Street Sense, the Washington area's newspaper about poverty and homelessness, will hold its first fundraiser September 28, 2006.

This inaugural event will take place at the Josephine Butler Park Center in Columbia Heights.

Not only will there be hardy appetizer, beer, wine, and non-alcoholic drinks, attendees will also get a chance to bid on some great silent auction items. Dozens of items are expected and already include a weekend on the Eastern Shore, a set of running clothes and shoes, a handyman for a day, and a gift certificate to Cafe St. Ex.

Vendors will also be performing poetry readings, and you will also get a chance to see the new Street Sense training and informational videos.

This all comes for the low minimum price of just $20 per person.

Not only will you be supporting an organization that provides immediate income to men and women on the street to help them out of homelessness, but you will also be helping raise awareness about the issues that face the city's poor and homeless.

Tickets must be purchased in advance and you can do so via the links below or by mailing a check (including the number of tickets you wish to purchase) to 1317 G Street NW, Washington, DC 20006.

Thank you
Street Sense.


So let's skip going out this weekend and help out our brothers and sisters, you should understand not all homeless folks are drug addicts and drunks, these are people who are trying hard to stay off the street, read some of the stuff on their web site. And don't forget that millions of Americans could face the same problem with in months of losing our jobs, so get you ass up and click on the link below and lets get busy.

Don't forget the homeless.

P.S For the right generous amount of donation I might let you kick me in the balls.**

Hey Mad,

I thought you'd find this interesting.

Medicin du Monde handed out very visible tents to all the homeless in Paris. This not only sheltered the homeless that couldn't get into shelters from the worst of the French weather, it made them harder to ignore.

Stay safe,

That's a pretty cool and smart idea, I did forward it to some people who are involved. Thanks a lot Peggy!
