Brett Hales and David Archuleta

Last year during American Idol, David Archuleta needed an outside support person to combat the false rumors that were being reported about him and his family. Brett Hales became that supporter and family spokesperson and the David fan community learned to love and respect him a great deal. His good humor, generosity, kindness and positive outlook on life, despite challenging physical problems, became an inspiration to many.

Brett has had MS since 20004 and lives in Utah, a state which has one of the highest incidence rates of Multiple Sclerosis in the nation. The CRUSH MS Cause has been created to help raise money for the Utah MS Society in particular and MS in general.

Each year the Utah MS Society provides a multitude of direct services to clients: financial assistance, care management, physical health and wellness assistance, education and many others. Additionally, the Chapter invests hundreds of thousands of dollars (more than $650,000 in 2008) in research to find cures to treat, prevent and end Multiple Sclerosis. They were also able to make a commitment to the MS Society's Promise 2010 Research Campaign. The Utah Chapter is very proud of the research talent in the state which has resulted in over $1.5 million of National MS Society grants currently being awarded to Utah researchers. Their 'Bike MS' and 'Walk MS' events also raise millions for research.

David has made it very clear through his words, his actions and his music that his goal is to support and improve the human condition, to make a real difference in people's lives. He has touched the hearts of millions with his music and with his character. His fans are incredibly generous, as evidenced by the significant amounts of money that have already been raised in David's name to support important causes. The CRUSH MS Cause just happens to hit a bit closer to his home and his heart.

Whether you are a David fan, a friend of Brett and his beautiful family or whether you just know and love someone with MS, we are hopeful that you will be responsive to this request in any way that you can. You will receive a CRUSH MS wristband, 'David vs. Goliath', in honor of Brett Hales as a Thank you gift for your donation.
*Please allow 3 -5 weeks for wristband delivery*

We continue to hear about generous donations and efforts nationwide to support the Crush MS movement.

$10,000: Cyprus Credit Union

$4, 717: Tribute page includes donations and wristband sales from concerts

$830: Facebook Cause page went to Friends of MS first

$807.50: First Quilt Auction, donated to NMSS through MissionFish

$313: Crush MS with Twitter Campaign

$250: Private Donation

Total: $16, 917.50

This is amazing! Thank you so much!

David received a hard copy update on Crush MS this summer that included many of your tributes and pictures of you wearing the wristbands. David has said that a gift to charity in his name is the best gift you can give him. He and Brett are very appreciative of your continued support.

On September 20 we will auction off two more quilts that David has signed. (See photo album) Check back here and on David fansites for a fun tribute video on that day to kick off the next phase of fundraising.
