Who knew there would still be people protesting all this time? Seriously? When we started buying solidarity pizzas last week we had no idea we'd still be doing it now. It's mainly thanks to you guys. Over 500 of you have donated over $18,000. We've bought pies for 22 cities totaling more than $13,000 and we're still going. Occupy Wall Street is growing and so...we can't stop now.

Yesterday at Occupy LA they told me that the 36 pizzas we buy them go quick. They said they could use three times that. They are now reporting a tent count of 253. Which is exponentially larger than their first day.

Total we've bought pizzas for 22 occupations in different cities: Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, Boston, Seattle, Chicago, DC/K Street, Tampa, Philly, San Diego, Denver, Austin, Portland, Indianapolis, New Orleans, St. Louis, Minneapolis, Salt Lake City, Sacramento, San Jose and Des Moines.

Some we're feeding every day. Some we've inspired to get their own donations. It's been amazing. You can still participate. It's not over! I asked an occupier yesterday how long they are staying. She replied: "I don't know, I've never revolutionized before."

Bill wrote me this note:

Tonight, amidst hail and snow flurries, protestors are occupying Pioneer Park (with police permission) in Salt Lake City. They are not hippies and thugs. They are prepared to stay for the long haul. So far it is peaceful and nonviolent.
