Give A Little Bit



Please read the full description below of this special fundraising campaign for the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank, but first and foremost, here is the link that takes you to that organization's specific page to donate!  Go to: 
We're all in a critical time of our lives right now dealing with COVID-19, and a lot of people out there need help.  And so this is THE time for me to beg you, beseech you, and enlist you.  Could you lend me a shout-out, and a share, through your email and social media this morning to help me publicize my music-related campaign to feed the hungry?  
I am working with the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank on a special ONE-WEEK campaign that began this past Mon Sept 21, and that ONLY runs through Sun Sept 27.  Our goal here is to raise much needed funds in order to help feed our region's families in need.  The campaign is being "presented" by my music website, and it is called Tunes for Tables.
Besides your own donation (of $25 or more) to this Tunes for Tables fundraising campaign, I would also ask you to be one of my "super spreaders" for the cause--i.e., to take the specific information and share it with all of YOUR contacts on Facebook, Twitter, etc.
Thank you in advance for your donation and for your help in spreading the word!  ALL DETAILS ARE BELOW...
  • CAMPAIGN NAME: Tunes for Tables
  • CAMPAIGN TIMEFRAME: It is running RIGHT NOW, but only through 11:59pm on Sunday, September 27!
    • Individuals who donate to this campaign through the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank's special donation page in the amount of $25 OR MORE will receive a link to two (2) specially curated sets of concert videos.  
    • These video sets compiled by feature a compelling assortment of performers collaborating with peer musicians, which complements the overall campaign theme of working together. 
    • Once you donate, the Food Bank will send you a "thank you" email that will contain the link to the two (2) specially curated sets of concert videos!
  • WHERE TO GO ONLINE TODAY TO DONATE:  Once again, here is the Food Bank's special donation page for this campaign:
  • WHY DONATE NOW?  The need has never been greater.  Because of COVID-19 there has been a 40% increase in the numbers of families turning to the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank for help.  Our campaign's goal (as you will see on the Food Bank's Tunes for Tables donation page) is $10,000--but in all honesty, we are hoping to blow right past that if at all possible!  Something very important to bear in mind here: Every $25 donated to Tunes for Tables will provide 125 meals for people struggling with hunger in Southwestern PA
p.s. Thanks to Stacy Innerst ( for the design and creation of the logo and the Tunes for Tables logo.
And...This fundraising campaign is in memory of Margot Gloninger Jones (1952-2007).  With family and friends alike, she was a true knitter of the bonds that hold us together.
Thank you...



2. Grace Slick once implored “feed your head”…


While you are doing this musically through, think also about “feeding your brethren”—that is, think about supporting those who work our family farms, and also those in our communities who are impoverished and need a helping hand.  Go to the two links below, and be generous of spirit—YOU can help Those Who Feed help Those In Need!

  1. FARM AID ( .....Since 1985 the nonprofit organization Farm Aid has provided unflagging support for farmers, and has raised millions to promote a strong and resilient family farm system of agriculture.  Farm Aid stages an annual concert—featuring Farm Aid board members Willie Nelson, Neil Young, John Mellencamp and Dave Matthews, plus inspiring musical guests—and this event serves to raise funds and awareness for the work that Farm Aid does every day of the year:  Promoting food from family farms, growing the good food movement, and helping farmers thrive.
  2. FEEDING AMERICA ( .....This organization is the nation’s leading domestic hunger-relief charity.  Its mission is to feed America’s hungry through a nationwide network of member food banks and engage our country in the fight to end hunger.  On the Feeding America site, on the right, you’ll see “Feeding America in Your Community”.  Select the state that you’re living in, and information will come up listing area food bank locations in your own community.

3. And now back to that “feed your head” directive, one more time.....

There is another organization that provides sustenance, and this one feeds the heart and the mind.  This is the Public Broadcasting ServicePBS.
