Q & A
SOME QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS ABOUT www.hurricanehealing.us AND OUR DISTRIBUTION PARTNER www.bluepie.com.au
|Q: WHERE DOES MY MONEY GO
A: 50 cents in every dollar spent on music downloaded from this website goes directly to the National Headquarters of the Salvation Army in the U.S. .20c of every dollar goes to the rights holder of the songs that we have listed on the albums. This is paid to either the artists or the labels that hold the rights. .30c of every dollar goes to Hurricane Healing to manage the overheads of Hurricane Healing.
In some cases the artists and the labels are are donating the proceeds they’d normally receive from sales to this relief effort. This is the .20c of every dollar that they get paid as their artist or label royalty. The option is up to the artist or the label. Where artists own the relevant rights and can donate the funds they receive, approximately 20 cents of every dollar will go to the National Head-quarters of the Salvation Army in the U.S.
|Q. HOW MANY RETAILERS WILL THE HURRICANE HEALING ALBUM BE LISTED WITH?
A. We expect to have each volume of the Hurricane Healing digital albums with up to 90% of our retailers that Blue Pie actively distributes to. They have a network of over 140 retailers. It will take up to 90 days for each volume to be coded and loaded to the retailers.
We will have close to 100% of all our digital partners selling the album in 120 days. This relief effort will be on going for many years. We expect the albums to continue to sell for a very long time and with your support we will be able to renew the content periodically. This is a long-term project for all the people involved.
|Q: HOW ELSE CAN I HELP?
A: You can do many things to help those affected by natural disasters.
