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.

Union Rescue Mission - Hope Gardens

Over on my facebook page I have posted many links on this subject.  I am now posting things here as well.

Bottom line ....  if Union Rescue Mission cannot raise $2.8M by the end of June it may be necessary to shut down Hope Gardens.  So far they have raised about $500k.

A good initial view on some fact can be seen at - http://www.urmblog.org/2010/05/24/critical-news-regarding-hope-gardens/

A new story was done by Channel 7 news.  The video can be seen here - http://abclocal.go.com/kabc/story?section=news%2Flocal%2Flos_angeles&id=7459872

There are four ways YOU can help.  Pick any one of them, any combination of them or all of them but please, do something - http://www.urmblog.org/critical-news/

Become a fan of the URM fan page on facebook if you are on facebook.  Pass the link here to everybody on facebook you know.  For each fan on the URM fan page there will be $1 donated to URM.  It costs nothing and takes a few seconds.  -  http://www.facebook.com/#!/note.php?note_id=394626408250&id=12784656483&ref=mf
