This is our annual Fundraiser! Proceeds Benefit Burners without Borders Chicago and the Community Grant Salon. More on BWB Chicago at The money that is raised goes towards:
-dinner expenses for the Community Grant Salon twice each year
-modest operating costs
-In 2014 we sent money to the Philippines to build their tool library
-2013-present: money is given to small grassroots programs that build and enrich community. 4 chosen small programs from open submissions present in front of a attendees at the salon to be voted to win the $1000 grant, partially awarded that night in cash.
-In 2016, we're considering implementing a "micro loan" system for business-based social good ventures that need capital up front.

BWB will be running two charity collections- please consider bringing items:

**Donate Your Extra Toiletries to CHIditarod**
BWB will be collecting your extra toiletries for Chiditarod this season. Any extra toiletries you have from hotels, samples, slighted used bottles, soap you got from a traveling relative, or other items that could go to help those in need. Chiditarod will be sharing these collected items with homeless shelters, domestic abuse survivors and creating care packages to hand out to those in need on the streets of Chicago.

**Donate Your Used Shoes to Share Your Soles**
We'll be running a collection for your gently worn or new shoes for our friends at Share Your Soles. These shoes may go to people who may have never even owned a pair. It's important that any used shoes are in good condition to respect the dignity of those receiving our shoes. So please: be respectful with your donations, understand that our goal is to provide good, clean shoes to those in need. For example, tennis shoes should include laces and not have holes.
