First, many thanks to DCist.com for posting information about the Breadline Bar Crawl. Despite any editorial reservations they may have about the location of the Crawl, we are big fans DCist and are very appreciative for the publicity.
Now on to some great news. We are certainly aware of that fact that while being laid off is not fun, it pales in comparison to what some people in DC have to go through every day of their lives. To that end, we have chosen to donate a portion the of the proceeds from the Breadline Bar Crawl to Central Union Mission. Central Union Mission provides shelter, food, education, and other vital services to the less fortunate in the DC area and relies on the support of donors to provide all of its services free of charge.
So now your Friday afternoon of drinking will have a purpose. For those of you who are employed, just tell that to your boss when you call in sick or skip out of the office early. If he/she doesn't agree, then he/she is a horrible, horrible person.
