Raising the bar – It’s All Relative #2

It's All Relative

 I’ve been reflecting recently, on the crazy things we do for charity and how some of the strangest projects yield the greatest result.

I was approached, a few years ago, to write a script for a murder mystery event. I had the added challenge of writing it for actors who would perform in British Sign Language. It was actually easier than I thought. By studying the actors and listening to their ideas for a character (after I’d given them a name and role in the event), they began to take shape pretty quickly – we talked at length about how they would walk, talk and react, and then I pretty much left it in the actors capable hands.

The group designed the room, the invitations, the theme, and all I had to do was create a timetable of events and turn up! Okay, it was a little more complicated than that, but what began as the germ of an idea turned into a fantastic fun-filled evening – thanks to a talented group of people.

So for this week’s challenge I’d like to hear your stories. What’s the craziest, funniest, hardest, or most enjoyable thing you’ve done for a good cause?

Here are a few guidelines:

  1. Create a post based on the prompt and provide a pingback or link in the comments section.

  2. Any form of non-fiction is accepted.

  3. You can use the prompt in any way you see fit, as long as the post is based (loosely) on the topic.

Thanks in advance for your participation.
