The article doesn't explain shit, but basically what the charity does is approach artists and ask for permission to remix their songs with musicians from a certain part of the world playing on the song, and then sell the CDs and donate the profits to combat climate change and revive areas damaged by natural disasters, and just generally help the environment.
