A little more information

The two main activities in my life: Helping the hungry in the late hours of the night and helping guitar players sound better one amp at a time.

I always try to remember that in order to do good one has to take action and actually do something.

I was born and raised in Los Angeles. I have watched the city and Southern California change for well over half a century.

Just a quick post from the field. An audio clip and a bit more information

Thanks to the David at The Courtland Hotel on Wall Street across from the police station for the use of a computer. The Courtland is one of the SRO hotels in a row on the street.

Feel free to click on the link below.  It is an audio file.


This is part of my "sounds of the city" compilation.

Below are a few shots from last month along Wall Street across from the Police Station. 




5 Ways To Help from Los Angeles Mission on Vimeo.

From time to time I will post information and links to some of the other great organizations in Los Angeles who are helping the homeless and hungry residents of Los Angeles. 

I focus a lot on Union Rescue Misson in many of my posts but there are many great organizations in Los Angeles that deserve mention as well. All these folks work together in a common goal.

Some of you reading my blog have donated or contributed directly to me so I can bring food items and snacks to the streets in the evenings to the folks that sleep on the street.  I am not a licensed charity and there are people that look for a tax deduction for their contribution.  If you wish to contribute to a  licensed organization I will list some of them on this blog from time to time.
