A Jubilee! A Rolling Jubilee! Saturday, March 23rd
Multiply your money and help each other climb out of debt
Here is a short and sweet explanation of what this event is a part of and also why it is necessary. Please take a look!
This is an all ages family-friendly party. There will be free food and snacks for everyone who attends.
There will also be finely crafted home-brewed beer available by donation, with funds going straight to freeing someone from the shackles of debt (brewed by some of the finest award-winning home-brewers in Buffalo!).
There will be a small presentation on the nature of debt and how it works and we encourage you to talk about how debt has effected you or your loved ones. There is no need to be ashamed of debt, we all have it so lets break the silence and have a healthy conversation about what we can do about it.
There will be musical entertainment from two great Buffalo artists:
GRIFFIN and Women Studies
The donation at the door is on a sliding scale of $5-30 (give what you can). Remember that every dollar we raise will get multiplied! There will also be some films available to watch on the subject of debt.
But most of all this is a party so come ready to have fun!
