Since the election result of November 8, a number of bands, artists, and record labels are donating proceeds from their sales to pro-women, pro-immigrant, pro-earth, or anti-bigotry charities. All of the people these causes raise money for expect to find the next four years difficult. They will all need help along the way. Of course you can donate directly —Jezebel— has a comprehensive list of charities, but here is a look at the artists who will donate money on your behalf as well as giving you new music to enjoy.

Top Shelf Records have made their back catalog pay what you want for the rest of 2016. All of their proceeds are being split between Planned Parenthood, NAACP, and The Trevor Project. Additionally, in 2017 they will start a new tiered label subscription service with each tier including a way to contribute to the three organizations.
DIY label Near Mint are splitting all sales until December 1 between the GSA Network, which funds middle school and high school clubs for members of the LGBTQ community, sexual violence charity RAINN, and the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe.
Charly Bliss have released “Turd” in aid of Planned Parenthood. The song was written by lead singer Eva Hendricks when she was catcalled on her way home from a guitar lesson.
Shigeto’s contemplative “What Are We Made Of?” samples a speech Detroit artist Tyree Guyton gave earlier this year in which he suggests "together we can change the world.” All money raised from the download will go to Planned Parenthood.
All the music on electronic artist Eprom’s Bandcamp is now pay what you want. All the proceeds until 2017 will go to Planned Parenthood.
Fat Wreck Chords
Finally, Fat Wreck Chords, who have released music from Against Me! and NOFX, have redesigned the shirt they first sold during George W. Bush's presidency using Donald Trump’s face. The charity shirt goes on sale on November 23 here.
