Prescott Freethinkers' Thursday Night Dinner

"In order to raise awareness and inspire empathy around the brutal conditions and dehumanizing effects of chronic homelessness, a program volunteer, Seráh Blain, will live without shelter in Phoenix until we raise $56,310 ($2 for every individual who experienced homelessness in Arizona last year) supporting Madison Street Veterans Association—an amount which must be raised before Ms. Blain will end her experience."

This week, rather than going out on the town, we ask that you donate the money you might normally spend on a dinner out to the Madison Street Veteran's Association to aid them in continuing their women's shelter program. In place of the dinner, we will be having a potluck in Karin's home.

You can donate online at the website above. If you wish to donate via check, you can find the address at the website above or bring it to the potluck to be mailed by Karin.

The Prescott Freethinkers meet each Thursday for dinner out! Kids welcome. Great conversations and occasional antics ensue... See you Thursday!

Please RSVP here by 4 pm on dinner nights or call Cori at[masked] so that we can let them know how many people will be coming.

    I had just meant to join up yesterday, but somehow (???) I got signed up to attend this dinner. As I had planned on going into Presskit today, I figured I'd just go and meet some of y'all, but my plans for a town run have changed to Friday and so I'm cancelling my attendence here. I'll catch up with y'all later... Cya! ;')

    I had to pull an all-nighter for work last night and I can't possibly make something and/or driver there tonight. I'll try to add something to my existing donations to-date for Seráh's fundraiser tomorrow when I get paid.

      Drive not driver. I'm so tired.

    Great way to raise awareness for this worthy cause, Karin. Happy to donate and come show my support! Can I bring something to contribute to dinner as well?

    As of 9/4/2013 she has raised over $20,000. I encourage everyone to read Serah's blog on the website Karin posted.
    Looking forward to visiting with everyone, talking about the fundraiser and sending some more support their way. See you soon!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
