Online music service Bandcamp is celebrating Juneteenth and honoring the Black Lives Matter movement by donating 100 percent of its music sale profits to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund.

According to NPR, Bandcamp usually collects 15 percent of digital music sales and 10 percent of the sales from physical products. “We stand with those rightfully demanding justice, equality, and change, and people of color everywhere who live with racism every single day, including many of our fellow employees and artists and fans in the Bandcamp community,” the company wrote in a statement announcing the donation on its website.

Bandcamp also will be “allocating an additional $30,000 per year to partner with organizations that fight for racial justice and create opportunities for people of color.”

“We encourage everyone in the Bandcamp community to look for ways to support racial equality in your own local community, and as a company we’ll continue to look for more opportunities to support racial justice, equality and change,” the statement concludes.
