Knocked Loose Raise Nearly $10K For Domestic Abuse Organization

Knocked Loose are kicking off 2020 by giving back. The band recently donated nearly $10,000 to The Center for Women and Families.

The band raised the funds by selling a t-shirt back in October for Domestic Violence Awareness month.

“Every year, over 12 million women and men are victims of domestic violence,” stated the band at the time, “A reminder that there are survivors and victims with voices that need to be heard.” The group sold the shirts in memory of Tiffany Tomerlin.

Now, the band has donated the money to the organization, as they revealed in a Twitter post.

“First post of the new year and we would like to announce that we were finally able to donate the check to The Center for Women and Families! I am completely blown away by how well our community came together for such an amazing cause. Almost $10,000 raised.”

They added, “This blew our expectations out of the water. We are so grateful for any and every one that helped by purchasing or sharing the post, you helped spread awareness on a topic that often is forgotten and it will impact so many. From every single one of us, thank you!”

Knocked Loose will embark on their New Zealand and Australia later this week. The band will also hit several U.S. festivals in late spring as well. See all their tour dates here.
