Fundraising is a Performance, Play it Like an Auctioneer!
(Excerpt from TEDxLagoadasPatas Portugal July 21, 2018)
One of the lessons I’ve learned is that that everyone, no matter what educational background or socioeconomic status needs help at some point in their life. It could be a baby needing a heart transplant, help with rent or bills while fighting cancer; help with an aging parent or the adoring eyes of a dog or cat in danger of euthanasia. We all need help now and then.
If we pay attention to each other and our world as it unfolds around us, we CAN change our world. As individuals, we want to be inspired by the life choices we make, be engaged in authentic communications that touch our hearts, and valued for the small or large contributions that we’re able to make in society.

Change is hard, no matter who or where we are . . . Our world demographics have changed so much over the last 30 years, it’s a constant evolution revolving just like Earth. On it’s axis, the center stays the same, but everything around it changes. We need to change right along side it because each generation has their interpretation of what’s important and requires a different set of rules to attract, build and maintain a relationship. 10 years ago the largest population on earth was the Baby Boomers, step aside Boomers, by 2019, the Millennials will have taken the number one spot by over a million of people, and don’t feel left out Gen-Xers, your time is coming soon!
- Learn more about how to understand each generation, what’s important to them, how they want to be communicated with along with why and how to engage them.
Imagine if every person on earth, tried to change their little corner of world. Could we provide quality education for everyone, could we feed the planet with healthy food, could we break the binds of hate and live peacefully among each other? Yes, yes and yes.
It’s up to us . . . it’s up to each and every one us, to show up for one another in society, and to impact our world in a meaningful way! I challenge each and every one of you to be your version of my Sister Vivian to someone in your community today!
