It has always been my intention with this site to promote doll shows, businesses and clubs to further the industry any way I can. Over the last few years, many events have "given up" and stopped doing the shows and events that have been around for years and years. This saddens me. I know its hard and you are tired, but the fact is, with just a little bit of effort, things can be turned around. My site has all the information readily available 24/7 to make a difference. There are some who say they are old and don't know anything about email or computers, etc. For each that don't know, there is someone who does whether it be a friend or family member. Everyone knows someone. But, things do need to be put in place without prejudice.
What I'm asking is that everyone make it a point to be more proactive this season. Go to an event, offer to help with emails or Facebook. It's all here, you just have to look. It really doesn't take much time considering the benefits it brings to all of us. And, if you get stuck, I'm always there and happy to help.
