Good morning, 

If you’re looking for a way to help federal workers affected by the government shutdown, here’s your chance to make an impact — with beer.

The website Pay It Furloughed aims to provide “free liquid therapy” to “stressed out federal employees and contractors” who are currently working without pay. 

You can donate craft beer to a furloughed federal worker for $7.50. As of Wednesday afternoon, more than 1,500 beers had been donated.
