Our Charity

New Donations to Fresh Start:
$400 - Mitch's Surf Shop Raffle
$80 - Tips; Voices For Children Concert

Our first goal was to raise $1000 for Fresh Start Surgical Gifts.
That changed with a 100% matching grant from an anonymous donor!
So - our goal is $2000. And . . .

We DID it!
We can't believe it!

Check out our Guitar Graph, it's totally red. Just shows you that if you set a goal and work towards it slowly you can do it every time. I still can't believe we actually made it, our Christmas Concerts really kicked it up. Playing guitar and arranging our concerts was fun and really emotionally rewarding. Probably the hardest part of the whole thing was filling in 15 little guitar graphs in Photoshop with rising amounts of red color over the last year!

Thanks to all the people who have paid us to play, bought our t-shirts, 
and thrown $1 bills into our tip jar!

Fresh Start is a really deserving local charity. Here we are, visiting them with our first check-

Fresh Start Surgical Gifts is a local charity based in Carlsbad, California. They organize reconstructive surgery for children who are underpriveliged or underinsured, treating both children from the U.S. and internationally. There's a long line of kids waiting for Fresh Start surgery.

Insurance companies will often not cover facial surgery, even when it's desperately needed after burns or accidents, or for kids with extreme physical deformities if the child is healthy in every other way.

Fresh Start asks top surgeons to donate their time and facilities entirely for free to do this good work. 100% of all donations to Fresh Start Surgical Gifts goes to their medical program.

We like these people a LOT and when some money does come our way for our performances they get it all!
