Our pals at the Curbside Chronicle host a Christmas Party each year at the Homeless Alliance, and we had the pleasure of sending some pizza their way. If you haven't heard of it yet, Curbside employs homeless individuals to sell a magazine they edit and develop as a nonprofit. This magazine is sold for $2 on curbs and corners around the city, and allows these people to earn a living selling a product instead of panhandling. Through Curbside they have helped dozens of people obtain their own housing and get off the streets. If you ever see someone slinging magazines in a green apron, you should definitely send a few dollars their way and check the magazine out!
