Being Citybroke is about perspective. It’s about seeing glitter in the gutter and a sense of humor when life is giving you everything you don’t exactly want and you’re hanging on for a dream that you sometimes can’t remember.

donate. Your $400 - and you "get one" of the computers - is tax deductible. I think there is a good chance I object to this, BUT I suppose if you can right off paying to attend a white tie gala you ought to be able to write off a $200 computer.
