Uganda Christian Orphanage Building Fund Raiser

Uganda Christian Orphanage Building Fund Raiser

Houston, TX – Helen Cook, owner of PrimeStar Publicity and Public Relations, has set up a page on GoFundMe.com for the sole purpose of raising $25,000 US dollars to purchase land and start construction on a building to house fifty Ugandan orphans and a small staff of four.

Even though the Light for Orphans Ministry (LFOM) must be registered and licensed with the government of Uganda, they receive no support because they are a Christian ministry.

Their daily needs – food, shelter, medical, clothing and education – are provided by a small group of dedicated donors, about eleven, here in the US and one in Australia.

The “LFOM family” is currently housed in a rented facility that was slated to be a motel, in the small village of Jinja, Uganda, East Africa. However, they have already outgrown the facility that they moved into less than two years ago when their numbers were less than forty.

It would be so wonderful for them to have a permanent home; one where they can continue to grow without facing the need to have to move out once again.

If your heart is moved to do so, you can make donations to the building fund at: https://www.gofundme.com/light-for-orphans-building-fund?ssid=819941954&pos=1

Maybe you would like to become a regular donor for the monthly needs of our beautiful family. If so, you can make donations to Light for Orphans Ministry (LFOM) c/o Helen Cook, 2668 Hwy. 36 S. #127, Brenham, TX 77833.

If you would like more information about LFOM, feel free to contact me either by phone at 903-654-0938 or email, helencook53@yahoo.com.

PACAW: Changing A Culture Of Poverty And Corruption To One Of Hope Through Education For Children In Africa

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(This press release may be reprinted in part or entirety)

While ‘Paying it Forward’ might be just a catch-phrase for some, not so for Dr. Sylvanus A. Ayeni. A retired neurosurgeon and former associate professor of neurosurgery at Creighton University School of Medicine in Omaha, NE, Dr. Ayeni was born in Nigeria and witnessed first-hand how poverty and corruption robs children in Africa of their chance at an education and fulfilling life. To help change this he founded the non-profit organization Pan Africa Children Advocacy Watch (PACAW) in 2007 and, together with a team of dedicated members of the local community, they are nurturing a new generation of African leaders through access to a different educational culture.

Please read the following press release and let me know if I may schedule an interview with Dr. Ayeni. We believe many in your audience would be interested in hearing of the work being done by this remarkable organization. If you would like to run this story, we would be happy to send you a .jpg of Dr. Ayeni. Thank you for your time.

PACAW: Changing A Culture Of Poverty And Corruption To One Of Hope Through Education For Children In Africa

Bethesda, MD ― The mission of Pan Africa Children Advocacy Watch (PACAW), is to nurture and develop a new generation of African leaders via access to a different educational culture at the primary and secondary school levels. In providing the infrastructure and staff for quality education for pupils in poor underserved communities Pan Africa Children Advocacy Watch promotes change.

“We can help develop better leaders when early education focuses on turning the gaze of the children away from avarice, extortion, selfishness, the vain, and obsession with accumulation of material wealth.” Dr. Sylvanus A. Ayeni is president of the nonprofit organization. “This type of education culture at the basic and secondary school levels would prepare young people for leadership that champions the development of their nations from within, and embraces living for a higher purpose.

“We’d like to expand our programs to several states in Nigeria,” says Dr. Ayeni. “In particular we would like a presence in the delta area and the northeastern part of the country where education has been brutally decimated by stone age ideologues.” Later, they plan to establish similar programs in other countries in sub-Saharan Africa.

The Biennial PACAW Leadership Academy is the second component of PACAW’s program. The Academy is for community leaders, the teachers and interested young graduates from the country’s tertiary educational institutions. The lessons and the values learned are then passed on to the children.

The third aspect of PACAW initiatives is the Community Economic Empowerment Program, intended to lift up the community economically. The goal is to transfer the PACAW programs to the community, the local government and perhaps, the state government within about ten years. This is designed to break the cycle of dependency which is so deeply entrenched in many nations of Sub-Saharan Africa.

PACAW is governed by members of an all-volunteer board in the USA and Africa. Members of the Organizing Committees of the programs at the grassroots level in Africa are all volunteers as well. Your assistance in helping us to get generous donations to this cause would be greatly appreciated. Currently, at least 95% of donations go directly to the village (community) in Africa for the projects to fulfill the mission of PACAW, Inc.

