Crosstown Jam 4 Flood Relief
Sunday, October 9, 2005

Many WAMA members have called and emailed offering to do something to help people
on the Gulf Coast. The Crossstown Jam will be assembled for the benefit of flood victims,
Sunday, October 9, 2005. The event will take place at many locations in the Washington
area.

Hundreds of volunteers will be needed to perform, stage, promote and coordinate the shows.
Sponsors will also be needed to offset expenses - we want 100% of the funds to go to helping
people. If you have a venue, a sound system, lighting, stage equipment, or you are a tech
person, or a roadie, - you are invited to participate. You do not need to be a WAMA member
or from the DC area.

Web Sites for Hurricane Katrina:
(Prepared by Wayne Kahn)

1. http://hurricanekatrinavictims.com - working to help people find each other and listing of resources needed.

2. MoveOn.org Civic Action, formerly known as MoveOn.org, launched a new web site today, www.hurricanehousing.org asking its 3.3 million members and the public to post any available housing for the thousands of people left homeless by Hurricane Katrina. The organization will directly connect evacuees with volunteer hosts, and also provide the housing information to the Red Cross and Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). The emergency drive connects empty beds with hurricane victims in need of housing. The public can post free housing offers (a spare room, extra bed, even a decent couch), then evacuees and aid workers can search for available housing online at: www.hurricanehousing.org.
