Christofer Drew of Never Shout Never grew up and currently resides in Joplin, MO, which was recently devastated by tornados. While Drew and his family were not harmed by the devastating tornados last week, many of his friends and band members were greatly affected.
"Joplin is my home. It is the place where I find comfort and rest. The tornado that hit our community was not only devastating to the city's prosperity, but also the lives of the victims," Christofer shared in a statement. "My greatest hope is that after the cameras leave, we will not be forgotten. I love this city and plan to stand by its side until it is completely restored and livable. We are all encouraged by the help we've received. Thank you everyone."
To help raise money for his hometown, Christofer has put together a campaign with the United Way and hopes to raise 1 Million dollars for Joplin:
Text "JOMO" to 50555 to donate $10 to the immediate and long-term relief of Joplon, MO.
To increase awareness, Christofer went around Joplin this past weekend with his video camera and edited together a montage of the destruction. The video can be below and features the never before heard Never Shout Never song "Time Travel."
Next week, Never Shout Never will have a new track available for sale with all proceeds going towards Joplin relief.
