Gothamist is happy to see that organizations like IndieMusicForLife.org are out there bringing together independent singer-songwriters to help in the common cause of finding a cure for cancer. The money is raised through donations, live shows and from artists donating songs for compilation CD’s which are sold. Many have joined forces with this organization to help set up and perform at fund raising events all over the country, helping to raise awareness and money for various cancer research centers.
