BENEFITING: LAURAS HOUSE
EVENT DATE: Jun 11, 2013
We decided to eat pancakes for charity, because SOMEONE had to. Pete and Bill, co-hosts of Scientific Podcast Goes Boink, are attempting to spend 24 straight hours at Denny's, consuming all-you-can-eat pancakes. We are setting up streaming video and livetweeting and liveblogging the event. But we want to do it for a good cause.
To that end, we are partnering with Laura's House, a nonprofit based out of Orange County that is dedicated to changing social beliefs, attitudes and the behaviors that perpetuate domestic violence while creating a safe space in which to empower individuals and families affected by abuse. Laura's House also offers a 24/7 hotline and they provide services to men, women, children, the elderly population, LGBT community and teens.
