Brian's Accident Recovery Fund

While Brian was on his return trip to California, days after performing the final show of his independent "Kindness Of Strangers Solo Acoustic Tour" (which has taken his music across the country over the past 13 months), he lost control of our little Honda and hit the center divider on the Will Rodgers turnpike from Tulsa to Oklahoma City.  The day before the trip we had brand new tires put on the car and replaced a CV boot which seemed to unfortunately cause the car to pull to the left. Brian's first hand account of the accident is as follows:  "I was used to the way the car handled prior to getting it repaired and as a result, while I was reaching for a bottle of water that had fallen below the passenger seat, the car pulled hard to the left and before I knew it, hit the center divider at 70MPH (the speed limit). I caught air and flipped, landing on the roof and sliding across two lanes, finally grinding to a stop in a ditch. There was crumpled metal and broken glass all around me. I managed to climb out from under the wreckage with some scrapes and minor cuts, but otherwise unscathed. By all accounts I should be in a coma, or seriously injured but somehow I'm not. I'm alive and only enduring some pain in my back, neck and knee (now that the adrenaline has worn off). I lost my glasses (they must've flew off of my face while in zero G) and of course the Kindness of Strangers tour vehicle (and my only form of transportation) is totaled." To recover the costs to get Brian airfare back to the west coast (where he has a job working crew at The Dickens Christmas Fair in San Francisco) and maybe even replace his iconic round wire rimmed glasses, we are setting up this Go Fund Me page.  Another way to show support for Brian is to make a donation to his Kindness of Strangers Tour, via paypal at http://briantravis.com or order a CD on the "STORE" page of his website. Sales of his music directly support his efforts in this difficult time. Many thanks and much respect to all. The most important thing for folks to know in all of this is that Brian is alive and safe, and we are grateful for any help.
