Megatrax Production Music, an independent production music source for film, broadcast, advertising and multimedia, is offering to help Japan in the wake of the recent tragic earthquakes and tsunami. During the months of March and April, Megatrax will donate 1% of all Needledrop Licensing revenues to the American Red Cross for Japanese relief efforts.
Megatrax’ CEO, Ron Mendelsohn states, “Seeing the devastating images coming out of Japan we felt that as a company we needed to do something more than just watch. One of our employees took the initiative to suggest a few possible ideas, and then after some discussion we decided to donate a portion of our needledrop licensing to the Red Cross in connection with their relief efforts in Japan. Although this is a small gesture, it shows that we care and hopefully it will spur other companies and individuals to do the same.”
Megatrax affiliate Sakura Notes has been putting their office in Tokyo back together since the earthquake, making the events in Japan seem very close. Sakura Notes licenses Megatrax’s catalogs to the Japanese market and collects on programming created around the world using Megatrax music and broadcasting in Japan.
Megatrax will be presenting a check to the American Red Cross in May, and the company urges its clients and employees to pitch in to help. For those who would like to contribute beyond the company’s contribution, the Red Cross is accepting donations at and via phone at 800-RED-CROSS.
