Full of Hell Donate Excess Crowdfunding Money to Charity
Talk about First World problems: while sometimes crowdfunding campaigns fail spectacularly, they often yield better-than-expected results, with fans ultimately giving more money than the band needed to achieve their goal in the first place.
Such was the case when Full of Hell recently launched a crowdfunding campaign to help cover the costs of their van and trailer — which included all of their gear and merch — being stolen in Atlanta earlier this month. The band ultimately raised more than $37,000, which apparently covered the cost of all their stolen possessions and then some — ’cause they’ve donated $1,100 to Rock to the Future, a non-profit “that provides music education for Philadelphia’s youth from underserved neighborhoods and under-resourced schools at no cost to them or their families.”
It goes without saying that this is a very classy move on Full of Hell’s part. It will, and should, only further endear them to the metal community. Here’s hoping other bands that raise excess funds follow their example.
