It's a Complex World - Help Rudy!

It's a Complex World - Let's help Bruce McCrae (Rudy Cheeks)

Sometimes things go your way and sometimes not so much.

Sometimes you are in a position to help others and sometimes you could use a little help yourself.

This is the case for our friend and Rhode Island's own Rudy Cheeks aka Bruce McCrae.  

Rudy has ALWAYS been there for the Rhode Island music/arts/journalism community - helping out in any way he can - always willing to give his time and talent to anyone or any cause that asks him. 

But now, Bruce (Rudy) could use a little help from his friends to get him through the hard times. Though he has been and is continuing to seek employment, things have been really tough lately - especially since The Providence Phoenix closed up shop. He is very grateful to Motif Magazine for picking up the P&J column, but they only publish twice a month which has cut his income substantially.  That, along with other circumstances have made life difficult for our good friend.  I'm hoping that our community can come together and help one of our own.

Please consider donating whatever you can to help our friend in life and our brother in music.

And please share this with your friends, if you are so inclined.

(All donations will go directly to Bruce.)

Thank you.
