A co-worker of mine at my school began a wonderful organization with the help of students to raise money to provide financial help for retired Blues musicians in the Piedmont as well as to introduce younger people to great Blues music. They call their organization SOOTS (you can read more about it here and here) and they work feverishly to find ways to raise money.
Right now they're trying to win a grant from Pepsi and they need people to go to Pepsi's site to vote for their project. Please take a minute and go on over to the Pepsi site and vote for their project. It's a wonderful effort by young people to help these great bluesmen. Here are instructions on how to vote.