Dr. Ayeni is a retired neurosurgeon and former associate professor of neurosurgery at Creighton University School of Medicine in Omaha, Nebraska. Born in Nigeria, he has studied and taught around the world. For more information, please visit: www.pacaw.org.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Transformation Through The Power of Fearless Recovery is Out There

Lafayette, CO – Although he has transformed from a 320-pound addict and alcoholic into an elite athlete, David Clark’s primary message is not about losing weight, kicking the habit, or the gifts of sobriety. His bestselling book, Out There: A Story of Ultra Recovery is about the power of identity. When you change how you think about yourself, he says, you change everything about yourself.

This unique perspective is inspiring others to reach deep inside and break free of destructive habits. This year, Clark and a few friends ran across country, from Los Angeles to Washington, D.C., to raise awareness about mental health issues. He also did a non-stop 48 hour treadmill run for addiction.

Now, at 45 years old, he is stepping into the Octagon for a cage fight next year. UFC Champion and Hall Of Fame fighter Pat Miletich is training and cornering him to fight in a fundraiser with the goal of raising $250,000 for heroin treatment and to show the power of fearless recovery.

Out There is a candid story of addiction and recovery; the lessons learned provide inspiration to never give up despite life’s challenges. It is brutally and unflinchingly honest, and a testament to the power of redemption and the human spirit. The audiobook has achieved bestseller status on Amazon.com.

A running coach, sponsored runner and inspirational speaker, David Clark owns a gym near Boulder, Colorado. He has competed in some of the most difficult endurance races on the planet. An elite athlete, Clark is well respected in the national running community.

“This is a story you’ll still be thinking about tomorrow,”

Encinitas, CA – Speaker, and founder and CEO of Angel Faces® (angelfaces.com), Lesia Stockall Cartelli’s newly released book, Heart of Fire (Carlyle Publishing), delivers hope and inspiration to those who are struggling with pain, emotional or physical. No stranger to pain, Lesia suffered a serious burn injury over 50% of her face and body at the age of nine in a natural gas explosion. Because of what she experienced on the long road to healing, she has devoted her life to helping others in their journey.

In her authentic open voice, Heart of Fire demonstrates how to discover blessings and gifts within any type of challenge. Throughout her life and those of the lives she touches, Heart of Fire shares the importance of opening our hearts to deeply heal what blocks our life’s pathway. Anyone who has been through hard times and seeks inspiration and hope must read this heart-warming, often humorous, story of a journey.

Lesia has transformed her pain into a life of passion and purpose. She insists that we are here on Earth to do more than simply survive. Lesia Cartelli has not only found the blessings in her tragedy, she has touched many hearts and souls through her innovative and passionate work, Angel Faces®.

Cartelli founded Angel Faces®, a unique, national nonprofit organization, which provides healing retreats and ongoing support that inspires adolescent girls and young women with burn/trauma injuries to achieve their optimum potential so they may develop meaningful relationships for them, their families, and their communities.

Heart of Fire also teaches about the power of embracing your fears. Resiliency and courage motivated Cartelli to face her fear of fire at age thirty-three. She suited up in breathing apparatus, full firefighting gear, and entered a burning building known as a “control burn.” Her fear now conquered, she married the fire captain who led her into the fire to face her fears. In Heart of Fire, Lesia shares her life-changing experience in conquering her own fear in hopes that she will inspire others.

Lesia Cartelli is a dynamic, captivating, internationally known speaker. She lives in southern California with her husband and Bently, a standard poodle. Cartelli loves adventure travel and riding her Harley Davidson.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Angel Faces Retreat – Truly A Soft Place To Fall, A Solid Foundation For Growth

Encinitas, CA – For young girls with severe and permanent disfigurement from burns or other traumatic injuries, the cruelty of the world can be almost unbearable. The stares, name-calling, teasing and cruelty of others create a sort of living hell for this special group of survivors. Lesia Cartelli knows this is true, because she lived through it herself. Her desire to heal from a serious burn injury over 50% of her face and body at the age of nine in a natural gas explosion encouraged her to create Angel Faces® for girls who suffer similar disfiguring burns and other traumatic injuries.

