Last night was my Help Whip Cancer Community Fundraiser. Flyers were posted all over town, donations were made by several local businesses (gift certificates to be raffled off at the event), announcements were made on the radio and in the local paper and our local Coca Cola bottling company made us a large banner sign that we posted on the main road through town. I personally sent out 75 e-mail and just before we went to set up at the high school where the event was being held we even posted the flyers that we had left on cars in Walley World parking lot. I am sickened right now by my commuity and their lack of coming out for an amazing cause. There were 2 people in attendance (1 that I invited and a friend that she brought with her) I know that this is the wrong place to vent to make a difference but I am so bummed right now for the cause that I don't want to say the wrong thing to folks. What I want to do is send out a mass e-mail write a letter to the editor of the paper embarrising the crap out of this commuity for what they have failed to do. I know how un-tactful that is which is why I am here. There was even a janitor there who kept coming in to check on us that sat a a table and cried for the lack of support our community offers. A lady that works at the high school (where the event was being held) has breast cancer and he was blown away that not even her coworkers came out to support her. I know that there are places that are better than others for something like this but how sad that only 2 people were concerned enough to attend. The one that I envited even drove 30 minute to come. She doesn't even live in the area. I would love to keep this open and try to get outside orders but I am so bothered by everyone right now that I don't know how to let people know that this can still happen without scolding them. Any suggestions?
