The generosity of people is AMAZING. This government shutdown is hitting many people in DC, MD and VA so hard, and many have stepped up to help, including celebrity chef Jose Andres, opening a pop-up emergency kitchen to hand out free meals to furloughed government workers.
This incredible story in The Washingtonian caught our eye, where a woman showed up and started giving out $20 bills to workers standing in line at the pop-op eatery for a meal. She gave out over $600 in cash of her own money. Wow. Pay it forward!
