We're trying to get better at getting right to the point in our post titles, folks. This should last all of ten minutes, but it's important in this case to pay attention. Iron Horse Taproom heard about a story from the Texas Children's Hospital where all of the DVDs from the chemo "Infusion Room" were stolen. They want to make that right. You can help. Facebook, as it does so often, explains:
Hey Folks. Starting tonight and going until the end of the month, we will trade you any beer $6 or less for a dvd in playable condition. Limit 2 per person per visit. Make sure the movies are PG or G. Some dickhead stole all the dvd's from the Texas Children's Hospital and I know craft beer drinkers won't stand for that kind of crap. https://www.facebook.com/laylagracefoundation/posts/470027279695024#913sf
While the cancer patients are receiving their inpatient chemo at Texas Children's Hospital, they watch movies in the "Infusion Room". A few days ago, some heartless person stole all the DVD's. We're collecting DVD's to take up to the hospital. Used DVD's are perfectly fine, they just need to be G-Rated. If you'd like to make a donation, please mail them to: Layla Grace Foundation 12320 Barker Cypress Rd Suite 600 #264 Cypress, Tx 77429 We'll be collecting them through the end of September.
You heard the man! Get those extra copies of the Lion King and Pee Wee Goes to Aruba in to Iron Horse and get some beer out of it. Hooray beer and children's DVD.
UPDATE: Iron Horse's page has been updated:
So it looks like the internet got a little ahead of itself and we got swept along.
From the Texas Children’s Hospital’s Facebook page:
Turns out the theft of DVDs wasn’t really a theft. Sometimes a few DVDs just go missing, and it’s not that big a deal. BUT! That doesn’t mean we are stepping back from our original effort to help out kids through the healing power of beer. Our offer still stands, only now we’re going to give the movies to the Children’s National Medical Center at the Washington Hospital Center. I just checked with them and they said they are more than happy to accept new or GENTLY used DVDs, so long as they are rated PG or G.
So please feel free come by and get yourself a great beer for a great cause.
