On Monday November 5th 2012, Soundtoys will donate one hundred percent of its online sales to help the storm victims of New York and New Jersey. As former residents of New Jersey, and with a great number of friends in both New York and New Jersey, as well as the large music community affected, Soundtoys feels a deep responsibility to assist as much as possible. All proceeds on this day will be donated to Team Rubicon (http://teamrubiconusa.org/), a rapid relief organization already working in both areas to aid the needy. The organization employs skilled veterans to assist in all areas of relief and aid.
“It’s hard to watch the people of New Jersey and New York, the communities we grew up in, the seaside towns we played in, and the city we love, suffer so badly. We feel that it’s the least we can do – to give one day of our work to help with this monumental relief effort.” said Ken Bogdanowicz, CEO of Soundtoys.
Tragedies like these require everyone to come together to help, so Soundtoys ask their customers and friends to help those in need. Simply place your order for any Soundtoys product or upgrade on the Soundtoys webpage (www.soundtoys.com) on Monday Nov 5th, and the combined total of sales for the entire day will be donated to help the victims of this tragic storm.
Soundtoys also asks, if you don’t happen to need any more plug-ins, please consider making a direct donation to Team Rubicon using the Soundtoys Storm Relief page here
Here’s more on the effort from Mike Lee with Team Rubicon:
“Team Rubicon, a veteran service organization that re-purposes the ready-made organizational and operational skills of military veterans for disaster relief has mobilized 1,000 veteran volunteers to lead Superstorm Sandy relief efforts for post disaster damage assessments, debris management, flood recovery operations, and emergency coordination support to local governments.
By re-purposing the skills (teamwork, decisive leadership, risk mitigation and management, logistics,emergency medicine) of returning military veterans, the Team Rubicon model is one that addresses two challenges by using them to solve each other – disaster response and veteran reintegration. Veterans are an untapped resource, and have the skills and experiences necessary to be effective in disaster response.”
