This is an awesome idea, dudes! 

My wife belongs to a local art group, and a few times a year I help out with their food drive/fund raiser for our local food bank, The Help Center.  We call it "Starving Artists Feed the Hungry," and we have young artists come auction off their work (a portion goes to the Help Center), we have live bands play, free cocktails and food for the adults, and folks come in and drop off food and cash donations.  Between our last two events we've collected over 1,300 pounds of food and nearly $3,000!

The next event is comin' up in May, and I think I'll be printing up one of these badges to wear.  Nice job, dudes!

Be sure to blur brand names in the badge, we missed that on the first pass.

Now THAT is worthy of a vigorous golf clap - both for execution and charitable intent. Sir E of the Bay confirms I shall enjoy my beverage of choice from these majestic chalices sometime between Friday, Feb. 21 and Monday, Feb. 24.

One of people who used to help with pickups for our food ministry group has decided to start helping out again.  He showed up today at the store loading dock and after a while he did a double take and leaned close to my badge.  So, I got to explain Dudeism to him.  He thought that was cool/kewl.  I wonder if any of the other drivers have noticed it.

The loading docks have a generally friendly bunch of guys (mostly male, few women) once they figure out you're one of them.

Just checking in to confirm I received the glasses yesterday. Excellent, indeed. I plan to christen them with an intoxicating libation tonight! Thanks, much, Rev.

In today's food pickup was what looked like a candy bar. My wife picked it up and read the label, handed to me, I read it, handed it to a third person who read it and put it back in the cart to go to the food bank.

What sort of bar was it? beef-habanero-cherry

At the food bank pickup a guy saw my wife carrying a big bag of bread and said "let me help you!" and took the bag from her.  The next thing he said is "Ooof, that's heavy!"

She's stronger than she looks.  :)

Well Dudes, I'm currently out of the food bank (and any other business).  We're moving out of the USA to a new place 11 time zones to the East where we have all new people to give a hard time to.  :) :)

Sorry I haven't been on here for a while, it's been...hectic.

And now with the virus panic we can't cross the border so here we sit looking at pictures of our new house and thinking how nice the place is.

Once we move I'll see if there's any Dudes local to our new digs.

Best of luck in your new digs and your new adventure, Dude. My special lady friend and I are constantly talking about relocating. We're US/Canadian folks but were thinking of crossing the pond.  While we both speak English and French (her French is WAAAAY better than mine), I think that we could learn Portugese or Spanish or Italian or Greek...you know, just to abide somewhere less maddening and much warmer.  Anyways, best of luck to you and yours and the internet keeps us all connected.
Fortunately, I'm adhering to a pretty strict, uh, drug, uh, regimen to keep my mind, you know, uh, limber
