ARTISTS AND DONATING IN FOCUS
It is “inn” these days to establish various kinds of organizations with the aim to contribute and help people in need all over the world. The disaster in Haiti might have been an inspiration to many for new and other ways to support and be of help and assistance wherever needed in the world.
And I have been one of those as well – maybe with another angel to up-built a non-profit organization. It was, however, quite obvious to me, that the collections for aid programs were somewhat like a one-way road and the means used in fund collections were undertaken as always by door visits, Internet applications, TV shows and much more.
Needless is it to say that the entire world just suffered from a financial crisis and many people inclusive artists in the fields of music, song and dramatic art were often in focus for free performances in different shows and events. To be fair in such arrangements to the benefit for aid programs can be a difficult task to any arranger in the world.
It is however, known and used that the professional arrangers behind aid programs may receive a reduced fee for the entire set-up of any kind of arrangements. To be honest, I couldn`t see the logic in those areas, where some participated free of any fees and others not. Artists with fine art, sculptures, jewelry and more are used to pay for a stand and pay a percentage to the arrangers for whatever might be sold to the benefit of the aid program.
Everything in the world will of course be a question about temperaments, but whenever the overall financial situation might influence too much to the individuals whether artists or private persons it might be good from time to time to re-examine status and take the challenge to try new ways which could end up in a two-way traffic being fair to as many as possible.
In conjunction with other professionals in the fields of aid programs we have tried to work out a new concept applicable to all our events and you can view the details either on our website or video presentation via these links:

You are more than welcome to comment whether positive or negative, but constructive to our mutual benefits for a concept that may be changed any time if circumstances permit it.
Enjoy and have a wonderful time wherever you are in the world – hopefully we might meet live sometime in the future.
