The Pourhouse Café is a non-profit coffee shop in Bloomington that sends 100% of their tips and profits (not yet to the profit stage) to global and local social service agencies.
Since opening in 2008 they have sent over $50,000 in tips all over the world to groups like Nyaka Aides Orphans School in Uganda, Aqua Viva Children's Home in Quatemala, His Eyes Clinic/Mission in Honduras, backpacks and school supplies to Monroe County children, Camp Kassam Brown County and many others.
An interesting thing that happened last fall when their tip jar was stolen. A reporter from the Herald Tribune heard about it and wrote a story which sparked a lot of interest from the community. Several people who had never been in the cafe' dropped in just to put money in the tip jar. The AP picked up the story and a local Indy station came and interviewed them about the outpouring of goodness as a result of the theft.
Employees at some Indianapolis fast food restaurants will take part in a 100-city strike Thursday morning.
Police dispatchers in Hancock County say two medical helicopters were called to the scene of a crash late Wednesday night.
SWAT members were called to the city's northwest side Wednesday night.
