From Experience

Let me tell you a true story.  The year is constantly filled with announcement of events, and the decision whether or not to attend these events. When Above & Beyond announced their inaugural Anjunbeachevent, I approached this event just like any other. I tried to figure out whether I could afford to attend as well as other circumstances. As a person who has had a lot of adversity to overcome concerning life, I know what it is like to miss out on something so great. On the other hand, I have found ways in the past to attend events despite my hardships.

This time, I knew that I wasn't going to be able to attend. I was actually content with this reality. While attending a local trance event, a few friends encouraged me to attend. My response of my current financial strain was met with a couple of friends offering to help me out. I am forever grateful despite my apprehension to take the help provided to me. 

As founder of We Event Organization, I want to help others in my situat…

Well over a month ago, the first nominee of We Event Organization was sent to the community (We Event Group on Facebook). Heather Nicole A.K.A DJ Hey has been working hard to overcome adversity to have a lasting career as a trance music DJ. As a person who has been blind since birth, many probably have written her off as a DJ, however, her passion to hone her craft has not gone unnoticed.  In a chat on Trending Topics with BB Podcast, Heather talks about her hard work and passion for trance music. 

This being explained, the first EVER campaign to help one go to the event of their dreams has begun.  Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas has become a huge event for those who love the electronic music scene. Many different genres are represented over three days along with art and community to create a world to be yourself.  It has always been a goal of Heather's to attend, but financial strain and logistical strain have hindered her attempts.

How This Works

You are probably thinking the following questions:
Aren't there organizations like this already established?What sets it apart from other organizations?If these people need it, why haven't they created a GoFundMe campaign? Yes, there are many different non-profit organizations already established, but with the following explanation, you will understand why you will want to get involved.  The idea for We Event Organization came after founder Brooke Brown stumbled across a discussion in a Facebook group where the person asked what said experience at said concert was like following the information that this person has NEVER been able to afford to attend this artist's concert. This sparked the idea that it must be happening across all fan communities for many different events.  Why not expand this to ALLevents?
To address the GoFundMe question, while a great idea and platform, people have found a way "to abuse" the system.  People encounter financial hardships daily,…
