New Mimi Fishman Auction Has Ended!

Wakarusa Festival VIP Passes!- for the Grateful Web

The word "Wakarusa" is a Native American term meaning "ass-deep". In and around the Lawrence Kansas area, it refers to the Wakarusa River, which is the primary stream that feeds Clinton Lake. Oddly enough, the river's average water depth is about "ass-deep".

The Wakarusa Music and Camping Festival is a 4-day foot-stomping party in the heart of the Midwest. Born in 2004, Wakarusa burst onto the scene with a diverse and eclectic lineup featuring over 70 artists. The 2004 bill perked the interest of both devout and casual music fans alike. Fans that made the trip to Wakarusa left with unforgettable stories of the music and the beautiful surroundings of Clinton Lake and the Lawrence area. In 2005, Wakarusa returned and quickly established itself as a premiere, grassroots event in the nationwide outdoor music scene. Attracting folks from all 50 U.S. states and 5 countries, the 2005 event featured over 80 artist, 5 stages and over 4 days of non-stop music and entertainment.

This auction has ended. Thanks for everyone who participated. Watch for another auction starting soon...

Mimi Fishman Auction For Conscious Alliance Has Ended!

Scramble Campbell original oil on canvas painting- for the Grateful Web

By the end of the week Hurricane Katrina hit, the Conscious Alliance was mobilized in Houston, TX with over 17,500 lbs. of food that we delivered to the Houston Food Bank (www.Houstonfoodbank.org).  We were able to raise over $25,000 since our internet fundraising campaign began one week ago.  100% of the donations we have raised on-line are being used to purchase food for evacuees of Hurricane Katrina.

Once in Houston we realized that while the hero's at the Houston Food Bank, that took in over 1,000,000 lbs. of food donations last weekend, are providing for the shelters, church's, and other non-profit agencies servicing evacuees, no one is delivering food to the 1,000's of people stranded in Hotels.

This will be our mission in Houston, TX when we head back down next week.  The funds raised from the Mimi Fishman Auction will be used to cover the administrative and overhead costs that we are incurring to make our hurricane relief efforts a reality.
