Charity Through Fundraising

Many Australian charities are supported through various kinds of fundraising events. The school lamington drive or selling chocolates door-to-door are well known in most communities. Many children’s charities could not exist without this generous support from the community; however, people do get tired of the same fundraising event over and over.

Why not make the next fundraising event a little different? In these days of computer technology, an online store for your chosen charity would be appropriate. It not only saves a great deal of time, but is relatively easy to set up.

Not everyone likes to be asked to buy something when they answer that ring on their front door bell. But nearly everyone likes to spend time on their computer and many people have become used to shopping this way. If your fundraising includes things to buy that are practical and useful, then many more people are likely to buy from you and support your charity.

You can make the product something that is personal to each person. For instance, you could offer photo mugs that they will upload their own photo for. This gives supporters a chance to buy something that is unique to them alone. Such a mug will make a beautiful gift for family members, so it is useful too. It will meet a need for a gift in a way that is easy and fun.

If you added other things such as key rings, calendars, photo books, mouse pads and T-shirts you would get a great many more buyers. People would buy because those are things they need anyway. So really you are fulfilling a need in the community as well as helping out a charity – something that will make any fund-raising event successful.

Once your fund-raising event has an online presence it is possible to attract a great many more donors than you could do locally. People all over Australia would be able to find your website and buy goods from your online store.

Sarantos Christmas CD tracks have been getting quite a bit of airplay and here come 23 videos for the fans on top of that.

(PRWEB) December 11, 2014

Sarantos Christmas CD tracks have been getting quite a bit of airplay and here come 23 videos for the fans on top of that.

Sarantos released a Christmas album on November 28, 2014. This is a wonderful collection of 4 brand new original Christmas songs, 10 covers of Christmas classics and 9 inspirational Christmas short stories. Families will enjoy listening to this CD every Christmas season…

Sarantos has once again surprised fans by releasing a lyric music video for each of the 23 tracks over 23 days! That means every day from December 1st until the 23rd, fans have been treated to a new music lyric video. Where did Sarantos get this idea – from the fans of course.

“A few fans have asked about lyric videos,” says Sarantos. “Since I love Christmas and had 23 tracks on this dual CD, I figured this would be a great time to surprise everyone and release 23 music lyric videos for the fans. I was going to release them all at once but had a cool fan suggest I do it each day over 23 days. I figured, what a great idea!. Moving forward, I plan on also releasing a new lyric music video every month! I love it when the fans send me great ideas and I’ve incorporated quite a few. My fans are just so awesome!”

33% of any music-related sales profits from this Christmas CD are going straight to the chosen charity – the Salvation Army. Shoppers always see them in the cold ringing their bell during the holiday season. Now, Sarantos hopes to be able to add something to their red container.

Sarantos music has received rave reviews and he relishes this chance to pursue his life long dream.

Sarantos unique sound has been best described by industry insiders as “an emotionally powerful vocal style masterfully united with music that is a fusion of classic 80s rock blended with modern soft rock and pop music!”

Sarantos currently has over 1.4M Social Media followers and is rated #6 on Reverbnation in the pop genre worldwide. Sarantos performed at the Toronto Music Festival on May 6th to a sold out live audience.

Sarantos was nominated for 2 awards for the 2014 International Music & Entertainments Awards for the categories of “Rock Song of the Year” and “Pop Album of the Year”.

With recorded hits and new tunes waiting to be released every single month until the day he dies, Sarantos music screams success and stimulates an overdue conversation in the changing music industry. Sarantos loyal music fans continue to show their support by proudly showing off Sarantos merchandise and staying tuned into Sarantos daily down-to-earth and very real social media revelations. His songs are being broadcast every day on various radios stations around the world. Sarantos continues to do interviews around the world every single week and fans can listen in to some of them on his YouTube page. Let’s not forget his funny, sarcastic, witty and genuine music videos that leave his fans not knowing what to expect next.

There will be plenty of continued buzz throughout the year as Sarantos strives to release something for his fans every single week! Every year until the day he dies, Sarantos will release a new song on the 1st Tuesday of every month, a new music video on the 2nd Tuesday of every month, a chapter from his fiction/fantasy book on the 3rd Tuesday of every month, and a new Whiteboard video on the 4th Tuesday of every month. A new CD will then be released every November.

Sarantos has been writing lyrics since 4th grade and is passionate about the words he puts to the music. Music was always in his blood. Music was always a passion and much more than a hobby. Sarantos has written over 2,000 songs!

