La Dispute Raises Donations to Benefit Michigan Writing Center

La DisputePost-hardcore outfit La Dispute, in conjunction with No Sleep Records, is encouraging listeners to raise donations for 826 Michigan, a Michigan-based non-profit writing and tutoring center, by purchasing from the band’s digital discography on Bandcamp.

La Dispute will donate the proceeds raised from all of today’s Bandcamp purchases to 826 Michigan. The band requires no minimum donation, and donations will be raised for twenty-four hours Christmas day.

Through the work of tutors and volunteers, 826 Michigan is an organization dedicated to developing students’ creative and expository writing skills.

The members of La Dispute write:

“This is a whatever-you-can-afford type of deal. Do your best to be generous, 826 Michigan is a fantastic organization and every extra bit goes a long way in helping expand programs and assist in need students, but don’t spend outside your means. And spread the word! We’re on the internet, folks, you have a Tumblr, a Twitter, and a Facebook–tell your internet friends. And tell your grandma too, if she’s coming over for dinner tomorrow. And tell her you love her.”
