Totally inspired and a little flabbergasted that we got this done. Over $1400 in ONE DAY. Coordinating with Page & the rest of the gang at the Old Soldiers' Home for grill and beef delivery. Expect photos and a full run-down in the coming days. If you're in the DC area, let me know if you want to come grill. I've been told that we should also bring our fishing poles.

You guys are the best. Thanks for your generosity.

UPDATE: I can't believe I didn't think of this - but we gotta get a cover, some tools, and a supply of propane. Hate to move the goalposts, but here we go: $1400! I KNOW that we can get this done.

Right after selling my used grill on craigslist, I got this email:


I am a Veteran, living at the Armed Forces Retirement Home here in DC (Old Soldiers' Home-  https://www.afrh.gov/afrh/wash/washcampus.htm ). Though they serve three meals a day, some of us love a grilled steak or burger. I am a young 64, but the average age is 88, with a couple of centenarians resident.

Would you consider donating your grill? I am here because of my lack of money. I could pay $50, but would love to have a few bucks for meat, and keep the gas bottles full!

Thanks,
Page

Let's get serious, folks.  They don't need my old grill.  They need this bad boy (Cook's Illustrated's top-rated gas grill).  They also need a summer's worth of red meat. (Thinking the grill bundle would suit them just fine.  It's $725).  The total for a new grill and a freezer full of beef will be ~$1200.  That means that only 120 people have to give $10.  No doubt that Memorial Day weekend is one of the great grilling and beer drinking holidays that we have - take a minute to give a little to those that we should be thinking of.  

It's not the world's most serious problem. But it's a solvable one. Let's do this.  

UPDATE: You guys have all been so awesome, we're gonna stretch our goal so that we can get a grill cover, some tools, and a supply of propane.  $1400...IT'S ON.
