Here's a tip for a wonderfully noteworthy L.A. non-profit, Machine Project. They're a delightfully kooky resource for all sorts of interesting things: public fruit mapping and gathering, canning, seminars on sewing, crafting, electronics, and everything in-between.
The email I got from them today advertises a phone in poetry service! Call 213 448 7668 between 9-10pm Monday - Thursday for a free poem of the length and moral character of your choosing.
They're official purpose: "Machine Project exists to encourage heroic experiments of the gracefully over-ambitious. We provide educational resources to people working with technology, we collaborate with artists to produce site-specific works, and we promote conversations between scientists, poets, technicians, performers, and the community of Los Angeles as a whole."
Find a list of their upcoming classes and seminars at http://machineproject.com/classes/. From there, click to their home page for more information or contact them directly.
And keep them in mind if you're searching for a nonprofit to support financially this holiday season. Machine Project is a 501c3 registered non-profit so donations are tax deductible.
