Here is the final update on this situation (in the words of Derek Sivers from CD Baby).
The Red Cross charity promotion we did after Hurricane Katrina finished today, raising a total of $165,060 paid directly to the Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund through our local Portland Oregon branch. (You should have seen their faces when we brought in that very first check, in person, for $113,000!)
We donated $40,000 of our own CD Baby money too, in case you were wondering. So – altogether, that’s $165,060 from the artists, $40,000 from CD Baby = $205,060 donated. I hope it helps!
