Mashable posts this story: Trent Reznor And Twitter Help Raise over $850,000 for Fan in Need

NIN stops selling VIP backstage passes. In exchange Tony Hawk is now selling collectible skateboards on the NIN site:
Thank you so much for you help with this cause. Due to your generosity, we've raised over $850,000.

This response has been overwhelming - so much so we sadly have to stop accepting any more VIP package donations for the North American NIN/JA shows. We simply can't accommodate any more people! We are still accepting multiples of $10 donations and all VIP packages for the headlining shows in the rest of the world. Starting hopefully tomorrow, we'll be offering a limited package of 1,000 collectable / signed complete skateboards generously donated from my friend Tony Hawk. For a donation of $1,000. you will receive one of these and a signed-by-me copy of NIN's rarest CD release, STILL.

Please consider helping if you haven't already - we're showing the WORLD the power of a strong and committed community, and we're quite possibly saving a life in the process. We still have a ways to go financially. Thank you all.


We're donating 100% of the proceeds to an account set up by the Storey Dreams Foundation for Eric De La Cruz. Storey Dreams Foundation is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt non-profit organization and your donation is applicable for IRS tax credit. Tax-exempt number is 95-4295220. Donors will receive a receipt for tax purposes.

Trying to make it to the hospital in order to catch the doctors who normally round btwn 10-12. Fighting w Mom bc I am so frustrated, its so (cont'd..) hard to take care of 2 sick people and I am constantly frustrated bc she is technologically illiterate. She wants to use my phone, but (cont'd..) doesnt know how to dial it, she wants to answer, but she doesnt understand that either. When she finally answers, she is talking to our (cont'd..) relatives in Tagalog -- which, for some reason if you engage in, you must increase your volume by at least 75%. All this while I am trying 2 (cont'd..) sleep. AAAAARGH. I am trying to keep my cool, bc if I keep my focus on Eric then I can do it all, otherwise it's just challenging and I want (cont'd..) to give up. I am running out of steam and everything in my personal life is starting to fall thru the cracks. I can't remember the last time (cont'd..) I paid a bill. Anyhow, time to get going. I want to get in front of the doctors before they disappear again. More later...

More waterworks. Noelle, Eric's ex drove in today from Vegas. When she arrived I warned her not 2 cry when she went in the room, bc I don't (cont'd..) want to freak him out. I warned her that he has a million tubes etc running in and out of him and is hooked up to a bunch of machines so he (cont'd..) Can't talk. I literally debrief her for 5 mins on how she can't cry and has to be strong and what happens? I bring her in the room and Eric (cont'd..) Eric raises his hand a little so that she can hold it. I have to stand behind the bed because now I'm totally bawling.Eric has a ventilator (cont'd..) Mask on but I can tell he's crying. Noelle's eyes are wet, but I'm the one who is crying the hardest so I try to sneak out of the room so he (cont'd..) Doesn't see any of it. I'm downstairs in caf w Mom now so they can b alone. I'm so thankful she's here. (cont'd..) I have 2 remind myself 2 stop wearing black mascara. #ERIC

Wanted to address a money issue. I think there is a tweet floating around about a 1 million goal. I am still not sure about what my brothers (cont'd..) Medical expenses will be. So far we've paid close to 13k for his transport, at some point financial will sit down w us to discuss everything (cont'd..) else.Doctors said post-op meds can be 2-3k a month.We need to figure out what Medicare will cover. Eric doesn't have supplemental.Just want (cont'd..) To assure people that money left over goes to the foundation so we can continue to help people. The foundation is a 501c3. We r just asking (cont'd..) 4 ur support/prayers. I just wanted 2 address that "1 million dollar goal" tweet I saw earlier and remain transparent in re: 2 donations. (cont'd..) Please just continue to pray for #ERIC. Thank you.
