Follow-Up: The Menzingers Recoup Their Losses

Posted by: Jason Tate (05/04/12)
The Menzingers have recouped their losses from the robbery. Finally some good news.
From the BlogWe have incredible news. Eric, Greg and Dave March have all been able to sort out new passports in time for us to leave the UK. We have to extend our deepest and lifelong gratitude to the folks at Banquet Records. Through donations to our PayPal and the fundraiser set up by Banquet Records we are able to take care of our loses. We’ve closed all fundraising!

We’ve never felt such a sense of overwhelming gratitude, support, and community in our lives. There truly has never been such a strong affirmation of our life choices and the outstanding character of our friends and the people who listen to our music and care for us. From our friends at home to our friends abroad, the names popping up of people who have helped us have brought tears to our eyes. We love you all so much.

There will never be a way to thank everyone enough. Money and possessions will come and go throughout our entire lives. The memory and feelings of being a part of and embraced by such an incredible community during a time like this will absolutely last forever.

With Love,

Tom

Other bands should take note at how the donations were closed once the goal was reached.

Not necessarily the full $10,000 -- but enough to get them back on their feet and no longer feel like they need to ask for money. Actual amount doesn't really matter, just that they got enough to get back home and keep on being awesome. Really good they reached that point so fast though. Glad everyone pitched in so much in helping them out.

i think it's great that they closed the fundraising, rather then keep it open and get more money then they originally needed.
