#7 On the road
with James Taylor and Jackson Browne!
Hello Guacamole Fund Friends!
Jackson Browne & James Taylor are back on the road, and we will introduce you to the non-profit organizations we have coordinated to be information tabling at each stop, but first…
Have we told you lately that we love you? We’ve just completed granting out the proceeds from Guacamole Fund Benefit Tickets, from Jackson & James’ first leg of the tour, along with Jackson’s band tour! Great organizations working for social & environmental justice across the country have benefited, and we are deeply grateful to all of you who bought the benefit tickets that funded these grants. Thank you so much for your generosity and conscience… you are enabling good work in the fields of safe energy, arts & music, environmental issues, and more! -- Check our website soon for a list of the grantee organizations!
And now, join us “on the road” with the non-profits hosting information tables at each of the new Jackson/James tour stops….
On October 16th, we are in New Orleans, and we have two groups tabling…

Second Harvest Food Bank's mission is to lead the fight against hunger in South Louisiana. Second Harvest serves 23 parishes (aka counties), with a mission that has grown over four decades to provide 50 million meals annually to hundreds of thousands of people. One in five individuals and one in four children are at risk for hunger in South Louisiana. Second Harvest has responded over the last eighteen months to the COVID-19 crisis, four hurricanes, and the everyday disaster of hunger. Every $1 donation provides 4 meals to a child, family, or senior facing hunger. www.no-hunger.org
Also, Jackson and James will be donating proceeds from the New Orleans concert to hurricane relief!
Next stops, October 17th in Houston, and October 19th in Fort Worth, TX…
SEED Coalition is heading up the No Nuclear Waste campaign, fighting to prevent an above-ground "interim storage" dump of the most deadly nuclear reactor waste from around the country. Transportation of the waste would put people, businesses, wildlife and our environment at risk across the country. We've worked with allies to pass city and county resolutions and to get 64 Legislators to write to the NRC to oppose the dangerous plans. Check out more details of their multi-faceted work at: www.seedcoalition.org
And once again, thank you Guacamole Fund supporters for playing a part in all of this good work. If you’re going to one of these shows, stop by the information tables and ask what you can do!
We love you,
Tom, Paula, Jeffrey and Diane
