Helping our friends at Banter – This is a bar in Brooklyn, NY where my daughter lives. Whenever I go there they treat me like royalty. At this time they are no longer getting tips or paychecks. This link will let you help out. This is an example of how you can directly help people in need. If you don’t want to give to them, look for someone in your neighborhood and give if you can. @banterbrooklyn @ValmontGod
