Help me help Los Angeles!

Hello, all. Yes, times are slow here, musically, and yes, there will be more music to offer later this week. Good things, too. Very good things. In the meantime, if you have a spare moment and a spare dollar (or many - many are better than one), I'd be super, super, super happy if you stopped off at this page I've created in order to collect donations for the Los Angeles Regional Foodbank.

If you're not a resident of Los Angeles, you can certainly put in a donation despite the fact. For some perspective, there are approximately 3.7 million people in Los Angeles, and an estimated 80,000 homeless in Los Angeles on any given night. Not counting those 80,000, consider the number of those who are housed and working or unemployed, simultaneously of a low enough income to require assistance. This is where organizations like the L.A. Regional Foodbank come in. I'm particularly proud to say that they redistribute perishable food through their Rapid Food Distribution and Extra Helpings programs, about which you can read up on here.

Donations can be made here. I've set a goal of $500, but would be thrilled to see that amount exceeded.
