John Pitches in to Help Unhoused Worldwide + Extensive Interview
In 2007 John visited a tent city in Toledo, OH raising awareness of the homeless which sparked the founding of 1Matters.org. John has continued his support not only for 1Matters, but all of those who have lost domestic autonomy in our nation.

Recently, John filmed a public service announcement for World Homeless Day (10/10/2010) and sat down to talk with 1Matters’ Ken Leslie, on behalf of Toledo Streets Newspaper, about homelessness, music, and progress. Click HERE to watch the PSA and read the interview.
