THIS IS AN EXAMPLE OF CRITICAL TIPS WE’LL BE SHARING! DO YOU KNOW THE ANSWER?
IF folks DON’T KNOW WHAT THEY DON’T KNOW, how can they find what they need? CASE IN POINT: The NATIONAL SUICIDE PREVENTION HOTLINE NUMBER is available for everyone to call. Do You Know It?
Did you know that if your children have it memorized and their friend or someone near is about to take their life, they can call that number, put their phone on speaker and get professional help for that individual immediately. If someone you’re speaking to long distance is in that place, you can conference call them in and get them immediate help. THIS SAVES LIVES!
Oh, By The Way, the HOTLINE # 988.

ENTERTAINMENT & PERFORMERS
ENCOURAGING LIVE MUSIC, COMEDY, DANCE, & THEATRICAL PERFORMANCES, ETC.
The following are just some possible suggestions, but the events will be designed for the needs and desires of each individual community.
We will be inviting performers who can promote encouragement and hope in what they do, not add to the problem with some of the stuff out there. There can be a speaker who wraps up the event as well. Each community can choose and help plan their own event, including adding a theme to it.
There can be concerts with well-known artists to end the event in the evening if so desired and available. This is not a superstar event, rather, it’s a group of individuals, local and national, using their God-given gifts and talents to help their communities. However, a well-known artist can pull in extra funds. We might be able to use their stage and equipment for the whole day.
Each performer gets their own booth to sell their merchandise and share their information and story. Hopefully, something with their story on it or links to their website. This will help encourage others to go for their dreams.
ADVERTISERS | SPONSORS
1. Advertisers will have space on projector screens for their promotions with a QR Code to their landing page and perhaps their website or social media page of choice.
2. With some promotions, the customer/client has a chance to go to the landing page and tag them on social media as being at the event for a reward, perhaps a free raffle ticket. This will add to the effectiveness of the advertising for the ad client. Promote this on your social media, show your post to an event official and get a free raffle ticket or something else.
3. Can have smaller monitors in various area, including restrooms for additional advertising.
Throughout the day, the MC will showcase each of the advertisers. If they are present, perhaps point them out or bring them on stage for their own short, live commercial.
1. Booths may be rented at the event for businesses, services, orgs. etc. This provides one-on-one contact with attendees of the event. These proceeds will go towards paying for the event.
Printed ads and promotions may be posted on special announcement boards or on select tables and booths.
FUN & GAMES
FREE & PAY Games for children and adults. Bounce houses, rides and games. Petting zoo and animal rides. Pets that can be adopted.
Carnival games where attendees can pay to win certain items, stuffed animals, such as a ring toss, darts, etc. Part of that money goes to help pay for the event.
FIRE & POLICE
Get to know your local firemen and police. They are our friends and neighbors in the community too.
PETTING ZOO/HORSEBACK RIDING
In some events, depending on the local community, petting zoos with horseback rides can be implemented. Horses are great in helping with mental health.
When possible. Get to know the talent in your local community. Just because we have social media, we really don’t know those in our community. Actors, Singers, Musicians, Dancers, Rodeo and other talents. Talent shows are a great way to showcase local talent.
Multiple Categories | Food Trucks | Tailgate | Etc.
FARMER’S MARKET | CRAFT SHOW
Farmers can sell their goods at a rental booth. Ranchers can sell their beef or products. Other vendors can showcase their crafts and sell their stuff.
LOCAL FOOD PANTRY
For those who need food and other kinds of help. This can be in conjunction with outreach services, local ministries and churches.
Each local community has certain special cultural groups, local performers, etc. There can be more than one area set up for performances based on the size of the area for these events. There can be performances indoors as well as outdoors. There can be chefs showing how to cook some meals. There can be crafts with those teaching/sharing some secrets or advice. The sky is the limit.
GameChangers Universal has it’s own theatrical performance, but others can be used in addition to, or instead of. Let each community be creative and show off their arts to help the community as a whole.
FILM VIEWING & FILMING
Each event should be filmed for promotional purposes and so future events can be improved and/or shown to new communities as examples they can glean from for their events. It would be great to get some drone footage as well. Movies & Films can also be shown, information helping the community.
Event merchandise, such as t-shirts, caps, koozies, water bottles may be sold, included in the raffles, etc. This merchandise can be the America Dare To Dream info, and/or include the theme of the event.
Raffles can be provided to raise extra funds for the event and/or for certain organizations or local projects.
LEGAL ADVICE | DOCUMENTS | COUNSELING | HOMELESS | UTILITIES
If there is a governmental or non-profit service in or near the community that can offer help or set up appointments. Some folks just don’t know how to get help. A list of help agencies and non-profits.
Designated monies above and beyond the cost of the event can be given to certain charities.
Where applicable and if permitted.
Will need security. Will alcohol be served? Insurance? Emergency Services on standby or on sight. Any other services and for water, electricity, etc.

Using Entertainment, We Assist With Mental Health, Combat Suicide,
& Help Businesses & Local Communities Flourish!
Using multiple types and genres of entertainment, (music, comedy, dance, theatrical productions, art, etc.), we will join with and establish events and venues in local communities across the USA and to other countries as requested/provided. The mission focuses on using entertainment to draw out of isolation those who need help in each community in addition to the rest of the those living in the community. The entertainment must be encouraging, challenging, fun, and uplifting in order to help those who might be struggling with life. Anything detrimental to the health and well-being of the community will not be allowed in the events.
In each venue, we will reach out to the local community in an atmosphere of fun and safety in order to get to know and to help one another. We want to bring out of isolation those who may be struggling with mental health issues and perhaps contemplating suicide. Isolation is their worst enemy! By getting folks together, perhaps we will find that we have things in common and might be able to help each other pursue our Life and/or God-given dreams. At the very least, we can have fun, encourage one another and offer hope to those who are hopeless and about to give up and check out of life. The main theme is to have fun and to help each other go for our dreams. Everyone matters! Everyone counts! AND the community wins as a whole! When a person is focused on their dream, depression takes a back seat, it’s behind them, 180°. Crime drops too, when folks are doing what they were created to do!
While our main goal is to target suicide and assist with mental health, the total well-being of the community is our focus as well. If we can help prevent suicides, then we are ahead of the curve by not having to do a lot of counseling and outreach to help families, friends, and peers as they deal with all the broken pieces and devastation left behind, which is also a costly process. In doing this, we can help each community become closer knit with a focus of watching out for and helping each other.
The premise behind the concept of helping each pursue their Life & God-Given Dreams, is the truth that we are all connected to each other. Our dreams being fulfilled depend on others and their dreams depend on us in some form or fashion. No one is an island unto themselves and will eventually crash and burn alone. We see examples of folks helping each other when catastrophes happen. Communities and individuals come together to help rebuild. However, what we are doing is promoting this togetherness on a yearly, monthly, and daily basis in times of normalcy as well. We may hold a key to someone else’s future in our hand, but they in turn may hold one for us, whether personally or through someone they know.
