To my great joy, the local brewery, The Bergschrund (a Northwest Peaks venue), also shared my vision and so we've come together to form:
Horror Hops and Helping: B Film Movie Night With A Purpose!
Ultimately, the goal of this venture is to provide a fun evening for everyone and a some time and space to focus on a local or international charity group. People are welcome to donate to the charity if they wish, or just sit back and enjoy the show (there will be cash donation prizes though!)
So if you're in the Seattle, Washington area then please come on by for a great evening!
Below is more information about month's movie and charity:
"Heifer International's mission is to work with communities to end world hunger and poverty and to care for the Earth.
Dan West was a farmer from the American Midwest and member of the Church of the Brethren who went to the front lines of the Spanish Civil War as an aid worker. His mission was to provide relief, but he soon discovered the meager single cup of milk rationed to the weary refugees once a day was not enough.
And then he had a thought: What if they had not a cup, but a cow?
That "teach a man to fish" philosophy is what drove West to found Heifer International. And now, nearly 70 years later, that philosophy still inspires our work to end world hunger and poverty throughout the world once and for all."
- How it works:
"We empower families to turn hunger and poverty into hope and prosperity – but our approach is more than just giving them a handout. Heifer links communities and helps bring sustainable agriculture and commerce to areas with a long history of poverty. Our animals provide partners with both food and reliable income, as agricultural products such as milk, eggs and honey can be traded or sold at market.
When many families gain this new sustainable income, it brings new opportunities for building schools, creating agricultural cooperatives, forming community savings and funding small businesses."
