A few days ago I appealed for help for my daughters' school but apparently no one heard me. So now, you leave me no choice but to re-tell my story and plea for funds using jerky moving pictures and movie captions.
Apparently the first rule of fundraising is YOU DO NOT TALK ABOUT FUNDRAISING.
Let me break it down for you.
A few months ago the kids had to watch their beloved performing arts department get wiped out.
It hasn't been an easy year. Everyone is carrying on but we know how they feel inside.
Now, because of a lack of funding, it's looking like the Senior Class of 2014 will be the first class in the high school's history NOT to graduate at the Hollywood Bowl.
GO AHEAD, KICK US WHEN WE'RE DOWN, UNIVERSE.
It doesn't feel good. It fact it hurts like a mutha.
Now everyone is stressing out trying to figure out how to come up with the down payment.
All of our appeals are falling on deaf ears. It's like we're the Amway salesman of high schools.
I KNOW I KNOW THERE ARE BIGGER PROBLEMS TO WORRY ABOUT.
But these kids have been through a lot this year, and man, you don't know how happy they would be with a great sendoff on their last day of school.
If you or someone you know would like to help sponsor the Hollywood High Class of 2013, please leave your contact info here or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
