C&L Readers Dig Deep For Protester Pizzas

You guys are amazing! Amato said we'd raise a bunch of money to feed these guys marching for the plight of the 99 percent. I was skeptical. I was wrong. We raised over $1000 in the first two hours. Tons of small donations - $2 or $3 to buy someone

You guys are amazing! Amato said we'd raise a bunch of money to feed these guys marching for the plight of the 99 percent. I was skeptical. I was wrong. We raised over $1000 in the first two hours. Tons of small donations - $2 or $3 to buy someone they've never met a slice. It's humbling. I'm impressed.

So we've expanded our pizza-giving parameters. I talked with the nice folks at Escape from New York Pizza in San Francisco. They're giving us a 15 percent discount on all pizzas delivered to the Bay Area Occupiers. You can call in an order: (415) 421-0700

And then there's Boston. They told me they are camping out in Dewey Park starting tonight at 6pm eastern and they're expecting 1500. The lovely folks at Al Capone's are giving us a special: (tax and tip included) $10 per pizza $30 minimum. You can call in an order there at: (617) 426-1800

Or you can donate to our PayPal all amounts appreciated!

I've called all these places and they have no problems getting the food to the protesters:

Al Capone's in Boston:
(617) 426-1800

Escape from New York Pizza in San Francisco
(415) 421-0700

Liberatos Pizza in New York:
(212) 344-3464

Rocket Pizza in LA:
(213) 687-4992

If there are other cities with sizable protests that need pizza - please email me tinacrooksandliars at gmail.com.

UPDATE: So far we've bought 45 pies for LA, 30 for Boston, 19 in New York and 14 in San Francisco. Thanks again guys!
