TJS Cause of the Month: Music Maker Relief Foundation

In May, I was asking you to support Bloggers for a Cure. That seemed like such a good idea that I’ve decided to launch a regular feature, The Jazz Session Cause of the Month. This month, it’s:

Music Maker Relief Foundation

Music Maker Relief Foundation, Inc. helps the true pioneers and forgotten heroes of Southern music gain recognition and meet their day-to-day needs. They present these musical traditions to the world so American culture will flourish and be preserved for future generations. Their criteria for recipients are that they be rooted in a Southern musical tradition, be 55 years or older and have an annual income of less than $18,000. Music Maker Relief Foundation, Inc. is a tax exempt, public charity under IRS code 501(c)3.

Please help these folks do what they do by visiting their Web site. Thanks.
