With sites like Kickstarter, Indiegogo and Sellaband, musicians have infinite ways of raising money for their projects, tours and any other creative products that they can think of. All these sites tap into the need of most artists: money.
Online startup Bubuti is trying to take this model and instead of pushing money into the artists pocket, they want to push it to the artists favorite charity.
While this model will not work for the new bands and artists that are struggling to make a living from their music, there is no reason as to why this model shouldn’t be echoed to artists such as Lady Gaga, U2 and Justin Bieber.
According to the Bubuti site they say that ” Our site gives charities the opportunity to combine with music artists to quickly and easily build collaborative campaigns, where songs are sold to benefit a charitable cause. By taking the concept of the benefit concert to the web, our value is that of a powerful, innovative, 24/7 fundraising machine for any charity.”
It’s a very simple idea which can have a profound impact if the right artists team with the site.
