how I got chvrches post and a signed birthday card for my friend

A few days before the chvrches concert in Frankfurt I had the (insane) idea to throw a birthday card for a friend of mine on stage, with a letter asking if Lauren could just write some birthday wishes on it.
That idea grew on me, so that’s what I did:

March:

step 1: I got a stuffed animal to fix the letter on, so it would definitely hit the stage (i took this giraffe)

step 2: we made sure to be there early so we could stand in the first row, so the giraffe would definitely hit the stage.

step 3: we were standing in the first row and I fixed my envelope at the giraffe and waited for the opportunity to throw it on stage.

step 4: THROW IT!

Luckily Lauren Mayberry was standing right in front of me the whole time and I didn’t miss the stage.

my giraffe got picked up (you can see it lying on top of the box in the picture) and finally made it backstage.

The first few days after that nothing happened. And I already thought they were too busy to send it back to me or I wasn’t asking polite enough, because I didn’t really know how to ask a famous artist if they could do me a favour.

But on Thursday I found my envelope in the mailbox with two words written on it: chvrches post!

I feel so blessed and happy because I didn’t think it would all actually work out. Lauren wrote a huge birthday wish on the card and even wrote me back in a little note.

I feel so happy and I’m glad there are still bands caring about their fans, no matter how many sold out shows they have.

meanwhile Kerenza got her birthday present and is pretty excited right now. :-) someone’s birthday is saved.

and I won’t ever stop listening to Chvrches.

happy birthday,
happy end ~
