Friends of the Foundation
A Friend of the Foundation is anyone who has given their time to us, be it through participating in a planned volunteer day, helping with administrative duties, or performing at a benefit concert or after an event.
Despite the popularity of the phrase "time is money", we feel that time is, actually, more valuable than money, for a donation of time is akin to investing your whole being mind, heart, spirit, and body in a cause in which you believe; and the return on that investment is usually priceless. Your physical presence also clearly sends a message to others that something worthwhile is occurring.
The whole idea of bringing people together, particularly in this age of computers and "tele-commuting" is a major focus of the EDAF, which is why our events usually last a full day, if not a full weekend, even if the actual volunteer portion lasts only a few hours. We often hold Living Room Concerts (LRC's) in conjuction with a volunteer or donation event, and have been lucky enough to be entertained on this intimate level by incredibly talented musicians such as Randi Driscoll, Jason Mraz, and Joy Eden Harrison (for more information on these and other terrific entertainers who have donated their time to us, visit our Artists page).
If you put 10 twenty dollar bills in a room together, it's pretty safe to say nothing will get accomplished. But if you put 10 people in a room together, there's very little that could NOT be accomplished. It is not enough to say that our Friends are an important part of the Foundation. To a great degree, our Friends are the Foundation.
