Antoine Hunter Need your Help to make the Deaf Dance Festival Happen

Dear Community and friends!
I need your help I am almost there, almost there!
So please share this with anyone or everyone!
It's nearly impossible to write everyone a personal letter but if you help me you will be helping me make history.
Please forgive me for mass email to you as all of you are dear to me...

You’re invited to the inaugural Bay Area Deaf Dance Festival! 

The 2013 Bay Area Deaf Dance Festival (BADDF) will celebrate the creative talents of Deaf and Hard of Hearing performing and fine artists in the disciplines of dance, music, painting, and handcrafted artisan wares.  It will include workshops in Deaf Leadership Development within the arts and will showcase the exciting results of collaborations between hearing and deaf artists. 

BADDF objectives are to:
Showcase the contributions of the Deaf community to the arts;
Raise Deaf awareness in non-deaf populations;
Cultivate interest in the arts and encourage artistic expression in Bay Area residents.

Our inaugural event will take place August 9-11, 2013 at Dance Mission Theater, 3316 24th Street (corner Mission) San Francisco.  Dance Mission is one of the best hot spots for any festival in SF and will feature a diverse variety of deaf performing artists.

We are still in need of $2,000 to present this exceptional event at its maximum potential.  We can’t do this alone, so we’re asking for your help. Please be a force in helping us produce BADDF 2013 by sending your donation in any amount.  Whatever you give from your heart will make a difference!

Thought I share w really good conversation I had with a friend.
I thought every time I go to a Bar - I have really good chat with people - so deep - I had to share-
Him: "Antoine Hunter, I was trying to be like you- I remember (yearssss ago) you would DRIVE to L.A on a business trip or to see your woman all in one day... (shaking his head)...Now when you see your woman.. after 7 hours drives, did you even have the energy to have sex??... cuzz I COULDN'T!!! "Antoine Hunter 
Me: "(was laughing on the floor- 15 mins)... (Watering eyes)...
Him: It's ain't funny,... she's mad at me and i drove all the way there... I can't even grab her cuzz my arm strong and my back so tired...
Me: Why you didn't take a nap together.. HIM: It was lunch time..
Me: Why you didn't let her feed you...
HIM: She did.. 
HIM: So how did you do it? Coffee or something.. ain't that bad for you anyway?
Me: "Man, do what work for you but for me to tell you what I did is my business and I know it ain't easy"
Him: come on man ..
Me" I can't tell you how to be superman"
Him: "Come on man."
Me: "what?"
Him:" (Hit me on my Chest) Come on MAN!" 
Me: "Ok, simple, Tell her you love her and mean it.. think about how you would make her happy like cleaning the house , cooking for her all that and knowing it would make her smile and KISS HER.. Then the energy set back in. I ain't lying it work..
Him: " ... you didnt drink Red Bull?"
