Discs For Dogs

Only 2 of the same CD Accepted! No matter what’s on the disc, it’s sold for a dollar or less from a “Used and Abused” bin in a western New York CD store. The pet-friendly philanthropists will reimburse donors for shipping costs for all CD contributions, then pass all proceeds on to the local chapter of the ASPCA.  

Phone: 716-447-9786



Housing Works 

If you’ve already burned your entire music collection onto an MP3 player the size of a thumbtack, clear your shelves by handing off the used CDs (but no cassettes, ’80s children) to one of NYC's prominent charity stores. It funds HIV/AIDS assistance programs with the proceeds from its 50 boutiques and program spots throughout the five boroughs.

126 Crosby St between E Houston and Prince Sts

Phone: 212-334-3324

IMPORTANT TO NOTE  Gifting mp3 downloads to Charities is not an option. Hard copies of Adam's CDs can be donated to charities from Amazon or Adam Official.


  • Open an iTunes Account - You may have more than one iTunes account per computer. Each account needs a different email address. You may use the same credit card.

  • Definition of Sale? Sale = Any Download That Is Charged To Your Credit Card or Pay Pal.

  • In the USA, to count as a sale, you can only download a single once per iTunes account. If you try to download again, you will receive a message that you have already downloaded that song. They are happy to download that song for you again for Free, but guess what? Free does not = sale!!! So, what to do? You want to download songs and iTunes won't let you! Dang!

  • Gifting! Yes, now you start Gifting to folks who....

           * Have an iTunes account in the same country you live in.
           * Are aware that they are receiving a download from you, and will
              download the Gift within a day or two.

  • How many times can you Gift? As many times as possible, to as many people as possible....Consult your bank account and budget!

  • To Gift, go to iTunes and find Adam's singles. Right next to "Buy" is a downward arrow. This is a drop-down menu. Pull the menu down and click on Gift. Follow iTunes directions from there.

  • If you can't afford to purchase a download, there are many who are more than happy to Gift you a copy. You will need to have an email address and an iTunes account.

  • You may want to have Gifting partners from friends in the real world or from Twitter. Gifting Buddies!

The above information applies to the USA. Each country has it's own rules! Some countries may still allow you to download endlessly from your own computer. Experiment!

You can also leave questions and comments at the Bottom of this page.


Happy Buying, Gifting, and Receiving!



                                GIFTING MP3's FROM AO

There is a way to gift music from AO. This works better and it is easier than iTunes because you can donate to anyone around the world whereas with iTunes you can only gift within your own country.

Purchase the song/CD as normal. Stop when you get to the point where there is a gray button that says download. Look up to the address in your browser and copy and paste into an email. Email link anywhere in the world. Link is valid until someone hits that gray download button.

Tip: I have found with AO MP3 downloads it works best to click on the manual download link rather than the gray download button. The manual download link is on the same page as the gray download button. It is buried in the text of instructions. You probably won't even know it's a link until you hover your cursor over the text.

This method has worked well for me. I have done this numerous times. Contact me if you wish to experiment before you try it. Also, there is no way for the person receiving the gift to see your contact or billing information.

Hi Carly I see I missed your post. Sorry! But ditto with Barbls answer :)

Comment by Barbls on September 29, 2011 at 5:00pm

When it comes to the album you will be able to gift and donate and those sales,once they are downloaded by the organizations and/or people you are sending to, will count on the iTunes chart and as sales. You can also gift singles, but only do that when you know the person you are sending to will download it so it will chart at iTunes and count as a sale.  I know to some this is confusing, but you have to think in terms of two different charts going on. The actual Sales charts and the site's chart like iTunes, Amazon. They have their own rules in place as to how they chart a song or album. Always remember when buying multiples. They all count toward billboard charting as Sales!!!

Comment by Barbls on September 29, 2011 at 4:45pm

Carly all sales on itunes count toward charting to billboard, but only the 1st sale counts toward charting at iTunes. Sales are sales, but for itunes charting purposes they only count the 1st purchase!! I hope that is clear for you now. We want Adam's single and Album to be at the top of the billboard charts. to me that is #1, but we also want him to rate high on the iTunes chart. We just need more people downloading to get Adam on the iTunes chart. But if you multiple buy at iTunes all your sales will be reported for charting on Billboard. They are actual sales!!!

a little confused about sales vs. charting on itunes. i guess u r saying lindajean that the multiple sales will still count (towards billboard and other charting #'s? which need to be based on sales, don't they --or not? or the multiple itunes sales count but only in terms of dollars in/out meaning money in someone's pocket?).  but charting on itunes is a different matter (and how about gifting there? if i buy one but then gift 20, does that count as one -- for the itunes chart??).

