SUPPORT FOR TONI WOOD


Toni Wood is an elderly woman who lives alone in a trailer on Bainbridge Island, and she is mother to Kevin Wood, Brian Wood (of Malfunkshun, Devil Head, Fire Ants) and Andrew Wood (of Mother Love Bone). She is also caring for her son, who is currently undergoing cancer treatment. Her trailer home itself is in dire need of reparations, which are well outside her financial means, including a new roof and wiring, before the winter comes. Both Malfunkshun and Mother Love Bone are considered to be vital for the Seattle scene and many people claim to be influenced by their music. Please visit http://www.gofundme.com/br4bag to lend Toni some support. She may not be able to offer any perks or prizes for helping her, but perhaps her son Brian`s music is one way of saying thank you to those who help them, visit Brian`s SoundCloud to enjoy his music.

FISHER HOUSE


For the past 20 years, the Fisher House program has worked tirelessly to meet the needs of military Families everywhere. At the very heart of the program, Fisher Houses offer a “home away from home,” a place where families can stay and support their loved ones — at no cost — while they receive specialized military hospital/VA medical care. In 2009, the iconic KISW afternoon show, The Mens Room, partnered with Elysian Brewing to create Mens Room Original Red. The beer was an instant hit, and its tremendous success allowed KISW and Elysian Brewing to give something back to the community, by donating over $320K to date from the sales of Mens Room Original Red to the Fisher House program. Thanks to the support of the KISW Rockaholics, and beer drinkers in the Seattle area, we are able to honor and assist our veterans and active military personnel in this way.
