Buy A Beer For Workers Affected By Gov’t Shutdown
It is a stressful time for government workers in the U.S. Because of the partial government shutdown, thousands of workers are either not working at all or working without a paycheck. Here's a way you can help. There is a brand new website that allows you to buy a government worker in the nation's capital a beer from anywhere in the country.
According to WIVB, a website called Pay It Furloughed allows you to go online and donate to a beer fund. That beer fund will then pay for federal employees and government contractors to have a local craft brew.
All you have to do is click the Fund A Beer button on the website, then choose a beer and how many you want to donate. That will go to one of the four breweries in the D.C. area where the government workers can enjoy a free beer.
The website founders are hoping to expand this idea into other markets soon.
