David has received the Christmas Certificates and Ornament!!

December 9, 2008

Hey guys, Serena here, well after a lot of labor I was able to personally give David both certificates from the pay it forward Christmas Project and the ornament, by some grace of God some amazing people made it happen for me in Houston and I will forever be thankful. Here is a recap of what happened! Thank you again to everyone who helped support this project..FYI isn’t cool to think that David will be hanging the same ornament on his tree as we have…awwwwwww!!!
FROM HOUSTON MEET AND GREET!!

It was very rushed and I knew I would only have seconds with him, I had everything out of the gift bag and was ready to speed talk, lol. When it came my turn, Robin from Fod was my buddy for the David pic, I approached him and he said, “Hey how are you doing,” I just love that he recognizes us….WOW! I said great now listen lol, I told him really quickly what the pay it forward project was and I was showing him the certificates, he took each one, looked at them and said something like “oh wow, awwwwww, that’s really cool.” He laughed when he saw the donor certificate that had a picture of him in a Santa hat. When I told him how much we donated he just sort of stopped for a minute and looked at me and said, “Oh wow, really,” I don’t know, security was starting to get inpatient with me but I still had more so I handed him the ornament and started to tell him that I designed it and that it was what the donors received and he took it and said, “Oh yea I signed one of these in Sacramento,” I said,”I know I saw, but this one is for you to hang on your tree.” I really wasn’t looking at him as I was trying to get the certificates back in the bag but Robin and the others in the room said that he was really excited about the ornament once I told him that one was his, he kept turning it and looking at it saying “awwwww thanks that is so cool,” Ok security and camera man getting really irritated with Serena now got to wrap this up, Robin approached and gave him her gift and said a few words, I was sort of out of it by then, trying to remember if I had told him everything that I wanted to in the few short minutes that I had. The cameraman finally said ok look this way.haha, hint hint. I was on his left, Robin on his right. After the picture the security was already trying to move us out of the way so that the next two fans could go, I turned to him and said “You take care,” and he hugged me…awwwwww. David hugs are the BEST! Ok short and sweet yes but sooooooooo worth it. I saw Jeff standing off to the side and thought hey I am here might as well stop, security won’t mind even though by this time they were pointing the way out for us, I quickly told Jeff thanks and a little about the pay it forward and pointed to the gift bag where the certificates were, got a quick hug and left. WHEW!!!!!! I know the whole thing probably lasted about 5 minutes but it really felt like seconds….but the most important thing was that I was able to give David the certificates in person for you guys, he was very happy and appreciative and loved loved loved the ornament. Thank you to everyone who was a part of the project. I can’t begin to tell you how much it means to me that we were able to do this for such an amazing charity in honor of David. David fans are the most amazing, generous, caring, giving group of people I have ever met and because of all of you we will help grant a child’s wish in honor of David.

HERE IS MY ORNAMENT ON MY TREE…IT HAS A VERY SPECIAL PLACE RIGHT UP TOP…SEND YOUR PICS TO fodserena@gmail.com AND I WILL POST THEM! WHILE YOU HERE TAKE A LOOK AROUND WE HAVE SOME GREAT PROJECTS GOING ON, BE SURE TO CHECK OUT MARY’S BIRTHDAY PROJECT!

CALLING ALL SPORTS/DAVID FANS!! Great idea from a fan to help out an amazing charity!

December 2, 2008

This is a great idea from a fellow FOD chatter!!

Hey all! So most of you know me as rdsxfn1616 in the FOD chat, I’m the crazy sports guy that can never stop talking about the Red Sox and sports in general, and I talk about that Danny or Dave kid or whoever from time to time too lol jk. Anyway, I came up with this idea last night. I wanted to connect the things I’m a big fan of right now, which are David, college basketball, my school, and doing something positive. After much thinking, I came up with the following. Most of you probably know the charity that David’s for, the Invisible Children. This charity involves helping children in war-torn countries get an education and put them in “enhanced learning environments.” (http://www.invisiblechildren.com/home.php) So I came up with a donating “game” involving my college basketball team. For every 3-pointer the team makes, I will donate 10 cents to Invisible Children. For every game they win, I’ll donate $1. Should they make the NCAA “March Madness” tournament, I’ll donate $2 for every tournament win. And if they win the national championship, I’ll donate $20. I’ll add up the total, and donate the entire sum at the end of the season (the college basketball season ends April 6th).

Now, you might be saying, could I do this as well? Well that’s my hope! All you have to do is pick a Division 1 NCAA basketball school (there’s a list here –

http://web1.ncaa.org/memberLinks/links.jsp)! I’ll compile all the 3-pointers and wins for your “school”, and I’ll tell you what your total is on a weekly basis. Even if your not a college basketball fan or sports fan at all, remember, this is to help the Invisible Children, and help David out as well, as I’m sure he would love the support for this charity from his fans. And I’ll do all the work for you. I could even pick a school for you if you want!

Now you may ask, how much will this cost me? Well, if you pick a good basketball school, I’d say they, on average, make about 8-10 3’s a game, which is about a dollar. This will start on Dec. 15, (the season already started in November but we can pick it up in the middle lol), so each team will have about 20-25 games left. So that would be 20-25 dollars based on 3’s, then add 1 dollar for each win, and 2 for each tournament win if they get that far. A good basketball team will probably mean a donation total of around 50-60 dollars in the end. If we can get a lot of people to contribute, we can hopefully get hundreds in total, maybe even a thousand?!! Lol

Okay, I’m rambling now haha, please if you commit to this, please do not back out and honestly donate, remember, this has little to do with college basketball and lots to do with David and the Invisible Children. If you have any questions or if you want to contribute, please email me at bmo1616@verizon.net. Thank you so much!
