Faith, Fortitude and Friends -- helping in the wake of Hurricane from Indie Musical "Friend" - Amy Carol Webb


Amy Carol Webb Posted by PicasaOur friend has a great offer as a way to help raise funds for the American Red Cross. Running Mates, it is time to buy some Christmas presents.

Dear Friends and Family:

Give music and give help at the same time! Starting now, all proceeds from the sale of my "FAITH-FORTITUDE-FRIENDS" CD from my CDbaby page are going to the American Red Cross.

So many are suffering the wake of Hurricane Katrina, including musicians dear to us losing everything except the guitar they carried out with them. There will no doubt be benefit work on their behalf as soon as we can get organized and I will keep you up to date on that.

In the meantime, click to http://cdbaby.com/cd/acwebb3 and buy CD's for yourself, for your friends, for your church, school, community center, library, neighbors, Chanukah, Christmas, Solstice, Kwanza, birthdays, Halloween, Thanksgiving, everything you can think of - and then send this link on to loved ones and colleagues in your circles. Everybody wins - music lovers get more music, and more people get more of the help they need.

Better yet, buy a couple CD's and then go give blood. Hey, take a CD to the bloodmobile and give it away! Find your nearest blood donation center here https://www.givelife.org/index_flash.cfm?

Many CD baby artists you know and love are participating at CDbaby.com, and what a great opportunity to explore artists you don't know, donating along side the ones you do. Check it out at - http://cdbaby.com/group/redcross?cat=15 - buy a pile! Derek Sivers, founder of CDbaby.com, is a genius with a heart to match his smarts. We thank him for setting this up.

We thank you for supporting independent artists - and through us, the long and arduous relief effort ahead.

Blessings,
Amy

DEAR AMY, I HAVE A SON WHO HAS BEEN IN PRISON FOROVER THIRTY YEARS--AND,NO, HE DIDN'T KILL ANYONE. HE ROBBED BANKS. HE HAS BEEN DIAGNOSED [AFTER MANY YEARS] WITH BI-POLAR/MANIC DEPRESSIVE--LIKELY ADDICTIVE PERSONALITY. HE HEARD YOU SING "HOW MANY LIVES PER GALLON" [?] ON MPR--OR WHATEVER THE SONG WAS, AND HE WAS "BLOWN AWAY" OR WHATEVER YOU CALL IT.
HE CALLED TO TELL ME ABOUT YOU--I THINK IT WAS A "MOUNTAIN TOP" EXPERIENCE FOR HIM.
I HAVEN'T HE4ARD YOU BUT I WILL VERY SOON. I AM HEADED IN THE DIRECTION FOR BUYING YOUR CD TOMORROW. I WILLSEE THAT IT IS SAVED FOR MY SON ROBERT. HE IS IN A FEDERAL PRISON NEAR TAMPAA AND WILL BE HOME IN LESS THAN TWO YEARS. I AM PRETTY SURE YOU WILL BECOME ONE OF MY FAVORITE SINGERS, AND I KNOW YOU ARE BOB'S. I HAVE TO LOVE YOU.
YOU SURELY TOUCHED MY SON--AND THAT TOUCHES ME. I HOPE YOU WILL ALWAYS BE WELL AND HAPPY.
