Thanks so much for all your help. Please keep it coming. The retweets have helped big time too. We're receiving more emails from those we're helping to feed along with some cool pictures. Jackie of Blue America has taken over as our purchasing manager on this fundraiser so we can make sure the pizzas and whatever else is needed gets shipped or delivered in a timely manner since it's become a pretty intense job right now. We've so far bought dinner for Seattle, Boston, New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco. Let us know where you guys are and what you're doing. We'll bring the pies!
If you'd like to buy the occupiers some nosh, here's the account we've set up:
All amounts accepted and they all help tremendously!
Here's a few emails I've received:
Photo of people eating pizza you contributed at OccupySF at Union Square in San Francisco Oct 01, 2011. Thanks for what you're doing. Those pizzas are very much appreciated all over the country.
Dear Crooks & Liars, I was at Occupy Boston’s initial protest on Friday night, Sept. 30. Your organization delivered a bunch of pizzas to us and I want to thank you! A very simple gesture, but with high impact that did not go unnoticed. We were all hungry, having come right from work or school and just seeing that another organization was behind us and supporting us added to our resolve and sense of purpose. I will tell you that while we were there, truck drivers and other work vehicles were beeping their horns in support as they drove by. I truly believe this is just the beginning and, hopefully, we can turn our country around.
Just sending thanks from OccupySF. I went to the General Assembly yesterday and today and both times your pizza donations were mentioned and applauded. It's a small but growing and committed group down there. Your support is very much so appreciated.
Hi Crooks & Liars community,
I just got back to my apartment from the Occupy Boston camp and I wanted to let you know how much the pizzas were appreciated. I don't think you guys understand how happy they made us – they were like mana from heaven. Let me explain, we had a large tray of lentils and a large tray of rice for dinner tonight, but by the time General Assembly was finishing up all of this food had been finished. Your pizzas arrived mere minutes before the conclusion of General Assembly, as if on schedule. The pizza delivery actually saved Occupy Boston from having to dip into our supply of non-perishable items, for which we are glad.
While I don't have the authority to speak for the entire community (I don't think anyone does), I would still like to pass along how grateful we were/are for the amazing donation!
Thank-you on behalf of those of us who weren't even there!!
Thanks for your support.
Please keep the donations coming because you've helped to lift the spirits of those protesting around the country.
