It’s the classic story. Band comes together and makes ridiculously funny songs for several years, they create a TV program and it has a couple of great seasons on HBO. They take some time apart and have great success still. Then reform their group and help children by raising money.
The band in question is Flight of the Conchords and they’ve partnered with some kids to write a song for Red Nose Day.
I love it for the simplicity, the naiveté and for the fun it brings.
Fighting a tough battle is what every nonprofit is doing. Laughing and encouraging people while you do it, takes a huge amount of class and it’s the kind of non-profit that inspires and attracts.
Or you could just send out a mailer and tell people how terrible everything is.
Which organization do you want to be?
