Rehab For Quitters needs your help!

Jenni and Richie plan to stay in Canada but without being able to work they can not raise the funds for immigration needed to stay here. They are trying to get the cost of immigration which is $3000 CDN in donations, and any money would help greatly. It's definately hard on everyone these days with the economy and such, but this is for a good cause.

The cost for them to live at home in New Jersey would be double the amount it is here in Toronto. Jenni has many work opportunities here and Richie has his band Rehab For Quitters here. Without immigration they can not continue to live here and have these wonderful opportunities. Any help is greatly appreciated.

The couple are also doing odd jobs around Toronto to try and contribute as well, but without work permits it's hard for them to find work and hard to get loans.

Donations can be made at:
select make a payment.
SEND payment to jenniandrich@gmail.com

The benefit concert went great they raised $500 so that will help greatly.
The benefit concert went well in Oshawa as well thank you to Black Cat Attack for hosting this event.

They also have a petition going around all over the place so please sign it. There is a link to it below.


Check out Rehab For Quitters. Straight up rock and roll with an in your face punk edge and a 50's flare.

The New full length album titled "Ladies and Gentlemen...Rehab for Quitters" has been Released North America wide through Boonsdale Records. www.boonsdalerecords.com and will be available in stores shortly.
