Music For Nature: Listen to good music and save the environment! - Feb 17, 2021
Music2Deal would like to introduce you to a new partner: Music-for-Nature.
The Music-for-Nature vision: 500 million people listen to a song by music-for-nature.net artists every day, helping to generate over € 100million a year for environmental projects. Be there and help make this vision come true. The basic idea of Music-For-Nature (www.music-for-nature.net/en-gb) is very simple. Musicians or bands donate the proceeds from digital sales (streaming and download sales) of one or more of their songs for environmental projects for a defined period of time. The "donated" songs are compiled in playlists on all major streaming services and promoted by environmental organizations and Music-For-Nature. This creates a win-win-win situation: - The user can support environmental projects by listening to music. So he can do something good without having to make a real donation. - Musicians and bands get a broad public through the marketing activities of the environmental organizations and Music-For-Nature, which has correspondingly positive effects on the other songs and albums. Awareness and fan base are growing internationally. - Last but not least, the environment benefits. The proceeds can be used to finance projects for climate protection, against species extinction and for the preservation of ecosystems. By the way, Music-for-Nature was able to win the first top act as a supporter just two weeks ago. Culcha Candela donates all proceeds of the new Hamma! Remixes for the Music-for-Nature projects. There is really no need to wait. Start now and support the project with song donations. Just get in touch at email@example.com and you will get all the information you need.
