CLEARLINK Employees Walk From Las Vegas to Salt Lake City, Raising Over $40,000 to Bring Clean Water to Rwanda


Salt Lake City, Utah (PRWEB) October 01, 2014

Over 1,200 CLEARLINK employees united around one cause this summer: to raise money for a sustainable clean water system in Rwanda. Part of how these funds are raised is through a walk touching the two driest states — Nevada and Utah.

The CLEARLINK Walk4Water kicked-off Saturday, September 27 in Red Rock Canyon, outside Las Vegas, NV. Over 300 employees will take part in the walk, in 15 mile rotations, as they make their way to CLEARLINK headquarters in Salt Lake City, arriving Friday, October 10.

“There is no person untouched by water, whether you live in Utah and think about conservation, or you live in Rwanda and unclean water jeopardizes the lives of your family,” Phil Hansen, CLEARLINK CEO, said. “Water is an equalizer across all peoples and nations. The Walk4Water gives our employees a way to help their global neighbors and bring lasting change. CLEARLINKers are building camaraderie among their teams while seeing the measurable impact of their efforts to improving lives. Our employees’ commitment to help those in Rwanda is a true expression of CLEARLINK culture and people.”

To raise money, CLEARLINK employees reached out to friends and family, held BBQ fundraisers, sports tournaments, and bake sales — some even dedicated the money they’d be getting for their birthdays to the cause. Over 20 teams will walk the distance between Las Vegas and Salt Lake. They will be walking through areas such as Cedar Canyon, Brian Head, Parowan, Filmore, Delta, Yuba Lake, Nephi Canyon and Rush Valley.

Each CLEARLINKer has a story to tell about why they’re participating and the impact it has had on them personally.

Paige Sjoblom, a digital marketer, noted, “With all the luxuries our culture maintains, it’s our responsibility to help the rest of the world gain access to life’s most basic needs. I loved teaming up with my co-workers to work towards a common goal knowing that we were going to make a difference in a stranger’s life.”

Vanessa Rios, a sales trainer, shared that, “I am excited to be working for a company that is making a difference in the world. I’m originally from Mexico and I know in parts of my country people face this problem every day. I started to share Walk4Water with my friends and family and I was overwhelmed in the amount of support from my friends and family in the States and in Mexico.”

Paul McHardy, a marketing manager, said, “The luxury of clean, filtered, cold water is one that I don’t think anyone should take for granted. CLEARLINK’s Walk4Water campaign just spoke to me, right at a time when I was looking for some way to give back, to show gratitude for all that I have. It’s been so easy, and it will make a gigantic impact.”

In Africa alone, people spend 40 billion hours every year walking for water, and often that water is contaminated. This statistic, along with the World Health Organization’s (WHO) report that over 3.6% of the global disease burden can be prevented simply by improving water supply, sanitation and hygiene, is what drove CLEARLINK to act. In over 100 days, CLEARLINK raised more than $ 40,000. This money will be directed to Charity:Water, an international organization with the mission of mission bringing clean and safe drinking water to every person in the world.

The community and media are invited to join the final 10 mile walk from SaltAir to CLEARLINK headquarters at 5202 W. Douglas Corrigan Way in Salt Lake City on Friday, October 10. The shuttle to SaltAir leaves CLEARLINK at 9:00 a.m., and a “Clean Water Celebration” will take place at CLEARLINK as the walkers complete the final lap around the company pond. The celebration is expected to begin around 12:30 p.m.

#GivingTuesday Shines a Light on Philanthropy, Service and American Generosity and Creates Opening Day for the Giving Season


New York, NY (PRWEB) November 28, 2012

An unprecedented partnership of more than 2,500 charities, volunteer organizations, corporations, community centers and foundations made history yesterday with the inaugural #GivingTuesday, marked by activities and campaigns in all 50 U.S. states. The #GivingTuesday movement created a new day on the calendar to mark the opening of the Giving Season, with volunteer projects, online fundraisers, and collections for the needy with many focusing on Superstorm Sandy victims. The movement’s goals of inviting more people to think about giving and encouraging generosity of time and resources were embraced by grassroots organizers, corporate and retail leaders and an emerging cadre of entrepreneurial philanthropists. The #GivingTuesday message was also echoed in statements from Mayors of Chicago, Philadelphia, Detroit and New York, philanthropy leaders including Bill Gates, and the White House. Early indicators point to the promise and potential of the movement. Blackbaud (http://www.blackbaud.com), a global provider of software and services to nonprofits and a founding partner of #GivingTuesday, processed $ 10 million in online donations on inaugural #GivingTuesday – a 53% increase when compared to the Tuesday after Thanksgiving the previous year.

