Helping a friend in need

Got a call from Brad Vanderburg tonight and he informed me that they’ve just about settled on a new lead singer for their band, Shatter Me.

The young man, Donavon, just called Brad to inform him that one of his dear friends, Taylor was in a bad car accident over the weekend and is now in the hospital with severe brain injury.

Brad said things don’t look good for Taylor.

The Vanderburg’s are hoping to pool some money together to help Taylor’s family in this time of crisis. If you’re interested in helping, please click the button below and we’ll get the funds to the Vanderburgs ASAP. (As a note, the donation will likely show Refugee on the PayPal page)

UPDATE :: Talked to Brad this morning, he said Taylor is still in a coma and there’s no evidence of change. He will be stopping by the hospital later this morning to see him and meet with the family.

Thanks in advance!
