Small Acts of Kindness

I won't waste any words with regard to last week's tsunami in Southeast Asia as now is the time to act. Give whatever you can- blood, money, time and services. But do something. Contrary to one editorial I read about the tragedy in the Sun-Times today, we still live in the one nation recognized as the lone remaining superpower, and as such we have an obigation to the rest of the world to help in times of need

I received this from work this evening. If you can please show up and give what you can.

When: Sunday, January 9th, 2 p.m.-10 p.m. .

Where: HotHouse, 31 E. Balbo Ave., (312) 362-9707,

Line-up: Frank Orrall (of Poi Dog Pondering); members of Funkadesi; Sam Prekop (of The Sea and Cake); Kalyan Pathak & Jazzmata; The Goran Ivanovic Group; The Yoko-Tatsu Asian Experience;DJ Warp with Adeesh Sathaye of San Fransisco’s Dhamaal, Hicham Chami’s Trio Mosaic, Raiz Viva with Alexey Lanza, the Pintig Cultural Group, Robert Karimi, Mary Anne Mohanraj, Raul Fernandez and Mitote, Michigan Avenue Cantori, Dance 2XS, and Gingarte Capoeira. Additional Artists TBA.

Goal: To raise $100,000 in January for organizations aiding victims of the tsunami. 100 percent of the proceeds from the events will go to the relief organizations.

Cost: A $25 donation is suggested, although we'll take what we can get.

We're also planning a January 26th concert with Funkadesi to aid the relief organizations. So if you can show up and support please do.
