Your #NoPieRefused #RAGBRAI guys just rolled through the state fairgrounds in Des Moines. It triggered a memory of Don’s last visit here almost exactly two years ago. This is a Debbie Elliot story where Don makes an appearance.
Our collective area on the map for the Hello Harto tour is fairly low, and I know we are all just jumping at the chance to meet the one and only Hannah Hart. SO here is my idea: Besides asking all our friends and loved ones to toss in a dollar, how about pitching the idea of becoming a local sponsor to our local businesses/maybe even throwing together a fundraiser to help get all $5k of it. (At the time of posting this [Jan 4 10am] there are 9 local sponsorships left). It’s a shot in the dark, but I think it might be something we all could get behind to get our lovely lady to come to the midwest! Reblog it around and maybe we can get something going!!
Tennessee Williams (playwright), Al Swearengen (historical figure/brothel-owner), Mamie Eisenhower (First Lady), Ben Foster (actor), Walter Day (founder of Twin Galaxies), Frederick Maytag (founder of Maytag), Ben Silbermann (Co-founder/CEO of Pinterest), and a million more if I had time to list them. Let me know if I can help, Average Iowan. Love my State. Love what we represent. Love all of the history we have. Love the corn, love the Hawkeyes, love the harvests, hate the winters.
Sorry about the late response, but thank you so much for the list of Iowa Natives! We’ve added them to the list. :)
And man, I feel ya about the winters. But all the other stuff’s worth it, I’d say!
