I created this page to present an opportunity for those in Modesto (or anybody) to show some love to our local downtown singer, Dellanora Green.
For those that have been to Brendan Theaters or even hung around downtown Modesto, I'm sure you all have met her or heard her singing. She does ask for any donations to get by but is always gracious if you cannot help.
I came across this article today and read about how she was recently fined for singing in public- and was part of a crackdown on "pan handling" downtown. http://www.fox40.com/news/headlines/ktxl-modesto-woman-claims-she-was-fined-for-singing-in-public-20121002,0,4905044.story
She tries to make do with what she has and offers her singing as a way to make an honest living. I would love to be able to see if we can come together and collect some donations for her to maybe help her get on her feet and start a new and better life..or at least head that direction.
$1, $2...anything will help and I would love to plan a time to present the collected donations to her during a gathering of sorts where we can show her our support.
I am a true believer in paying it forward, good karma and ultimately coming together to support a cause or a person who I feel can benefit from the kindness of our hearts.
This is my first time starting this fundraiser so I hope it will be successful and we can put a nice big smile on Dellanora's face. I placed a deadline by Christmas to maybe be able to present the collected funds for her by this time- would be a great present! Any questions feel free to email me! firstname.lastname@example.org
