Buy someone a beer this weekend!

As #RAKit weeks gives way to #RAKit weekend, all signs point to the fact that you’ll be spending a little bit of time in the bar (I know I will). Buying a drink for someone is an easy gesture, but one of the most satisfying RAKs you can make. So in the spirit of the giving this week, we are calling our Chivers to pony up for someone at the bar. Be it a beer, a cocktail, or a shot, just put it on your tab for a friend, or a deserving stranger. 

As you can tell by the posts this week, we love to hear stories about #RAKit week in action, so if you feel so inclined, let us know about it. Post your RAK on Twitter or Instagram tagged with #RAKit or you can just submit it straight to us right here.

Now go out there this weekend and make someone’s night (or day, we don’t judge).

2nd Annual Green Gala is a Masquerade Ball!

The 2nd Annual Chive Charities  Green Gala will be held in Austin, TX on Saturday, November 15, 2014. Last year’s inaugural event was one of the most inspiring gatherings of misfits ever. It was a magical evening where our Green Members partied with Chive Charities' past recipients, danced, made friends with Chivers from around the world, and shed some tears when we unveiled this Chive Charities video. Oh yeah, and we took a lot of shots.

This year's theme will be a Masquerade Ball. Per tradition, you are welcome to dress in superhero costume. This party is only open to our Eligible Green Members. There's still plenty of time to sign up. Attendees will get the chance to meet some of their favorite Chive Charities' recipients, including Jaiden, Michael Sexton, Melissa Smith, Billy Wynne, and more.

KCCO,

John n' Leo

*As always, this party will be paid for by sponsorships and ticket sales. No money from Chive Charities will be used.

Young boy with inoperable tumor wishes for birthday cards…

Last October Danny Nickerson was diagnosed with a tumor that is traditionally one of the most chemotherapy-resistant. From November to December, Danny endured 33 radiation treatments and dropped out of kindergarden. Danny became lonely without other children around to play with. But then on Easter he received some cards, wishing him well. Danny's mother said, "For some reason Danny LOVED seeing his name on the packages."

But the packages tapered off after Easter and finally stopped all together. 

The tiny clip from the Plainville News has been swirling around theCHIVE since early this morning. Danny Nickerson is about to turn 6 years-old and his one wish is to have people send him a birthday card, that's all. 

You'll also notice on the clip that, so far, Danny has received 40 packages. It's RAKit week and I had this vision in my head that if I brought this to the Chivers... maybe that tiny P.O. box in Foxboro, Massachusetts might suddenly become an postal avalanche of birthday cards and well-wishes. And I believe that's just what we're about to do.

Danny's birthday is in two days, and I really don't think it's of any consequence if some cards arrive a little late. Danny's address is below. If you feel like doing a little more I'm told Danny loves Legos and Super Mario toys. I like him already.

Join us this afternoon for BBQ RAK’s at theCHIVE!

Today when I arrived at theCHIVE, the famous food philanthropists, Triple G Relief, were cooking up breakfast for the entire Chive office. Then they set up a mimosa bar and we got after it. So now we're all full and drunk and we're just getting warmed up today.

Many of you remember Seth Ringley and Blake Giles. The BBQ gurus who created Triple G Relief dropped everything and to spend two months helping to feed victims of the F5 tornado that ripped through Oklahoma City last year.

Today at 2pm in Austin we're joining forces once again with the Triple G Relief boys for a special happening outside the new Chive HQ and we're inviting all of you to join us for a free BBQ lunch at theCHIVE. There will also be some very worthy charities there we'd like you to meet: 

Operation Blue Santa will be there as well as Austin Pets Alive! and all we ask is you give a small donation to help make Christmas a special time for underprivileged kids and maybe help get some cats and dogs some much-needed food.

Austin Pets Alive! is burning thru almost 6,000 lbs. of dog and cat food every month to sustain all the animals at this no-kill shelter. They could use our help and something tells me there will be a big check from us here at theCHIVE waiting for you when you get here tomorrow :)

Operation Blue Santa was the recipient of a $50,000 grant from Chive Charities last year and they are ramping up efforts to go even bigger this Christmas after the Chivers helped Blue Santa bring Christmas to over 4,000 families last year. I mean, it is Half Christmas after all.  

Most importantly - if you don't have $5 to donate, don't sweat it, just come by and experience some great BBQ and meet theCHIVE crew. The BBQ will be in the cul-de-sac next to theCHIVE HQ. Look for the firetrucks and Mac trying to adopt all the cats.

Join us tomorrow for BBQ lunch at theCHIVE!

I know it's late but we're going hard this week so there will be a lot of posts beyond the regular hours. 

It's #RAKit week so we're literally RAK'ing racks (of ribs) tomorrow.
