Trailblazing pioneers are breaking down the boundaries between charity and private enterprise. The days of business loans, collateral, and equity stakes are over. In today's world, a for-profit business can just ask for donations that never have to be repaid, and pocket the returns that couldn't have been made without those donations.
The owner of The Painted Lady is one of these brave souls, crushing the old barriers, and ushering in a new paradigm . He's asking for donations to keep the bar open after they got themselves in some legal trouble.
Not everyone understands this new age we're living in. They foolishly still believe that privately owned businesses should bear the risks themselves if they want to keep the profits during the good times. What year do you think you're living in, 2007?
Come out to the Painted Lady on Saturday, and help this business/charity stay alive.
