Phil Campbells band together to raise money for tornado ravaged town of Phil Campbell, Alabama.

The town of Phil Campbell, Alabama is days ahead of its rebuilding schedule after an EF5 tornado damaged or destroyed a majority of the town.

Now a group of people named Phil Campbell is hoping a YouTube video will raise more money for the town.

Video creator Phil Campbell, from England, says the group was planning on meeting in June for a Phil Campbell convention in Phil Campbell.

"One morning I woke up and I had an email from the Brooklyn organizer saying the town had been devastated. Within about 20 minutes we decided this cannot be a convention anymore we have to turn this into a relief effort," said Campbell.

The video already has close to a thousand views, but with a celebrity endorsement they're hoping that number grows.

Actor Jason Biggs, who plays a character named "Phil Campbell" in an upcoming project has joined their cause.

The group launched a website called and plans on raising funds for the town.

The members plan to be on hand to lend a hand in June at the Phil Campbell convention.

The English Phil Campbell plans on streaming his entire trip to this community online so others who can't visit can experience it as well.
