Absurd and absolutely heartwarming. I’m not sure how else to describe this story which appeared in the New York Times about a bunch of guys named Phil Campbell who have raised nearly $35,000 to help a town with which they share a name: Phil Campbell, Alabama.
I appreciate their sense of humor and solidarity, but above all I love that these Phil Campbells, who don’t actually have any real ties to Alabama or each other except for the coincidence of their shared name, committed their time to rebuilding this small town after it was devastated by a tornado. Sometimes a little silliness goes a long way.
Thank you, and be kind.
