Nothing like uplifting the poor with Fire dances and juggling hippies.

This is what their souls hanker for.
The real inner necessity of all souls of for fire dancing and juggling hippies.

Keep up the good work!!!

What, we should all dress in dhoti and tilak, chant Hare Krishna and sell budget samosas or something?

Some nuances of the "charity concert" concept may have gone missing for you... People want entertainment, so we blend in entertainment and charity.

A bit back there was another similar event that was bundled with wide-scale local garbage collection. You have a good time, you help advance good things. Sounds pretty good to me!
