Why did Joe eat his body weight in sunflower seeds, you ask?

We’d love to believe that our EVP of Brand Communications went to New Orleans a couple weeks ago just to get his fill of po’ boys, jazz and bead necklaces (oh brother).

But in typical Joe Hodas fashion, there was a much meaningful (dare I say “warm and fuzzy”) reason for the trip.

He and his buddy Andrew Hudson of Denver’s one-stop-job-shop AndrewHudsonsJobList.com helped bring a gent who lost his home to Hurricane Katrina and has been living in Denver back home. Specifically, they drove him there.

1300+ miles, 22 bags of snacks you only eat while on a roadtrip and 114 Mountain Dews later, they pulled a U-haul filled with this man’s stuff into the Big Easy and helped him start to replant roots where they belonged.

Read all about it here.

We love your big heart Joe.
