Couples Who Care
One night. One hour. One hundred dollars. Once a quarter, couples--and singles--meet at a bar, a restaurant, or someone’s home on a weeknight for one hour. Guests are encouraged to put the name of their favorite local charity in a hat. Then, three organizations are drawn. A representative from each organization selected has five minutes to plead their case. Afterward, everyone casts their vote. Each member or couple writes a check to the charity chosen each quarter and commits $400 a year, whether they’re in attendance for the meeting or not.
