Can Twitter Buy a Stove?

So the lovely Jodi (aka karmicevolution) and I had a meeting today at ROOF to clear up some final details with our event. We're happy to say that things are moving along swimmingly, we're so excited!

During the course of the meeting Jodi asked Katie, the wonderful and exuberant Program Manager at ROOF if there is anything the shelter needs that we can help them with. Jokingly, Katie tells us their stove died yesterday. Now ROOF runs a program called The Lunchbox where they provide catering for meetings that teaches their kids skills in food preparation at the same time. Along with dinners, special events and other things, a stove in this shelter is a necessity. In unison, we tell her "We can probably do that!"

Fast forward 2 hours and about 20 tweets later, Jodi and I were off to City Appliance in Cambridge who provided us with a very nice refurbished gas stove at a great price.

So thanks Twitter, for once again stepping up to the challenge and helping us meets the needs of this wonderful agency.  The stove will be delivered tomorrow afternoon and once again, the kids at ROOF will be preparing and eating hot meals.
