SWERLK Has Raised Over $35,000 For Contigo Fund!
MNDR, Scissor Sisters, and WonderSound are proud to announce that since it’s release in June 2017, SWERLK has raised over $35,000 for the Contigo Fund! Founded after Orlando’s Pulse Night Club tragedy in 2016, Contigo Fund contributes to organizations providing support for Latinx and LGBTQ communities affected by the tragedy. 100% of SWERLK streams, downloads, and licensing proceeds go to the Contigo fund as well as contributions made directly to Contigo from the SWERLK website.
Whether you heard it bangin’ on the dancefloor, in an Amazon Echo TV commercial, shopping at Old Navy, or streamed Martin Sharp’s remix on Spotify’s New Music Friday List, each listen and download has helped provide aid to this cause. We are honored and bestowed with tremendous privilege to be a part of this movement and keep the Pulse tragedy in the national dialogue.

Scissor Sisters and MNDR, along with the rest of the world, were deeply affected by the PULSE nightclub shooting in Orlando, FL.
It wasn’t just an attack on the LGBTQ community, but on one of its sacred spaces: the dance floor. On the one-year anniversary of the shooting, the two artists are teaming up not just to ensure violence against the gay community is still part of the national dialog, but to take back the dance floor.
SWERLK celebrates individuality, diversity, freedom, and fierceness. Scissor Sisters and MNDR are donating 100% of record sales and encouraging donations to the Contigo Fund, which emerged from the Pulse tragedy and offers financial support to organizations working to heal, educate and empower LGBTQ and Latinx individuals, immigrants and people of color, as well as those working to end all forms of bigotry in Central Florida.
