The weekend might not be what it used to be, but still, you did it! We did it! We all made it through another week together and that’s the only thing we can do, stay safe and take everything one week (or day, or hour) at a time.
BYT makes our living off of things that are currently non-existent as a source of income (arts, events, arts and event advertising). A portion of your support will also go directly to both We Are Family DC and No Kid Hungry, to help care for our most vulnerable community members. Every little helps right now.
