#PreciousGoods Washington, D.C. | Monthly Care Package Assembly Mixer

#PreciousGoods Washington, D.C. | Monthly Care Package Assembly Mixer
Event on 2016-09-25 18:00:00
#PreciousGoods Can you imagine being on your cycle and not having access to the items you need to manage it? While many of us may cringe at that thought, it is an unfortunate, recurring reality for many young girls and women who aren’t in a financial position to purchase feminine hygiene products. The Black Pearl Project’s goal is to ease this burden for as many of our sisters as possible through #PreciousGoods, our primary initiative in which we collect donations of feminine hygiene products and distribute them to women in need. The three key parts of this initiative are the product drive, assembly mixers, and care package distribution. Product Drive As this is an ongoing initiative, we accept (and appreciate) donations on a rolling basis. Specifically, we ask for packages of individually wrapped tampons, pads, and panty liners. If you are unable to attend one of our mixers but would still like to donate, please contact us to make arrangements. While it is preferred that you donate the listed items, we’re also happy to accept monetary donations via PayPal or Venmo. Assembly Mixers Volunteers are a huge part of #PreciousGoods as we need help putting care packages together. We’re constantly growing and expanding to new cities so please check the main events page to see if there’s a mixer coming up near you! The assembly mixers are also a great opportunity for you to meet other like-minded women and make new friends. After all, sisterhood is one of the cornerstones of The Black Pearl Project! Care Package Distribution The care packages are distributed over the week following a mixer. They will be given directly to homeless women, as well as to those currently living in shelters and group homes that we work with. While specific distribution methods and locations may vary by city, we always want to ensure the care packages are given to the women that need them most. If you are aware of an individual or organization that is in need of our help and is located in an area that we currently service, please contact us directly. Questions? Want to help? If you have any questions or would like to play a role in this initiative, please visit our contact page and fill out the form, or contact us directly at hello@theblackpearlproject.org.

Final act of the Shamrock Festival at the RFK Stadium Fairgrounds in Washington, D.C.

Despite the cold, despite the rain, despite the crowds, and despite the long haul just to get a bite to eat or a drink: the crowd turned out en masse for Flogging Molly, and there was certainly energy in the air.

However, mirroring the quality of their beer, the Bud Light Stage seemed to have some audio problems. With almost every song, the microphones totally cut out and the audience was left with only the sounds of themselves. Furthermore, as far as the band could tell: they were still on. So they kept playing, leaping, and moving all about… it was like watching Flogging Molly mime their songs.

They did catch on a couple times that the sound was giving out, but the technicians seemed unable to do a thing to fix it… even their top songs such as "Drunken Lullabies" and "Rebels of the Sacred Heart" cut out; and to add insult to injury… their last song of the set (and the last song of the entire Shamrock Festival) cut out.

Bravo Flogging Molly, of what we could hear; but ouch to DC, Bud, and the fans.
