You Can Help Bring Music Back to Phil Campbell

This little high school lies just a little to the north and west of where we live in Empire, Alabama. Like so many communities here in Alabama Phil Campbell was hit on April 27th by a tornado.
The storm that stomped through Phil Campbell was an F5 (the most destructive). Twenty six people died in this small town and all of the schools were damaged.
Glee Give a Note is sponsoring a contest that gives money for high school bands. I know there are a lot of deserving high schools across America, but I doubt that any need your vote more than Phil Campbell High School.
You can vote once a day and they have a shot at getting $50,000 if they get enough votes. Please take about three minutes and watch this video and consider voting for Phil Campbell, and share the link if you'd like to help more.
The son of one of our friends is in the video.
Thanks so much.


  1. What a great idea, count me in!

  2. I went over and voted. I'm sorry these kids are going through a hard time. Losing so many people in that way must have traumatized them. It is good to see some of them feel it made them stronger. Tragedy does have that effect also.

  3. Happy to do my little bit :-)

  4. Request granted, Sir Rick! With a laughing heart... :-)

  6. I voted for Phil and will continue to vote every day. Please keep the link up. It will remind us all and there might be people who don't see this post who will vote later. Why live without the arts?


  7. Of course I voted. What a horrible event and I feel so sorry for the students. Nice of you to alert us.

  8. A brilliant idea!

  9. I have been voting each day. This is such a worthwhile cause. I hope everyone remembers that they can vote once everyday until 11/7. Phil Campbell High School Band is now in 2nd place, but they are less than 2,000 votes out of 1st. So, every vote counts!!
