Why, because it’s got everything I love-protests, international goodwill, small business success, solidarity, personal stories and best of all Ian’s Pizza!

Oh yeah sure the First Amendment is fine and all, but protesting without any idea of where your next meal is coming from is pretty Un-American! Heck, every successful protest movement counts on a few things, first decent weather, second a steady supply of snacks and drinks.  Well if you begin a protest in Wisconsin in Feb good weather is right the heck out the window-so food is seriously important-hot food that is. Food that doesn’t require complicated serving utensils, or plates for that matter. Yeah pizza’a pretty much a perfect food item.

As of Wednesday, here are a few stats:

“We’ve got 505 pizzas ordered already for today,” reported Jack Thurnblad, assistant manager on State Street, at about 10 a.m. “We delivered 700 pies yesterday, 1,000 the day before, and thousands of slices.” The tally of out-of-state donations, kept on a blackboard, now spans 30 countries including Egypt, Korea, Switzerland, Finland, New Zealand, Denmark, Australia, Canada, Germany, China, England, the Netherlands, Turkey, Italy, and all 50 U.S. states.

To help Pizza for Protestors, call Ian’s( details below), like their Facebook Page, follow them on Twitter.

Their signature pizza is Mac & Cheese… sigh, wow, love.

    I was just thinking about this yesterday. I was thinking about all those people and how long they had been there, how long they will have to stay, and how they were going to be taken care of. I was glad to see this story!

    On a related note…

    If you send popcorn to the kids spending the night in the capitol, send CLARY’s, not Vic’s. Clary’s is at the top of State, close to Ian’s, and is a LOCAL store. Vic’s is a chain. Clary’s is to popcorn lovers what Ian’s is to pizza lovers! Clary’s Gourmet Popcorn 105 State Street Madison, WI 53703, (608) 255-2994
