The Yellow Bird Project

The Yellow Bird Project is a Montreal-based nonprofit organization that collaborates with indie bands to make unique artistic awesomeness happen on a regular basis. It benefits charities such as Amnesty International, St. Jude's Childrens Hospital, Teenage Cancer Trust, Acoustic Neuroma, Greenpeace, World Wildlife Fund and many, many more. Bands on board with YBP include Au Revoir Simone, Rilo Kiley, Of Montreal, Bon Iver, The Shins and The National. YBP recently released an Indie Rock Coloring Book, which was just too cool to ignore posting about. Plus, and I know its a bit early to start thinking about this, but any of the items they sell would be an amazing gift for those savvy-indie-music friends you may have come the Holidays. While you browse the website, go ahead and enjoy their theme song, created by folksy Kristian Matsson, aka The Tallest Man On Earth.
