Thank You, Glenn Beck: The Sequel

A few weeks ago, Arianna Huffington graciously thanked Glenn Beck for helping to force Van Jones' resignation and position him to do what he does best: inspire and galvanize progressives and advance the initiatives the country needs most.

Likewise, Tides would like to extend our thanks to Glenn Beck for helping to generate additional attention for The Story of Stuff, one of the projects we proudly support.

While his assertions about The Story of Stuff ( were totally bizarre, the attention and support he brought to them was immensely beneficial.

We may have just found the best engine for progressives fundraising and organizing since Sarah Palin.

So thank YOU, Glenn Beck!
