Like the rest of the world, the employees of Universal Audio in Scotts Valley, Calif., were shocked and saddened by the devastation caused by the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami in Japan. To help the people of Japan rebuild, Universal Audio worked with its UAD Powered Plug-In customers in April 2011, developing a promotion that resulted in a joint “customer and company” donation of $50,000 to American Red Cross relief efforts in Japan.

Universal Audio President Matt Ward presents Universal Audio's donation of $50,000 to Rita Chick, Chief Executive Officer of the Santa Cruz County Chapter of the American Red Cross.

“Although they may have slipped from the headlines over the past few weeks, the people of Japan are still suffering in large numbers from the largest catastrophe in that nation’s history,” says Bill Putnam Jr., founder of Universal Audio. “In April, we worked jointly with the American Red Cross and our customers to raise a $50,000 donation, which will directly support the relief efforts in Japan. Our customers were extremely generous, and we thank them for their outpouring of support.”

“The American Red Cross is grateful for Universal Audio’s compassion following what has been declared one of the most devastating earthquakes in history,” says Rita Chick, Chief Executive Officer of the Santa Cruz County Chapter of the American Red Cross. “Universal Audio’s incredible donation of $50,000 will help the American Red Cross channel support to our partner in Japan that is playing a critical humanitarian role and comforting the survivors.”

Universal Audio thanks the Red Cross and UA’s UAD Powered Plug-Ins customers for their part in making a difference to the people of Japan.

The American Red Cross shelters, feeds and provides emotional support to victims of disasters; supplies nearly half of the nation's blood; teaches lifesaving skills; provides international humanitarian aid; and supports military members and their families. The Red Cross is a charitable organization—not a government agency—and depends on volunteers and the generosity of the American public to perform its mission.
