Aiden and Louis Ardine Walk Across America for Restaurant Workers
Starting May 1, 2021, brothers Aiden and Louis Ardine are walking across America from New Jersey to California, to raise funds and awareness about the ongoing needs of restaurant workers and small businesses impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Former bartenders themselves, they aim to do some good for their peers in the restaurant industry. They’re just two brothers sleeping in a tent for five months, documenting and sharing their experiences from the road, and trying to stay alive. You can follow their journey on unmutedstories.org/walking-america or on Instagram @ArdinesXAmerica.
The names and email addresses of the donors to this campaign will be shared with the campaign organizers so that they may reach out and give thanks personally. Donors who want to give to the Crisis Relief Fund without sharing their information with the Ardine campaign organizers should do so here. RWCF donor information is never shared with other outside entities and is never used for commercial purposes.
