Founding a Non-Profit

Many reading this may or may not know that next month (February) I will be turning 30 years old. Depending on your life, you may find this old or young.  The reason this has been brought up is to explain my personal struggles through my 20s. Upon graduating college, the United States rather the world endured a harsh recession.  Despite all signs pointing to my behavior or mindset at the time not being prepared for what was about to happen, I took "a job" as a promoter in Las Vegas at the worse possible time. My suppression of anxiety and depression I had finally became an issue resulting in my return to Arizona and getting help from my family and doctors. 

Thus my career has been one of survival.  Every job that I have taken has been one to survive. There has been many hopes to find stability, but ultimately, sales and marketing has been the furthest from stable. From poor management, to not having any structure at all, many different situations have contributed to my departure. Along those lines of being lost and struggling, I founded my own media company combining my passion projects. The hilarious thing here is that it has not made me enough money to "be successful". 

If you have read this far, you are wondering, why are you telling me this? Well, we all have struggles, but some may be worse than others.  One thing that has saved me on many occasions, is the ability to attend events. More specifically concerts of artists that produce music I enjoy. Hence, when a person posted in a Facebook group the proclamation that they have NEVER been able to afford to attend a concert of this artist (their favorite artist), it sparked this idea.  Why don't I help others experience something positive? We Event Organization has become a goal for 2018! 

The goal of We Event Organization is to use community unity to help each other attend the event they deserve. While there are many different non-profits and/or charities that help in a similar way, avoiding the cons of some of these to be innovative has become a priority. The idea that you need to be experiencing something so devastating or impossible to receive help, is going to be changed. The abuse of crowdfunding in GoFundMe has been maddening. It's time to help ANYBODY attend the event of their dreams!

Coldplay: A Head Full of Dreams Tour at Rose Bowl Stadium


Life has its way of surprising you, and in my case it came about 9-12 months ago. Coldplay has been a band for most of my life. They have produced hit after hit and now 7 albums, but even as a music aficionado, I wouldn't say I ignored them, but I just didn't realize their magic until about 9-12 months ago. I started to re-listen to their albums, ask other people which is their favorite album, then ultimately decide that I have been missing out on seeing them live all of this time. I deemed seeing them on tour as a Bucket List concert, and since I failed to see them in Arizona in 2016, finding the closest show in 2017 was on the menu. It came down to Rose Bowl Stadium in Pasadena, CA or Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego, CA. Since, I had never been to the Rose Bowl, that is the choice I made.

I spent a couple of months researching tickets, you know the science of price versus location. Finally decided one based on availability and my quest to make this concert happen. I would say that I chose very well (see my Instagram). Since I have a morbid curiosity about things once I set my mind to them, YouTube is great for figuring out the set list, but despite videos, the live experience is just something special. The opening sets by Alina Baraz and Tove Lo did not disappoint, but the moment it was time for us 55,000+ fans to rock with Coldplay, the night was ON. Ironic that it fell on a full moon. The production and thought that goes into their concert is phenomenal! I figured out why they didn't return to Phoenix area, our concert venues aren't as big nor could they handle the pyrotechnics.

The fact that we all showed up on a week that began with a tragedy in Las Vegas and the death of Tom Petty, not to mention everything else going on in the world, you could feel the LOVE and UNITY in the air. Everything that those 4 guys not only stand for, but preach has clicked with a lot of us. This was certanly evident by the return of James Corden as well as announcement that proceeds for this and the one in San Diego was going towards disaster relief!

 

Needless to say, this was probably the BEST concert experience of my life, and considering I have been to many different shows and events, that just shows you how special. I plan to attend one or more shows on their future tours.
