So you know how last year y’all bought a bunch of chocolate and I sent the money to Russia? ?Wasn’t that fun? ?And tasty? ?We had a super great time didn’t we? ?And we’ll do it again this year. ?Don’t worry, chocolate will be plentiful. ?Thing is, I saw how much money could be raised and that the amount goes up every year. ?To be honest, I get down on my hands and knees and thank the world (God included) for such awesome people that would give their money to help these children. ?I pull out the receipts and newspaper articles from Russia and look at them and say thank you.
Every year I say that I want to send more and more money. ?This year is no exception. ?I want you to buy as much chocolate as possible, but I’ve come up with a scheme idea to raise even more money. ?Call me crazy, but wouldn’t a benefit concert kick ass? ?If done correctly would raise quite a bit of money. ?Trouble is, I’m not sure I can do this one by myself. ?Lord knows I can’t make all of the chocolates by myself anymore. ?I need help.
A benefit concert seems pretty simple right? ?Uh, not so much. ?I need a venue (preferably one that will let me use it for free and one that seats a lot of people). ?I need bands (also, that would play for free and if you are someone like Dave Matthews that would like to raise money for Russian orphans that would kick ass). ?I need promotors (free people). ?And I need concert goers (those need to be able to shell out a couple of bucks for a ticket and who might like to buy some chocolate). ?What do I have so far? ?Um, nothing. ?Just an idea. ?Oh yeah, I want to do this in November if possible. ?Only because that’s when I’m selling chocolate and if you’re attending a concert you might as well buy some chocolate too. ?The organization is called SWEET HOPE for a reason.
If you would like to help in any way please let me know. ?I would love all of the (free) help I can get. ?Email me at elle @ lifeofelle . com. ?I would love you forever. ?If you would like to sponsor the event that would be cool too. ?Or if you are Dave Matthews… yeah I was totally serious.
In other fun Sweet Hope news… we finally got our own domain name yesterday. ?So look for a link for that coming soon.
That would be awesome! Dream big – you never know. Now that you’ve put it out there, you might just find a way to make it happen! Good luck. Wish there was some way I could help, but I can’t think how. I will promise to buy more chocolate! 🙂
Wish there was some way I could help too. If you think of anything, let me know. In the meantime, I’ll post a link to this on my blog and in FB, just in case I have any readers that don’t also check in here and who would be interested in helping out.
BTW, I’ve done quite a bit of backstage work in the theatre, so if I could help out in that capacity, let me know.
What state and area are you located?
