Are You Ready?

Are you ready to be a part of something amazing? Are you ready to manufacture miracles. We are. The Selection Committee is currently hard at work finding families to assist. The Program Committee has dotted every I and crossed every T and has only to set up Jones Plaza for what will be a magical evening. The beers will be cold, the food will be great and the entertainment will be electrifying. A guitar signed by every member of The Rolling Stones, an autographed Michael Jackson album, an autographed KISS album will all have new homes and someone will be off to The Grammy Awards, the NBA All Star Game and be a fighter pilot for a day.

All of these wonderful items will be the fuel in the foundries that manufacture miracles. So the question is, what are you doing on Saturday. No matter what it is, it is not cooler than manufacturing miracles. So see you at Jones Plaza on Saturday from 6-11pm.

Go to for your discounted tickets now!

Keep The Change!

The Selection Process Has Begun

The Selection Committee has begun its process to select recipients for Rocktoberfest. The news will be monitored for stories of tragic events, the families will be contacted to see if assistance is available for them. Then the board of directors will vote on which families will be helped on the night before the event. If you are interested in volunteering for this committee please email

A Special Thanks to Kroger

The Board of Directors would like to thank Kroger for their continued support of the Fanatical Change Foundation. We received a commitment from Kroger for a $1000 donation that will go to help the beneficiaries of our Rocktoberfest event on October 1. We commend Kroger for their dedication to serving the Houston community, and for extending a helping hand to those in dire need.

Thank You Indy Quest!

Special thanks to Creston and Holly Inderrieden of Indy Quest. They are not only rising stars in real estate (no really they are, the Houston Area Realtor's Nextgen Realtor Group named them among the 20 Rising Stars Under 40) these fledgling philanthropists have put us $1,000 closer to our goal of $100,000. Thank you so much Creston & Holly. We will see you on the delivery since your donation qualifies you to come along and deliver the goods and services to the families we help. Talk about restoring intimacy! You don't get to watch the video, you get to come on the bus for the delivery and be in the video!!!

We want two or three buses. Any donation of $1,000 or more earns the donor a spot on the bus to deliver the goods and services. Once you experience selfless giving on this scale your life will never be the same. To bring a smile to a woman's face who just lost her child or bring a father whose children are laying in hospital maimed while he morns the death of his wife relief is like nothing else on this earth. It is the only payoff that anyone involved with running Fanatical Change gets since it is a 100% volunteer organization. But this payoff is priceless. That kind of emotional connection with another human being cannot be bought, imitated or forgotten.

Complete Property Services Comes Through Again!

The Board of Directors would like to thank Glen Dickson of Complete Property Services for his continued support of Fanatical Change. Glen has been at every event since the very beginning. Your loyalty to our cause is extremely appreciated and as a result of your generosity we will be able to deliver a miracle to family in need.

For more information about this amazing company and how they can help you, please click on their logo above.

Thanks Again,

The Fanatical Change Board of Directors

This donation is sure to have a huge impact for the families that will be helped as a result of Rocktoberfest coming up on October 1st at Jones Plaza. All donations of $1,000 or more or becoming a core volunteer will earn you a spot on the bus for the delivery. This is the most rewarding part of the process. It is incredibleto see the impact of your donations on the website after the delivery, but it is a life changing experience to actually participate. This boost is sure to make Rocktoberfest a success however we are only at 25% of our goal of $100,000 and this will provide assistance to 20 Houston families. We need your help. Get involved. Tell your boss, tell your friends and family, come and volunteer. For information on how to volunteer please send an email to

There are two types of people in this world; the ones one the inside and the ones on the outside. Are you an insider? Are you one of the over 200 people who have registered thus far?

If so this is where you will be hanging out tomorrow:

If so: you will be the one who will be telling people on Friday what an amazing time you had at the Fanatical Change Rocktoberfest Pre-Party. If you are really an insider you will be discussing it with someone who attended. (hint: bring lots of friends)

Don't get left out. Register at the top of this page. Be an insider. Because if you dont come, when you hear about the party and how great it was (and now that you read this) you will know that you are an outsider.

It is way cooler to be an insider.

See You Tomorrow!

Keep the Change.

Here is some video of our last event so if you were not there you can see not only what you missed but what to expect.

Have you ever had your house or your car broken into? I have, and it’s a pretty frustrating experience! Well, don’t worry about that with Fanatical Change, we WANT you to steal our ideas and start spreading some change!

Too tired to steal? That’s okay, you can just join us while we plan our next event (a Cinco de Mayo Party) on May 5th. Don't worry, you don't have to do much… just help us decide what will make a great party and we'll execute the rest.

I want to invite you and a GUEST to our next volunteer meeting on Wednesday March 2nd at 6:30PM. Remember, it's so early in the planning process that there's not heavy lifting, just heavy thinking… on ideas for our next event.

The Planning Begins!

Hello Change Agents!
It is that time again! Time to start planning the next Fanatical Change event! Tonight, January 18, 2011 the Change Agents will gather at Panera Bread on San Felipe and Post Oak in the Galleria area to start planning for the next event. This is your opportunity to get in on the ground floor.

Don't worry, we know you're busy. That's why we created SPEED VOLUNTEERING. With SPEED VOLUNTEERING we assign only short and simple tasks that have very little or no follow-up required so even our busiest friends can contribute to the change. Send an email to for details with "SPEED VOLUNTEERING" in the subject line.

See You Soon!

Keep The Change!
