TJS Cause of the Month: Musicians’ Village

The tragedy in New Orleans was a turning point in my life, even though I’ve never been there. For me, it was the single most glaring example of what’s wrong with our government and right with our nation. I’ve been featuring New Orleans charities — particularly those that deal with cultural restoration — in my Cause of the Month for quite a while now. I’m proud to announce the newest addition:

Musicians’ Village was conceived by New Orleans natives (and jazz musicians) Harry Connick, Jr. and Branford Marsalis. Musicians’ Village will provide a home for both the artists who have defined the city’s culture and the sounds that have shaped the musical vernacular of the world.

Please visit them today and give whatever you can afford. Thank you.
