your Wikli-fix: thank you

If Columbia Citizens stopped to count our blessings… well now, that could go on for quite awhile. So let's start out by thanking you for all you bring to the neighborhood. Enjoy the cornucopia of events, projects, and assorted offerings your neighbors have shared through the site.

This one's a bi-Wikli. Let's take the next one off to thaw that turkey.

Rainier Valley Food Bank rip-off celebration

A year ago burglars stole $2000 worth of food from the Rainier Valley Food Bank just a few days before Thanksgiving. The southend community responded by leading efforts to raise funds and restock shelves. Within three days, the community had raised over $70,000 in cash and $30,000 in food.

Join us on Saturday, November 20th, 2010 as we spend a day commemorating this outstanding community support by rolling up our sleeves & giving back to an organization that is the lifeline for so many of our families. Two shifts are available, 7am to 11am and 11am to 3pm.

Sitting in Circles with Rich White Girls

At times funny, biting and somber Sitting in Circles with Rich White Girls: Memoirs of a Bulimic Black Boy is the groundbreaking and crushingly honest reclamation story of a fat, gay, bulimic, black boy raised by white parents and struggling to find beauty, acceptance and safe spaces — in a world short on all.

With playful humor and sharp observance, Sitting in Circles… takes audiences on an intense and insightful journey, along the way unpacking the mother lode of identity construction and self-preserving mechanisms. Yet, with the performer's greatest gift being the ability to find playfulness in the midst of grief these stories are funnier than they are tragic. Ultimately demonstrating how even the most painful of experiences can be reclaimed, transformed, and accepted for what they are: the building blocks of our unique identities.
