Our friends are having a party!

Street Sense is a great friend of ours, and (as you can see below) they're having a silent auction! For those of you unfamiliar, Street Sense is a newspaper that deals with poverty issues through the lens of those most affected while simultaneously allowing their homeless and formerly homeless vendors to gain cash and work experience. It's a really smart model, and I've spoken with a number of people for whom being a Street Sense vendor was the first step in a transition out of homelessness. I could go on and on, or you can go to the reception and chat with the staff personally!
