PRUNE: What made you decide to donate 100% of proceeds from your Laurel/Yanny merch to the Santa Fe High School Shooting victims?
CLOE: Fanjoy and I decided on it together because it just happened and we wanted a way to give back. I also realized nothing good comes out of these fast viral trends and I wanted to do my best to use this towards a good cause.
