Cable Co's 2011 Summer Against Hunger  
Please use this link to view as a webpage: Current Newsletter.
Once again this August every Dollar you spend on your Audio System can generate a Dollar for CARE- Guaranteed!

This is the best time of the year to feel good about making a system upgrade! The details of our 16th Annual Summer Against Hunger appear in the ad which is running in the issues of Stereophile and The Absolute Sound mailing in August. (You can click on the ad to enlarge it and use the zoom feature.)

Think about it. Think small, or think big.

Buy a best bang for the buck upgrade, a HiFi-Tuning fuse and the $39-$85 cost of the fuse also is donated funds to CARE!
Try a $99 Shunyata Research Venom 3 power cord and help CARE get another $99.

Get the idea?
Work on your room acoustics with Cathedral Sound or RoomTune acoustic panels, or go with the alternative acoustic approaches from Shakti Hallographs or Synergistic Research Acoustic ART and every dollar you spend on your room is another dollar for CARE!
Upgrade the performance of every component in your system with a line conditioner from Audience, Audio Magic, Chang Lightspeed, PS Audio, Shunyata Research, Silver Circle Audio, or Synergistic Research's Powercell.
Manufacturers and distributors of racks and resonance control products such as Finite Elemente, Gingko Audio, Herbies Audio Lab, Harmonic Resonance Systems (HRS), Marigo Labs, Shun Mook, Symposium, and Target are all contributing based on your purchases to ensure that every dollar you spend on their products in August is a dollar for CARE.

Headphones? You are into headphones? Plug a pair of Grado's into the new best-in-the-world Cavalli Audio Liquid Fire headphone amp and help CARE with a nice equivalent matching contribution from these manufacturers, The Cable Company, and other matched funding sources.
Analog lovers alert: from Clearaudio or Hanss Acoustics turntables, to cartridges from Benz-Micro, Clearaudio, Grado, and Lyra to phono stages from Fosgate, PS Audio, or Sutherland Engineering, or how about the new Graham Supreme B-44 tonearm. All will generate matching contributions to CARE!

And then there are cables!

The long list of cable manufacturers from Acoustic Zen to Wireworld , from Analysis Plus to Voodoo, appears below and you really should think about upgrading your cables, or maybe you like to roll your own with connectors from DH Labs, Oyaide, Wattgate, WBT, and others.

Whatever your audiophile needs or wants, treat yourself in August and feel good about helping CARE at the same time!

We believe this Dollar for Dollar fund raising program to be unique in all the world! Aggregate donations during the 15 years of Summer Against Hunger, including match funding, exceed $2 million, and have helped support CARE programs in some of the poorest parts of the world including reducing deforestation through supporting small scale irrigation in lowland areas of Liberia, development of agricultural infrastructure in Madagascar, building schools in north central Nicaragua, and basic child survival nutrition and health programs in Sierra Leone.

If you have a few minutes, here is a video which shows what $150k can do for people and relief and development projects around the world. Thanks to Sarah McLachlan for the cool idea (you can skip the ad).

This program applies to all orders placed in August, whether through our websites, or by phone, or in person.

FAQ:
Q: Does every Cable Company purchase - sale items, used items, etc. - in August qualify for a donation?

A: Yes, and this includes used products too. But purchases of (new) products from the "sponsored" brands listed below generate twice the benefit to CARE of your other August purchases from The Cable Company (and UsedCable.com).

Q: Do I still qualify for my usual "Frequent Flyer" discounts and incentives during the fundraiser?

A: Definitely. You will still get the best service and pricing. The fact that every penny you spend also benefits CARE is a (big) bonus!

Q: How does it work that CARE benefits to the tune of the complete value of my purchase on a dollar for dollar basis? I have never heard of such a thing? How can you afford to do this?

A: It is all about getting matching funds from various sources, because you are right, we couldn't do it all alone! The specific details appear in the "Here's the Math" section of our ad, but in a nutshell:
-we donate 5%of your purchase,
-if your are buying a new product from one of the sponsoring brand names (the list of participating vendors appears in the ad.), this generates another 5%;
-the combined total of these first two contributions is matched by an anonymous donor, so we are up to 20% of the value of your purchase if it is a sponsored product;
-CARE helps us to line up at least a 4:1 match from unaffiliated third parties to get us up to 100% for the sponsored purchases, or 50% for other purchases.

That anonymous donor guarantees that the program gets to these levels for up to $250,000, even if the third party matched funding could not be found.

In fact, in the last few years our customers' August purchases have not just generated a 1:1 donation to CARE. Rather due to the availability of match funding from third parties, as much as $4.20 was donated to CARE for each $1.00 in purchases from The Cable Company. (That would be $2.10 even for used products and brands not on our sponsors list.)
