Putting heads together

Kim and I were down at the local open mic night at the waterfront coffee haunt, chatting with mutual pal Kelsey about the possibility of arranging a short-notice benefit for the hurricane victims in New Orleans. We’ll keep you all posted on progress, but the hope is to throw a cajun-style jazz/blues bash (complete with a bit of celeb pull, gaudy decorations, and miles of ‘earnable’ beads) to get those neighbourhood pockets to open wide for the sadness to the South. With school about to start, the timing’s ripe to galvanize communities on the micro level and put our hearts first!

Got any personal stories to share from the Big Easy? Aid agencies to recommend? Special charity events to evangelize? Post ’em here, kids…the space is always here for everyone.
