Don't you think it's a little weird, that a movie can get 1 billion of sales in just a few days ( The last Avenger movie) while some poor people are dying everywhere because of lack of food, wars and more ?
The other day, when they raised hundred of millions for the Cathedral Notre-Dame de Paris that burned, in just one day, it made me question common sense and about our humanity.
HERE IS THE GAME PLAN : What if, all the people who went or are planning to go watch the last AVENGER, invested the same amount to help poor people ?
- What if it was working ? 1 billion in just a few days for the poor ? - What if we would repeat this campaign for several other Block Buster movie to come ?
That would translate in hundred of millions in donation every year from simple people making a simple donation ( from 10$-20$) making a huge impact.
I don't know about you, but my seat at the movie theater would feel a lot more confortable and I would enjoy my movie " a lot more ".
Here is how I suggest we do it : - 100% of the money will be use for the charity we'll choose together. - if we see that it's working, we'll simply create a poll on internet to choose the charity altogether or may be just ask to some people used to give large amounts ( Buffet, Branson, Gates ) to be sure we're giving the money to to a good and honest charity.
"Like you, I want to be sure the money will be used wisely."
WHY A PERSONAL CAMPAIGN AND NOT GoFundMe Charity campaign : When you create a campaign, Go Fund Me ask you, which charity you'll be giving to.
As I don't know which ones are " really good / honest", I am asking a leap of faith from you, let's start gathering the money and using a poll (I am a techie guy), altogether we'll choose to which charity we'll give the money.
And we'll repeat that for every major Hollywood movie.... You go see a movie, you give the same amount to help people.
This week, I am planning on going to watch the last Avenger movie ( name of this first campaign) so I'll start myself by making a donation for the same amount.
My wife told me: "Me, I would not give money if I didn't know how the money will be spent or where it will go"
HOW I SEE IT : By trusting a "perfect stranger", that though "What if it as working?" You're sending a bold message to the universe that you still have trust in humanity and that good and honest people must still exist and that together we can do great things.
ABOUT ME : Jean-Francois Bourdeau (Montreal, Canada) I am just a normal guy ( 51 years old) , don't worry I am ok with money, 3 beautiful kids, having a normal life, who loves watching movie at Movie Theater and who would like to make a major impact while still here on this beautiful planet.
