Reaching out to others about my experiences in and around New Orleans. I've been volunteering with residents of New Orleans since April 2006, and falling in love with the city and its people since our move to Baton Rouge in 2005.

Whole Foods 5% Day for Threadhead Records
On October 12, I did a bit of my Whole Foods shopping on their 5% Day for Threadhead Records . It was a nice surprise to have Matt Perrine, Alex McMurray, Debbie Davis and Arsene Delay, talented musicians from New Orleans, performing live in support of the Nine Lives - The Musical project. I enjoyed their music, and especially appreciated being able to chat with them, too. Visit http://www.threadheadrecords.com/ to learn more about these artists and the projects supported by Threadhead Records.
That following Friday, Whole Foods shared the following good news:
"DRUM ROLL...Thanks to you, we're pleased to share that the Louisiana stores raised more than $15,100 for the Threadhead Records Foundation 5% Day!!! With these funds, the Foundation will be able to finish the Nine Lives musical and employ more than 100 Louisiana musicians! WOOT!"
Be sure to check out "Nine Lives - A Musical Adaptation" by Paul Sanchez and Colman DeKay. Here's a song from the first volume of songs.
