On Thursday, November 8, 2012, SoundToys of Burlington, Vt., which develops signal-processing software, delivered a check in the amount of $38,384 to Team Rubicon’s Super Storm Sandy Relief effort. The total raised by SoundToys customers for its one-day special online sale on November 5 was $37,439 in sales plus $945 in direct donations to Team Rubicon.
The company states, "This shows that people can pull together, and they can make a difference. To the great crew at Tape Op, Sonic Scoop, and each and every person who made a purchase or donation, SoundToys proudly and humbly issues a sincere thank you."
“This is by far our largest sales day ever," says SoundToys' Mitch Thomas. "And the biggest before that was the benefit we did for Gulf Coast Relief. We are so proud of the music community for making this happen. This is something to believe in.”
Jake Wood, Team Rubicon president and co-founder, adds, "We are so grateful to SoundToys and everyone who purchased for such a generous donation. This will bolster Team Rubicon's current mission of helping those affected by Hurricane Sandy and allowing veterans to put their unique set of skills to work in responding to this natural disaster."
