Epiphany in the Lower 9 New Orleans January 6 2008
We took a trip to the Lower 9th ward this morning to say goodbye to the Pink House Project (it packs up tonight) and see the progress in the neighborhood.There is going to be a free concert tonight and brangelina are sure to be there along with BCS touristas and hopefully tons of press. We're darn proud that our customers raised 100 to help and resolved to create more items that will help this community out.
Our pals Teena and Phil(http://inexplicableconfetti.etsy.com) have created some wonderful tshirts to celebrate and make money for the project as well and we hope our street team will be inspired to join in. More and more I am convinced that this city is a huge DIY project as progress abounds at the hands of the people and no one else.It is our epiphany moment, that progress in our city and ourselves can only come from us and within and no other source can help us through it. Sad and uplifting at the same time. Now to get to work...
