Abandoned on Fire

gofundme link: http://www.gofundme.com/amenbrother

A gofundme campaign to raise money for the surviving member (and family) of The Winstons, the group that recorded "Amen, Brother" that the amen break is sampled from.

A nice idea and it's picking up steam rapidly.  Considering how ridiculously widespread the amen has become and that there's apparently only one member of the group still alive it's easy to say "too little too late" but hey, you'll get a warm fuzzy feeling.
