Friends of Peaches Lacey Known to many as “Lady P”, the volunteer host of “The Dusties Storm” on WORT 89.9 FM community radio, Peaches Lacey has helped to promote live music in our community, specifically Blues and R & B. She also hosts the “Eight O’clock Buzz” on WORT on the last Wednesday of each month. Peaches has dedicated her life to helping others and creating a stronger community. Peaches has needed OUR help!  Peaches suffers from osteoarthritis and is badly in need of knee surgery. But the surgery cannot be done until dental work has been completed.  With your help, we hope to raise $3,500 to cover the necessary dental work. As soon as we can raise $1,750 (half of the remaining total), Peaches can schedule an appointment and have the dental work performed.  (note: Project completed 2015; Dental work done.)

350 Madison is the Madison, Wisconsin, local action group of the international organization 350.org. They received their own 501c3 status in December 2016. Started by Madison area climate activists in January 2012, we plan and participate in local, national, and international actions to raise awareness of the pressing need to address climate change.  We are helping build a global movement that is creating the political will necessary to pass international climate legislation that will effectively return our planet to a stable climate.  We help unite the message of many groups that are working for a livable climate into one specific goal:  we need to get below 350 ppm.

LGBT Books to Prisoners
is a a donation-funded, volunteer-run organization based in Madison, WI that sends books and other educational materials, free of charge, to LGBTQ-identified prisoners across the United States.  This group just received their own 501c3 non-profit status - so donations can be made directly to this group. We have been doing this for nearly 10 years and have sent books to close to 5,000 prisoners in that time.  In 2015, we sent 3,042 packages of books - and we thank you for any support you can give, either in donations or volunteer help in Madison.
