International Winter Bike to Work day is 2/8.

This is a pretty cool website that you can register your commitment to ride or find a local event. (Even if they aren't using the latest Google maps API...)

From my inbox: a request for donations of space heaters from @moreneighbors and Inquilinxs Unidxs for tenants in a slumlord's building who've been without heat. Temperatures here have been in the teens and twenties.

They can be delivered in person, or if you aren't in Minneapolis, you can have them shipped from Target or any other online retailer that delivers, to 3715 Chicago Avenue, Minneapolis, MN 55407

The recommended model is: Honeywell 360 Surround Indoor Heater Black 1500W HHF360B

MSP Social.net

A community centered on the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota, and their surrounding region.

An alternative to social networks that connected people in the region that have either died away or driven people off with unethical or anti-social policies.

MSP Social is a noncommercial community service, hosted and administered by @lawremipsum. Users should not feel obligated to contribute financially to the project. But contributions to defray server costs and/or for possible future expansion are welcome at Patreon, Liberapay or via PayPal to lawremipsum at gmail.

We financially support local community-oriented organizations. Currently, we support WedgeLive, Streets MN, Grease Rag and The MN Tool Library. Future support of community-oriented organizations will be determined by accountholders, donors and the admin, and is likely to be focused on groups that advance the values of the donors and encourage underrepresented voices in community and urban planning spheres.
