WhyHunger Benefit Concerts in NJ - November 23 & 24 - Rahway and Park Ridge

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! Going to keep this short and sweet. Most of us are very lucky and don't worry or have never worried about where their next meal is coming from. Not everyone can say that and it's beyond sad that a country as wealthy as ours sends almost 40 million people to bed each night hungry. Really staggering. I have been working with the great folks at WhyHunger (formerly World Hunger Year) for over 20 years now as they work tirelessly to get to the root causes of hunger and poverty in the USA.

Please join me, and a slew of great songwriters, this weekend in two New Jersey location as we all lend our time, energy and talent to help out folks in our communities. Information is below and I hope you can make it out. If not, please go to WhyHunger ( and find out more about the work that is being done everyday to make our country and our world "a better place to be".

all my best,
Joe D