Angel Faces® is a national, not-for-profit organization, headquartered in Encinitas, California, whose mission is to provide healing retreats and ongoing support for adolescent girls and young women with severe and permanent disfigurement from burn/trauma injuries to achieve their optimum potential and develop meaningful relationships for themselves, their families, and their communities.

This year, the retreat for adolescent girls with severe disfigurements will be held in Wolfeboro, NH from June 21-28, with a Level 2 Retreat being added for Leadership and Mentorship training, to include Emotional Intelligence, at Brewster Academy for women ages 19-29. The girls attending this retreat are flown in from cities all around the nation.

During the multi-day intensive retreat, survivors hear first-hand from Cartelli and others who have endured serious traumatic injuries and the long road to recovery. The young girls work closely with licensed therapists to share and explore ways to facilitate emotional healing and meet others with similar struggles. They learn new tools that will help them increase their self-esteem, decrease their depressive symptoms, and have a better quality of life. Most important of all, they are given hope that they can create the life they desire through empowerment.

“The retreat is only one small component,” Cartelli explains. “We see the power in the program when the girls go back home. We receive calls, cards and emails from the parents and medical centers about how confident and content their daughter or patient is since she has returned — she joined a sports or academic team at school or now is going to prom, or interviewing for a first job, ending their social death.”

The unique retreats and aftercare programs focus on the healing process within a holistic framework of mind, heart, and spirit. In addition to art therapy and private, corrective-cosmetic sessions, the program provides licensed therapists to help the girls through their loss and trauma issues, and provides the girls with strategies to handle staring and teasing. The goal of Angel Faces® is to offer a physical, spiritual, and emotional transformation so each girl walks away with a new confidence and a hopeful outlook toward the future with the skills to be excited about their life.

In addition to being a renowned, in-demand speaker and the founder/CEO of Angel Faces®, Lesia Cartelli now adds author to her vast range of talents, having just released her new book, Heart of Fire (Carlyle Publishing). In her authentic open voice, Lesia delivers hope and inspiration to those who are struggling with pain, emotional or physical, and demonstrates how to discover blessings and gifts within any type of challenge. For anyone who has been through hard times and seeks inspiration and hope, this heart-warming, often humorous, book is a must read.

For more information on the retreat or to donate to this worthy cause, please visit the Angel Faces® website at www.angelfaces.com, or purchase Lesia’s book at www.lesiacartelli.com.

New Breakthroughs In The Drive For Peace In The Middle East: Changing Public Opinion Through Interfaith Unification

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

New Breakthroughs In The Drive For Peace In The Middle East: Changing Public Opinion Through Interfaith Unification

Houston, TX – Frank Romano, PhD, doesn’t merely talk about the possibility of sustainable peace in the Middle East, he champions programs through interfaith unification and has seen first-hand the results of these efforts. Even though he has found himself in dangerous situations, he has spent decades of his life working towards peace in the Middle East and his efforts are documented in Love and Terror in the Middle East (4th edition)

“There is definitely something positive happening right now in the US,” says Dr. Romano. “We’re realizing a favorable evolution in US public opinion. Americans are better informed and I believe this will lead to the American people demanding a louder voice on issues where the Middle East peace is concerned.”

Frank Romano’s story began decades ago with a move from California to France to study philosophy. He later ventured to Morocco on his way to the Middle East, where he was to participate in the interfaith peace movement. In his quest for the universal religion, which at first he thought might be Islam (meaning “peace”), he soon realized that the Islamic sect he met had little to do with peace and more to do with radicalism. After daring to ask questions relating to Islam and women, he was wrongly accused by Muslim extremists of being a Zionist spy and was imprisoned. This ultimately led to a spiritual awakening and, eventually, to his escape.

While Dr. Romano is due to return to his interfaith activities in the Middle East, he wants to be a part of what is certain to be more involvement by the American public relating to Middle East issues. His hope is to create a positive impact on American thinking which seems to be more open to interfaith peace activities.

Dr. Frank Romano is a lawyer, author, speaker and professor of law, literature, history and philosophy of law, and continues to be an advocate for peace in the Middle East.
