Laura is just about set to start cutting out this year's West Coast Eisteddfod Lovespoon, but before she does, I wanted to take this quick opportunity to ask for your support! As everyone is well aware, times are getting tougher and tougher and money is getting tighter and tighter. It's become extremely difficult to stage any kind of event these days as sponsors dry up and potential attendees try to decide whether they can afford to go out or not.
Things are no different for the West Coast Eisteddfod. As a grassroots production, the Eisteddfod feels even the slightest drop in support in a big, big way. This lovespoon helps to cushion the financial impact of weakening sponsorships by providing a fund-raising opportunity for the Eisteddfod. Anyone and everyone is most welcome to donate to the Eisteddfod and in exchange for their generosity, will have the opportunity to win the spoon when it is drawn for at the Eisteddfod this October. Every dollar helps to ensure the Eisteddfod's continued existence and every dollar could be the one that wins the spoon.
I urge you to consider donating and to encouraging your friends and relatives to do the same!! Each dollar you donate equals a ticket in the draw...the more you donate, the more tickets you get!! But it only takes one to win and if one is all you have, we are more than happy to accept it! Naturally, we hope that you can give more...but every single dollar helps us out during a very hard time!!
There aren't too many Welsh events in North America...please help us to keep the West Coast Eisteddfod running!!!
Donating is easy... just click on the orange "donate" box located to the right side of this blog post. Its completely safe and secure and you will NOT be hassled with spam and further money requests. We do our begging here, in full public view and hope that it is enough to encourage your generosity!!
This spoon will be our best one yet and we guarantee that whoever wins it will be getting a deal and a half!!
On behalf of the West Coast Eisteddfod, Laura and myself, we thank you if you have already donated and we thank you in advance if you haven't quite gotten 'round to it yet but are planning to soon!
