s activity pack and other essential items. We chose ShelterBox because we think it is one of the most effective and efficient charities working in Japan today.
