    This all started at the red light on Esplanade and Claiborne. I saw a man doing a #2 and using a bag to wipe himself. I was frozen. We buy tissue and toiletries in bulk and honestly take having necessities for granted. There are well over 1200 homeless people in New Orleans. Some are suffering from depression and mental illness. Others have simply run out of options.
    I have never seen so many homeless people in this small city in my life. January 9th help me to make a small change to jumpstart a continuous help effort.
    I'm asking when you make a trip to the grocery or dollar tree if you would be so kind to pick up an item that someone can use. @sess45 of @nuthinbutfirerecords and @peachesrecords have been kind enough you allow their locations as drop off points. And the items assembly will be January 9th 11-2pm at the Treme center
    Nothing is too small. Everything is helpful and appreciated. I can't imagine not having toilet paper or a toothbrush soap sanitary napkins on top of not having a roof over my head. There but for Gods grace go us ALL. Thank you for your compassion and support 💜

As a disclaimer, this podcast is 2 parts and will be released in 2 consecutive weeks! Stay tuned....
