What funny, crazy, outrageous thing would you like Dean to do to meet our $5K goal fundraiser to send 2 people to the Edge?

Hello DG family!

I'm not sure why, but someone deleted this original post. So, repost your responses. There isn't any reason it should have been pulled unless Dean got cold feet after seeing the ideas. Sticking out tongue [But I did confirm with Megan he'd be up for this type of thing]

As you know the Edge is already NEXT MONTH! And, we have run a contest this year to give 2 people a chance to win EDGE tickets to this year's event. We want to be sure to continue this every year and our goal is to get the $5K donation to do this and repeat it again every year. This is a contest run by Dean's student's, the DG family here, NOT Dean or his employees. We took the initiative to do this ourselves.

What will motivate you to donate, even just $10 if that's all you can afford, to give so two members of the DG family the chance of a lifetime to goto the Edge event?

Would you want to see Dean sing a song? Please help me with my quest here. We are aiming to get $5000 in donations for this. We now have $750 donated, and we have about 15 more people sending in donations of various amounts.

WHAT would motivate YOU to give $10 (or more if you are blessed and able) to this cause that we can do every year and pay it forward to the newer DG investors?

Way outside the box

Dean already provides so much for us RE wise, I was thinking something totally off the wall. Something that would take us away from RE for a few minutes and cause us all to have an EXCELLENT laugh and would be awesome to see. Imagine this.

We raise the $5K for the contest, and as a result Dean will have to do something irrelevant and something that will make us all laugh. I was thinking of creating a 5 minute extension on one day of the Edge event where Dean would be doing something that would be so entertaining and different the whole place would erupt in laughter. It would be recorded and shared here on the website. Laughter has some amazing qualities, and all work and no play makes it monotonous. So, here is what my idea is.

Dean will perform on stage at the EDGE event a song. He will have to dance and sing and act very crazy. He will sing a hilarious song, I'm thinking maybe 'Like a Virgin' by Madonna and do the dance moves to boot with it. IF we can raise the $5000. That would mean at this point about 400 of us donating $10; or 800 of us donating $5. Would this anticipation of something totally bizarre inspire anyone to reach the goal?

If we all know Dean, he would most likely add something RE or benefit on top of that of his choice, but I want some totally bizarre off the wall ideas. I can picture the above in my head, and I know it would be so hysterical. I'm cracking up just thinking of it. Sticking out tongue DEAN is up for doing something crazy you guys. Can you top my crazy idea? Dean would do something like this. Let's gather up our DG family and get the contest going so we can raise the $5K by the end of March! WE CAN DO IT!! C'mon, even Dean's employees would want to see something of this caliber. IT would be something noone would EVER forget for sure! Laughing out loud

We want to see this contest go on every year! Would you pledge for a crazy outcome like this? Sticking out tongue

In our REIC

We refer to Dean as a Superhero, and one of the investors suggested having Dean wear the whole superhero outfit; the tights, the cape, the whole sch-peal. Thought that would be a funny idea as well. Smiling

Hmmm

Thought the other post was pulled because my ideas were too far out.
One was having Dean not only dance but to DRESS the part as well. Perhaps to songs like "Baby Got Back" or "U Can't Touch This", parachute pants and all!
With those arms he's been sporting lately, he could do a Hanz & Franz skit with somebody (Matt Larson maybe?). Vee are here to pump *clap* you Up!

LOL @ Mark! Erik, pump up those muscles!

Mark, Either that or Dean and Matt got frightened at the prospect and flagged it as offensive. Sticking out tongue

Erik, I like the push up bit too. You think Dean could only do 1000 push ups? Laughing out loud I'd pledge 5 cents per push up. And, doing them in his superhero suit Rina and I are going to make for him Sticking out tongue

edge event

Right now I cannot afford anything at all. But, still, when, where and how much is this event? And, everybody, give me courage. I just called my first real estate agent. I was so scared telling him what I wanted to do without telling him I didn´t have a single cent.


Consider courage sent! What

Consider courage sent!
What I did? Since I'm a night owl, and calling folks at 2 in the morning doesn't really do anything besides inspire heart attacks,- I went to the websites of as many local offices as I could find online, (Remax and Keller-Williams both have lovely search engines for JUST that sort of thing...) And I sent my letter (Matt Larson's letter, with my own parameters,) in through their "Contact us!" links.

