This doesn't have anything to do with music, but I think it's important.
Some of you might already have heard about the two Chicagoans attacked and beaten by homeless people for no reason on the night of August 25. Here's a message I just received in regard to the situation that I wanted to share:
Last week, Chicago residents and bike enthusiasts Jen Hall and Joe Hoffman were brutally attacked in the South Loop. (http://tinyurl.com/jenhall) Jen had just started a new job and has fallen into the unlucky loophole of being without medical insurance.... which is terribly unfortunate since she has suffered a Traumatic Brain Injury, multiple tooth loss and a Femoral Nerve block in her lower left leg, all as a result of the attack. Since the attack, a 501 (c) (3) charitable trust fund has been set up to help offset Jen's medical costs.... which have already skyrocketed to more than $100,000.
More information about Jen's story is online at www.thewalkingmiracle.com.
Please spread the word!
