    Default For Japan

    If i reach 500 plays this week by this time next Sunday, i will donate 20 to Japan. And will continue to do so right up until my final school exams in june.
    An extra 10 for every 100 comments.


    So spread the word & Get listening for Japan !

    I have to say I don't really like this. It's turning a huge natural disaster into a marketing opportunity.

    Just donate because it's a good idea, not to promote your work.

    I'm sure it's not meant to be cynical, but it seems a little insensitive.

    I have already thought of this, And my family have already donated a sum of money. And there are things happening in the community to support the help.

    So i'm just trying to help.

    Being a japan resident I don't find anything insensitive about this.
    Since Dan here is no Elton John and surely have no way of selling records to raise funds to donate I think he is doing the best he can to both donate and promote his music.

    Artists do concerts for a cause, albums for a cause. It's no different only that they have an audience to sell to and our co member here doesnt have any (yet)

    I'm going to have to agree with fullenglishpint on this one man.
    You're not generating revenue through your SoundCloud. And you're not creating awareness. If you were donating money through sales that would be different. SoundCloud plays and comments have absolutely no effect on the 20 euro coming out of your pocket...
    I'm happy to hear you've already donated, but in this case, just donate the 20 anyways.