confusing myself here. i know how imp't pre-orders are but do they wait until after the first week of sales to chart? i can't remember. bec if so, depending on the price, it might be cheaper to go in and buy the first day or two at an actual store and avoid shipping. plus, i now realize there are people who will not buy anything online bec they are worried about security. boy i hope we get a first week sale :)

Comment by Barbls on September 18, 2011 at 7:16pm

Lindajean, I read that in order to make sure your multiple sales count to buy no more than 20 per store and 10 at each online site, especially iTunes. I forget the name of the person from Billboard, but he gave a reply to a question about this n one of the forums. Do you have that. If you don't, let me know and I will send it to you.  I think we need more information about this to inform everyone, including those the gift and donate.  Barbara

Comment by Lindajean139 on September 18, 2011 at 5:11pm

In order for it not to count (physical CD's) you'd have to buy several hundred at a time which I don't think anyone will be doing :) iTunes however only charts on iTunes on the first copy you purchase but if you buy multiple copies it still counts as a sale.

Comment by Lindajean139 on September 11, 2011 at 9:39am

Hi Carly,


Yes, it would be the same as buying something off of Ebay. The sales from Amazon itself counts but when you click on the links for those independent sellers on Amazon those don't count.

Comment by on September 10, 2011 at 3:14am

i'm sure you guys know this but others may not (wondering what u meant about strategic ordering Oshi) -- but if you buy from an independent vendor (who might be a re-seller) anywhere, the sale will not count -- bec obv it already has, from the first buyer. i don't know how many ppl pay attention to that when they're on amazon for e.g.

Comment by Lindajean139 on September 8, 2011 at 12:33pm

I like the idea of a link to Amazon. Thanks Carly!


I will add it this weekend (I'm sneaking in from work right now) I'll add B&N too. I'll just need a bit of time to think about placement on the page. Actually, I have an idea :)



Comment by dylangirl on September 8, 2011 at 7:49am

Good idea me in mind of impulse buys at registers...merchants know how the mind's in front of you last minute, you like it, you go for it.

Know what you mean about scarce on shelves, as a lot of us do I always look for Adam's CD's ....seeems to be fewer on the shelves and not at the lower prices.

Comment by on September 8, 2011 at 2:05am

i just posted this link at AO (why do i try . . .) from billboard. since this seems to be functioning as our unofficial sales thread i'll drop it off. all that's important in it (for our purposes) is that there has been an increase in hard copy cd sales (the first in a long time) -- and that sales (i.e., discounting the product) is noted as one of the possible reasons.

of course it annoys me even more now that FYE and GN are so scarce on the shelves.

Comment by debbielynn on September 7, 2011 at 5:06pm

I too agree with more prominent links are for buying the more likely we are to do it

There's no stopping a woman on a shopping mission...Men are welcome to join in also

Comment by Barbls on September 7, 2011 at 4:23pm

I also agree with that links to Amazon as well as Barnes & Noble and any other online places you can gift or donate from should be prominently displayed!!

Comment by QuietRetreat on September 7, 2011 at 7:55am

I agree with will play a big part in getting Adam's sales up.  Anything that will make it easier and "need it now" for the fans to make those purchases is a plus.

Comment by on September 7, 2011 at 12:54am

lindajean -- what do you think about keeping a link to amazon somewhere above so we can make impulse buys LOL -- especially when there are sales? i know you (i think it was you) posted a link here when there recently was a sale and i sent off a bunch. if we kept the links to each of his products we could keep track of the sales more easily and buy more easily. 

Comment by Linda on September 6, 2011 at 1:32am

Can't have too many parties, especially to celebrate Adam!

Comment by Barbls on September 6, 2011 at 12:38am

Linda, We are definitely going to be throwing a party on Adam Storm the moment Adam's single is released and then when his album is released. We will let everyone know what is planned and hope everyone will come and share these monumental moments here at our Adam Storm, site as well as at Adam Storm on Twitter and Facebook!!

Comment by Linda on September 5, 2011 at 3:13pm

I think lots of people might want to arrange release parties.  Besides missing the shows, I miss being with other fans.  I really enjoyed being with everyone in Sainte-Agathe, where we took over the whole town (there were as many fans as residents).

Comment by Lindajean139 on September 5, 2011 at 1:00pm

Linda: I love Seattle. I've spent a lot of time there it's in my top 5 of favorite cities. Maybe an east coast party can be arranged. I know RCAEd said they are going to try and do something about the shipping charges.

Comment by QuietRetreat on September 4, 2011 at 6:38pm

I'm really enjoying working with preparing for the "Adam Storm" that's coming soon...but not soon enough.  I'm sure you all agree. It's great that we're getting ourselves positioned to "push" Adam's next release as soon as it drops.  I'm needing the love from his next album.
