How You Can Make a Difference in Someone’s Life This Holiday Season

Alexander

There are a number of us here at D Magazine who are partial to downtown’s City Tavern, which is a few blocks from our HQ. Okay, maybe I’m just talking about me and Zac. Anyway, it’s a great spot. Ate lunch there today. Which is when I heard about the plight of young Charles Alexander, whose picture you see here. His mom, Alicia, is a bartender at City Tavern. Charles was born November 28. Last week, Alica found him in his crib, not breathing. He’s at Children’s and is on a ventilator. Alicia and her husband, Brian, have been at the hospital pretty much nonstop since their boy fell ill. As you might imagine, Christmas is going to be tough on them. They have limited insurance coverage, and neither parent has been able to work. Alicia’s co-workers at City Tavern have set up a GoFundMe page for Charles. Pitch in, if you’re inclined.
