Seattle resident Monica Mendoza was making a donation to NetHope, wishing she could give more, when the idea came to her. She started calling local restaurants and asking if they’d be willing to donate a portion of profits earned on Sunday, January 24 to relief efforts in Haiti. (Restos can pick NetHope or the charity of their choice.)
Each restaurant will decide individually how much it can contribute, Mendoza says Dinette on Capitol Hill has committed to giving away 10 percent, while Belltown’s Restaurant Zoe is offering up 25. Quinn’s, Le Gourmand, and La Rustica are also on board according to Mendoza—we’ll keep the list updated as more places sign on. Meantime, feel free to lobby your favorite eatery to join in, restaurants should contact [email protected] to get on the list.
