Servers at Original Joe's will be donating 100 percent of their tips to STAND Against Sexual Assault (STAND ASA).

The team will do so on Giving Tuesday (Nov. 28).

"We envision a world free of victim blaming and shaming to end sexual violence. We promote healing through holistic healing workshops, including self-defense, art therapy, fit therapy, equine therapy, yoga, and rage workshops. That is exactly what the donations go towards," explained Founder of STAND ASA and server at Orginal Joe's, Erin Brassard.

Giving Tuesday is a global movement that is meant to inspire and unite people to do good on a single day each year. 

A goal of $3000 raised is what Brassard would like to see. Original Joe's will also be matching the donations made by the servers of up to $500. 

If you cannot make it down to Original Joe's that night there are other ways to donate as well. 

"You can donate online and anyone that donates between now and December 10 will receive a 2023 Christmas ornament that we will send to them."
