Darryl and songwriting pal Wynn Varble recorded “The Fishin’ Hole,” better known as “The Andy Griffith Show” theme song, and the song is being offered through a text-to-give campaign to raise money for relief efforts caused by wave of natural disasters that impacted numerous states in 2011.
Fans can text the word FISH to 50555, which allows a ten dollar donation to be added to the user’s phone bill. As a thank you gift, a link to a free ringtone of the song is sent to the donor’s phone. These funds are received by the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Foundation, and the net proceeds are then used to help restore levees, replace equipment lost or damaged in the disasters and re-stock fish in waters affected by flooding, tornadoes, drought and more. Donations from other parts of the country are distributed back to the state of origin’s wildlife agency.
