I ran across this website and thought it was a really cool way to get involved and do something about making trade fair.

“The Cake Sale are a band featuring a loose and expansive collective of musicians and writers who have combined to create a nine-song CD of the same name on Oxfam Records. All profits will go to support Oxfam Ireland’s Make Trade Fair campaign and their overseas programme work.

Songs on the album have been written by Dave Geraghty, Emm Gryner, Paul Noonan, Glen Hansard, Ollie Cole, Damien Rice, Conor Deasy and Matt Lunson.

Lead vocalists for the project include Lisa Hannigan, Nina Persson, Gary Lightbody, Gemma Hayes, Glen Hansard, Josh Ritter, Conor Deasy and Neil Hannon.

A host of other luminaries fill the roles of musicians.”
