dude.

i sure liked it- a lot!

pretty classy, creative, and generous.

for the past 2+ years i have volunteered in places that have food banks and i see first hand how much fb's are needed.

well done, folks, well done, and i hope it helps get you some biz. be double nice if folks who saw your setup remembered and called you to take donated food to the fb (and paid you to do it). all win, you, the fb, donors and recipients. if this happens you might want to get donors addresses so the fb could send tax deduction slips.

did you get 'best of show' for your category? would be nice! anyway, you get bos from me!

a happy christmas to you and yours!

haha thanks! No we didn't win any of the pre printed parade trophies(no bike related ones) but I'd say we were definitely a crowd favorite and the event organizers even called us the parade heroes, and hope that we can dig up more bicycle riders next year!

Thanks on the biz wishes too, it's not really to make any money, it's more to spread more bike cheer around here in a little project/experiment I'm doing to promote biking/walking and volunteering. Although all deliveries so far have come with a tip and I got a $20 bill for a 2 dollar delivery today with the words "you are doing something really awesome for this town"
That made me feel good
