The Oregon Public House, the nation's very first nonprofit pub, just opened for business Friday afternoon. The pub's motto is, "Have a pint, change the world." You can think of the pub as a fundraising department for local charities. All of the pub's profits go directly to eight local organizations listed on a board behind the bar. Drinkers help decide which charity gets their money. The pub expects to be funneling as much as $10,000 a month to the charities and its owners hopes this way of giving back catches on in other communities across the country.
