It’s that time of year again – I don’t like to bother you guys with my personal projects but this is another one that means a lot to me – and it’s a fight I’m sure you can get behind. If you’re able please give whatever you can and like previous years – anyone who gives $15 or more will get a free PoPville shirt that you can pick up at the shaving event. This year it’s at Boundary Stone again (116 Rhode Island Ave NW) March 13th at 3pm. You can donate to my page here and I’ll bring a bunch of shirts (and tote bags) 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.