Having undergone several personal challenges with Sarantos’ father passing away four years ago after a long hard-fought battle with lung cancer, dealing with personal health issues like asthma and allergies which affected his singing style, going thru life’s ups & downs, the timing was finally right. And so it began. Sarantos main motivation remains, however, to raise money for charity.

33% of any music related sales are going straight to charity!

Sarantos has always been inclined to help people in need and is proud to launch his music as a way to donate a portion of proceeds to charity, hopefully inspiring other artists to do the same. Just a few of the charities chosen so far include American Cancer Society, American Lung Association, Make-a-Wish Foundation, American Heart Association, St Jude’s, Hellenic Academy, ASERF, American Red Cross, Salvaton Army, Children’s Hospital of Chicago, Chicago Medical School, Thanioton Society & the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

The website, Melogia (which in Greek means “with words”) was established by Sarantos, an aspiring singer and song writer.

*Remember, fans can always find all of Sarantos songs, lyric sheets, videos and books on his website for free at Share his song mp3s for free with anyone you want via email or any of the social media platforms.

Sarantos Mission or Goal:

My goal when you listen to one of my songs is very simple. I want you to feel the need to:


-Dance or move to the groove

-Play the song over and over again

Ignite Partnership Serves as a Lead Sponsor of Event That Raises $200,000 for Orphaned Children

DALLAS (PRWEB) December 04, 2014

Ignite Partnership, the premiere product launch agency for national brands, today announced its participation in an annual fundraiser and gala that raised $ 200,000 for abandoned children.

Ignite Partnership was among four Diamond Sponsors of the event held by the Road Ahead Foundation, whose mission is to help children abandoned by their parents. Titled “The Roads We Choose,” the event was held November 12 at The Ritz-Carlton, Dallas, hotel. It featured a keynote address and question-and-answer session with former First Lady Laura Bush.

“We are so pleased to have been involved in such a great event benefitting this worthy charity,” said Tripp Bushnell, vice president and co-founder of Ignite Partnership. “It’s especially gratifying to use our talents to create visuals and messages that help in a small way to make a difference in the lives of abandoned children.”

Proceeds from this year’s event went to the St. Ann’s Center for Children, Youth and Families, a home in Hyattsville, Maryland, for abused, neglected, and abandoned children and pregnant and parenting teenage women. Ignite created promotional and creative materials for the event, including an Encouragement Card that allowed attendees to put their thoughts, hopes and prayers into words to give to the children at St. Ann’s.

Mrs. Bush spoke to the audience about her personal experiences working with children in need and the important role that communities and individuals play in changing the paths of those children’s lives. The former First Lady also took questions on everything from her time in the White House to her experiences on the day of the September 11th terror attacks.

The Road Ahead Foundation was established in 2008 with the mission to help children abandoned by their parents. The foundation provides education to businesses and groups on ways to help provide direction and leadership in the lives of these children.

Foundation Founder Michael Koch said, “It was a privilege to bring together this group of concerned and compassionate people who believe that every child regardless of status deserves a voice and a chance. Our efforts in educating America that the worldwide crisis with orphans is not over was well received at the event, with numerous action plans derived from the participating vendors. We were especially honored this year by the participation of former First Lady Mrs. Laura Bush. Her elegance, humor and personality carried the night for a crowd of nearly 200.”

Blood Donation ? An Act of Benevolence

Donating blood is like gifting a new life. Blood donation is a very noble act, as losing just a pint of blood would make no difference to a healthy individual, while a needy patient may get a new life. But this noble act is also being misused by some parts of the society.

There have been many cases where donated blood, which is supposed to be supplied for free to the needy, is sold to the patients by unscrupulous medical practitioners. This act is very wrong and against human rights. This may be a result of lack of awareness of the facilities of donated blood available for free. The masses should be educated that donated blood is free for every needy person and not for sale.

There are also many cases reported about the undue advantage taken of the high demand of blood in hospitals. Because there is not ample supply matching the high demands, people sell blood, which is not safe. There may be a possibility that it is HIV infected. This problem should be addressed with the intervention of Govt. for stopping the vice, which discourages people from donating blood. It should be specified that the donation programs are voluntary and even the blood is available for free, as selling blood is inhumane and should not be entertained for interests of selfish people.

A blood donation session should also have a pre and post donation counseling and the facilities to transport blood in emergencies to various places and to provide provides test results to blood donors in addition to ensuring retention of the blood donors. It is very important to ensure timely supply of safe blood throughout the world.

Blood donation is not only an act of humanity but also of communal harmony. There have been many cases wherein people of different religions have donated blood for total strangers only as a noble act of humanity which breeds communal harmony. This act itself talks about humanity as strangers donate blood not knowing who would be its recipient. One should be aware that one unit of blood can save four lives and it is better to shed such narrow and racist thoughts of donating blood only to people of one community.

