Jamie, a David Cook fan just dropped me an email to tell me about an ongoing fan-organized fund raising project that benefits both the American Brain Tumor Association, and a special fund set up to help Adam and his family.
Here’s the deal. For $12, you can purchase a pretty purple bracelet printed with the words “David Cook Rocks.” Proceeds of the bracelet sale are split between the ABTA and the Cook family.
As many of you know, David’s brother Adam has been battling brain cancer for over a decade. The AC initials on David’s guitar is a tribute to his brother, who has spent the last few years fighting a very tough battle against the illness.
The project initially started as a way to raise funds to help send Adam Cook back to LA to see David compete in the Idol finale. (Adam attended the finale, sitting in the balcony away from the press and the cameras.) Now that the competition is over, the fund raiser continues.
