GRAND PRIZE FOR THE TOP FUNDRAISER

Dinner with Avril for you and a friend

Dinner and travel up to $2K covered by Foundation

__________________________________________________________________

 

This year for my birthday, I am asking you to join the "Team Rockstar" campaign by creating a fundraising page and inviting your friends and family to donate. By creating a fundraising page you will be supporting my Foundation's partnership with Special Olympics and sponsoring athletes' participation in the 2015 Special Olympics World Games in Los Angeles. The top fundraiser is going to win dinner with me, and 2nd through 10th place are also going to win amazing prizes including phone calls, google hangouts, signed and worn converse from me, and more!   

Special Olympics is a global movement that unleashes the human spirit through the transformative power and joy of sports, every day around the world. They empower people with intellectual disabilities to become accepted and valued members of their communities, which leads to a more respectful and inclusive society for all.

My goal is to help support 30 athletes at the 2015 Special Olympics World Games for my 30th Birthday. I challenge you all to rally, start teams and compete to help make a difference. We have some fun surprises planned along the way so I'm looking forward to seeing the results!

Every dollar counts, thank you for your support and for making my birthday wishes come true. 

-Avril

I woke up today after dreaming about having a conversation with you about why politicians don't act on issues until after it becomes a problem. It reminded me about some things we have left unfinished. So Avril I'm apologizing for abruptly ending our relationship. I could only imagine how hard it would have been at the time to have everything you needed to know but to go it alone. The time is up on our 25 year agreement. I am however not sorry for your jump to assume I would ever do anything to hurt you, that has never or will never be the case. I made the arrangement for L.A. Reid to meet with you when he was looking to sign me after I helped Usher. Throughout our friendship since I met you when I was 8 I had been working to get you into music. My past at the time was filled with violence, gangsters, and drugs to say the least. It seemed to me like something good and noble to help someone actually live their dream. So I began working and learning how to do this for people so I could do it for you. I know I was the one who told you to wait until I contact you and that time has come. I am expecting that some part of our friendship still exists. I still consider you my best friend only because you were the one who cared across all the points in my life to check up on me even though I was so far away. Sometime in the future I will be writing a book to cover how hard my life has been and what it took to overcome all obstacles from pain to memory loss, losing family and friends, my tortures, my failures, and my sacrifices all in the name of love to overcome and live a life of peace with full strength and well being. As a part of that I ensure people keep their commitments to me. I will be looking for what you owe me, for you to keep your end and your promises to me. Remember to me everyone is an individual judged equally to any other, you are no exception even if you are my friend. What you agreed to was to meet with me, return my notebooks and to show me your success. Then I will speak with you about the favor you owe me. I am also curious if LA Reid gave you the letter I asked him to give to you. I know you are probably the last person I should expect to keep their promise to me, which is actually why I think you will be the first who will. In either case I wish you a very Happy Birthday 25 times over and wish for you nothing but the best. Your BFF Kronah 3 years ago

DONATION: $25

I actually wanted to write something else and a chance at a nice guitar seems like a good reason to donate. There was a large part of me that had been feeling down until I wrote the first tribute in memory of comment. The stress of not being able to make things right or at least try was really heavy. A long time ago I had a dream you died in my arms, as you know dreams aren't just dreams sometimes. I'm not saying it's right, but it wasn't right for me to let that happen. To the good memories (the few from my youth are mostly with you) and eternal friendship (as even though are lives move on and we are moving farther and farther away from each other) as I sing the songs I made with you in mind that float on the airwaves in tribute of the best damn thing in the world you remind me to aspire to have, unconditional love. It would be my hope one day that you would be close friend to Elizabeth and I, and perhaps be there for our wedding. I hope one day you understand why I gave up everything for my best friend and learn how hard my life has been through my works to come and how you lead me to the one who was meant for me. No matter what I have to be grateful for that even if no one knows or understands what it means. If you took the time to read this I thank you from the bottom of my heart and wish for all your dreams to come true. :) 3 years ago

When you read this, I want you to remember the very first thing I said to you. It was when we were real little and friends with each other. It doesn't matter what you or I say or do, since when we were little I felt the same about you, which you know. You're the friend I've had the longest, even if we don't talk anymore we are never so far apart in this small world. I will always see you as my oldest friend and will never forget what that means. Happy Birthday Avy La Lavy for all the birthdays before and after that I will only be there in spirit. After you retire perhaps that dream Chad had about the 4 of us (including Elizabeth, the woman I'm betrothed to) will come true. Take care of yourself little one. 3 years ago