There is also a great initiative taken of opening blood donation camps in the mosques, a place of worship for the Islamic religious sect. If all the religious sects start following such an initiative, the demands of blood supply could be surely met.

Here author is giving you a complete information about medical products, medical news, blood donation, healthcare news. A blood donation occurs when a person voluntarily has blood drawn and used for transfusions or made into medications by a process called fractionation.

Performing Dance Arts Announces Pyjama & Book Drive

Toronto, Canada (PRWEB) November 24, 2014

Performing Dance Arts (, Toronto’s leading dance studio for children of all skill levels, is announcing its 2014 holiday pyjama and storybook drive. Donations will be made to Yellowbrick House and Pathways, two charities based in York Region.

“It’s a fun way to make a difference for the holidays,” says Ashley Daychak, artistic director at Performing Dance Arts. “Kids get so much more than just dance lessons at our studios and this is one of those times we can really teach them about the importance of giving while still keeping things light.”

From December 8–13, Performing Dance Arts encourages all their student dancers to come to their dance lessons dressed in their favourite pyjamas. They’ll have an opportunity to donate pyjamas and a children’s storybook during that week, while still learning some new dance moves.

“We already have labelled bags at our dance studio in Maple,” Daychak continues. “Our students can drop the bag of pyjamas off with an appropriate storybook for a boy or girl as indicated on the label. We’ll then donate the items to both charities we’ve partnered with.”

Daychak says that the pyjama and book drive is in response to those kids who maybe haven’t had a bedtime story read to them by a caring adult in their lives.

“So many of us have vivid memories of putting on our PJs and having our parents read to us as we fall asleep,” says Daychak. “Organizing this pyjama drive is just a small gesture from all of us at Performing Dance Arts to offer less fortunate children a piece of what many of us have experienced growing up.”

Daychak is confident they’ll have a great response from their dance students in supporting this pyjama drive and is excited to be working with both Yellowbrick House and Pathways in helping to bring some joy to children this holiday season.

Performing Dance Arts has been conducting dance lessons in Maple for more than two decades. Children of all ages and skill levels are welcome. Contact Performing Dance Arts today for more information on their dance lessons or December pyjama and book drive.

The Role Of Charity Institutions To Cable Tv Providers

A lot of institutions out there are allowed to donate something for those who were affected. As a result, it will give benefits to them. There are no more options for a person like you to seek medical attention. Instead you need to approach these charity institutions to ask for some help. Don’t expect them to give money to anyone. They rather receive money from all kinds of people, especially food and water. Best of all, they might give you some opportunities as well. A scary event has affected thousands of people around the world, and it’s a big surprise like no other. It means there are lots of people who are homeless and could have died in the serious calamity.

In most countries worldwide, it’s like we are united as one community to help each other out. The proceedings will be given to an institution where charity takes place. It will be a big help for the ones who are affected. These institutions are a big help for all kinds of people, as we unite with one another. This kind of institution is considered to be a non-profit organization for all people. However, it does not stop us from helping them. There are companies like Jollibee and other restaurants who were willing to help and contribute to the community, in case a tragic event has happened.

The same thing goes to the biggest flood event in Australia. In order to have lots of donations, businesses and familiar icons around the world are willing to help the affected. It needs them to donate some of their own property like money, food, clothes and other valuable things. This is where unity has started, especially for business firms like cable TV. Speaking of cable TV, is it possible that they can also help the ones in need? Cable, satellite and digital TV companies were having the same purpose, which is to entertain a lot of customers or subscribers. However, they do have a heart and passion to help the ones who are affected in the tragic event.

There is no such thing that a company might refuse to give something, in order to help the poor and the ones who suffered. It’s where cable TV rules the competition, especially in terms of entertaining the affected citizens. This can also be applied to the ones who are sick, especially in the deadly sickness called cholera. During the most popular outbreak of H1N1 virus, these institutions forced themselves to give good treatment with others. These institutions are beginning to receive a lot of donations or contributions from different business firms.

Some of them are fast food restaurants, 5-star hotels, real estate companies and the like. For cable television providers, they can donate bundle packages to their customers or subscribers. One TV set is good enough for a customer or subscriber, only if it’s available. They are considered to be one of the most entertaining appliances in your area. You can expect that more features and benefits will appear to various subscribers. Not only it gives them pure entertainment, but it also provide excitement and laughter to all of us. It is true that when we give instead of receiving, you might have great feelings for yourself. I’m pretty sure that the ones who are affected will appreciate the things you have done, especially in providing them the best service ever.
