Burlington, VT television station WCAX has posted an interview with Page about Phish's history of charitable giving. The piece covers Phish's philanthropic history from Ben & Jerry's Phish Food and the WaterWheel Foundation to the Essex Irene Relief Benefit show, as well as touching on the generosity of the fan base and the state of Phish today. Says Page, "Having more fun than ever. I really am." You can read the story and see the video from the piece here.
If you liked this blog post, one way you could "like" it is to make a donation to The Mockingbird Foundation, the sponsor of Phish.net. Support music education for children, and you just might change the world.

Phish.net is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.
This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
The Mockingbird Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by Phish fans in 1996 to generate charitable proceeds from the Phish community.
And since we're entirely volunteer – with no office, salaries, or paid staff – administrative costs are less than 2% of revenues! So far, we've distributed over $1,000,000 to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
