Weekend Recap: Music, Caring and Goodness

Sue and I had are just winding down from our weekend road trip which started in Chicago, then Indianapolis, and ended in Springfield.   
We had the pleasure of volunteering with some really excellent people this weekend. 
In Chicago we had a volunteer, Candace, who was volunteering in the memory of her friend who was injured in Iraq and suffered from PTS.  Hearing her tell his story brought me to tears.  To make the long story short, he joined the military because he had no where else to go, he got injured in combat, and was even awarded a purple heart. Unfortunately , he just couldn’t cope with the effects of war, and took his own life.  
Candace was fantastic.  She actually had such a great time, and was so passionate about what we were doing that she came back and helped us volunteer in Springfield. It was pretty amazing.   
In Indianapolis we were able to meet up with a friend, his wife and their 10 year old daughter Isabelle. They volunteered and Isabelle was THE GREATEST!  Some of you may have seen Isabelle’s picture on the JohnMayer.com official twitter. Her favorite song is Neon and she was certain he wouldn’t play it… But he did! She really was the happiest 10 year old ever!
In Springfield we had a volunteer who was an injured veteran. She was so amazing. Her story was heartbreaking and unfortunately so common to veterans returning home.  She told the group of volunteers a little bit about her time in the Marines and the Army (that’s right, BOTH) and also gave us some really shocking facts.  She said that Veterans DON’T have healthcare. Like most of us who have jobs and are offered healthcare benefits, they do not have that option. If they get sick they can’t just go to the VA as there are not enough doctors and without private healthcare, most cant afford to see a regular doctor. She was injured in combat and still has to wait to get the full treatment she needs from the VA. It’s just unreal. We really felt honored to have her with us. 
To sum things up, John spoke a lot on stage this weekend about seeing so much good in his fans. There is no truer statement and we are still amazed at the opportunity to experience this first hand. 
One last thing, after talking to Candace about her friend, she asked that we never give up on this cause.
Done.

Great quote from John Mayer in the article!

Shipping

Hello All,

We have a few things to share„,

First, if you had an outstanding order or emailed us recently about an order - those items all shipped today, So thanks again to everyone for waiting! 

Second, we have no stock.All outstanding orders were shipped, and our remaining stock went with it (we will tell you later where it went). So, if something happens and you don’t get your item this time around, we cant reship.  If on the off chance this happens, email us and we will work something out.   

Lastly, we don’t know if anyone noticed but we no longer have the shop page on the website.  This doesn’t mean we aren’t going to sell wristbands anymore, but it does mean some things are changing.  We really cant wait to tell you all about it, because its a good thing for everyone, especially NCIRE! Trust us, its AWESOME!

We hope everyone saw out sneak peek, and are just as excited as we are about it.  As soon as we can share more about what we are up too, we will! So hang tight, cool things are happening…we promise!!
