Coldplay Helps Out Fans With Money
Think that guys in "Coldplay" are just too busy with whatever they have going to not help out a fan? Think again. The guys in Coldplay are putting their money where their mouth is. Earlier this month frontman Chris Martin dedicated the song "Fix You" to ALS sufferer Jody Duff during one of the band's concerts in London. And now the "Daily Mirror" says they've donated ten-thousand pounds, or nearly 17-thousand dollars, to Duff's Just Giving fundraising page. Coldplay found out about Duff's campaign to raise money for research into ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease, after a friend wrote the band a letter. They invited Duff to their gig at the Royal Albert Hall, and then brought him backstage to hang out. Martin also told the thousands of Coldplay fans in attendance, quote, "We just want to send him, from us and from all of you, as much love as we possibly can."
