BINGO - Mother and Daughter Adventure

We'll travel around the US enjoying the game of BINGO. We'll collect whatever prize we might win, but donate all the cash to American Heart Association in memory of my father who died of heart disease at the age of 44.

We are a mother-daughter team celebrating mom's 60th birthday on the road - BINGO daubers and camera in tow. We'll travel the US and find the most interesting places to shout BINGO! All our monetary winnings will be donated to American Heart Association.

We'll showcase the areas we visit, the game and the people who love it. Oh, and all those wacky trinkets that may bring players luck. We'd love to write a book about it and give suggested routes and BINGO halls for other seniors wishing to celebrate their silver years the way.

We'll blog with stories about our bonding (or lack of) and report our winnings. And we'll post interesting, colorful images of the people, places and things. And we'll try out best to get the stories behind each adored trinket.

A 60th birthday celebration -

60 ways
60 people
60 cities

BINGO!

It's a great idea. A lot of the assignment concepts are terribly depressing - they have merit, but it is nice to see something uplifting for once.

Please check out my plan for capturing the culture of bouldering (climbers) and consider returning the vote - I would greatly appreciate it.

The imagery of folks who adore this maddening game and the interesting talisman that they cling to for luck should make for a wonderfully refreshing look at our culture. Nice idea! Have fun and good luck on all fronts.

Thank you everyone who's voted. I've got a lot of love from folks & some didn't know about my dad. My dad passed suddenly weeks after my 16th birthday. I realized today, my mom was my age, 38 years old. She was a widow at 38 & raised 3 daughters.

God Bless you, Cheryl. I hope your dream finds fruition. It sounds like a tremendous bonding adventure. I hope you do it no matter the outcome of this particular contest. I only wish my mother were alive so that I might do an adventure like this, too.

/the-ideas/zibs/bingo-mother-and-daughter-adventure/ Report Abuse Report Abuse

zibs

Father John, thanks for the blessings. But you already gave me your good wishes my first day. I'm sorry your mother is not longer with you. And I think I will do this trip no matter the outcome. I've had a great response and as you can see, only 6 of my votes are from other contestants.

I like how you stumbled on my idea right after I asked you to stop doing. Supporting others is great. I wish you were doing it under a different ID instead of one connected to your idea.

zibs, don't get worked up by others. Just do your thing. I don't even know you, but saw your ad on facebook. I clicked and was inspired enough to vote. This is the way is should be. I was checking in on you as I told friends to vote for you as well.

I see the issue w/contestants rallying for votes. Father John trying to be supportive, but also saying 'I only wished my mother was alive to do a similar adventure'. Did you miss this zibs lost her father? Slightly insensitive and I also question your actions. I'm sorry zibs.
