My Fundraising Dream in Paris

Jump to last reply

I might be out of my mind but that's usually where my best ideas come from. The first time I went to Paris I had this vision of putting together an event that will fund raise for a cause. No experience doing anything like that so I'm fully aware of the learning curve. I love throwing parties but have only done it in a smaller scale (family and friends). The idea in my head is it will be in Paris, around 50-200 people (flexible), luxury experience that someone like me can afford (50-100 euros).

Where, How, When, What: Those have not been decided yet. I will need your help!

I'm trying to figure out what I want to do for the rest of my life and I decided to start with something I love. I love creating, I love Paris, I love food, I love quality wine and liquors, I love beauty, I love people who care beyond themselves, I love feeling productive, I love achieving a goal, I love the potential of opportunities that might come out from this, I love thinking big and outside of the box, and most importantly, there is nothing that feels more fulfilling than living the life you love and helping others while you're at it.

What I don't love: feeling insanely intimidated, feeling like there is no way I can pull this off because I don't speak French, I've only been to Paris a few times and constantly still get lost after 3 months there, feeling humiliated if it doesn't turn out well, feeling no one will come to the event, the feelings of self doubt, the feelings really come from an endless pit that I constantly try to beat down with self empowering feelings.

I know it might be a silly dream but I really want to do it. I know I can do it and do it incredibly well. I just need to prepare what needs to be prepared to experience a memorable fund raising event.

All input welcome. Merci.
