The water crisis in Flint, Michigan hits way too close to home for us here at Third Man Records. To supplement our water collection efforts at our Cass Corridor retail and future pressing plan location, we are now enlisting the help of our friends worldwide (you!) to see to it that the people affected by this crisis are cared for.
While we know many of you are always willing to give out of the kindness of your heart, we figured we'd up the ante a bit and throw a potential prize into the good karma pot. Once all donations have been collected, one good samaritan will be randomly selected to become a Platinum Vault Subscriber for the next 5 years (FIVE YEARS!) on us.* That's TWENTY free Vault packages. Unheard of! You can donate at our dedicated Crowdrise page here and be automatically entered to win: crowdrise.com/thirdmanrecords
100% of donated funds will benefit The United Way of Genesee County's Flint Water Fund which is dedicating to serving the immediate and longterm needs of the community.
Monetary donations will first be used for the purchase of water filters, bottled water, emergency support services and prevention efforts in Flint, Michigan. After the short-term need of Flint residents has been met, any remaining funds will be directed to the Flint Child Health and Development Fund. This fund will provide aid to children and families with interventions that support positive health outcomes.
THANK YOU for helping us improve the current situation in which our neighbors find themselves. Please chip in what you can and spread the word to others with a giving spirit who may be able to help. And, if you're a Detroit local, feel free to swing by our Cass Corridor location with a gallon or case of water by Monday (1/25) to be entered into our Hateful Eight Box Set Giveaway!
