Noise Kitchen and Bastl Instruments  are teaming up to donate all of our profits from the sales of the next 100 Kastl Drums and 50 Microgranny Noir towards two charities doing good work within the context of the current crisis in Ukraine. 

We are supporting Médicins Sans Frontières (Msf DoctorswithoutBorders) and Pomáháme lidem na útěku (Pomáháme lidem na útěku). We trust and believe in their work, and arrived at this decision after much discussion and weighing up of many suitable alternatives — all this to say, there are many helpful causes to support in this time. Head over to Bastl's page to check the full statement from us both. 

To clarify on the purchasing, you don't need to find a special product page, every purchase of a Kastl Drum or Microgranny Noir mean be money towards the causes specified, until the amount we have marked aside is sold. 

Of course, there's no better way to help Ukraine than direct giving or volunteering time with no return. As a small business, donating profits from two of our flagship models seemed the best method we could think of to raise the biggest donation.
