The water crisis in Flint, MI struck a chord with Third Man Records. To supplement their water collection efforts at their Cass Corridor retail and future pressing plan location, they are now enlisting the help of their friends worldwide to see to it that the people affected by this crisis are cared for.
They have upped the ante and incorporated a potential prize into the good karma pot. Once all donations have been collected, one winner will be randomly selected to become a Platinum Vault Subscriber for the next five years on TMR, which is 20 free Vault packages. Donations are being collected at their dedicated Crowdrise page and donators will be automatically entered to win.
*Platinum Vault subscribers receive four packages annually containing exclusive vinyl and merchandise, access to exclusive content and TMR’s novelties shop, live chats with Jack White, live-streaming of special events and the opportunity to take advantage of ticket pre-sales. Valued at $240/year. Total value: $1200.
Every $13 an entrant donates is an entry to win, $33 grants three entries, and $113 grants 10 entries.
100% of donated funds will benefit The United Way of Genesee County's Flint Water Fund, which is dedicated to serving the immediate and long-term 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, MI. 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.
Third Man Records thanks participants on helping improve the current situation in which their neighbors find themselves. They encourage to chip in what you can and spread the word to others with a giving spirit who may be able to help.
