The Definitive Coming Together of the World Wide Day of Laughter… sort of

Posted: January 28, 2011 in Uncategorized
On November 11th, 2011 (11/11/11) the World will Laugh Out Loud!

The ideas and suggestions are coming fast and furious! We appreciate all of the support! We want to give an overview of some of the details that are in fact definitive and cast in stone to this point, at least until we change our minds.  “Events”, are in the works for the World Wide Day of Laughter, which will undoubtedly wow one and all, including us. As we’ve been in the planning stage we thought as long as we’re all getting together for a global block party, as it were, we might as well take the opportunity to make some things better, for this little orb we call home. On a global scale we cannot think of anything more relevant than these three issues; hunger, clean water and climate change. The solutions to which must work hand in glove, according to two recent reports both published this month (The Worldwatch Institute’s State of the World 2011and The Foresight Report on Food and Farming). Both reports say it is imperative that we address agriculture on a more “localized” level around the world, as well as the effects of water quality and climate change as they relate to food production.  More on this to come…

Here’s what were know so far.

1)      Beginning at 11:11 PM local time wherever that may be for you and commencing somewhere down under. We are asking all to post a status update of LOL to the Official World Wide Day of Laughter Facebook page or LOL-DOL to your own personal Facebook or Twitter accounts.

2)      We are actively seeking sponsors to pledge anywhere 1 penny to $100,000,000 (anywhere in between would be ok) per LOL posted with the proceeds going directly to the designated charities.

3)      We are working to establish a special text #. The # will allow supporters to text LOL to it and immediately donate $11.11.  For all who are looking to jump the gun and get the party started!  Again with all proceeds will go directly to the designated charities.

Here’s where we could use some help. Remember this is to be a Global Event orchestrated through Social Media. Please help us by:
