A Fat Wreck In Final 48 Hours of Campaign + Skate Deck Giveaway
In less than 48 hours, A Fat Wreck will close the Indiegogo campaign to crowd-fund the unofficial Fat Wreck Chords documentary. It’s been far more successful than anyone imagined, and I am stoked on all the support this has been receiving! Fat Wreck Chords holds a special place in my cold, dead heart and I can’t wait to see this documentary in its entirety. So far, the campaign has received over 550 donation from over 20 different countries, including a few donations over $1000 from Germany and Japan. The teaser has been translated into three different languages and 360% of the goal has been raised so far.
I know what some of you are thinking and these guys are not pocketing the extra donations. Instead, they are putting them right back into the film and the perks. You still have two days to grab some of the perks for yourself, check them out below.
