10 Easy Ways to Get Involved In TIKKUNFEST

10 Easy Ways to Get Involved
By Noah Bleich, TIKKUNFEST Coordinator

There are lots of things you can do this Sunday (sleep in, go to Ikea, ponder the irony of saying “l’chaim” to life before we drink if drinking kills brain cells), but there is one thing you can do TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE THIS SUNDAY, OCTOBER 24th: TIKKUNFEST. Your contribution will change the way Angelenos see the Chood (Pico Robertson) and revive our beautiful neighborhood- all with just a shovel and a microphone. And, if you volunteer for at least 3 hours, you will get FREE admission to the after party with hundreds of other volunteers!

1. Click “YES” on Facebook!

2. Invite friends on Facebook or use more primitive tools of communication such as calling, texting, smoke signals, or if absolutely necessary, actual human-to-human invites (warning: may cause social behavior)

3. Join us to pass out flyers and talk to businesses on Wednesday October 20th, 9am-1pm…email noah@lagreenmile.com

4. Volunteer to help paint planters on Thursday October 21st, 5pm-8pm…email noah@lagreenmile

5. Email or pass out Tikkunfest flyers to your friends, family and enemies (mostly because it annoys them). Let them know they can bring their unwanted electronics, old clothes, and extra food to Tikkunfest even if they can’t stay the whole day. (We have them in PicoRobertson or Century City.

6. If you know someone who would like to sponsor a cleaner and greener Pico, have them email Noah@lagreenmile.com

7. Email us and ask questions if you are confused. We’d like to know why you haven’t clicked “YES” yet… my therapist calls this “sharing our feelings.”

8. Blog, post and add to calendars all over the web, from the LA weekly to LA Times

9. Did I mention change your Facebook reply to “YES?”

10. Don’t be late…volunteers are needed between 9am – 11:59pm. Let us know how you can help. The volunteer schedule is below:

Why Is This Party Different From All Other Parties? Vol. 1

When you throw a party you don’t need to write a detailed FAQ. But we understand that with a new thing, people need some more details. So here is the first in a series of posts with more details about the day.

Imagine a party which is not about hooking up, but about cleaning-up.

Instead of dressing to kill, you dress to get messy.

Instead of sporting nice shoes, you wear shoes that can take some punishment, or at least getting dirty.

Instead of needing to know people to get an invite, or just get in, you can pre-register, or show up on the day of, to be a part of it.

Instead of being impressed with how people dress, you will be impressed by how people work 🙂

Instead of painting the town red, see how many feet of curb you can paint red.

Instead of trashing the place, we will leave the place trashless.

You get the idea.

Beyond a service day, TIKKUNFEST is a celebration of service. Bringing together people under the umbrella of community service, social action, TIKKUNFEST features a romping concert, vendors, and good vibes. It is geared for young adults 18and over, but anyone is welcome.

TIKKUNFEST volunteers will gather at the registration point, be assigned teams, and spread out to complete a series of projects on 18 blocks of Pico Blvd. Hopefully everyone will have a chance to plant, paint, clean up garbage, sweep, wash, trim, and beautify the neighborhood.

At the moment, we are working on a few dinner options for volunteers. Make sure to bring cash or credit card for dinner.

This is a party with a purpose if there ever was one , make sure you and all your friends pre-register for chance to get a free collectible TIKKUNFEST T-Shirt!
