I swallowed my pride, gulped hard, and asked for help. And someone came through with a box of matzoh, a dozen eggs, horseradish, a jar of gefilte fish and a teeny-tiny bottle of sweet kosher wine so I could "do Pesach".
Now, Jewish Family And Child Service of Portland wants to do this on a larger scale for folks who are in that same position.
It sucks to be so broke that you have to swallow your pride and ask for help. But perhaps because I know what this was like, I would like to help make sure that, when someone else works up the courage to ask, the stuff will be there for them. Because asking for help and being told there isn't any help available sucks worse than asking in the first place.
So between now and March 14, I will donate all profits from online sale of "Ten Miles" -- the whole album, or a song at a time -- to JFCS' efforts to provide Passover boxes for those who cannot buy them for themselves this year.
