    we do it for you

    Hi there,

    I've read " we do it for you and we do it to you" (that was written in an advertisement about a play)
    My doubt is about what they mean using the prepositions for and to.
    Could you help?

    Thank you

    Hey Carla.

    for you = for your benefit

    to you = to affect you

    The ad could mean,

    We [do it] put the play on for [you] your benefit and we [do it] do this to affect your emotions, your feelings, your ... ."
