Additionally, there are two canvas prints from my rock and roll days that are signed by the artist, John Mellencamp and Roger Daltry. Any money made from the sale of these two prints will be donated to 1Matters.org a group that moves the un-housed into domestic autonomy. A bit about 1Matters below.
Started in Toledo, Oh, in 1990 as the Homeless Awareness Project (HAP) by formerly homeless-turned-entrepreneur-turned-philanthropist Ken Leslie, the volunteer organization has become a global advocacy group creating real time collaborative solutions to move unhoused (homeless) individuals and families off the streets and into domestic autonomy.
In 2008 HAP became 1Matters after a visit by singer John Mellencamp to their annual Project Connect/Tent City event. John was moved by the collaboration and invited all of the guests to his concert that evening where he talked with them from the stage. One guest returned to Project Connect and said, "Ken, John talked to us from the stage; I guess I really do matter."
1Matters was born.
While working on the road with Mr. Mellencamp, Harry Sandler met Ken and fell in love with the mission of 1Matters and joined the Board of Directors. Harry is working to grow 1Matters into a national organization and engage others in the music industry.
In addition to the global advocacy of “World Homeless Action Day”, 1Matters has just funded a new program, “Veterans Matter” which partners with the VA and HUD to move veterans into housing.
