From an email:

“I volunteer with the DC committee of a group called Water For People, our upcoming event will support drinking water and sanitation projects around the world. WFP as a national nonprofit has received stellar ratings in financial management from Charity Navigator 10 years running, and we partner with local governments, citizens, and local businesses to fund these projects.

We’re having a Canoe/Kayak event on Saturday, August 22 to benefit Water For People and the Washington Canoe Club. It’s a lot of fun–your ticket includes paddling in a canoe or kayak, food (straight from the grill), beer, and some great live entertainment, with the return of Aztec Sun.
You can get your tickets on Eventbrite here! There are a limited number of full (boat, food, drink, and music) tickets available. We also have limited (music + food/drink) and children’s tickets available.”


“Dear PoPville,

The contractor took the money and ran from a job to fix up the playground outside of our daycare. It is located just one block away from the Petworth metro on Rock Creek Church Rd. and takes care of infants and toddlers up to age 3 or 4. I have attached a photo of the playground in its current state. Below is more information about what happened.”

Sunshine! Running! Playing!

These are what kids love and sadly, an unethical contractor for a playground at Ideal Child Development Center (NAYEC certified) has taken these simple things away from the kids. This contractor started the work, got paid for most of the project, and stopped the work without notice and has not been able to be reached for the last four months.

The estimates from other contractors to take over the playground project is $6,000 over the remaining budget for the playground. We are hoping to raise this amount to finish the playground.

About Us: Ideal has been providing quality childcare for baby and kids for 40 years in the Petworth neighborhood of Washington, DC.

“Our friend, nightlife guy, and one of the co-owners of Costa Brava in Bloomingdale Doug Brown passed away over the weekend. On Saturday from 5pm – 10pm and on Sunday from 12pm – 5pm Costa Brava in Bloomingdale is doing a memorial for him and donating all the proceeds to the Brown Family. I think there’s a lot of people that liked him and would want to stop by.”
