Of course, I managed to avoid the ‘set cough’ for almost the entire run of the show – also of course, I started getting a scratchy throat right after lunch yesterday, but I feel better today (I want to meet the woman who invented “Airborne” and give her a HUGE hug).
Our wrap party is tonight, and the producers are asking for voluntary donations for the women’s shelter where we shot a good bit of the show.
They (the shelter, not the producers) provide services to women in need of transitional housing, and they’re on a really tight budget – the building they’re housed in needs repairs (badly), and they were in such need of money that they let a movie crew disrupt their lives (graciously, I might add – I’ve never met a nicer group of people. Both the residents and staff were friendly and co-operative throughout the entire time we were there, even though it was clearly a massive inconvenience).
In Los Angeles, there are surprisingly few services for women in need of emergency housing, and this one really needs help.
So, should you have some money burning a hole in your pocket and would like to help out your sisters with a tax deductible contribution, please contact the Sunshine Mission in Los Angeles.
Or, mail checks to:
2600 S. Hoover St.
Los Angeles, Ca
Please write a check if you can spare it – tell ’em you were with the movie crew.
We’re downloading the truck on Monday, and then I’m onto something else Tuesday and Wednesday.
