Government Love For Trent Reznor
2009-07-02 by Lestrade | 27 Comments

As we posted last week, "Nine Inch Nails recently set up a fund for Eric De La Cruz; a fan who was in urgent need of a heart transplant. In a matter of days the band and its community raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for Eric..."

Yesterday, July 1, Trent Reznor was presented with "proclamations from the US House of Representatives (three Congressmen in total), the US Senate, the NYS Governor, the NYS Senate, the NYS Comptroller and the Suffolk County Legislature," as stated in an email from a fan, Mike Caplice. He goes on, "These proclamations were in honor of the generous work done by Trent and the entire NIN Community to help Eric. You can see a picture of the presentation as well as pictures of the procs/citations themselves at my twitpic account.

"I wanted the entire NIN community to see that their efforts have been recognized by all levels of government. I’m an 18-year fan of the band who has two parents with cancer, and have seen just how flawed the US Healthcare system is. I thought this was a really special moment for all of us who have seen the band and the community evolve over the years into a really positive and powerful force."

but that's the magic of it. To think that a whole community of people actually care enough to save someones life. It makes me feel great to know that so many people actually care.

Well, I know people care. I don't know, it just offends me when I see stuff like specials on TV about Africa or victims of natural disasters, specials loaded with celebrities asking us for our money.

How much money did the people loaded with money provide?

that's the whole point. These are normally helpless, average people who had a chance to help somebody, and took it.

when a celebrity donates to africa or natural disasters, its one thing. Its a whole other thing when somebody motivates a WHOLE group of people to help.

It kinda makes you realize how powerful music can be, that it can motivate people to save lives.
