Holiday HAAM Jam – Volume II

September 10, 2012

The annual Holiday HAAM JAM benefit album is a project of several friends of HAAM to raise funds for the organization. All time and materials are donated, and all proceeds directly benefit HAAM. In 2011, $10,000 was raised in 5 weeks. The organizers hope 2012 will raise at least $25,000.
