I have a gorgeous friend named Moira. She’s throwing an elaborate masquerade ball to raise funds for the Leukemia Foundation and …

She wants Lady Gaga to perform.

When she first told me about her grandiose idea, I laughed at her joke, but I should’ve known better—she wasn’t kidding. Moira has a child-like sense of fun and adventure, so her ideas are always crazy. She’s one of a kind and she’s an inspiration, especially as she’s the only 28-year-old person I know who would take the time after a hard day’s work as a pediatric physiotherapist to create a hand painted invitation for Lady Gaga. How cute is she?

Now for the tricky part … getting Lady Gaga to see it. 

In the spirit of my last post about having the chutzpa to ask important people big questions and how, if you never ask, you’ll always have a ‘no,’ I’m wondering if collectively, we can get her attention? What will happen if everyone reading this Tweets /shares this post? Lady Gaga may just notice a Tweet if it shows up in her feed 50 times. Will you help?

P.S. The ball is going to be at a beautiful baroque venue called the Abbotsford Convent in Melbourne, Australia on the 11.11.11. You’re all welcome to come. More info here, and tickets here.

When she’s not painting invitations for Lady Gaga, Moira is training to climb Mt Kilimanjaro with her partner to raise money for the Leukemia Foundation. Phil, Moira’s partner, is a Haematology Registrar at St Vincent’s hospital in Melbourne.

Please Tweet for Gaga!

Or …

Donations can be made here. They’re funding their own trip to Africa, and they hope to raise $10,000 together for Leukemia.

    Hope she comes. I also know she is a huge huge protestor and believer in bullying, you can write her about that as well and combine it with your fund raiser.

      Thanks! I wonder if I can weave that in somehow … Hmm. Masks, covering yourself up, bulling … I think there’s an angle in there somewhere!

    HI Torre, in your next trip you have to teach me how to tweet and to send text messages.
    Believe or not I can move mountains but NOT IDEA HOW TO DO THAT. I feel like a TROGLODYTE in this new technologist world….
    Great idea to ask LADY GAGA…..

      Ha ha. A lot of people aren’t on Twitter. It’s mostly for those of us with blogs or businesses. You wouldn’t have much use for it, apart from Tweeting to Lady Gaga. 🙂
