Published Dec 02, 2012Over the weekend, on December 1, many focused in on spreading awareness of HIV with World AIDS Day. One person who helped with that fight was Nü Sensae drummer Daniel Pitout, who launched a fundraising initiative called the AIDS Day Music Project.
The project sees Nü Sensae and their friends donating material to be entered into a raffle. The project runs all month (December is also AIDS Awareness Month), by which point the prizes will be awarded to those who entered.
The artists who donated to the cause are Grimes, Dum Dum Girls, Ron Reyes of Black Flag, King Tuff, Nü Sensae, White Lung, Pamela Love, Black Bananas, Shannon and the Clams, the Coathangers, Mac Demarco, Wax Idols and Burger Records.
The prizes include everything from signed LPs and t-shirts to other more personal items like a pack of Viceroys from DeMarco or an "intimate" personal gift from Dum Dum Girls. Check out all the prizes here.
Initial tickets for the raffle are $10, with each additional ticket available in $5 increments from there. All proceeds go to the Foundation for AIDS Research and the Vancouver AIDS Society.
