The band announced that they are starting the process of converting their old, unsold merch stock into health masks for first responders. While details are scarce, they confirmed the plan in a tweet earlier today:
We have started the process of turning appropriate stock merchandise from our web store into fabric face masks for frontline medical workers and essential personnel. Further information how you can help will follow later in the week. Stay safe, stay connected and stay inside!— thursdayband (@thursdayband) March 30, 2020
Here's hoping more bands follow suit and make the most of their unsold merch stock. A tutorial on how to make a COVID-19 face mask is available here.
