Save The Children Charity

Post by Jaap » Dec 13, 2017 7:40 am

I have not yet promoted my business with Triple Spiral Audio here, but for one time I do :)

The people who know me, know that I have a deep care for everything going on our planet and that I support privately some great charities and a true Christmas spirit is for me to think about all the people and the world we live on and thus I decided to do one last thing with Triple Spiral Audio and that is to run a campaign to raise money for Save The Children. which is the worlds biggest independent organisation helping children from all over the world.
Since I started with Triple Spiral Audio I have always donated 10% from every purchase to the Rainforest Alliance and they have been extremely happy with what I contributed. Now I want to raise awareness for our children, since they are our future and also the ones that need our protection and support.

I will kick off and add EUR 1.500 to the pool as my donation and how does this work? Simply purchase this "The Save The Children Bundle" and fill in as price the amount of money you want to donate. Only requirement is that it starts at a price of 15 EURO and you can decide for yourself the max. With your donation you get all the products from Triple Spiral Audio and you can decide which ones you want to download and use or not.
All the money raised with this will go to Save the Children

I will donate the money at the 27th of December and I will post you the results.

And here a playlist with music demos from all the soundsets.


Have a good Christmas everybody and I keep you all posted about the results!

Thanks Paul!

And this is also btw the last action with Triple Spiral Audio for the time being. Decided to put this aside since my new adventure with Raven Music Group started off nicely and want to focus completely on that (beside also my regular composing work). And though I donate regular to good causes, every year at the end of the year I pick one organisation and donate a nice sum to good organisation and thought it would be great to combine this for once :)

I don't own any of those, but Zebra remains on my radar, so I'm going to buy the bundle to support your good work, and to further tip the scales towards a Zebra purchase in 2018<G>! Well done sir!

Thank you very much Bill and if you need a helping hand later on when you get started with Zebra then give me a shout!

Great idea Jaap, I only have Omnisphere and even the Omni patches on their own are great value but more importantly it is for a great chariity as well.

Thank you Paul and good to hear the Omni patches find good use :) and if you plan to pick up one of the other synths one day you have a good starter kit :)

And yes, I am glad it finds good response as I think that caring about charity is not only this time of the year, but always, of course a good thing. Trying to do as much voluntary work here as possible and though there is often a lot of misconduct how funds gets used from the bigger organisations, I still find it amazing what can be done with it.
And so far I raised a little more now then 2000 EUR of this morning with my own contribution included.

Amazing Jaap, fair play to you.

(PS I only realised recently that the triple spiral is an old stone age / celtic symbol and is found inscribed in rock at Newgrange not too far from me).
