Actually, the title might be a bit misleading, I don’t think dubstep actually cures cancer but a member of our community who has been on modblog several times before, Cory Victorious, is using this popular musical genre as an outreach to help raise funds for cancer research.
Anytime a member of our little community goes out of their way to help society outside of our little community it reflects well upon all of us and gives our collective group some much needed positive publicity. So, take a moment to appreciate all of the hard work Cory’s put into this project and if it’s something your into, please contribute. If not, look at it as inspiration to come up with your own projects to help the world out a bit. Here’s the info on this group and what they do:
DubstepCuresCancer is a non-profit started by Cory Schneider and Matthew Quinones in South Florida. Based around the EDM genre ‘dubstep’, known for its hard hitting basslines and crazy wobbles. What started as a youtube channel to feature dubstep songs has now expanded to an inventory of glow in the dark silicone bracelets, T-shirts and girls boy shorts. Half of the profit will be donated to cancer research foundations (with the other half being re-invested in the company to expand inventory) The first of which is “The Breast Cancer Research Foundation”, chosen for its high percentage of direct funds to research. We have booked merchant booths at many local events and has applied to be vendors at events such as Electric Daisy Carnival and Starscape festival. Even for people who don’t know what dubstep is, it is a cause that touches all and is one of the first of its kind in EDM music. Check us out on our facebook (www.facebook.com/dubstepcurescancer) and big cartel site (only the t-shirt link is active at the moment). We hope to expand to a website with store features, and sections including interviews with dubstep dj’s who are involved in charities, pretty soon.
