The Idea . . .

Posted by Mark on December 10, 2009

And so it begins. . . or at least the blogged part.

It actually began  a few months ago when two ideas collided . . .  In the first a group of  artists, musicians, writers and activists began dreaming about creating a music project together that might do a little bit of good in our corner of humanity. It would be fun, targeted, experimental, and an outlet for creativity and challenge.  So there it was – the first idea . . .

At the same time another group of folks were meeting to discuss the incredible needs of the large homeless population in Central FL.  This group of activists with hearts for the community were looking at the major needs of our homeless neighbors and asking how they could help.  Being already involved in bringing food, clothing, warmth and friendship they decided that a great next step would be to build and activate a portable shower trailer where folks across the region could go to get clean, warm and have their clothing laundered.

The ideas collided – What if the artists could be a little part of helping the shower trailer get built by making and selling the CD?  So that’s where we’ve been at, and have been dreaming, planning and beginning work on this – We’ll keep posting on this blog from now on to keep us up to date with what’s happening and when; we’re gathering together at 3 this Saturday to outline next steps and get everything scheduled.   –

If you want to get involved in the project in any way email me at showersofgraceproj@gmail.com – we’d love to have you on board!

More to come!
