Ballard businesses to support local charities with Black Friday proceeds

If you’re planning to brave the Black Friday frenzy today, you can support some local charities and initiatives by shopping in Ballard.

More than 30 businesses are participating in “Ballard Gives Back“, in which each business will donate a part of Black Friday proceeds to local charities.

Here’s a list of the participating stores and the charities they’ll be supporting today:

Traditionally, the Saturday after Thanksgiving is Small Business Saturday, so most Ballard stores will extend their deals through the weekend.

Hey, I have an idea: maybe we should DONATE THE ENTIRE CITY TO JUNKIE HOBOS. Oh wait, we DID THAT ALREADY. And we already gave everyone free community college, and SANCTUARY CITY schooling for no habla Ingles. We already apologize 24/7 for “muh patriarchy cishet imperialism slavery blah blah” and pay FOR EVERY TAX AND GIBSMEDAT already. We APOLOGIZE for even enforcing the law. So, tell me, what is left? The fillings in my teeth? You want my yogurt shop because you staged some stunt with some social workers and loser dysfunctional parents without BUYING ANYTHING? How about a nice juicy lawsuit because you decided to take a swing at a cop? PATHETIC. Classic Consignment Giving to NW IMMIGRATION RIGHTS PROJECT: thanks for the gangs!

I think we should open up a center for mentally ill people. You’ll be the first we let in.

Are you ok?

This entire region doubles down on stupid each and every election, handing over yet more power and even more $$ to government and what do we get what? Fires burning in our backyards, needles/feces everywhere, rapes, tents abounding, and insanity in general. Yet many are so conditioned to this instability they now can’t see the trees due to that thick forest in their front yards. Are you OK?

Not mentioned here is a pop up at 2611 NW Market. According to their flyer ‘100% of proceeds from donated items goes to Gift for Life and DIFFA,’ both long standing organizations fighting AIDS. Called Wholesale Heaven it has been a pop up around town during the holidays for years–and this year in Ballard. 11a-7p Wed – Sun until Jan 13. Tons of goodies including books, toys, gifts, home accessories and much more—and new things put out each day–Wow!

What’s “AIDS”? Acquired Indigent Deluge Syndrome?
