With Love…The New Generation of Party People was written specifically to raise five million dollars for ten targeted nonprofit organizations while simultaneously creating soulful connections. Each nonprofit has been evaluated and ranked through Charity Navigator, America’s largest independent charity evaluator, to ensure the promotion of only those nonprofit organizations that are fiscally responsible.
My passion for entertaining and throwing out-of-the-ordinary parties, coupled with the belief that collectively we can change the world, quickly helped develop this vision. With this book and the accompanying website, hosts are able to present soulful experiences by providing unique and thought-provoking parties that touch the hearts and souls of their guests. The knowledge that each party benefits a select nonprofit enriches guests’ experiences further by reinforcing the belief system that collectively small contributions amount to substantial results that impact the lives of their fellow human beings.
With the understanding that giving a party is time consuming, this book attends to every detail needed in making the party a huge success and simplifies the process for the hostess. The experience starts the moment the guest receives the invitation…always a surprise as to the theme of the party but with clear understanding that a $20 donation is expected from each guest for a life-changing nonprofit. Each party is designed specifically for the featured nonprofit and, while intricate in nature, will have at minimum the following: pre-designed invitations available electronically, a presentation unveiling the organization that the party will benefit, creative and unique activities designed specifically for that party, menus with recipes and downloadable shopping lists, downloadable playlists designed for the theme of the party, and a parting gift. Parties are always positive in nature and created with the goal of touching the guests’ hearts while helping others.
Donations for the parties are given in the form of mobile pledging, in which guests text a designated word to 41444 to make their donation. Monies raised are sent directly from the mobile pledging center to the nonprofit organization. The formula is simple and easily attainable: fifty states, fifty parties in each, a ten-guest minimum, with a $20-per-guest donation. This formula, completed each month, will result in $500,000 per charity. The website’s tracking mechanism allows guests to watch the progress their dollars are making.
“May God bless you with tears to shed for those who suffer from pain, rejection, starvation, and war, so that you will reach out your hand to comfort them and change their pain into joy. And may God bless you with the foolishness to think that you can change the world, so that you will do the things which others tell you cannot be done.”
