    While ransacking my mom's house, I found a (very) few copies of some super rare CD's (and tapes), many of which I know are fodder for Discogs gougers and music-abuse opportunists.

    So what I'm doing is this...

    The couple/few copies I have of each, I am selling for what is pretty much more or less what they are topping out at on Discogs. Am I also trying to gouge? No. I am just trying to ensure they don't just get bought by yet another opportunist, and instead go to the right home. By selling for around the same price, I can be sure they will not go to yet another abuser.
    Each release will be $74. Yes, that is not cheap. But it's pretty much about (and in some cases less than) what each of them are going for.

    The difference? I will donate $24 of each sale to one of four charities of your choice:

    1. Paws & Stripes (
    2. Blind Cat Rescue ( (super "me" charity haha)
    3. American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (
    4. Dave Thomas Adoption Foundation (


    If you pay over the $74 by any amount, I will donate the $24, + 50% of the extra to any charity you choose, if you don't like helping veterans, blind cats, at-risk people, or kids who need adopting ;) you tell me. Or you can choose one of the original four. As long as it goes to somewhere, something, or someone in need, I'm happy.

    *P.S. No matter what, I will be donating $200 to the Blind Cat Rescue from my own pocket. I know, huge surprise, right? haha... to slightly counter my predictability, I will also be donating $100 to Paws & Stripes, again, regardless of sales. I already give every year to the AFSP and Dave Thomas Foundation (I know suicide problems all too well, and the Dave Thomas Foundation was integral in helping me myself be adopted, for which I will always be grateful) - so no, I'm not only a cat nut ;)

    Yes it's all a bit complicated and maybe a bit weird, but we can battle the opportunist pillagers, much more importantly help those in need, and have CD's in the right people's hands, all in one fell swoop :)

    This is what was unearthed (or what's left):
    White Clouds Drift On and On (1 copy)
    The Art of Dying Alone (2 copies)
    To Live (3 copies)
    The First Day (3 copies)
    One Last Look at the Sea (cassette, 1 copy)

    Shipping price not included. I will try to calculate the shipping price as close as possible, and send accordingly. I'm not trying to make anything off shipping.

    Also, I am happy to sign or personalize any CD in any way you like - but please keep in mind that will require unwrapping some of them that originally come wrapped.
