Free Coffee If You're Pro-Choice!! Great Glebe Garage Sale :)

Thanks to the lovely folks at Glebe House for hosting our table!

Emily and Jenn showed up before 6:30am. The neighbourhood was already abuzz. Greg helped us hang our huge banner. Denise showed up around 10:00am

The reception we got was overwhelmingly positive. People would come over and say things like, "I don't want coffee, I just wanted to say how happy I am to see you here!". After folks insisted on giving us donations we made a donation jar out of a mangled Bridgehead cup. We used the donations to replenish our supplies (which we started to run out of at about 9:00am) We had dozens of folks asking about Pro-Choice Coalition Ottawa. We invited them to look us up on facebook and google YouTube for our videos.

Over the course of the day we gave out:

400+ cups of coffee

360 Tim Bits

10 packages of cookies

We're gonna do this again next year!
