Janet Housden Born Innocent Fund

$22,794 of $22,000 goal

Raised by 294 people in 6 months
Created September 9, 2018
ATTENTION; The show March 24th at the Echo is now SOLD OUT.  Thank you so much for your generous donations.  If you would still like to donate to Janet's campaign you can, but admission to the show is no longer available.  If you have received a confirmation email that you are on the guest list we will see you there.  All the best, and thank you again, Team Janet


Long time friend and former drummer of Redd Kross, Janet Housden is currently being treated for breast cancer.    Janet is a BADASS, she's not gonna take this crap sitting down,...unless its sitting on a drum stool of course.  

So we at Redd Kross HQ, have decided the best way to help her fight this bullshit is to reunite, for one night only, with our 1982 line up, featuring Janet Housden (on drums), Tracy Lea (on guitar), as well as Jeff and Steve to perform our Born Innocent album in its entirety at the Echo in Los Angeles on Sunday March 24th.  It will be an afternoon show so plan accordingly. 

We are asking people that would like to attend the concert to donate $50 to this campaign and you will reserve your spot on the list for the gig.   If you donate multiples of $50 please confirm how many spots on the list you are reserving.  If you can not make the gig but would still like to support Janet, know that all donations (after GoFundMe commissions) are going directly to her.

Of course we know that battling cancer is tricky and unpredictable business.   She has already gone through several rounds of Chemo, next is an operation to remove the cancer cells and then she will follow that with radiation treatment.    We have scheduled the show for a time when, if all goes as planned, Janet should be well on the mend, cancer free and sporting a sassy new haircut.   Janet and all of us are looking forward to having a celebratory night of friends, family, music and kicking cancer's ass!  Please join us. 

Janet would also like people to know, she does have insurance and some savings, she is not destitute or anything.  But while she is in treatment she's without work and income.  We want to relieve her of as much extra stress as possible while she is fighting this battle.   Please support her, no amount is too small.  Much Love xoxo Team Janet

Hello Donors, Thank you once again for generously donating to Janet's campaign.

The Redd Kross Born Innocent Benefit for Janet Housden is happening this Sunday March 24th at the Echo Los Angeles. The showtimes follow as such;
4 PM Doors Open
5 PM Lawndale
6 PM Redd Kross

If you donated $50 your name will be on the list solo, so bring an ID. If you donated $100 you will be on the list +1 (in other words 2 tickets), and so forth and so on.

I personally wrote hundreds of donors to thank them for their donation and to confirm that their name will be on the list (plus however many tickets they donated for) at the venue day of show. Unfortunately many people have commented here on GoFundMe, on FB and Instagram to say they never received their conformation email. This is an irksome bug of the GoFundMe email system as i definitely wrote every donor on this list to thank them and let them know they will be on the guest list at the show. Whatever no big deal this has been a labor of love.

But I am writing now in an attempt to clear up the confusion. IF you donated you will definitely be on the list. If your donation was processed by GoFundMe think of that as confirmation that you will be on the list. Also you can check the donor page on this campaign to verify you are on the list. If you donated anonymously and want further confirmation comment on this page or email me at stevemcd1@mac.com for further conformation. As well, if you donated, but now know that you can not make the show, please write me and let me know so that we can take your name off the list.

OK,.... enough of the practical matters. A much more fun update is to let everyone know that aside from an irksome cold that Janet recently contracted from me (sorry!!!!!),..she is doing great and is gonna have a terrific time this Sunday. We met our goal and I'm pleased to say Janet have received ALL of your donations, less GoFundMe fees and $1500 to cover venue expenses. Which means nearly $20k has gone into Janets account. Great Job everyone!!!! We look forward to seeing all your beautiful supportive faces. Much Love, Steven McDonald and Team Janet
