And I'm back in the game....Charity Awesomeness!!
« on: May 20, 2014, 08:12:42 AM »
After a quiet 2 years of me not doing anything particularly mind-blowing or stupid in the name of charity, I decided last weekend to get back in the game and start fundraising again... woohoo!
 
This effort was a "flash mob"...one or two people start dancing, and others kind of join in.  This one was a very short-notice affair and we got time for just one practice, and yes, moves were forgotten and mistakes made, but it is all in the name of a good cause (raising money for the children's hospital) and much fun was had by ALL concerned. 
 
This is the link.  You CAN just about see me...I am right at the back, second from left. I'm kind of sickened at my own cowardliness because I would have been perfectly able to be one of the first out doing the "Do Ray Me" bit, but I convinced myself otherwise! Ha, maybe next time!!
 
Enjoy!! :)

(There is very little I wouldn't do for charity...apart from anything remotely dangerous like leaping from a plane, bungee jumping or abseilling.  I now have a healthy respect for my own mortality!)

Do you have long dark hair?

I love the last song you guys danced to. I have danced to it too. What is it's name?

Everyone looked like they were having a good time!

No long blonde hair.  Right at the back, second from the left.
 
The last song was CHA CHA SLIDE by DJ Casper and the Platinum Band.  One of my absolute favourites.
 
And this time, we're gonna get funky!!

The tall one in front- I want her hat and shoes.  :)

How does this raise money?  Like at a race, were you pay money to run, you pay money to flashmob?

Looks like fun!
