Shop in Ballard on Black Friday to benefit local charities

This Friday, more than 30 local businesses will be donating a portion of their sales to local charities.

The program is called Ballard Gives Back, in which local merchants are dedicating to help support specific charities on Black Friday (Nov. 29). The event started in 2013, in part to encourage people to shop locally.

“’Shop local’ is not just a catch phrase, it’s a powerful tool by which communities can connect, prosper and empower others,” Legh Burns, co-owner of re-souL said in a release. “Seattle has a strong, independent mindset and there is no better example than the businesses of Ballard coming together to spread the message.”

The full list of businesses and the charities they’ll be supporting is available here.

You appear to have some bizarre fetish towards the homeless and should seek mental help for it.

Too funny! The real fetish is people like you who enable and seem to just love the itinerants amongst us. So merely disagreeing with you means we have a “fetish”? LOL. Can we see your badge Mr. thought cop? Just own the mess you helped create here in Seattle. Pointing that finger means there are 3 more aimed right back at YOU.

Nah, it’s that I don’t have nothing but contempt for people that have hit rock bottom.

But keep telling yourself that insulting the homeless on a neighborhood blog is a solution to the problem!

Homeless people seek out help and get it through the multitude of social programs already in place. What we have here throughout the counties are drug and alcohol addicted vagrants that want no part of society except what is free or stolen.
