From Chipotle:

“On Thursday, March 23 from 10:45 a.m. to 10:00 p.m., Chipotle Mexican Grill will host a fundraiser across all D.C. Metro-area restaurants to support the YMCA of Metropolitan Washington. When customers dine at any of these locations and mention the fundraiser at the register, Chipotle will donate 50 percent of the proceeds to support the organization. (more…)

Today’s the day!! Thanks again to all who donated in the fight to end childhood cancers. You guys kicked ass and PoPville broke $2000 for the first time this year. So for all who donated remember to come to Boundary Stone to pick up your t-shirts and stay for a pint or three. Also this year the Boundary Stone team has added an awesome raffle – $50 for a 1-100 chance to win a trip to win a trip to Ireland with hotels and VIP tours of Guinness and Jameson. Amazing.

My head is getting shaved around 4:15pm but I’ll be there from around 3-6. Thanks to all who’ve helped out!! See you soon(ish.)

Ireland Trip

eastern band

“Dear PoPville,

While at the Georgetown men’s basketball game on Saturday, the Eastern High School marching band played at halftime and they mentioned they are raising funds to take a trip to New Orleans in April to play and visit Southern University, so band members can talk to the band director about possible scholarships. The Go Fund Me page is below:

eastern2neworleans The Blue and White Marching Machine is excited about the opportunity to travel to Louisiana. This will be the first time our band will be showcased in that region in over 20 years! We will be traveling to New Orleans April 28th-May 1st. As you know, it can be costly to move a large organization, so we need your help. All donations will be greatly appreciated as we embark on this adventure for our students. They will learn about the rich history of New Orleans, additionally, visit and tour prestigious HBCU “Southern University in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. While on campus, students will meet with the director of bands and university administrators to discuss scholarship opportunities.

Thank you for your continued support

Help spread the word!


You guys are the best! As promised here is my daughter hugging #dingo.  Remember for everyone who donated to the St. Baldrick’s fight against childhood cancers – come to the shaving event at Boundary Stone on Sunday starting at 3pm to pick up your PoPville t-shirts and stay for a beer or two. If anyone else wants in you can still donate here. Thanks all!

They are inseparable.



“Dear PoPville,

Two families with children enrolled in a local elementary school, Bruce Monroe Elementary at Park View (BMPV), are currently facing deportation proceedings and are approaching the community for help.

A fund has been established to support the families so they can retain an attorney.

We’re urging neighbors to please consider donating! Any money not spent providing legal assistance to BMPV families will be donated to the CAIR coalition and CARECEN in equal parts.”

juice joint popville

“Dear PoPville,

I just ran into a former employee in front of the Juice Joint and he told me what had happened.”

From GoFundMe:


“Hi friends!! I’m reaching out for your support.

As many of you may know, I closed my business, Juice Joint Cafe, this past October after 21 years in business. Unfortunately, between declining sales and my health issues, I was unable to sustain the business, which leads me to why I need your support now.

In early March, 2016 i noticed a small lump in my neck. Not having the insurance, time and money to properly evaluate my condition, I just ignored it. (more…)


From an email:

“Join A Free Hand Co. in the newly redesigned A Creative DC: Brookland space for WOMEN + DENIM: a fundraising shopping party and jeans drive! Local artists and retailers will be selling products ranging from all-natural skincare (Be Clean), to clothing and accessories (Kaleidos and Mallory Shelter Jewelry) to home goods and paper products (Elizabeth Graeber and Painted Palettes). We’ll have sparkling wine on hand and plenty of ~GOOD VIBES~ as we support DC women. (more…)

It’s that time of year again – I don’t like to bother you guys with my personal projects but this is an important one and it’s a fight I’m sure you can again get behind. I have an ambitious total of $1500 that I’d like to raise this year so any little bit you can give will help get to that goal. If you’re able please give whatever you can and like previous years – anyone who gives $10 or more will get a free PoPville shirt that you can pick up at the shaving event. It’s at Boundary Stone again (116 Rhode Island Ave NW) March 12th at 3pm. You can donate to my page here and I’ll bring a bunch of shirts (both old and new) for those who gave. Thanks for your generosity it means a lot to me and it means the world to the children you’ll be helping out.
