Dear MUMFAMILY,

country-winnie-marshall:

As some of you have probably noticed, Aly (the girl who runs country-winnie-marshall) is not there for a while.. I try to update this blog but I'm good at all.

Aly was victim of a homophobic assault on the night of October 14th on her way from home and today, she needs help.

Her best friend created a page on gofundme: gofundme.com/fx3izg

"My best friend Aly was victim of a homophobic attack on the night of October 14th on her way from home. She’s suffering from several facial fractures (lower jaw, cheekbone) and missing nine teeth.

Medical bills have already started stacking up; MRI, CT-Scan and the first oral surgery. The first week was hard and it’s just the beginning .
We don’t know how long she’ll remain hospitalized but the three oral surgery and the replacement of her missing teeth will cost approximately $6300. The family have already incurred a lot of money in medical debt and are struggling to keep up.
We have set up this page in the hope that friends and people in general will be able to help relieve some of the financial strain.

Please feel free to leave a note with your donation. Every euro/dollar counts. If you can donate $1, that’s awesome. If you can donate more, that awesome too!
Anything you pledge will help during this desprate time for Aly and I would like to personally thank you for your support and donations.
Thank you ALL in advance for taking the time out of your day to visit the page.”

If you can help her with a donation of any size or just share this, it would be amazing. Come on Mumfamily, let’s do this for her! We are a family!

Come together, Mumford & Sons fans. While the nature of this post is not that which one would typically find on this blog, it must be shared. Please do what you can for Aly, even if that means a simple reblog to spread the word!

Thank you!

Austin to Boston
5 old VW camper vans. 4 bands. 3 thousand miles. 2 weeks. 1 gloriously backwards tour. The adventure starts after a fire-fuelled final night at Austin’s SXSW Music Festival, where the bands (Ben Howard, The Staves, Nathaniel Rateliff, Bear’s Den) pile into their rides and head northeast. They play everywhere from bars to barns, rooms to rooftops, packing out tiny venues and wowing crowds with their unique sounds. But heavy rainstorms, multiple breakdowns, and cramped conditions remind them that to push through sometimes you need to pull together. Featuring Mumford & Sons’ Ben Lovett and narrated by Gill Landry this documentary is about a modern tour, done the old fashioned way.