Organizers hope this outpouring of giving and awareness will catalyze a sustained period of robust and creative giving during the holiday season.

An “Opening Day” for Giving

Coming on the heels of the country’s biggest shopping days, Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday was designed to help change the national dialogue about giving and mobilize an “opening day” for charitable giving and volunteer support for causes large and small. Born from conversations at New York City’s 92nd Street Y, and supported by a Team of Influencers including some of the nation’s leading foundation executives, philanthropy experts, public relations professionals and social media leaders, #GivingTuesday asked people to support their favorite charities and do something special to give back on November 27. Next year, #GivingTuesday will fall on December 3, 2013.

Social Media Helps Power a Movement about Generosity

The #GivingTuesday conversation reached millions of people on November 27 through a coordinated social media effort that included a Social Media Ambassadors program; special blog series; innovative platforms designed to help participants share information, tools and best practices; and a sustained Twitter and Facebook conversation. The social media conversation included thousands of posts and photos showcasing the variety of ways that people donated or gave back on November 27 and the plans they have to support causes throughout the holiday season.

The robust conversation resulted in #GivingTuesday becoming a trending topic on Twitter in the United States for much of the day on November 27 and intermittently trending as a global topic, as well. In addition, media outlets reaching all 50 U.S. states covered both local and national initiatives, fueling discussions about how organizations can make giving more accessible and relevant for future generations and emerging leaders.

Increased Support Points to a Promising Start to the “Giving Season”

In addition to the nationwide surge in conversations about giving, #GivingTuesday partners reported strong response to calls for increased support, volunteer efforts and matching grants. Many organizations have already started reporting the impact of their efforts on #GivingTuesday to their supporters and donors, encouraging them to maintain this momentum throughout the holiday season. From supplies to volunteer hours to pints of blood donated, or even miles walked or jogged for charity, the #GivingTuesday community asked people to help “Get out the Give” in thousands of ways that will have lasting impact.

###

About #GivingTuesday

#GivingTuesday is a movement to celebrate giving, invite more people to think about meaningful ways to give their time and talents, and provide incentives to give. This first-of-its-kind effort, starting with the November 27, 2012 kick-off day for the giving season, harnesses the collective power of a unique blend of partners—charities, families, businesses and individuals—to transform how people think about, talk about and participate in the giving season.

#GivingTuesday calls on inspiring, entrepreneurial people to take collaborative action to improve their local communities, to give back in better, smarter ways to the charities and causes they celebrate and to help create a better world. #GivingTuesday is harnessing the power of social media to create a national moment around the holidays that is dedicated to giving, similar to the way Black Friday and Cyber Monday have become days synonymous with holiday shopping.

A team of recognized experts and influencers, initially convened by leaders of 92nd Street Y and supported by a core group of founding partners, are spearheading this effort. Founding partners include the United Nations Foundation, Case Foundation, DonorsChoose.org, Mashable, Blackbaud, charity: water, GlobalGiving, Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA), Kiva, Darden Restaurant Group, Groupon, Unilever and VentureThree Capital. Leaders in philanthropy, social media, innovative giving, grassroots organizing, marketing and communications are providing counsel and resources to help build this movement.

FOX 5 News Story – Dr. Ben Talei a Beverly Hills Facial Plastic Surgeon organizes the Drive Against Domestic Violence & Botox-for-a-Cause as he Drives across the country


Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) September 22, 2014

The Drive Against Domestic Violence (http://BeverlyHillsCenter.com) is a cross-country marathon drive organized by Ben Talei, MD – a Beverly Hills Facial Plastic Surgeon and Nathan Talei, Esq.

