FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

March 2, 2012

 

Joplin, MO has experienced more loss than can be summed up in a few short paragraphs. Lives, homes, businesses have been lost. Ways of life forever shifted. They are good folks in that part of the country, and they deserve a hand. Good, hard working Americans; many of them have lost themselves.

 

Rebuild Joplin will raise funds that will go directly to Joplin-area music programs, including the many school programs that lost everything. Musical artist Luke Mitchem is from Nevada, MO, and started the Rebuild Joplin campaign to bring music back to life for a people who need it to help them make it through trying and desperate times.

 

There are two ways to contribute to the Rebuild Joplin campaign: Purchase the official Rebuild Joplin t shirt at http://www.lukemitchem.com, or see Luke perform on at one of his upcoming Rebuild Joplin tour dates (listed below).
