‘Twas the night before Black Friday and all through the town,
Folks were all dreading what was ‘bout to go down.
They’d saved up their money and gassed up their cars
And set the GPS for where the stores are.
They’d buy and they’d buy. You can just bet
They’d load up their carts. They’d get, get and get.
But when the time came, here’s something strange.
All the stores opened and nobody came.
They stayed home with family, they stayed home with friends.
They looked at the season through a new kind of lens.
“Getting” they said, “Is no way to live.”
Much better than getting is to give, give and give.
But how do you give? It’s not hard. I’ll explain:
You just see a need, then you start a campaign.
Here is a young student who can’t make tuition.
Start a campaign. Bring her dreams to fruition.
Here is a family struggling to cope.
so start a campaign and give them some hope.
And here is a vet whose mortgage is late
And an amazing kid with an uncertain fate
You’ve got the idea. You know what to do.
Start a campaign to help them out too!
Then rally your friends to join in your quest.
That’s how campaigns turn out the best.
Because, you, you, and him, her, him you and me
Are so much more powerful joined together, as “We.”
So let’s get a move on. Let’s contact our friends.
Let’s invite them to be part of the trend
Talk to your siblings, your dad, and your mom
And start your campaign at GoFundMe.com
