They Took My Money Song by whistleblower Stefan Keith Howard at vomitt.com
This comical song has therapeutic value for problem gamblers. Please take a chance on helping to save innocent Ametican lives.

Hi, I work with a nonprofit in Atlantic City called Mudgirls Studios. Mudgirls is a certified 501(c)3 Nonprofit New Jersey corporation. Their mission is to assist economically disadvantaged and at-risk women in Atlantic City and southeastern New Jersey by (1) providing artistic and entrepreneurial training to help transition them out of poverty and onto a pathway of self-sufficiency; and (2) to help women gain a source of long-term supplemental income through the creation and sale of functional art and aesthetic utilitarian objects. It's a really unique organization, and I wondered if your station does any kind of promotion or on air interviews supporting local nonprofits. Below is a short history of the organization.
MudGirls Studios began in Adelaide’s Place in 2016, a day shelter for homeless women in Atlantic City. Each week, several ladies gathered around the kitchen table to roll out clay, making bowls, trays, plates, boxes, and decorative items. Looking forward to “clay day,” these talented soon-to-be artisans poured their heart and soul into their ceramic wares. At first, most created “gifts” for loved ones, not being able to offer much else in their current circumstances. But in time, under the direction of Founder and Designer, Dorrie Papademetriou, new designs were introduced, and the women were trained in larger production procedures with a focus on producing high quality work with great attention to detail.
We continue to conduct workshops at Adelaide’s Place, but as the demand increased for our ceramic wares in local retail stores, it became clear that MudGirls Studios needed to expand, a daunting yet exciting challenge. So, thanks in part to the generous support of Ocean Inc. we created a full time, functional studio space on the second floor of St. Michaels Church in Atlantic City, where we produced 2565 handmade tiles for various large-scale wall installations in 2019.
We recognize that art and entrepreneurship can only flourish through the medium of community exposure. Craft fairs offer especially effective opportunities for the MudGirls to engage with the community, by presenting the work we create and discussing the creative and production processes. The Makersfest in Manahawkin, New Jersey, the Wheaton Arts Fine Craft Fair, in Millville, New Jersey and the International Fair Trade Gift Fair at Stockton University are just a few of the events where our participants attend.
A turning point for MudGirls Studios came when Atlantic City Development Corporation (AC Devco), the agency charged with building the Atlantic City Gateway Project, commissioned MudGirls Studios to design and produce ceramic tiles for Stockton University, and South Jersey Gas. Other commissions for MudGirls Studios products include the Atlantic Care Foundation, the Wells Fargo Foundation, Contact Cape Atlantic, Hard Rock Casino & Hotel, and many others, in addition to many private individuals who have placed special/custom orders.
Validating our mission as well as the quality of our craft, the state-of-the-art New Brunswick Performing Art Center in New Brunswick, NJ awarded MudGirls Studios a major installation project in 2019. The project required the women to work daily in the studio for several months toward a long-term goal. As the women worked, they learned teambuilding, design, and production and, above all, mutual commitment. Meeting the deadline was a great challenge. The women committed to working diligently to ensure the deadline was met and project completed and were proud to celebrate at the recent ribbon cutting, which confirmed that that our vision for Mudgirls Studio is not only a viable but a promising model for program expansion and even replication.
