…I found out a few weeks ago from Kevin Wood that Andy’s mom, Toni, was in need of some help. Andy was Mother Love Bone’s most beloved bandleader and singer. His Mom, Toni, is such a magical woman. Her spirit is so close to Andy’s, to whom she gave so much love, humor and spark. If you’d ever seen Andy and Toni together, you’d see the connection.
Toni is now in her 70’s and living in a leaky, dilapidated trailer with bad wiring, while still being a part time caregiver. The more Jeff and I learned about her situation, the more we felt we couldn’t ignore it. We decide to go for it to get her a new trailer! We have donated some money to the cause here A New Home for Toni Wood and we will also auctioning off a few items to raise additional funds over the next month or so. Please be on the look out for these here at Pearl Jam’s official eBay site and on Pearl Jam Activism’s Facebook page. Know that if you purchase any of the items to support Toni Wood, the money is going to a great place.
Thank you all for listening.
