Listeners were captivated by Mr. Perry's story as told in "The Undisclosed Addendum featuring D. Watkins" on March 16, 2017. His unique perspective as a witness to Freddie Gray's arrest and a long time resident of the Sandtown Winchester neighborhood of Baltimore evoked an outpouring of support from our audience. Undisclosed is proud to provide listeners with a way to help.
As you heard on the addendum, Mr. Perry is a military veteran who bears the responsibility of caring for a garden in Sandtown Winchester. Unfortunately, Mr. Perry's age and disability make it incredibly difficult for him to maintain the land.
The 6th Branch is a Baltimore-based nonprofit that works with veterans to lead community service efforts. In the nearly 8 years since its founding, the 6th Branch has led more than 4,000 volunteers during hundreds of service projects and specializes in vacant lot revitalization. Given Mr. Perry's history as a veteran and the 6th Branch's distinguished track record, we think the partnership is perfect for the project.
Check out The 6th Branch's great work at www.the6thbranch.org. There, you'll read about the organization's history, its projects, and how to donate. Donations will go to the beautification and upkeep of the garden. Also, the 6th Branch is planning a day of service at the garden, and folks near Baltimore will soon learn how they can visit to help out.
In 2015, Undisclosed was created as a vehicle to promote and fundraise for the Adnan Syed Legal Defense Trust. Since that time, Undisclosed has helped raise more $200,000 for this fund, in addition to dedicating more than $100,000 raised through podcast sponsorship.
In 2016, Undisclosed host Jon Cryer donated more than $30,000 raised from podcast sponsorship to 22 charities and non-profits across the country. Moreover, on behalf of the Georgia Innocence Project, we helped solicit our listeners to donate more than $70,000 to help overturn wrongful convictions in Georgia.
Fundraising for worthy causes is woven into Undisclosed's DNA. Our listeners consistently recognize this and respond to the causes we promote with their attention, time, and money. We are grateful to have such a passionate fanbase who do more than just listen to our work: they engage.
We encourage you to do the same. Please consider donating to organizations below. And thanks.