The two brothers have planned to drive across the country during Domestic Violence Awareness Month this October in order to raise funds and awareness for the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NCADV – http://ncadv.org/) and the American Academy of Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery’s Face to Face Domestic Violence Program (http://www.aafprs.org/patient/humanitarian/pa_humprog.html). They will be driving in a Mini Cooper wrapped in logos for the charity to help draw attention to the marathon fundraising. The drive will proceed from New York City to Miami to Los Angeles with many organized stops and events along the way.

FOX 5 New York News Correspondent Arthur Chi’en visited Dr. Talei’s office at the Beverly Hills Center for Plastic and Laser Surgery this past week in order to learn more about the interesting methods used for this unique fundraiser ( http://www.myfoxny.com/clip/10585983/botox-for-a-cause#)

Although raising funds is a large part of the campaign, Dr. Talei believes that raising awareness for these two incredible organizations is even more important. This entire month, Dr. Talei has donated Botox for charity, as he offered patients complementary Botox treatments in exchange for a donation to the cause. This in turn has created a greater recognition for the foundation. He has even offered free cosmetic and reconstructive procedures to battered women in order to help lift their spirits. Dr. Talei is a Facial Cosmetic and Reconstructive Surgeon who has become quite passionate about the cause as a result of treating domestic abuse victims over the years.

One of the first events will be on September 24th at the Ultra-chic “Beautique Restaurant” in Manhattan. There promises to be plenty of socializing, fundraising, and even a raffle for Juvederm and Botox treatments. The Drive will then start on September 29th with the first stop organized at the famous Hill Country Barbeque in the heart of Washington DC. There will be dozens of other stops and events before arriving in Los Angeles where the arrival party will be hosted by the W Hotel in Hollywood as they show their support for the cause.

To donate or view events, supporters can visit http://BeverlyHillsCenter.com and click on the foundation’s Mini Cooper. There you will find a map of the brothers’ drive and a link for donations. This is an ongoing effort so more events will assuredly pop up along the way, with a few involving exotic car clubs as well showing their support.

Although Domestic Violence has received a significant amount of attention recently in the media and in the NFL, this is not a novel problem. Domestic violence is a devastating issue that is all too prevalent in this country and around the world. Everyone has been affected by it in one way or another. The actions of Ray Rice, Adrian Peterson, Jonathan Dwyer, Greg Hardy, Ray McDonald, and even Floyd Mayweather have for too long been overlooked. Furthermore, the response of Ray Rice’s wife, Janay Palmer, defending her husband’s actions (Twitter hashtag #WhyIStayed) is all too common. Dr. Talei hopes to increase conscious awareness of this problem and promote the reversal of the reflexes and responses leading to domestic violence in order to eradicate this problem in households around the country. Moreover the charity hopes to show domestic abuse victims that organizations such as these exist and all they need to do is reach out. They are not alone in this and something can always be done to improve their situation.







Chargers QB Philip Rivers Inspired by U-T San Diego Column to Help Lead Passing It On Campaign


San Diego, CA (PRWEB) September 16, 2014

San Diego, CA. (September 16, 2014) When U-T San Diego sports columnist Kevin Acee crafted his April 28 column “Helping Kids, Families with Some Passes,” he hoped that the story about two-year-old Stephen Russell – who loves Cheetos, is insatiably curious, and will almost certainly undergo a third gruelling heart surgery before the age of five — would inspire readers to dig deep and donate to the Ronald McDonald House Charities of San Diego, which has been a haven for Stephen’s family. One of those readers agreed to join Acee in the campaign. That was San Diego Chargers’ quarterback Philip Rivers, who along with Acee is leading the “Passing It On” campaign.

The Passing It On campaign challenges Chargers fans to support San Diego’s Ronald McDonald House Charities by pledging anywhere from 10 cents to $ 1 or more for every passing yard that Rivers completes this season. Rivers and Acee have each pledged $ 1 per yard, respectively, and the Walter J. and Betty C. Zable Foundation has generously agreed to match funds raised up to $ 50,000.

