    It's rather appropriate that all awesomeness ended on March 16.

    Guy Fieri cooks up meals for first responders fighting North Bay's Glass Fire

    Back in August the Bay's most popular celebrity chef, Guy Fieri, helped grill up meals for 2,500 firefighters in Calistoga who were battling wildfires. Just a few weeks later Fieri has once again shown up to help as he stopped by Cal Fire's Glass Fire base on Friday to feed those fighting the latest fire affecting Napa & Sonoma Counties.

    Mazda will give away 50 special-edition Miata sports cars to good Samaritans from 2020

    Mazda plans to give away 50 limited-edition Miatas to people who have "selflessly dedicated themselves to their communities throughout 2020," the company announced Monday.

    Fifty winners will receive an MX-5 Miata 100th Anniversary Special Edition, which sports a white paint job, red roof, and red-leather interior to honor Mazda's first passenger car, the R360. The model starts at $32,670 for the soft-top version with a manual transmission, while the hard-topped automatic variant starts at the upper end of the price scale at $35,750.

    People can submit stories to Mazda's website through October 25. Mazda will judge the applicants based on their contributions to their communities, their kind acts, and their creativity, and will start announcing honorees on December 2.

    My daughter voted for the first time today- 18 years old and I'll save the reasons she wanted to vote because it's not the politics area. At any rate, she's engaged and energized by the concept and I'm proud to say she's my kid!

    Italian Police Use Lamborghini Huracan to Transport Kidney 300 Miles in Just Two Hours

    Averaging 145 miles per hour, the Italian State Police delivered a donor kidney last week from Padua to Rome—a journey of more than 300 miles—in around two hours. The Lamborghini Huracan they used, which was specially modified for such tasks with a refrigerated frunk, was obtained by the Italian police back in 2017. Speedy organ delivery isn't its only job, though. In fact, it's a regular patrol vehicle for the department with lights, a police computer and other equipment necessary to perform traffic stops and arrests. Luckily for other speeders, it was too busy flying down the road for officers to check their radar guns.

    Loretta Shaw is the kind of person who will say hello to everyone she passes on the street during a walk. She is also one to buy a sandwich for someone who is homeless and hungry.

    At 81 years old, Shaw just sees a need and wants to help however she can. And she’s homeless herself. In stepped her Vancouver neighborhood. This group of friends, who all live and work in the Hough area, have banded together to give Shaw the kind of help she gives to others.

    Andrew Stewart, 39, has managed the Plaid Pantry at Fourth Plain Boulevard and Kauffman Avenue for the past 11 years. He said Shaw has been a regular customer. At first, he didn’t know she was living out of her car. “My employees and I thought she worked in the area,” Stewart said. “She always came in dressed in professional attire. But as time went on it became apparent that she was living in her car.”

    About a month and a half ago, Shaw came into the Plaid Pantry shivering after a cold night. “She came in and she was blue, freezing cold and I knew right then and there the situation was untenable,” Stewart said. “I had to get her someplace warm and someplace safe.” Stewart said one of the regular customers at his store took Shaw to a motel to warm up and get a hot meal. A group from Living Hope Church paid for some of the motel costs, and Lifeline expedited its hosting placement program.

    Stewart started a GoFundMe page (“Keep Loretta out of the cold!!!”) that has brought in more than $6,000 to date, which was boosted by another friend who put the fundraiser on the social network website Nextdoor. “I can’t express how generous folks in my neighborhood have been,” Stewart said. “And lots of them are blue-collar, working-class people living paycheck to paycheck who went out of their way to save this woman. “When we started the GoFundMe, we were incredibly desperate.” Shaw, originally from Corvallis, Ore., lived right across from the Plaid Pantry until the house she was renting was sold.

    She couldn’t find anything affordable to rent. And she’s all alone. Her husband and son have passed away. “That was most of it. I couldn’t find affordable housing,” she said. “So I went to my car, which wasn’t too bad … until winter. But here I am, and I’m happy.”
    "One problem with people who have no vices is that they're pretty sure to have some annoying virtues."

    384 Ways to Help

    This is Jeff Bezos' ex-wife, btw...

    After my post in July, I asked a team of advisors to help me accelerate my 2020 giving through immediate support to people suffering the economic effects of the crisis. They took a data-driven approach to identifying organizations with strong leadership teams and results, with special attention to those operating in communities facing high projected food insecurity, high measures of racial inequity, high local poverty rates, and low access to philanthropic capital.

    The result over the last four months has been $4,158,500,000 in gifts to 384 organizations across all 50 states, Puerto Rico, and Washington D.C. Some are filling basic needs: food banks, emergency relief funds, and support services for those most vulnerable. Others are addressing long-term systemic inequities that have been deepened by the crisis: debt relief, employment training, credit and financial services for under-resourced communities, education for historically marginalized and underserved people, civil rights advocacy groups, and legal defense funds that take on institutional discrimination.
