Did you miss the last blog ? CLICK HERE.
From that blog we now have two of the three people we need to prepare Santa's delivery to the three hospitals.
We play music to make people smile, be happy and to inspire support for good causes. We play music here on our blog, on our website, on YouTube, in the community and on the radio.
How about this for next week's THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK ?
Today I would like to take a look at the GOOD CAUSES wesupport, some we would like to support and how we can move everything forward.
SUNDAY 13th January 3pm we are having a meeting to discuss many things including which good causes we support, how and why.
I may be The Geriatric DJ as a person but I am only the front man for The Geriatric DJ as a brand. Therefore, as I now make a list of good causes this list is only a starting point. It is up to the team and the Fan Club on our FACEBOOK PAGE to decide.
Ronald McDonald House Birmingham - that's where everything started and, obviously, I want it to continue.
The Food Bank.
The Homeless. We currently support HelpingMK Homeless but following the wonderful singing of MiniLibs we will probably be expanding this area.
We, of course, have our friendship with Sheffield Wednesday Football Club which we work with to support families with a child sick in hospital.
The Milton Keynes Soup Run.
I would like to include The National Trust at Stowe.
I would also like to bring in an organisation I have found which loves drug addicts out of their hell and into a new life.
NINE good causes. There is NO WAY we could possibly cope with NINE organisations.
First of all SUPPORT does not always mean money.
THEN we set up the activities, the individual causes take and to use for themselves.
My original thinking was we should have one team member to link with each good cause, nine team members. I doubt we will find nine. BUT how about tipping everything on the head ? Not only would this mean we couldtake on EVERY good cause and even more BUT we would not need a team member. How about we invite each good cause to link one of their volunteers to us. They come to us and ask for our help rather than our having a team member to offer. MORE EFFICIENT - MORE EFFECTIVE - YEH what do you think ?
Just one thing - everything began with Rebekah's smile and Ronald McDonald House. I would like personally to be the link guy for this good cause.
