Our first instinct was to sit on this so that crappy behavior didn’t negatively impact Thrive DC and the people who rely on them, but we’re just going to hope that the angels of everyone’s better nature are stronger than the snark & jerk angels.
Some of The Real World DC crew will be volunteering at Thrive tonight from 4pm on into the evening, preparing and serving meals for the homeless who Thrive feed every day. If you’re rolling your eyes right now and thinking it’s just a cynical producer-driven publicity stunt, well, SHUT THE HELL UP AND GET OVER YOURSELF.
Personally I don’t care if anyone volunteers or donates out of love, hate, shame, pride, pity, fear, loathing, or because the Flying Spaghetti Monster told them to. Thrive serves people in need and for an evening some of the RWDC cast will be a part of that. Good. If you think they’re just there for publicity and as a stunt then feel free to go to the above links and be a more lasting part of the solution.
