Lets Do Some Good In This World

So, we are on the heels of 3 years of Hipster Brewfus, and it's pretty exciting. I appreciate you all sticking with me as I've evolved from thinking people cared about my beer reviews, to more important social commentary, and to my own thoughts as I evolved as a dude in the beer game.

It has indeed been a great 3 years, and I hope to continue being here for another 3 more. Once we hit that, we will re-evaluate just what the hell I am doing.

And that brings us to today. Today I want to do something good for the world, and we have been given a great opportunity. You see, when I decided to start this whole bloggy thing, there were two people instrumental in my decision to start writing. The first was my wife, and the second is someone none of you know. His name is RC, and he opened my eyes to a lot of different things that beer had to offer. he has supported me both vocally, and with sending me countless bottles of amazing stuff, including a wedding present that kind of blew my mind.

So today I ask you for help, readers and friends. RC is running in his second Chicago Marathon because he is a glutton for punishment, but also wants to help families in need. He is a representative of Team RHMC (Ronald McDonald House Charities), and is looking to raise $1,500, and I think we can help him.

So here is where you come in. Donate. Please. As little or as much as you can afford. For every donation, your name goes into a hat, and at the end of it all, there will be a drawing for some really great bottles of beer.

The link for donations is here: http://support.rmhc.org/site/TR/TeamRMHC-ChicagoMarathon/General?px=1010646&pg=personal&fr_id=1110

You will be helping family in need, and potentially win some beer that I bet your ass can't get anywhere else.

So how does this all work?

You click the link and fill out the information. On that screen there is an option to fill out your name and leave a note. Do that. if you are anonymous, we have no way of knowing it's you, and unfortunately you can not be considered.

Simple, right?

Once you've made your donation, just let me know with a comment on this blog post WITH A WAY TO CONTACT YOU, or if you prefer it to be a little private, you can e-mail me personally: Jake@HipsterBrewfus.com

In October, we will do the drawing, and BAM, you get beer AND the feeling that you did some good for strangers.

Prepare to see this a lot on my social media as well, because I will be sharing it frequently. This is important to me, and I look forward to your support!

Hipster Brewfus.
