Wish List

The monetary goal of RhythmWalk/RIDE for Zimbabwe was to raise $25,000 to be split between three non-profit organizations: Village Health Project, Ancient Ways/Nhimbe for Progress, and the Shungu DzeVana Trust. I am happy to announce we have reached that goal and are still taking in donations. I am continuing the fund-raising push as my trip to Zimbabwe in June 2006 is fast approaching. Thank you for any support you can offer.

These non-profits (see the Cause section for more information) depend on their donors’ support to continue making a difference for the Zimbabwean people. Please pledge a generous tax-deductible donation toward my project. Your support is going a long way toward fighting poverty, starvation and AIDS in Zimbabwe.

I personally financed all costs of the hike/ride along with some help from corporate sponsorships for my food and equipment. That means 100% of the monies raised go to support the efforts of the three non-profit organizations.

Attention: As of January 2006 I am currently looking for a new fiscal sponsor to provide a tax-deductible shelter for new donations. Until this happens, online donations will not be possible. I am sorry for the inconvenience. DONATIONS ARE STILL WELCOME. Please contact me directly for the proper temporary procedure:

I can sympathize with those who might not have money to give. As a musician in an area as expensive as the San Francisco Bay where I now live, it can be hard to feed myself much less someone else. Just remember even just a few US dollars could support a Zimbabwean for a month. If you can’t give money, tell someone else about the website and encourage others to support humanitarian efforts worldwide.

Thanks for your support!
