A Good Cause

I have made several references in previous posts to my friend David LaMotte, a wonderful singer/songwriter from the Asheville, NC area. I just returned from one of his concerts and was reminded of one of his many projects. David and his wife Deana spent their honeymoon in Guatamala where they visited several schools. One of the schools had several glaring needs....water run from the well to the restrooms, a place to prepare lunch for the kids and a few other things. The cost to build the lunch facility and run the water line was about $1000.00us. David returned home and began telling his audiences about the situation. He collected the needed funds in only three shows. That was the beginning of PEG Partners, a grass roots organization which now provides funds for several schools in the country.

I invite you to take a look at the PEG Partners website and be sure to watch the video. Contribute if you feel like it, but if you don't, just soak in the inspiration. Enjoy.
