The audio industry have raised more than $94,000 for Save the Children over the past five years, through software and hardware auctions in an annual fundraising on the KVR Audio forum (organised by KVR member Luftrum). In 2015, they raised an amazing $31,366 breaking all former years!
This year is no exception and the funds raised in October will be marked for the refugee children from the Syrian war. They need food, warm clothes and blankets - winter is coming and the situation is probably worse than ever. 4.8 million people have fled the Syrian war, half of them are children (according to UNHCR). At the time of writing, over 50 companies and developers are donating software and hardware on auction and more will join throughout the month.
The charity is organized via the Call to Arms: Charity 2016 forum thread, containing more specific information about the fundraising. Everyone is welcome to bid on the products listed. All auctions end on October 31st.
