City of the Weak ~ ENGINE FUND

Hello.  My name is Ed and I am a friend of the members of the Rock/Pop band City of the Weak from Minneapolis, Minnesota. They are an energetic group of 5 young people who are trying to live their dream and pursue the life of a touring band.  They purchased a Sprinter van last year and put alot of time, sweat, money  & blood into trying to retro fit it for the road for 5 bandmates to basically eat, sleep and live in this van for weeks at a time.  Well, today 4/7/15 their van blew it's engine.  They are now stuck in somewhere in Kentucky trying to get to Chicago, Illinois for a show tonight. They are in desperate need to get this vans engine replaced so they can continue touring and bringing their music to their fans across the country.  Did I neglect to say that these are some of the BEST young people I have met in a long time.  They are such nice people and are so down to earth and they don't even know that I am doing this gofundme campaign. If you are able to donate some money, I and the band will be so grateful and appeciative. 100% of the proceeds from this fundraiser will go to City of the Weak. Thanks for your time. Ed
