John Mayer fans banding together to raise money for NCIRE

Taylor Hamilton Fund

We just wanted to provide everyone with a quick update on the wristbands sold to benefit Taylor Hamilton. We officially sold out the remaining 2010 Summer Tour wristbands and all orders are being shipped this week.

We were able to raise $400.00 for the Taylor Hamilton Fund, which is absolutly amazing for something that was thrown together at the last minute. You guys seriously rock for that… WOW!

We know its been said a thousand times, but John’s fans really have the biggest hearts. So again, a big THANK YOU to everyone who purcahse a wristband and donated. It means a lot.

Summer 2010 Wristbands Shipment (Taylor Hamilton Fund)

Just a quick note to say that the wristbands are being shipped TODAY and hopefully you’ll have yours by the end of the week (international may take a bit longer).  Due to my work schedule, a day with a fever, and then that crazy southern snow, last week was a wash.  THANK YOU so much for your patience and understanding with our one-man operation shipping company!

Summer 2010 Wristbands sale—all proceeds to be donated to the Taylor Hamilton Fund

Recently, the John Mayer fan community lost an online “superfan”. 16-year-old Taylor Hamilton passed away on January 10, 2014. We didn’t know Taylor personally, but met her in passing at Zane Carney’s solo show in Atlanta this summer. She was so excited when Zane dedicated a song to her and talked to her from the stage about high school (math class, I believe). We were struck by how cute and innocent she seemed, and how that was probably the best day of her life to date. To hear of her passing has really hit us hard, and we didn’t even know her. We can’t imagine what her close friends and family must be going through.

Taylor’s passing has reminded us that things aren’t always as they seem—that you can never know what someone is dealing with inside. This is something we hear about regularly in our work with VHIP and JM Wristbands. Although we mainly deal with military veterans, Taylor’s passing has been a reminder that mental health issues can affect absolutely anyone.

Let Taylor’s story be a reminder that everyone you encounter is fighting some sort of battle. Be kind. Be compassionate. We are all on the same side. If you are reading this, you are probably a fan of John Mayer as well—so let’s use Taylor’s story as a reminder to keep each other where the light is.

In Taylor’s memory, we have decided to reopen our online shop to sell the remaining JM Wristbands from the summer 2010 tour, with all proceeds going to the Taylor Hamilton Fund. These white wristbands glow in the dark, and are debossed with “A simple little kind of free”. We are asking for a donation of $5.00 per wristband, but feel free to donate whatever you would like. Order or donate here.

Taylor’s obituary can be found here. Our thoughts and prayers are with her friends and family. Rest in peace, sweet girl.

Love,

Brenda, Sue, and Kristy
