Callum Robbins Benefit CD…

Got this email last night so I thought I would share. It is in regards to that cute baby boy you see to your left.

Dear Will,

I’m sending this email to inform you that For Callum, a 2CD compilation to benefit Callum Robbins, will be available beginning tomorrow, 3/13/07, through Catlick Records ( for $15.00 + $2.00 shipping.

The Cultural Society, Catlick Records, & Letterbox have compiled this collection of songs to raise money for Callum Robbins’ care fund. Callum, who turned 1 in January, has been diagnosed with a genetic motor neuron disease called Type 1 SMA, or Spinal Muscular Atrophy. Your donation helps ensure that Janet Morgan (Channels/Shonben) & J. Robbins (Jawbox/Burning Airlines/Channels) have sufficient resources to continue their search for effective, lasting treatment. Though our energies here are focused on the plight of our friends, it should be noted that a cure for Callum could also mean a cure for the other thousands of babies who suffer from SMA.

For more information about Type 1 SMA & Callum, please visit Callum’s blog ( or DeSoto Records ( You’ll find links at these sites to various SMA organizations. For more information about For Callum, please visit The Cultural Society ( or Catlick Records (

If you’d like to donate beyond your purchase of For Callum, you can do so at Callum’s blog, The Cultural Society, or DeSoto Records.

In the event that you have a blog, website, or similar apparatus for spreading the word, I ask that you post mention of our efforts & the availability of For Callum. Our aim is to raise as much money for Janet, J., & Callum as possible. All proceeds will go directly to Callum’s care fund.

If you have any questions, feel free to drop me a line.
