Melinda has been talking about how the backups gave to MNM for every tour stop she did on the Idol tour in many interviews.

What if we made donations for every city on her next tour (probably March 2011) to the Melinda Doolittle Music Scholarship.  It would be free press and maybe inspire some donations from non-backups.  What do you guys think?

I agree with Jena.   The keys words here are "enough" and able.   Dunno

It doesn't have to be a big donation.  Even $10 per tour stop would make an impact.  That's less than flowers would cost.

Keep in mind, that when the backups raised money for two Feinsteins tickets to give away, a lot of the money came from people who don't visit the boards very often.

People like Ann, Tina and Sara all donated who don't have time to visit the boards.  I believe a lot of those same people would help out with this potential project if given the opportunity.
