Dave recently told me that he started a recycling program at work as a way to keep the empty water bottles out of our trash system….what a generous guy saving the planet!!
Then it sort of morphed as a customer where he works has been bringing them cases of soda..which in turn result in returnable containers
So what is Dave doing instead of pocketing that money.?? He has been sorting those for BWB Detroit ever since December and so far has about $50 put aside for the backpack project.
WHAT??? yea! how awesome is that.. his plan was to make a lump sum donation later this year for the 2015 Backpacking Party. He told me “This project is due to go until about August, so hopefully we can generate $40 – $50 a month until then. ” how generous is that.. and even more so when he said “It’s a sticky mess to sort through every week so having the homeless as a motivator keeps me going!”
So yea.. double bonus points to Dave.. not only is he saving the planet.. but he is helping the homeless..and cleaning up after co-workers.. so that is like triple bonus points in my book.
And i would like to add that he and his wife Debbee and I donated $140 worth of McDonald Gift Cards to the Backpacking event in December of 2014.