“San Diego’s Ronald McDonald House relies on support from the community to continue to provide a ‘home away from home’ for families like the Russells, who need a place to regroup, recharge and find some normalcy in an otherwise chaotic time,” said Chuck Day, president and CEO of Ronald McDonald House Charities of San Diego, which was founded in 1980. “We are so grateful for the support from our community, including Kevin Acee and Philip Rivers for making `Passing It On’ possible and, of course, for the generous matching gift from the Walter J. and Betty C. Zable Foundation. Because of this outstanding leadership and support, we can continue to provide hope and healing for the families we serve.”

“As a parent, I know how scary having a sick child can be — but that pales in comparison to what Stephen’s family has endured day after day,” said Kevin Acee, who has since published a follow-up column ‘Helping Philip Rivers Pass It On.’ “I have been so moved by the incredible people at the Ronald McDonald House Charities of San Diego, and it’s a privilege to help spread awareness and raise funds. And as for Philip Rivers, his integrity and leadership are an inspiration, and he was completely on board from the first moment we spoke about this worthy cause.”

“Ronald McDonald House Charities of San Diego is a great community partner of the U-T and we couldn’t be more proud of this cause. We are very pleased with Kevin Acee and Philip Rivers for supporting this initiative and creating even greater awareness for the community to get involved. We look forward to tracking the total yards and amount of donations raised throughout the season,” said Mike Hodges, U-T San Diego President and COO.

Chargers fans and all other San Diegans can be part of The Passing It On campaign by visiting http://www.passingitonsd.com. The website also includes a special video featuring interviews with Philip Rivers, Kevin Acee, and members of the Russell family including Stephen.

For all other information including media inquiries, please contact Stephanie Brown, Senior Director, Marketing and Public Relations of U-T San Diego at 619-823-9794 or stephanie.brown@utsandiego.com or Price Adams of Nuffer, Smith & Tucker at 619-296-0605 or pa@nstpr.com.

About Ronald McDonald House Charities of San Diego

Founded in 1980, Ronald McDonald House Charities of San Diego provides a “home away from home” to families with children being treated for serious, often life-threatening conditions at local hospitals. San Diego’s Ronald McDonald House was specifically designed to meet the needs of families – including 47 overnight bedrooms and a Family Care Center meeting daytime needs with a kitchen serving warm meals, showers, laundry facilities, nap rooms and a children’s play area. With a sense of normalcy restored, the nearly 15,000 family members the Ronald McDonald House serves each year can focus their energy on helping their hospitalized child heal. Charity Navigator has given the organization the highest rating available – four stars – based on the charity’s financial health, accountability and transparency.

(PRWEB) September 11, 2014

More than 850 people participated in L’Oréal USA’s seventh annual “Fore the Children” charity event to benefit Children’s Specialized Hospital Foundation. As part of L’Oréal USA’s ongoing efforts to give back to its communities and consumers, this year’s event contributes $ 625,000 bringing the total amount raised by L’Oréal USA since 2008 to $ 3.2 million.

The funds raised at this year’s golf outing will support the expansion of the PSE&G Children’s Specialized Hospital in New Brunswick, new outpatient services in Warren Township and expansion of existing outpatient services in Egg Harbor Township. Additionally, L’Oréal USA has been instrumental in providing funds for creation of a robust and sustainable Research Center at Children’s Specialized Hospital.

The 60-bed pediatric inpatient rehabilitation hospital in New Brunswick serves children affected by brain injury, spinal cord injury, premature birth and life-changing illnesses. The expansion, that began in fall of 2013, created 8 new beds to allow patients to receive intensive physical, occupational, speech and psychological therapies. With L’Oréal’s support, the hospital hopes to serve even more children in need of in and outpatient rehabilitative care.    

“It has been an extreme honor to call L’Oréal USA one of our premiere corporate sponsors,” said Philip Salerno, III, president and chief development officer, Children’s Specialized Hospital Foundation. “The children treated at Children’s Specialized Hospital have not only benefited from L’Oréal’s tremendous success in fundraising, but also the countless hours of volunteer service at our locations and hospital fundraising events.”

