Angels Meet For Lunch

Every so often a group of angels from Open Table gather at New Delhi Restaurant with Ranjan playing the role of Charlie. They talk about how to solve the problems of the world, where their energy will do the most good and what the next mission should be. Today they decided to keep it simple: Enjoy a delicious lunch, some wonderful company and continue the mission of supporting Compassionate Chefs Cafe with a spontaneous $100 donation. Thanks so much, Denise, Amanda and Chiara!
