Just in case you don't already know, we are trying to make a film about the event called: An Urban Conflux. Right now, any contributions we receive will help move this project forward. It's an important story to tell about how Alaskan musicians and businesses collaborated to throw a surprise party for the city of Anchorage. Your donation is tax deductible.

Live Music Series - Molly Towner and friends

Bean's Cafe, 1101 E 3rd Ave, Anchorage, Alaska, US

Jan 16th begins the Anchorage Music Co-op's first run at bringing musician's and homeless together to support each other. If you have a moment over the next 7 weeks, stop by Beans Cafe and listen to some music. Grab something you no longer need and bring it. Yesterday I watched clients line up to get what they need. One woman asked for a scarf. Another man asked for some socks. They asked for candy and granola bars that they could eat later. I know at the moment Bean's is low on Ibuprophen, Tylenol and vitamins. A little effort on our part means a lot to these folks.
