Third Man Records offers helping hand for Flint‏

The water crisis in Flint, Michigan hits way too close to home for 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 (you!) to see to it that the people affected by this crisis are cared for.

While they know many of you are always willing to give out of the kindness of their heart, they figured they would up the ante a bit a throw in a potential prize into the good karma pot. Once all donations have been collected, one good Samaritan will be randomly selected to become a Platinum Vault Subscriber for the next 5 years (FIVE YEARS!) on TMR.* That’s TWENTY free Vault packages. Unheard of! You can donate at their dedicated Crowdrise page here and be automatically entered to win:




100% of donated funds will benefit The United Way of Genesee County’s Flint Water Fund, which is dedicating 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, Michigan. 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.

THANK YOU for helping Third Man Records improve the current situation in which their neighbors find themselves. Please chip in what you can and spread the word to others with a giving spirit who may be able to help. And, if you’re a Detroit local, feel free to swing by their Cass Corridor location with a gallon or case of water by TODAY (1/25) to be entered into their Hateful Eight Box Set Giveaway!

*Platinum Vault subscribers receive 4 packages annually containing exclusive vinyl and merchandise, access to exclusive content and our 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.
