Singer Ryan Stevenson finds himself "in the eye of the storm" after he and his team had their touring vehicles and all of their instruments and production gear stolen. The incident took place after their last concert on their West Coast Tour. In all, they lost nearly $60,000 worth of gear.
After working with their insurance companies for over two weeks their claim was denied.
In response, Vertical Church, Stevenson's home church, has set up a funding page where fans and supporters can donate to help the band recoup from their losses. The page indicates that 100% of donated funds will go directly to Ryan and his team.
Here's Ryan giving us an update from his Twitter:
2 weeks ago, Ryan Stevenson's van, trailer and all of their gear was stolen. Their insurances are not covering the loss of any equipment. If anyone feels led to help them recover financially from this, you can do so, by following this link. https://t.co/B8zj6MSxcJ pic.twitter.com/2LN5joNkI9— MergePR (@MergePR) May 31, 2019
June 4 UPDATE – After less than 5 days, Good Samaritan fans were able to raise $60,000 to replace all the gear that was stolen!
Ryan announced the great news on his Instagram: “THANK YOU to each and everyone of you for your prayers, financial support and your support in sharing the donation link! I’m overwhelmed with gratitude, and so very humbled! I don’t really have the words to express my thanks! My heart is so full!!
