Eat Donut Holes for Penguins at The Pinch in Columbia Heights

3548 14th Street, NW

From an email:

“For at least this weekend and next, donut holes are good for you. And good for penguins. And the Penguin Counters. A three-fer! Count yourself in!

Antarctic penguins are the region’s “canaries in the coal mine.” And for almost 20-years, Ron Naveen, a modern-day Dr. Dolittle, has been counting them, studying the health of three penguin species and their colonies. His work, the Antarctic Site Inventory, has helped instruct polar policies and research of countless scientists and members of the Antarctic Treaty Organization.

World-renown Besthesda-based film documentarians, Peter Getzels and Harriet Gordon, recently followed Ron Naveen and his Penguin Counters to the Antarctic, producing more than 70-hours of footage on their work and the amazing animals, sights and sounds of the Antarctic. Now it is time to take the footage and create a movie to tell this important story.

The Penguin Counters Movie is a labor of love, not money. To continue their work, Peter and Harriet have set up a Kickstarter Campaign to raise the funds necessary to put the movie together and submit it to film festivals worldwide. October 10th is the final day for donations. As with all Kickstarter campaigns, it is all or nothing.

The Pinch [3548 14th Street, NW] is very pleased to join this effort to help ensure the Penguin Counters story is told. The weekends of September 28th/29th and October 5th/6th, The Pinch will donate $5 for every order of donut holes to the Penguin Counters kickstarter campaign.”
