HALF PINTS OF LOVE 3%
« on: November 08, 2010, 09:06:50 PM »
Little Timmy gets a toy. The family down on their luck gets a meal.
What about the guy stumblin’ in the gutter wondering where his next drink is coming from?

Once again we're stepping up in true Rival Gang fashion and spreading holiday spirit with holiday spirits. It’s time for the 3rd annual “Half Pints Of Love, Hooch For The Homeless Liquor Drive”.

The “Save The Children Foundation” asks for $28 per month to save a child. That’s over $335 per year! How much can those little bastards eat?
We guarantee you it’s not as much as these folks can drink.

For as little as $3 you can help save the sober. Each package consists of a half pint, a few smokes, a couple of snacks and a book of matches neatly stuffed inside of a new pair of tube socks. Last year was a huge success; we gave out over 100 bundles of joy while meeting some very appreciative folks.



Some would ask…“Aren’t you enabling?”
Hey, we’re only enabling someone to enjoy a drink & a smoke with warm dry feet.
It’s not like plenty of us don’t enjoy that on any given Wednesday night.
We’re not trying to give “help”…We’re just trying to give a few folks what they want without having to grovel for it.
It may come across as humorous or condescending, but it’s from the heart.
Some people make sure the trees are lit. We just want to make sure the bums are lit.



We are seeking cash donations as well as half pints, cigarettes and new tube socks.
See any Rival Ganster to contribute. We'll be at the usual Wednesday spot as well as trolling the upcoming events.
Donate $20 or more and receive a commemorative pin (while supplies last).

Use your PayPal account. Send to rivalgang@rivalgang.net

Distribution time and place TBA.
We’ve seen enough zombie movies to think that it may not be a scooter friendly endeavor. Probably better served in a cage or two or three.

Help keep the drunks drunk,
The Rival Gang

I shall put my personal hatred for the homeless on hold for one night. When is this and what can I do to help?
Dear Lord: I don't wanna ask for the help of your wrath, but...

Money sent. I hope i was able to play the paypal game and make sure you guys weren't shorted.
It's not the size of the tool that counts, it's the size of the box you put it in.
