I thought I would refresh everyone's memory as to where the proceeds of the sale of Volume II are going to go. Here are the three organizations who will benefit from the sales. If you want to know more about them, please google them to get to their main website. I know from experience MusiCares does what it says it does. The following is from the copy that will appear in the book:


MusiCares


MusiCares was established by the Recording
Academy in 1989 to ensure that music people
have a place to turn in times of need. Its
primary purpose is to focus the resources and
attention of the music industry on human service
issues which directly impact the health and
welfare of the music community. People must
never be left in the gutter, never be without
needed hospitalization or medicine or the basics
of human dignity.

Since 1989, MusiCares Emergency Financial
Assistance Program has been helping music
people across the country cope with financial
hardships and crises in a confidential and
caring approach that allows those in need to
seek help with dignity and confidence.

If you'd like to support this cause, please
send donations to:

MusiCares Foundation
156 W. 56th St. Ste. 1701
New York, NY 10019


Music Maker

Music Maker Relief Foundation, Inc. is a non-
profit organization dedicated to helping the true
pioneers and forgotten heroes of Southern
musical traditions gain recognition and meet
their day to day needs. Today, many such
musicians are living in extreme poverty and
need food, shelter, medical care and other aid.
Music Maker's assistance programs help improve
the quality of the recipients' lives.

If you'd like to support this cause, please send your
donations to:

Music Maker Relief Foundation
Eno Valley Station
PO Box 72222
Durham, NC 27722-2222


The HART Fund

In 2001, the Blues Foundation established the
HART fund to provide assistance to blues
musicians in times of great financial need due to
medical emergencies. Donations to the HART
fund are dedicated 100% to artist relief efforts.

If you'd like to support this cause, please send your
donations to:
The Blues Foundation
49 Union Avenue
Memphis, TN 38103-2492

And speaking of love....how could I let that recipe down? Here is the introduction to the book:




"When the power of love overcomes the love of power
the world will know peace."
Jimi Hendrix


The Allman Brothers Band Friends & Family is a
group of people who found each other through
their love of music not just Allman Brothers
music, but styles as unique and varied as the
people themselves.

Volume I of Come On In My Kitchen, compiled
by the ABB Friends & Family, was presented to
the Rose Hill Foundation to be used as a fund-
raiser for the care and upkeep of the final resting
place of Duane Allman and Berry Oakley, two
founding members of the Alllman Brothers Band.

Come On In My Kitchen Volume II has been
compiled to honor the living a way to
repay, in some small measure, people whose
gift of music has helped so many, yet who now
find themselves in need. Proceeds from this
book are being donated to MusiCares, Music
Maker and HART, organizations dedicated to
providing aid and support necessary to keep the
music alive.

'Without music, life would be a mistake."
Friedrich Nietzsche

Just sent my check in yesterday before knowing anything about foundations involved. Makes me feel even better now after seeing this post. I've bought many cd's and dvd's from Music Maker. I'm glad to see some money going to the foundations as well.

Oh Ann! This is one of my all-time favorite Hendrix quotes! Love the intro you've penned - thanks so much!

I've always liked this quote, too:

" Friends are angels who lift us to our feet when our wings have trouble remembering how to fly".

Thanks for helping us all to fly a little through your vision and guidance which helped us get this cookbook together and do some collective good.

These are really good causes everyone. I hope those of you who haven't placed your cookbook order will consider doing so to help support the organizations!
