Their desire to redeem their stolen items seemed bleak since the hotel they were staying at, didn't have security cameras. They filed a police report and posted on social media, but what happened next was beyond belief.

They created a GoFundMe page and within less then a day, raised $20,000!

It was a remarkable feat that even though they were unable to recover the stolen items, they recovered so much more. They were able to recoup their lost items but also was given the gift of support from their fans and community.

"It's crazy unreal. I get a lump in my throat thinking about it just because all these people are reaching out and helping us out in a moment of need,"

Sean McCarthy, Member

"Humbling, heartwarming and incredible because we reached our goal within 11 hours of launching the go-fund-me. The community we have is just incredible and we can't thank them enough for instantly standing up and helping support us,"

Griffin Sherry, Member

Community aid never ceases to amaze. The donations are now at $28,060
