2018 is a strange time to be alive. Donald Trump is President, Nazis show up at Phish concerts, and the Buffalo Bills played a football game in January. It is also a tough time to be alive for a lot of people out there. This is why we here at the Phunion decided to add to the strangeness of this bizarre year and actually do something that’s not offensive to jamband fans and/or D-list celebrities. We are proud to announce the Curveball for Cleveland Clinic Children Campaign.
Where many of our jokes fail (who remembers Phunion Roast II?), we somehow have over 10,000 #RealFans on Twitter and Facebook (shout out to the 1,200 people who follow us on Instagram). Apparently some of our jokes must be halfway decent for us to have organically grown to those numbers over the past few years. At risk of sounding cliché, we are truly blessed to get giggles form many of you on a daily basis. This is why we are asking for your help to bring some much-needed smiles to some non jamband fans as our community gears up for the latest greatest Phish festival.
You don’t need us to explain how difficult it is to have or be a young child who is sick; it’s far more depressing than Velvet Sea from Coventry. Where we may poke fun at some of the cheesy lyrics in 3.0 Phish classics like More and Soul Planet, the fact is many can use some love and light and we wanna see you help some sick kids on a Soul Planet.
The clinic has set up an Amazon page with hundreds of books, toys, DVD’s, art supplies etc. If you look closely, some of the requested items have multiple quantities requested so if you want to buy 46 Munchkin Twisty Figure 8 Teeter’s you absolutely can. With dozens of items under $10 you can make a difference and still be able to afford a $14 beer at Curveball. If you are an Amazon Prime member shipping is free so you have NO excuse not to help these young children who are struggling.

Per the request of the clinic, please include your name and address as part of the note with your present. Per request of us, please let them know this present is with love and light from the Phish community.
Again, we thank you for allowing us to be the obnoxious and offensive jack asses who still brag about being voted class clown Senior Year in High School. Let’s hope we cover the Cleveland Clinic Children with love and Amazon Prime packages the same way Phish fans cover concert venues with glowsticks.
