There is a non-profit here on the Louisiana Northshore called Safe Harbor. Here’s what they do in their words..
Safe Harbor is a non-profit, non-government agency in St. Tammany Parish serving women and children who are victims of domestic abuse. We can provide a safe place to stay and a variety of critical support services ranging from crisis intervention, legal advocacy, playgroups, emotional support, and community-based referrals for kids.
Their professional staff and trained volunteers help bridge the gap between victimization and independence. That includes everything from accessing the right social services to finding a job and a new place to live. We’re available 24 hours a day. We’re completely confidential. All services are free with no income eligibility requirement.
If you think about it, this type of non-profit can’t really use their success stories to promote what they do to raise funds to advance their cause. So every year they pick about 10 guys to be REAL MEN of St Tammany. This year, I am one of those men.
I have decided to use the radio station I work on to help me out. So, if you want to promote an event, if you want to whisper very public sweet nothings to your wife on the radio, if you want to talk about your business, I will do that for you. Heck, I’ll even bring the radio station to you and broadcast from your location. What’s the catch? To pay for those services you will make a tax deductible donation to Safe Harbor in my name. I’m game for just about anything. So, if you want to run your crazy idea by me, please email charles at lake 947 dot com. Put REAL MAN request in the subject line and we’ll figure how I can help you, as long as you donate to Safe Harbor. (And for those of you who live in other parts of the world and can’t hear the station… yes you can… streaming at lake947.com.)

My job is to raise money and awareness for a non-profit that by its very mission has a hard time promoting itself.
