My name is Mike Zito.
I am a touring Blues musician.
I live in Nederland, Tx. Our area is under siege from Hurricane Harvey and flooding.
My own home is secure and my family is safe, I'm even fortunate enough to be working this week....but many are not. I know there are a lot of assistance programs for people who have lost everything, this is for our local musicians. Guys and gals who play in our area every week and make money hand to mouth. We've all lost a gig or so every now or then and it stings, but my friends just lost all there gigs. They are self employed musicians who have no income now and for the forseeable next month. This is not a huge campaign, it's to put money in the hands of local musicians to eat and pay the bills for the next week or so. Also if anyone lost instruments and needs new ones to get back to work.

This is a direct assistance fundraiser.
I will be giving this money directly to musicians that come forward who need help. It will all be transparent. Any extra collected funds will go directly to our local shelters.

I know the musicians personally and will help get this money to them as soon as possible. They will thank you personally for your assistance. You will see first hand who you helped.

I realize this isn't the most important thing right now, but it's important and forgotten and it's what I can do to help my community.

the funds from this campaign will be directly taken from my checking account and given to these musicians. I have a list of 25 individual musicians and if the goal is met, we can get them each $500.  I will post pictures and videos of each of these musicians getting the help they need. They can continue to volunteer in our community and not worry about the loss of income.

Thank you all for helping.

Peace, Love, Zito
