Good Works Tour


There’s a reason it’s called the Mile High City… by wisedog

Hello from Denver, home of the Broncos, allegedly cold beer, and Tim Allen. (What?)

We had a blast working at the SAME Cafe today; they have an awesome program, and everybody who gives their time there is really cool (and the food is GREAT!)

Being in town during the Democratic National Convention has been a trip in and of itself.  We saw a man dressed as the Pope with a naked mannequin on his shoulders, standing on a street corner.  I know, poignant, right?

Here’s the video from our experience with Adopt-a-Stream in Seattle.  Hope you enjoy it!  (See my previous post if otherwise.)

Also, mad props to the Townsends for connecting us with their way-cool cousin in Boulder, who’s been good enough to host us.  Also, mad apologies to Sam for waking him up this morning.  What can we say? The Good Works Tour is loud.  It’s part of our mission statement.  Not really, but kinda, if you think about it.

Thanks for watching us, and caring about what we’re doing for some reason,

Hey you guys,

I think its interesting that you would be in Denver at the same time as the Democratic National Convention, and then Big Barry O gives that acceptance speech, and talk about America being a nation of people who must help each other.

“That’s the promise of America — the idea that we are responsible for ourselves, but that we also rise or fall as one nation; the fundamental belief that I am my brother’s keeper; I am my sister’s keeper.”

At one point he quoted Martin Luther King, Jr.

“the people heard…that in America, our destiny is inextricably linked. That together, our dreams can be one. “We cannot walk alone,” the preacher cried…”

Well when I heard him say those things, I started to think of the three men I knew in a van in Denver, the three men I had watched grow from boys, the three men I knew who were doing and living the very thing that we need so very badly in our country and society today.

The three men on the Good Works Tour.

I don’t know if its been said quite this way to you guys yet, but Thank You. Thank you for making the world a better place.
