Here I am with my friend Liam, who is producing a benefit for Hurricane Katrina victims. I'm trying to help by asking for donations of product that we could offer to those buying raffle tickets. If you have ANYTHING you can offer, or anyone who you can ask- please let me know asap. I've already gotten some choice stuff donated by Adam, Brianne, April, Sara and Dan. Nothing is too small- everything helps. Thanks so much in advance. And make sure to come to the show!
