Eat pizza for a good cause today

January 28th, 2010 · 40 Comments

Local chain Pagliacci Pizza has just announced it will be donating 100 percent of the proceeds from all of its locations today, Thursday, January 28, to the Red Cross Haiti Relief Fund.

According to the owners, they decided to help those in Haiti after overwhelming company-wide support for a fundraising project. They wrote on their blog,

I, like all of you, have witnessed the news footage from Haiti over the past few weeks. Total devastation. You can’t help but be moved by the images in the press. As I was deliberating what we should do as a company, several of our employees had similar thoughts. Devesh Kumar, a driver from Miller Delivery Kitchen, was the first to approach me about what Pagliacci could do as a company. The whole Sand Point Delivery Kitchen crew talked about donating their tips to aid relief efforts. Jason Cheung, the University Pizzeria General Manager, sent out an email to all of our managers asking if their crew was interested in donating tips for a day and if Pagliacci would match their donations. Our crew really wanted to help and so did I.

In addition to donating today’s proceeds, Pagliacci will also be matching all of their employee contributions to the fund and working with their vendors to encourage a donation of the food and packaging used today.

Pagliacci has 21 locations throughout Seattle, including the Magnolia/Interbay pick up and delivery spot at 1614 West Dravus.  They will be open from 5 to 11p.m. today. (Photo courtesy of Pagliacci Pizza via Flickr)

    We ordered tonight. And I think it would be great if customers would make their own donation directly to the Red Cross or Haiti relief charity of their choice, in the same amount as their Pagliacci tab. Or whatever they can afford, to double the impact of Pagliacci's effort.

    Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.
