The Hotline Helps Eric

As you may or may not know by now, NIN.com and the greater NIN online community has actively been involved in helping to raise funds for Eric De La Cruz so that he can receive a life-saving heart transplant. In addition to Trent taking in donations on NIN.com, we at the Hotline have decided to help raise money for Eric by taking donations as well.

If you recall, Hotline staffer ItsJustDave underwent surgery in 2007 to remove a cancerous mass from his abdomen. During that time, the Hotline sought to take in cash donations to support Dave. In addition, several long-time NIN collectors donated parts of their collection to be placed up for eBay auction, in order to raise more cash.

With this in mind, we're hoping to call upon the NIN collector community once again to donate some gems in their collections to raise money for a good cause. All proceeds of the auctions will go directly to Eric's fund. If interested, please contact me via email at swindley [at] theninhotline [dot] net, or via my linked name below.

The first auctions will go up today, and will include a Ghosts Ultra-Limited $300 set, and a ton of rare vinyl - all out of my own personal collection.

I hope all you collectors out there will rush to give back to someone and something that has given you so much over the years.
