A mild November Saturday brought people out in Madison, shopping, strolling, and dinning. David Sylvester stopped in to Madison to pick up Pizza for a person who works in the New Haven Womens shelter, as a part of his #SmileWithBigDave Holiday Tour. He has been traveling throughout the United States to treat someone with a meal, hoping to spread cheer and hope.  He has been on this mission for 19 years, taking it on after a friend of his died in the 9/11 attacks.  This year has been a challenge for everyone, and he is hoping to finish it off bringing some humanity and smiles as he travels. David  poses for a selfie with Chris Nuzzo and Migdalia Nuzzo to add to his twitter and instagram feed.
