Update: I've just met with Chad and have sent him a check through GoFundMe. He should be getting it within the next week or so.

The surplus still has to stay in a pending state for a few days due to the way GoFundMe works. As soon as it becomes accessible it'll be headed for the One Fund.

Thanks again to everyone who helped out, this has been an awesome experience.

WE DID IT! Thanks to everyone, we reached the goal late last night! I honestly thought that the website would stop accepting donations once we hit the goal but apparently not - we're more than $700 over at this point!!

I've been in touch with Chad and he will absolutely be getting the $2500 that the goal was set for, ASAP.

As for the surplus, I'm planning on giving it to the One Fund as I think it captures the same spirit in which these donations were given. If, however, anyone feels uncomfortable with that please feel free to contact me through the email link on this page and I can refund your donation if you gave at a point in time after we hit the goal. I'm hoping most everyone will be happy with the decision to donate the surplus though.

Thanks to everyone for being amazing and simultaneously surprising me yet exactly meeting my expectations of how awesome Bostonians are.

I'm going to keep this open for a little bit longer, so feel free to keep giving if you want to give to the One Fund via this page! Love you guys!

-Bobby

Chad Duncan's car got absolutely wrecked by a bunch of jamokes who took a celebration and turned it into their own idiotic demolition derby. The Boston Globe reports that Chad is going to be out about $2500 bucks in insurance and new lease fees.

That is stupid. Boston's better than that. Especially after this year, no one who truly loves the city of Boston should ever engage in willful wanton destruction. Let's band together and help Chad pay for what these idiots did. He shouldn't have to.



Just updating with some details - Chad is a stranger to me; I just felt angered by the actions of these destructive people and wanted to do something to help. I'll be meeting with him soon and I'm currently working with GoFundMe to ensure that the money gets to him as quickly and efficiently as possible. The remainder will be going to the One Fund

Nothing gets posted to your wall. Only your Facebook name & photo are used.

Its funny how grown "adults" lose control and become indistinguishable from preschool children in their decision-making and behavior. It's nice to see real adults with a selfless heart for charity step up and set an example.

Hey guys! Before you close the account and send the funds to the One Fund, let's make sure Chad's expenses are really taken care of.... I know estimates can be wrong and if that car's roof is damaged, body work can be very expensive! And, WOOHOO for my fellow awesome Bostonians for setting this right! The good prevails when we work together!

Thank you for doing this, and I think the One Fund is the perfect place for the extra. Cheers!
