Thompson Square Sells Shirts for Joplin Red Cross

Thompson Square.

Mr. and Mrs. Thompson, better known as country music’s hot little duo, Thompson Square, are selling the same t-shirts that Keifer Thompson wore for their CMT Awards performance last week. A black t-shirt saying “Joplin, MO” in white lettering is for sale on the Thompson Square website with all proceeds going to the Joplin Red Cross for tornado relief efforts in the county.

The husband-and-wife duo grew up just outside Joplin. This is their way of showing support for their home-town community in this difficult time.

The Thompsons met the Gilbert family backstage at the CMT Awards before the Sugarland performance. The Gilbert family survived the tornado and were recently reunited. It was their personal story that inspired the duo to raise funds for Joplin through merchandise sales.

You can purchase the shirt from the Thompson Square official website.
