This Saturday, vegan comedian Steve-O of MTV’s Jackass and Wildboyz and ABC’s Dancing With the Stars will host a benefit for The Kindness Collective, an organization that works with shelters to accommodate the companion animals of domestic-abuse survivors along with the victims themselves. Steve-O will be signing copies of his autobiography, Professional Idiot: A Memoir, as well as meeting and taking photos with fans at Busboys and Poets in Washington, DC. The Kindness Collective “works at the intersection of human and animal welfare,” according to its website, and seeks to help the approximately 40 percent of domestic-abuse victims who are afraid to leave their violent environments out of concern for the fate of their companion animals.
