Five Cents for Every No Trigger Album Sold

Posted by: Jason Tate (01/27/12)
Coffee and Cigarettes Clothing is promising to donate 5 cents to HRC for every copy of No Trigger's Tycoon sold in the first week. Check out a video explaining why, in the replies.

It's a good gesture, but i really don't think it will be a whole lot.

I understand how it can seem that way, but this is where power in numbers comes in. I'm trying to encourage more people to pick up the No Trigger album with the incentive of that purchase having some good consequences beyond someone getting a rad CD.

Let's say the album sells 3000 copies, which I think is a rather conservative estimation; that's 150 bucks. Drop in the bucket? Depends how you look at it, but without any drops the bucket would be empty. If every one of their facebook fans bought the CD, I'd be donating almost 300 bucks. That's cool.

And like I said in the video, I'm also inviting other companies and organizations to match my donation. This would certainly help. I wish I could donate fifty cents or a dollar for every copy sold, but I quite frankly don't have the means to do that. Some good is better than no good.

tl;dr It's important to avoid the mentality of things being too small to make a difference. And things add up.

And thanks for checking out the video. :)

Giving up a tiny amount of money to try to push more records is all I got from that, aha.

$150 for 3000 units is pretty small.

What are your best estimates for this?

It is a drop in the bucket compared to this in charity topical news:

Yeah, but it's within the first week. Do you feel that the first week sales will be in excess of 3,000 units? Either way, $5, $50, or $150 any amount to charity is cool and I agree with you on that.
