Help save WEAVE


When I skimmed the WaPo story on WEAVE this weekend I took it to mean that their closing was a done deal. Thanks to DCist I know now that’s not the case – they’re making a pedal to the metal drive to stay open and continue helping needy victims of domestic violence.

They’ve made a good start at SaveWeave, where you can throw them a few bucks to keep their doors open a little longer while they pursue more funding. They promise to return all donations if they don’t reach their goal so you can be sure your money will go towards actually providing services, not just to pay to turn off the lights.

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.

  1. As one of WEAVE’s founders, I know how important WEAVE’s services are for victims of domestic violence in DC and their children. Please do all you can to turn the financial tides and allow WEAVE to stay open!
