Soundtoys made an ongoing pledge in March 2022 to donate 100% of the sales revenue from their Radiator plug-in to not-for-profit organisations as a way for their users to contribute to people in need. They have now announced that a donation of $53,640 has been made to the International Rescue Committee (IRC) to make good on their promise.
The IRC was founded to help 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 organisation has a direct impact, delivering assistance in crisis-affected communities and collaborating with other NGOs to assess needs and provide essential assistance. The committee advocates for the resettlement of the most vulnerable refugees, protection of rights to asylum, commitments to international humanitarian law, and appropriate financing and policies that respond to the evolving needs of people in crisis.
“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
Soundtoys say that they will continue to donate all Radiator proceeds to organisations that they feel are making an important difference. The next recipient is Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) / Doctors Without Borders, who provide urgent medical humanitarian assistance for people and places that have been stricken by war or natural disaster — often putting their own lives at risk by working in some of the most dangerous parts of the world.
