Silent Auction items that might be of interest to you all.

Hi all! So I met this awesome lady last week who works for Pine Street Inn, a pretty prolific charity that caters to the homeless in and around Boston. Most of the people there are just kind of ignored in society (be it for mental illness, alcoholism, drug addiction, whatever you can think of) and they won't turn anyone away.

Right now they are having a silent auction online with some pretty awesome items up for bid (for the Boston area), including a $50 gift card to Brookline Booksmith and a meal with Arthur Golden (yeah, the same one that wrote Memoirs of a Geisha. That Arthur Golden).

Here's a link if any of you are interested!


  1. It's awesome that you're posting about these issues!!!

  2. Thanks! I met the woman at a Bible study, and she told us all about the Inn (sort of like a shelter). They really do take anyone, except children under the age of 18 (it's a wet shelter, so it might not be safe for children). That said, they do find places for families and younger teens.
