Our Iowa Chive Chapter was one of the very first Chive Chapters and I hear they are throwing an abolute rager on the 16th of August. If you order the shirts by Tuesday, you should receive them by party time.
A healthy portion of the profits from the Iowa KCCO will be donated to their favorite charity, YESS Emergency Youth Shelter. A few months ago, Chive Charities donated $50,000 to help construct an entire new wing on the YESS shelter. Read that story here.
Let's do it:
Iowa KCCO's available for men and women RIGHT HERE!
Chive On Minnesota, Tennessee, and Washington are also available RIGHT HERE!

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).
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.

*As always, this party will be paid for by sponsorships and ticket sales. No money from Chive Charities will be used.
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.
P.O. Box 212
Foxboro, MA, 02035
