The Inspiring Reason Moby is Selling All of His Records to Fans

Moby, an American musician, photographer, and longtime advocate of animal welfare, is selling his entire personal collection of records. The reason why? To raise money which he will later donate to an animal rights health group.

The Official Moby Reverb I.P Shop went live last week on the Reverb website. The store featured over 1,000 records from the artist’s collection. According to GoodNewsNetwork, many of the records were part of the “building blocks” that made up Moby’s earlier career. Autographed and special edition albums by Moby are also part of the collection.

“These are all the records that I bought and loved and played and carried all around the world,” said Moby. “I would rather you have them than me, because if you have them, you’ll play them, you’ll love them, and the money will go to the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine. So everybody wins. Well, except me, because now I don’t have any records.”
All of the profits from the auction will be donated to the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM). The nonprofit health group promotes vegan diets (free of animal products) to remedy various ailments in a holistic manner. This isn’t the first time Moby has raised money for the organization. In April, the DJ sold over 100 pieces of musical gear, synths, and equipment to benefit PCRM.

Recently, Moby was featured in a TED Talk, where he discusses why he is vegan. The presentation is non-judgmental and eye-opening. Learn from him below:
