From a press release:
“Saturday, December 3rd, Steve-O, the star of MTV’s Jackass and Wildboyz and ABC’s Dancing with the Stars will host a fundraiser to benefit The Kindness Collective. Guests of the event will be able to meet Steve-O, take a photo with the star, and have a copy of his book signed.
The December 3rd event will occur from 1 to 2pm in the loft of Busboys and Poets, located at 1025 5th St. NW DC. Free tickets may be obtained at http://guestli.st/78474. An $8 donation is requested.
Donations will benefit The Kindness Collective’s work with domestic violence shelters to accommodate survivors’ pets. Up to 40% of domestic violence victims report that they are unable to escape their abusers because they are afraid of what will happen to their pets when they leave. The Kindness Collective hopes to bring an end to the abuse by permitting victims of domestic violence to seek safety along with their pets.”
