Hi again, Ladies.
Thanks for your warm welcome and enthusiasm for this idea! Also, many thanks for joining the Event, and passing the link on to your friends. too. I'd thought
you'd' be into it-- but reading your responses, here, gave me the goosebumps all over again.
I agree, it's so
exciting to imagine hooking up with one another, online, watching an FotC concert together. In this case, it'd be the closest thing to sitting side by side, rocking' to a great… nay, The
Greatest charity gig ever!
I see it and feel it all so clearly, as well… it almost pains
On the FB Events page, we're up to 95 who've joined. Now we know: Hard-core FotC fans = 95
But what about the casual fans? The ones who snapped up concert tickets so that it sold out in minutes?
The ones who filled up Wembley Arena three
times over-- 12,000 people a pop-- for example?
Or Hollywood Bowl, with 17,000 peeps..?
And every one else from every other concert and tour...
they, and how do we reach them?
WTF!, FotCMB, and Conchordsnet are (blessedly) already on top of getting this out on FB and Twitter.
We're writing to other people who may be interested in seeing the event happen, scoping websites that may be willing to promote it etc,
It's been great to come together to pool in ideas, effort and resources... already the sellotape of love sticking people together...
but we still need to find all the other paperdolls who'd enjoy this chance to be stuck together, but still don't know about it!
going to work just asking for numbers. We also have to drum out interest to avenues we'd never even expected to approach.
For instance, this weekend, I've decided to hit London's NZ hangouts. I'll have cards printed up, with the link to FB, and chat with people. Will leave them with a bunch of cards so they can pass it on, as well. Will have a looksie in NZ food stuff shops here, too-- perhaps they'd be willing to keep some flyers by the till...
Now, if you'd told me last week, that this is what my brain is planning on doing… well, passion is a creative madness, isn't it?
There are, also, a few ladies who're starting up a little campaign of their own- to try to reach more people.
They'd first written to me, to ask if it was alright for them to go ahead with it--- which threw me back, at first, because of course it's alright!Anything
anyone feels inspired to do to make this happen, can only help and strengthen. And bless them for it, too!
Really, this isn't my idea. It zapped into my head, yes… but, the only
thing mine about it was to get it out to others. (And trust me, it did not leave me be!) Now, this thing belongs to everyone who wants it to happen-- because that's the only way it can really happen!
So, no, of course I don't mind it if someone feels inspired to try something. This is yours, too; feel free to go for it! Besides, as mentioned, it's quite creatively liberating, and also gets one up to all kinds of funky business.
And, there's also really no wrong way to go about things... because everything about this is so good and worthwhile, in the first place, anyway. Huzzah!
OK, let me post this now, because I've been wanting to respond for a while-- but it's been super busy.
I hope I haven't come across as preachy, also... These are just some things currently on my mind.
Also about now
would also be a great time to miraculously transform into an Indian goddess, and sprout 16 agile hands to tappity-tap away.
LOL! Now wouldn't that
be quite the sight and confusion, when passing out the cards in booze-fueled NZ pubs, this weekend!
Along with that divine image, I'll also leave you with this one:
A visual of what this streamed event could look like...
... buut, because I can't get the picture to embed, I'll leave you this link, instead.http://flic.kr/p/bQqeKv
Thanks, ladies. You've been great!
