Waffle Wednesday Strikes Back

This morning, we were graced with the smell of waffles wafting through our offices. It had been a while since the last installment of Waffle Wednesday but with the Breast Cancer Fund's Peak Hike happening this weekend, we figured it was a good excuse to raise a few dollars for our friends over at the BCF in exchange for some scruptious waffles. Here's a look at what was included in this morning's spread:

Global Cooling—A Mayor Accomplishment

The Clif Bar band (aka The Dung Beetles) pulled down one more rung on our continuing - mostly accidental - rise toward obscurity last Tuesday, as we helped kick off the Cool Globes (:hot ideas for a cooler planet) art installation on Crissy Field, along the historic San Francisco waterfront. In short, local, national, international, even school aged children artfully designed and decorated 5’x5’ globes to help raise awareness and inspire action to help mitigate current Global Warming trends…aaand we were there to help get the party started (the exhibit will remain on Crissy Field from Aug 5 – Oct…

Care to do a bit of weeding?

Last week we braved an hour and a half of very unusual traffic to catch a ferry out to Angel Island. Why were 70 Clifsters headed out to an island in the middle of our bay? We joined forces with local friends REI and Mountain Hardwear to do a bit of foliage house-cleaning, of course. There were a total of 150 of us slicing and dicing the local weeds to make a bit of space on the ground of this delightful state park. After working under some record temps for about five hours, (we had a heat wave here in…

Garden versus Gopher

Last week, a few of us got some fresh air and did a little digging at the June Jordan Elementary School garden in San Francisco. Esperanza from Urban Sprouts showed us around the garden and gave a little schpeal about the program to get us stoked for our afternoon duties. And we were stoked. So stoked, in fact, that we each picked up a shovel and dug for two hours. June Jordan Elementary is located on a little hill way on the outskirts of SF, smack dab in a wind tunnel. We blew around for the afternoon (just check out…

From tons of hair…to none—all in the name of conquering kids’ cancer

The latest and final installment of Emily's St. Baldrick's adventure... What an amazing experience. Neither Michael nor I were prepared for the electricity surrounding the St.Baldrick’s event on Monday evening. We each came with an armful of Zbars thinking four boxes would be sufficient. Upon entering the outpatient area of the Children’s Hospital in Oakland we realized we had grossly misjudged the numbers. There were folks everywhere. Kids, mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, aunts, uncles, grandparents, friends, people who were just there to show support, volunteers, news crews and hospital staff. Nonetheless, I am sure that our meager gesture made its…
