Amoeba will again donate a portion of the day's proceeds to two charities working to preserve the musical and cultural heritage of New Orleans:
Tipitina’s Foundation - is a organization that grew out of the New Orleans music venue, Tipitina's. Based in New Orleans, Louisiana, the foundation's mission is to protect and preserve the musical culture of New Orleans and Louisiana. Part of the foundation's stated purpose is to empower the youth of the city to learn music. In order to encourage this, the foundation donates quality instruments to schools in the city and surrounding areas, runs workshops and after school programs teaching music performance at the club of the same name, Tipitina's, and operates a statewide network of technology access centers ("Tipitina's Music Office Co-Ops") to assist Louisiana's adult musicians and digital media professionals.
New Orleans Musicians’ Clinic - Since 1998, the New Orleans Musicians' Clinic (NOMC) has been dedicated to keeping New Orleans' performers alive in body, mind, and spirit by providing comprehensive health care and mental health/social services.
