My husband’s super-talented friend Francis Porter has been working on a docu-series with Homeboy Industries that follows the lives of gang-involved men and women trying to leave the gang life behind. For those of you not familiar with Homeboy Industries, it is the largest, oldest gang intervention program in the country and it’s based right here in LA. For instance, the organization has several businesses, like the Homeboy Bakery downtown where you can pick up freshly baked bread, which creates an environment that provides training, work experience, and above all, the opportunity for rival gang members to work side by side.
So when Francis told me about Homeboy’s virtual fundraiser, I had to blog about it. It’s called Virtual Car Wash. The car wash holds special significance in various urban communities throughout LA. The neighborhood comes together to assist a family in a time of financial need. With the virtual cash wash, we can all help families in crisis. Just $10 will make an impact. You can donate by clicking HERE! It’s tax deductible. And please, please, please spread the word! Thank you!!!!
And I’ll keep you posted about the show’s development. I’ve seen sneak footage and it ROCKS.
