The pop-rock group set up a campaign on the fundraising website IndieGogo.com in the immediate aftermath of the Newtown tragedy in the hope of collecting money to help provide support to the families of those killed in the shooting.
In a series of Twitter posts on Monday, the band writes, "THNKS 2 ALL who donated $$ to our Sandy Hook Elementary Victims Fund-doubled the goal of 50k-sent $100k last week 2 help build a new school!
"We can't imagine what the families of Newton, CT have gone thru in the last 3 + months- still haven't forgotten- hope 2 visit the new school."
