Olsen has also announced that for the first 24 hours of the EP’s release, she’ll be donating 100 percent of Bandcamp digital sales to International Refugee Assistance Project, and their efforts to assist displaced Afghan people to provide legal services for those fleeing the country, advocating for the U.S. to expand evacuation efforts and pathways to safe relocation, using litigation to hold agencies accountable and uphold their clients’ rights, as well as other services.
