As it turns out, Breaking Bad may be more than just the best scripted drama on
cable television. The production is also going out with a bang of charitable heroism, on top of their consistent community activism!
NOT ONLY has the show spotlighted New Mexico as a brilliant place to film*, and highlighted the beauty of our landscapes (I’m looking at you
God Mr. Slovis), but throughout production the cast, crew and studio have quite literally stepped up to the plate in taking care of those in need in our area!
RIGHT NOW there is not one, but at least FOUR charitable endeavors aimed at helping the show’s backdrop and home base:
- Our own WORLDWIDE Raffle benefiting the Barrett Foundation, building futures for homeless women and children for over 25 years
- The YDI “Farewell Tribute”, meet & greet opportunity, raising funds for youth arts education
- Joy Junction, the state’s largest emergency homeless shelter, is NOW selling show donated items in their thrift shop!
- AND the production has also donated to our designee’s site store!
If this isn’t goodness for goodness sake, we don’t know what is! To bring a world to light, and then to light up that world is quite a feat.
We will miss you Breaking Bad – soon to wrap, but NEVER EVER to be forgotten. THANK YOU!
