Each month we feature a new charity to share with our readers in hopes that they might donate to or at least spread the word to others for awareness. For November we decided to profile The New Orleans Musician’s Relief Fund.
Each year when some distant family members of mine have Christmas, they don’t exchange gifts. They save that for birthdays and instead each donate to a charity and then talk about which one they donated to. One year my aunt was having trouble deciding on a charity to pick and I chose The New Orleans Musician’s Relief Fund as I’m a music fanatic and New Orleans holds a special place in my heart from past visits.
Everyone and their third cousin is aware of how important music is to New Orleans. Many of those old musicians down there never really had benefits or big savings accounts; they just entertained and got by. Formed after Hurricane Katrina in 2005, NOMRF was designed to help get these musicians back on their feet to a solid lifestyle again. As you can see from this page, this charity has a lot of success stories and it goes a little deeper than just helping the musicians. For example, those musicians have kids also and kids need toys!
Just because Hurricane Katrina has passed and New Orleans is restoring itself as a community, that doesn’t mean that everyone is fine and doesn’t still need help. Please help out this charity by visiting this page!
