In addition to The Con X: Covers album, Tegan and Sara are going on a tour to celebrate 10 years since The Con, and the proceeds from both the tour and Covers are going directly to the Tegan and Sara Foundation.

"We wanted the proceeds to go to our recently launched Tegan and Sara Foundation, which raises money for self-identified women and girls in the LGBTQ community,” Tegan and Sara said in a press release. "With that intention set, we asked 14 artists who were either outspoken allies of the LGTBQ community or LGBTQ themselves to each cover a song from The Con, in any fashion they saw fit. All the artists agreed to donate their time and energy to the project and their labels all agreed to waive their fees as well. We are beyond grateful for the contributions of each artist, and we hope fans of The Con will be moved by their interpretations.”
