Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Our post about Sir Richard's, a Boulder condom company with a one-for-one charity component, was spurred by a condom-giveaway project by CU-Boulder student Sean DePaula.

His good deed got a shout-out from one reader.

Mike Z writes:

Way to go, Sean and your team! Who knows how many pregancies and/or STD-infections you just prevented, by taking it upon yourself (you and your project partners, that is), by showing that rhetoric, the class you're in, is not just talk, but action, too.

CU students rock (safely!) :-)

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
