Spring has arrived, but with it war looms...
We're not using our blog as a platform to discuss war, but we will use it to discuss that war creates the need for additional humanitarian aid, so consider using your Givz donation to support a charity that can get aid to those who need it most.
We've chosen to partner with Givz, and here's what that means.
Anyone spending $90 or more on our site will get $10 to give to any US based charity they want. It's as simple as clicking a few buttons after checkout. We've highlighted some of our favorites, but to be clear:
You can literally type in almost any 501(c)(3) charity you want and support whichever is most important to you.
This is free money and our way of supporting those in need. No strings, no registration. You pick the charity, we send the funds.
Our current highlighted charities are:
Red Cross- Any war, regardless of the side you choose, results in humanitarian crisis. Red Cross is a trusted provider of aid, both locally and internationally and is our highlighted charity
International Rescue Committee- A charity we focused on in the past during the Beirut port explosion. They're known to be a positive force in international crisis and have already issued a statement on Ukraine.
Doctors Without Borders- By far the most well known and respected medical assistance program for troubled areas, which covers a wide area and many countries.
National Kidney Foundation- It's not all international crisis. March is Kidney Awareness Month, so give to the NKF and maybe skip an extra beer or two this week. As someone who has a relative going through dialysis, my heart goes out to anyone experiencing kidney related issues.
We have two overriding goals here. The first is to find a way to donate that is sustainable for us as a small company. Simply put, we can't bankroll a massive donation, but this allows us to take a slice of our profit and put it to a good cause. The second goal is we don't want to dictate where your money goes. We can't do that with a single large donation. Givz allows us to achieve both of these goals. Simple as that.
Again, you can support any US based 501(c)(3) charity you choose! The $10 you receive is yours to spend as you see fit. As much as we hope you share our views on the world, we are the kind of company that wants to empower choice, whether that is what pair of headphones to pair with a ModMic or which cause is most vital to solve first. The choice is yours!
So give well and thank you from everyone here at Antlion Audio!
