Raging for a cause

By now, most of us are familiar with Yelp, the site that offers user-penned reviews of all manner of businesses and services, from barbers to bail bondsmen. Now 10 months old, the service’s local arm, Yelp Montreal,, is off to a healthy start. Community manager Risa Dickens, who handles the English side of the site’s affairs, is throwing her baby a birthday party this Saturday, with the aim of helping 11 non-profit organizations.
