Music service with a cause

Digital music store / streaming service / discovery platform Bandcamp made waves back in February by donating all of their proceeds for a day to the ACLU in protest of the Trump administration's discriminatory travel ban, which hundreds of labels and artists enthusiastically matched (previously). They ended up raising quite a bit in one day. Now, they've set their sights on the administration's declared ban on transgender people serving in the military. Tomorrow they'll be giving their share of sales to the Transgender Law Center. Over 200 labels and artists have pledged to contribute as well. Obviously, not everyone is thrilled; Breitbart calls it virtue signaling, though technically speaking it's more virtue action than virtue signal.
