Let's Drum for a Cause...Let's Drum for MS

It is always a great thing to participate for causes, and get involved with many of the issues of society today. I would like to invite you all to Let's Drum for a cause...Let's Drum for MS. As of 2008 between 2 and 2.5 million people are affected globally by this disease, and there is no known cure. Treatments and medications only attempt to improve funcntion after an attack, and also prevent new attacks from occuring.  

     I think this would be a great opportunity to come out and drum, supporting people around the world living with MS. Proceeds and Donations from this meetup will be going to the MS Society, and any donation is welcome. If we have a nice amount of people we can take a nice group pic!, and let everybody, incuding the MS Society, know how exactly we participated. Let's bring out our good spirits, and let's Drum to make a difference!  

     Please bring any drum, or small instrument you may have, inculding as many extras you have to provide for your fellow members. We will try our best to provide a drum, or small instrument for anyone that does not have. We have plenty of chairs, but you can bring one of your own if you would like to. Also, please feel free to bring a beverage, food, or snack! ....We hope you will join us for this Drum for MS....Hope to see you there!

I thought we sounded great, and had some really nice rhythms going!..Thanks for supporting the cause everyone. Donations will be sent out this week, on behalf of Brooklyn Drum Circles, and if we happen to receive any kind of nice response, or donation certificate of some sort from the MS Society, I will certainly let everyone know!

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
