DMB helps rebuild New Orleans

The DMB is offering a $1.5 million challenge grant to help build the New Orleans Habitat Musicians' Village, reports MTV News. The village would include Habitat for Humanity homes and house the Ellis Marsalis Center for Music. The money comes from a fundraising concert the DMB did in Denver with the Neville Brothers and the John Butler Trio. "This is our way to get the word out that there is more work to do, and ask people to step up to the challenge and make a donation to help," the band said in a recent statement. If you want to help out, donations can be made online at habitat-nola.org, plus the DMB will match the donation dollar-for-dollar.

sweet!

If you want to rebuild an area do it yourself. Should everyone just expect others to help them out when things go bad? If one can't learn how to fish on their own with education, they should shouldn't eat. If you choose to live where hurricanes can strike, get insurance or move to a reasonable location.

PS. If I was bringing in $57 million/year I might consider throwing 1.5 back. Can a typical person even comprehend that yearly gross?
