Uncle Fatih's Pizza to Pigeon's Park

I had an interesting experience on Wednesday night. The guys at WorkSpace called around some local Gastown businesses to fund a pizza delivery to Pigeon Park, and I stopped in to help hand out the pizzas. Here's a short video that I did with Bill MacEwen talking about why:

The Pigeon Park experience was great. I don't know how many Stacies it's worth, but the thanks of the people there who appreciated this food we were giving them was enough. I don't know how we can fix many of the issues faces the Downtown Eastside, but this is Bill's idea to at least spread a little good.