I KID you NOT, within two days, I had 4 agents call me back, and three of them quite happily sent me a list of "As-is, vacant, and over 90 days on the market"

Right now? I need to get off my fluffy tail and start putting in offers! THAT'S where I need some courage! Laughing out loud


Hmmm... Does anyone know

Hmmm...

Does anyone know what Dean's SINGING voice is like? >:)


LOL Susan, NOone has heard Dean sing! Welcome to DG Alice!

We have NO idea what his singing voice is like! Sticking out tongue It would be quite... err... umm.... interesting! Laughing out loud

GOOD job on getting the letters out to agents. My agent is slacking and I have to do that process again (for the 6th time) to find a few more agents; however, I did have a broker send me an email on my website wanting to work with me, so I'm calling him today. My agent is just so busy, she can't keep track of all my offers and I'm not getting any responses on any of my offers except the one she is listing agent on. So, to not overwhelm her so much, I need to have at least 2 more working it for me. Since I am working all over LA and the surrounding areas, I'm setting my goals to get at least one per county. Smiling

Hey, Alice, welcome to the DG family. The EDGE event takes place in Phoenix and the normal cost is $2495. Its a 2 1/4 day event, with many things going on in between the time when the conference is not going on. IT is definitely a goal to aim for; to be able to make enough doing REI to goto the Edge.

Taking this idea 1 step further...

...and do 1000 pushups per hour on a live webcast? A penny per rep would make $10 per sponsor. I'll match 'im 20:1 on the pushups. While we all sing the Mighty Mouse theme?

You know how they have bike-a-thons and walk-a-thons, why not have a push-up-a-thon?
That way everybody going to the EDGE could participate if they wanted to. Get a bunch of sponsors for each entrant at $$ per push-up. Then the Dean part of it would be that if he didn't win, he has to fork over the $5k or whatever it will be. That would be in addition to the money that the contestants raised from their sponsors.

Sure wish I was going this year, I'd definitely participate in that!

No, only those that wanted to and had a list of sponsors also.

My goodness, if that were true, only 10 people would show up to the EDGE! lol

I GOT It! It will inspire AS well as get a laugh!!

HA HA!
OK, so, with a little "Fixing" of the lyrics shown in this video, we get Dean to sing it on stage it inspires as well as gets the giggles, everyone has a good time, and everyone leaves with a song they can turn to when/if life happens... (As it so painfully does...)

ready for this??

REALLY?

REALLY REALLY?

Here you go then... Laughing out loud

Shakira's song for the World Cup Soccer/Football 2010 Change the Lyric "This time for Africa" to "This time for All Of Us!"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FEpt7Fpvwrw&feature=related

Some of the other lyrics might need tweaking, but I think it would still go over well just changing the one...

And if we could actually get Dean to do even SOME of the moves? PRICELESS!!!
(Yes, I'm evil, I know it... but really- I try to use my powers for good! Laughing out loud )


Susan

LOL, that's funny Sticking out tongue You know, several of us gals are getting together at the Edge and a couple of the guys are going to crash our little gathering. We told them they all have to wear skirts, stilettos, make up, shave their legs and under arms and sing 'Ladies Night'.

Jay, Randy, Ali, Jan, and a couple of the other DG men will be there. We think they are going to secretly bring Dean too. Just a rumor I heard. Sticking out tongue Bahahahaha!

My kind of party!

But really, don't the lyrics there just fit everything we are attempting for ourselves? -- "Pick yourself up and dust yourself off and back in the saddle"... Laughing out loud

Have a fantastic time! I am REALLY hoping there will be pics, and/or video? Sticking out tongue (Hey It's NOT Las Vegas, you could get away with it!) ((Yes, I know, there's that Evil thing again...)) Sticking out tongue

(I'm thinking this year is a no-go for me, Just because I haven't gotten a deal yet, and even if one of my offers is accepted tomorrow morning, it won't close until after the Event. And I'm a little scared to be putting an offer out there with a 7 or 14 day closing date on it, without a rock-solid buyer in my hip pocket!)
Ah well...

When you fall- get up- Ah, ah!
If you fall- get up- Eh, eh!
Tsamina mina zangalewa,
Cause this is all of us!
Laughing out loud Laughing out loud Laughing out loud
