We’ve had some very special connections with a lot of folks over the years, but the bond with our friends in Thrice might take the cake. Simply put, we would not be where we are today without their longstanding support and dedication. It’s such an honor to commemorate their influence on us as an organization — and people — as they say goodbye to the music world for the time being.
Thrice’s impact on this organization is immeasurable. It’s impossible to calculate how many lives flourish today in Central Africa due to the tens of thousands of dollars they’ve raised for our programs. Beyond that, how each band member has helped mold our personal character isn’t quantifiable. Their humility is a trait we all strive to emulate in our own personal lives. These four guys have truly left a legacy upon this world.
Dustin, Eddie, Riley, and Teppei, thank you for being amazing individuals who set the gold standard not just as musicians, but as people. You’ve taught all of us how to be better human beings and how powerful a role we can play in benefitting others. It’s been an honor partnering with you for seven years. We love you dearly.
