Always on the outside looking in.

Think Globally - Act Locally.

Maybe you were expecting a list of fanzines and bands. But, there's things that are a little more important than that to us these days. In the past Bombshelter was all about supporting the underdogs and providing them exposure.

These days we still are. We make a regular effort to use our extra time to take care of those who might be a little less fortunate then us. After more than a decade of working with video producers with no budgets and musicians in worse shape than us, we've learned that we can't be everything to everybody but, it's always good to give a little bit back when you can. Whether you give money or time, find a way to support the planet and invest in your own neighborhood.

Below are organizations that Frank "Bill Bored" Harlan and his family are actively involved with.

2500 NE 54 th St. Seattle , WA 98105
Phone: 206-694-4500

YouthCare serves youth and their families who are experiencing alienation, conflict, and homelessness. By developing resiliency, we create opportunities for success.

There are close to 1,000 homeless youth in Seattle every night. They sleep in cars, abandoned buildings, under bridges and on friend’s couches. These young people are often homeless because the streets are safer than home. Many have been abused and abandoned. Their stories are tragic. Once on the streets, kids have few resources to find food, clothing and shelter for survival. Without proper resources youth are more likely to turn to destructive behaviors, such as crime, prostitution and drugs.

Every youth should have a warm place to stay, healthy food, caring adults, and opportunities to grow and succeed. YouthCare delivers services that meet the needs of Seattle’s homeless and at-risk youth. YouthCare has a wide range of volunteer experiences with a variety of time commitments and involvement. No matter which volunteer experience you choose, you will be helping to make a positive change, one life at a time.

Click Here to visit Kiva

Kiva's mission is to connect people through lending for the sake of alleviating poverty. Kiva is the world's first person-to-person micro-lending website, empowering individuals to lend directly to unique entrepreneurs around the globe.

If you've got a little extra cash that you're willing to loan to another human being, here's a project each member of our family participates in.

We started off putting $25 into a micro-loan program and we are slowly working our way up to $200 a little bit at a time. Once the money is in the system, and loans are being paid back, we plan to recycle it and possibly add more $ to the kitty each year. Visit Kiva's website and read some of the stories, see how little it actually takes to give someone a chance to be successful and have a fuller and more bountiful life.

Heifer help families lift themselves out of poverty by assisting community groups to plan a livestock or agriculture project. Heifer staff meets with groups to make sure their goals are compatible with Heifer’s mission, and that the groups will be able to finish their projects. When a project is approved, Heifer trains the group in animal care, environmentally friendly farming, gender equity, and community development. Recipients also agree to share one or more of their animals’ offspring with others in need in what Heifer calls Passing on the Gift, multiplying the benefits of the original gift throughout the community.
