Back in March of 2022, Soundtoys made an ongoing pledge to donate 100% of sales from Radiator to not-for-profit organizations as a way for our users to help people in need. We are proud to announce that, together with our customers, we raised $53,640 for the International Rescue Committee (IRC), whose mission is to help civilians whose lives are shattered by conflict and disaster in more than 50 countries around the world, including Gaza, Ukraine, Lebanon, Myanmar, Syria, Sudan, Yemen, Haiti, and Afganistan.
“It can be disheartening to see so much division and violence in the world, but I’m always encouraged by the outpouring of support we get when we try to raise awareness and support for the causes that we believe in. We’re proud of the work the International Rescue Committee is doing, and we’re proud of our creative and caring community who continue to help us help others.” – Ken Bogdanowicz, founder and CEO of Soundtoys
The IRC helps those affected by humanitarian crises (including climate crises) to survive, recover and rebuild through aid, action, and advocacy. Donations are allocated to areas where the need is greatest, and all efforts are focused on safety, health, education, financial wellbeing, and empowerment, particularly for women and girls. The organization makes a direct impact by delivering assistance in crisis-affected communities and collaborating with other NGOs to assess needs and provide essential assistance. The IRC advocates for resettlement of the most vulnerable refugees, protection of rights to asylum, commitments to international humanitarian law, and appropriate financing and policy to respond to the evolving needs of people in crisis.
“The humanitarian imperative, and the principles of neutrality, impartiality, independence, and humanity which drive it forward have never been more needed.” – International Rescue Committee
From all of us at Soundtoys, THANK YOU for your support and willingness to get involved.
Soundtoys will continue to donate all proceeds from Radiator to organizations we feel are making an important difference. The next recipient of Radiator proceeds is Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) / Doctors Without Borders. The brave people of MSF are doing important work providing urgent medical humanitarian assistance for people and places that have been stricken by war or natural disaster – often putting their own lives at risk in some of the most dangerous parts of the world.
Soundtoys has an established activist history. Over the years we have raised more than $780,000 for humanitarian and civil rights organizations, including support for including support for Médecins Sans Frontières / Doctors Without Borders, World Central Kitchen, the Red Cross Society of Ukraine, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), Migrant Offshore Aid Station (MOAS), National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) Legal Defense Fund, Team Rubicon, and Gulf Restoration Network.
