Yesterday, my daughter, dear friend @silly_leenie, and I made #carepackages to hand out to the #homeless in #WestLosAngeles . I called it #operationgratitude . We bought simple items that most of us take for granted like toothbrushes, toothpaste, socks, tissues, Kotex, and hand sanitizer. We also made 2 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for each package and gave out 2 bottles of water to each person. I spent about $60 making 12 packages, so $5 each. We drove down #picoblvd , then to the beach and ended our mission at the freeway underpass at #sepulveda and #the405 . What I was surprised to see was that the majority of the homeless people we came into contact with were female. Under the makeshift tent in this photo was a young man and his girlfriend. They were especially pleased about the toothpaste. Another one was a mother and her daughter. The daughter was sleeping, but the mother was really nice. They seemed like they had some money. They each had their own tent, were clean, and had a small dog. If I had to make an assumption, I would guess that she just didn't make enough money for an apartment in overpriced #westla . #begrateful#behumble#giveback#raiseawareness#spreadkindness#gratitude#humility#kindness#LA
I just took this picture of me sitting on The 405...

Six years to this very day, I moved from Kansas to Long Beach with nothing but the possessions that would fit in the trunk of my used car. To celebrate my Cali-versary, I’m happy to release the preview for our first single ALL MY MONEY'S ON THE HIGHWAY and music video, out Sept 12.
I’ve been waiting for years to record and release this song, which chronicles the frustrations of maintaining relationships, sanity and a full tank of gas while battling LA traffic. I poured my love, sweat, tears and road rage into this track. Plus we got @natendork to film a cool little video while I convinced the guys to drive me around in a @mini. Much nice than that beater I’m still driving!
ALL MY MONEY'S ON THE HIGHWAY out September 12.
