I am reaching out to you with a heartfelt request to help me complete a project that is close to my heart, and I believe it’s my life’s work. It’s called – “hencetheoutfit – the Seniors Show – Joke, Jacket, Song, repeat if necessary – Sewing My Way to the Top.”
This DVD is designed to bring joy, entertainment, and a sense of belonging to seniors around the world and is the video representation of my award winning Seniors Show honed over 13 years of live performances. However, I’ve hit a roadblock that requires your support. I am embarrassed by this, but I HAVE to help the Seniors by Christmas.
The DVD project is, in fact, complete and ready to go, and it looks just awesome. Music and laughs, stories and songs, lights, mirror balls and bubble machines and glittering jackets, – hell, even angel wings and antlers!! It’s the result of countless hours poured into crafting a unique and uplifting experience for seniors. The content is carefully curated, designed to spark nostalgia, laughter, and cherished memories – plus swingin’ tunes and with each song increasingly awesome jackets! It’s awesome, trust me on that, I’ve been an entertainer for 35 years and I know what I’m doing.
The music selected plays a crucial role in creating the perfect atmosphere, but here lies the challenge – acquiring SYNC PUBLISHING LICENSES to put copyright old music in film or video.
Securing these licenses has proven to be an arduous and expensive process – brutal! The music industry demands a fair compensation for the use of their compositions, and rightfully so. However, for an independent project like mine, the financial burden is pretty overwhelming.
The biggest mountain comes 6 inches from the finish line – SYNC LICENSE MOUNTAIN. The DVD manufacturer’s cannot legally print the DVD’s without the proper licenses so I am present, dead in the water. This project deserves it’s honour, it deserves it’s integrity. As far as I know it is the first and only entertainment DVD specifically for Seniors ever. I simply MUST obtain the necessary licenses legally, which requires a substantial investment.
Initially, I set out to fund this project from my own savings, driven by a deep passion for providing seniors with a source of joy and companionship. Unfortunately, the costs have far exceeded my limits, and I have reached a point where I can no longer continue without your generous assistance.
The $1680.00 I aim to raise will be allocated exclusively towards acquiring the sync licenses – manufacturing the DVDs and creating a website I will pay for myself somehow. Every contribution, no matter the size, brings me one step closer to realizing this dream. Nothing will stop me. I WILL make this happen. I WILL help the Old Folks.
By supporting “hencetheoutfit – the Seniors Show,” you are not only helping to overcome this financial hurdle, but you are also becoming a crucial part of a movement that seeks to bring happiness to seniors who may be feeling isolated or in need of a little extra sunshine in their lives. This will do it.
The last 4 years has seen an attack on Seniors like never before in human history. Millions have fallen. Each day we see more and more cruelty inflicted on those who can least protect themselves – from targeted physical abuse to online scammers. If it’s selfish of me that this DVD project will be all that’s left of me in the end then so be it. At least I tried to be remembered for creating something good. At 63 years old I have no children and I never married.
I hope beyond hope that there are people who could find it in themselves to come together as a community to help spread hope, love, and joy to seniors everywhere. Your contribution will not only fund a project, but it will touch the lives of countless individuals who deserve to experience the warmth of “hencetheoutfit – the Seniors Show – Joke, Jacket, Song, repeat if necessary – Sewing My Way to the Top.”
Thank you for considering my project, and for potentially being a beacon of light in the lives of seniors around the world.
