Our friends and colleagues at Noise Engineering joins Music For Peace fundraiser by donating the profit from all purchases of Loquelic Iteritas and Clep Diaz modules and in addition they will match any profit made - up to 10 000 USD.
Read the statement from Noise Engineering:
When terrible things happen in the world, it can be hard to know how to help.
The Eurorack community has members around the world, and some have been directly affected by the horrible attacks in Ukraine. We’ve always felt fortunate to be a part of such a wonderful community, and we want to help in any way we can.
Our friends at Erica Synths, based in Latvia, have been working hard: as well as directly working to help Ukrainian synth manufacturers, they recently announced their Music for Peace initiative, donating profits from a selection of their modules to humanitarian aid. At the time of this writing, they have already contributed 43,904.00 EUR. We considered a few ways that we could help out, but realized we’d have the most impact if we involved you, our wonderful customers – this is about supporting our community and people in need, and the best way to do that is by working together.
In collaboration with our friends at Erica Synths, we are happy to contribute to the Music for Peace Initiative. Through the end of the month, we will donate the profit from all purchases of Loquelic Iteritas and Clep Diaz modules from our webshop. We will also add a company match of these profits, up to US$10,000.
The money will be added to the Music for Peace fund, to be donated to humanitarian aid via ziedot.lv.
Erica Synths continues to stand with the people of Ukraine and will donate all of the income - both manufacturing costs and profit - from our sales of several instruments to humanitarian aid organizations helping in Ukraine and providing support where it is needed the most.
Donations will be made via the biggest charity agency in Latvia - ziedot.lv and for full transparency we will publicly inform about the donations made. This will involve the following instruments - Black Digital Noise, Black Dual EG/LFO, Sequential Switch II & Snazzy FX - Mini Ark, Wow & Flutter, Tracer City.
The crisis in Ukraine is creating horrific casualties and displacing tens of thousands of people - for us, this is not only a matter of politics, but a question of humanity. We strongly feel, that no person deserves to endure the terror of war.
Every action taken and euro donated helps those in need - providing people with food, clothing, fuel and shelter is the least the rest of us can do. Our hearts go out to all of the people who have lost their homes and loved ones, those who have suffered injury or death and those who are forced to re-build their lives in exile.
To further scale up the effort of MUSIC FOR PEACE we have added two more modules to the fundraiser - the Graphic VCO and, in collaboration with our partners at Gamechanger Audio, the Plasma Drive eurorack module.
The campaign will be on-going until all stock is sold out and ABSOLUTELY ALL INCOME will be donated.
