This week could be seen by some as a catastrophe. Everyone at The Alternative has been sleep deprived all week, trying to be as active in our communities as possible. Amidst the turmoil though, lies an undying flame; our community will never give up on those in need. For this week’s ICYMI, we’ve decided to list all of the organizations and artists donating profits they make to great causes, such as Planned Parenthood, The National Immigration Law Center, and more.
