I got this info passed along to me from Anita. Even though David Cook hasn't exploited this situation with his brother, I am aware of it, so I'm posting the info here in case anyone is interested.
I wanted to let you know about a grass-root group that is helping to bring Adam back for David Cook’s appearance in the finale! I’ve been following it for a while, and have called the bank in Terre Haute to be sure it’s legit.
Instead of mailing a donation, I used my PayPal account, with the payee being firstname.lastname@example.org
As many of you have said, I’m not a fan of just David or David (!), but of both of them. To me, I’m not donating a few bucks to a “TV star” but to a family and a big brother who’s fighting the battle of and for his life. http://www.tribstar.com/archivesearch/local_story_108235605.html If something as simple as a visit to LA can give Adam’s 2 little kids their Daddy for a while longer, I’m in!
