During the 2011 CMT Music Awards, Keifer Thompson, half of the duo Thompson Square, who grew up right outside Joplin, MO, wanted to show his support for the victims of recent tornados. He did so by wearing a black tee-shirt with white lettering simply saying, “Joplin, MO.” While backstage at the awards show, Kiefer ran into the Gilbert family from Joplin, MO. They shared their personal story of loss during the storms with Keifer, and thanked him for spreading awareness.
The tee-shirt worn by Keifer Thompson is now available for purchase with all proceeds being donated to the Joplin Red Cross to assist in relief efforts. Fans and supporters can visit Thompson Square’s website at www.thompsonsquare.com to order.
