Late last month, worship leader Jared Anderson and his band lost all of their instruments and equipment when their van and trailer were stolen. The police recovered the van, but efforts to find the missing utility trailer, despite an amazing amount of networking and support from local churches, police and media, have led nowhere.
Initial loss estimates surpass $75,000, which not only included instruments, queipment and merchandise, but a number of the band's personal items as well. In response to the theft, Anderson's label, Integrity Music, has set up a Fundly account to help the band begin to replace the items.
As of press time, the band had raised more than 75 percent of its $10,000 goal. In related news, Esterlyn's trailer also was stolen in the past year, and a FundRazr account exists to help offset those losses, too. Since April, taht campaign only has raised $355.
