Bingo is a Very Strange Game

By

And I was ready to give it my all for TWIF, The World is Fun, which pairs volunteers and service agencies. Kinda like online dating, with CLOUT - TWIF, in its 10 years, has generated $1.8M in hours to its partners. TWIF lists events which over 135 non-profits hold as fundraising or community opportunities, from helping kids learn math with Zeno, to chopping the onions with FareStart.

 

TWIF's Galentine's Day Bingo Soiree was a fundraiser on its own behalf - macarons, chances to meet new people. And a game involving nothing but dumb luck - NO skill, and stamps that can never be allowed in the hands of toddlers. Not nearly the same thrill as Safeway Monopoly, worrying over the glue, perfecting my shopping schedule and lists. I did find the hiccuping ball machine very amusing. Can you tell I'd never played before? Stretched myself a little past old-rubber-band. My only previous exposure - passing the open air tents at State Fairs, hearing the barkers call numbers. That's skill!

 

The most amazing aspect of TWIF? No paid staff. Awe-inspiring dedication.

I like the concept of TWIF! Adults need to play more, laugh more, and just have fun. Did you get to shout out, "BINGO!" Lauren?

Good morning Lauren. What a fun post about a fun activity. I went a couple of times decades ago and while I never won, I had a good time.
