If Carly Rae Jepsen ever has any future charity events at cafes, I will be there and you should be there too. We should all go to show our support because she seems like a nice girl and her most recent event did not go so well. Not so well at all. Carly Rae Jepsen hosted a charity event and only about 20 people showed up. The event was held at Davids Tea in Toronto and was part of their Cup of Warmth Campaign. The low turn out is especially sad when you hear that the Cup of Warmth Campaign is built around the idea that for each cup of tea sold, a cup of tea would be donated. Their goal was 30,000 cups. So... yeah, 20 cups of tea sold, 20 cups of tea — you get the idea. Hopefully someone, maybe Jepsen or the company itself, decided to go ahead and buy a few more cups themselves.
Jepsen didn't appear to be upset about the situation. She seemed happy to be there and took photos with those who did show up. She uploaded one picture to her Instagram account which shows her smiling and holding a cup of Davids tea while posing with several fans. A sign in front of the group shows a drawing of Jepsen with "Steep Me Maybe" written underneath. She should probably put out a new song soon since "Call Me Maybe" puns are obviously not drumming up interest anymore.
For now, Jepsen has her Broadway debut to look forward to. The singer will star in Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella starting Feb. 4. Maybe for her next event, Jepsen can go to a coffee shop. Pumpkin Carriage Spice Latte might make for a better selling point.
