Hey everyone this is Ben. I just wanted to share a video real quick. I know we have been off the grid working on music and all that but recently, the homie I share the stage with has lost his father. Bai's dad passed away while living over in Africa, working for a political group in Sierra Leon.
The passing came quick and left Bai and his family scrambling to get the money together so that the 5 of them can travel to Africa to bury their father.
We are not made of money. Random deaths are already hard to deal with but I've witnessed Bai and his family rally together to try and figure out their money situation so that they can make it to Africa. They leave tomorrow... Scared to deal with anything involving the Ebola break out in Sierra leon, but happy to finally have the chance to put their dad to rest.
Bai recorded this video earlier to share on Facebook. His dad has been nominated along with five others for the Taylor Morris: Glow Stick 5K that is coming up August 23rd... If you fucked with us a year ago, you may probably recall that we performed at the Glow Stick 5K after party.
Bai and his family have an opportunity to win ALL of the proceeds raised the night of the 5K but it's based on votes. It's up to us, to rally together and get Bai's family enough votes to win the money. Last year, the 5K raised $8,000. If this year gets anywhere near that, that would be a great help with the flight costs alone for the Carew's to get to Africa.
I'm sorry for rambling but I can't stress how much we need you guys. Listen to Bai's story and if you get a chance... pop over to the GlowStick5K.com website and vote for Bai's dad, Joshua.
We appreciate you always and forever. Thank you for your time.
Peace and love.
