I don’t know what it is but every time I read about this album it makes me tear up. It’s just so special and so Philly. Not to mention it’s more a good cause AND it’s an amazing album. Before we talk money, let’s reminisce a bit.

Here is the story from the Inquirer:

Are you surprised how much money the album raised? I’m not. It’s the Eagles! Antonio Valdés laughed when he was told last year that the Eagles players hoped their Christmas album would raise $30,000. The players simply wanted their vinyl record — which they feared might flop — to support a toy drive in the city, which is how they connected with Valdés.

“I was like ‘You do know you’re the Eagles, right? Right? This isn’t going to work out the way you think it is,’” said Valdés, the executive director of Children’s Crisis Treatment Center.