“Contributing to the welfare of local communities is at the heart of L’Oréal’s culture and values,” says Morris Lenczicki, treasurer for the Foundation’s board of trustees and Vice President of Operations America at L’Oréal USA, who recently had the distinct honor of being appointed to the New Jersey Governor’s Advocatory Council on Volunteerism and Community Service and was nominated as one of NJBiz magazine’s Healthcare Hero Volunteer of the Year, “We hope the contributions of today inspire employees and New Jersey residents alike to create more tangible impact in neighborhoods where they live and work.”

The event was co-chaired by Lenczicki and Brian Wassall, Assistant Vice President of Purchasing, Operations Americas at L’Oréal USA, and supported by 8 additional committee members, all L’Oréal USA Operations Americas employees.

“Our journey together with Children’s Specialized Hospital has been amazing. It is truly a partnership that has flourished, without effort, based on our common values and passion to give back to others that is engrained in both our organization’s DNA,” said Wassall. “Our charity event’s success is beyond what the event committee ever dreamed could be achieved. We are very proud of our accomplishment, and even more proud of how it will benefit so many children and their families!”

The event’s special guest was hospital trustee Michael Harrison, his wife Amanda and their two children Reid and Kendyl. Over 850 attendees at this year’s Fore the Children Golf Outing had the chance to hear Michael express his sincere gratitude to all who have supported the work being done at Children’s Specialized Hospital. Michael’s youngest child, Reid, was delayed in his development and after serving on the hospital’s foundation’s board of trustees for nearly 30 years, he knew exactly where to turn to ensure his son can meet all of his milestones and reach his fullest potential. After several weeks of physical therapy, Reid is now catching up with his peers and continues with speech therapy to develop his language skills.

“As a parent you want the best for your child. I knew the best place to go was not Philadelphia or New York, but right here in New Jersey,” said Michael Harrison. “His improvement was dramatic over this year. Reid finally reached age appropriate targets and was discharged except for speech therapy which he continues to receive. What this meant to us was that Reid would get to the starting line in life along with all the other children- you can’t ask for anything more. We are grateful to the therapists and doctors at Children’s Specialized for their dedication to our child.”

Many suppliers, donors, and event sponsors supported the event. The top sponsor list includes: Walker International, Unette Corporation and Topline.

Benevolence Of Solar Lighting

Conservation of energy is the word doing the rounds in twenty first century. Global warming is wreaking havoc all over the world and greening of the planet is gaining importance everyday. There are several ways in which energy can be conserved and stored for use of future generations. Instead of using non renewable sources of energy, use should be made of renewable source of energy. Coal, gas, minerals are fast becoming depleted so their use should be limited at least to a considerable extent if not stopped. The best source of renewable energy is the sun from which solar lighting can be put to use. Solar lighting is easily generated from the sun rays and through applying certain techniques. It is by far the best means to conserve energy and save electricity consumption.

The easiest way of utilizing the benevolence of solar lighting is to illuminate the street lights, lights at home and other purposes with the help of using solar energy. Solar lighting helps cut on electricity bills as little cost is involved in making the photovoltaic or solar cells which can be charged with the energy and rays coming from the sun. The light emitted from solar lights may not be powerful but they can help in illuminating the streets and homes. It is advantageous in two ways to reap the benefits of solar lighting one can save electricity consumption by cutting down the use of electricity and also conserve the environment by polluting it less.

Benefits of solar lighting are too many to pen down. Apart from curtailing use of electricity, they are environment friendly with no carbon emission, no use of fuel, easy to install, and cheap. Solar lights are popular everywhere and can be purchased online by placing an order over the phone or simply bought from a local home appliances store. Solar lighting is preferred for its no heat emission and its neutral effects on touching. It is safe to install in playgrounds for children hence.

Solar lighting is benevolent in a genuine way as there is minimal or no maintenance cost, no need to worry for power as it does not need electricity support. Solar lights have sensors fitted into them so there is no need to worry about their system of operation. They are automatically controlled and are used as power sources for security lights, portable spotlights, indoor lights, handheld lanterns, flashlights and even walk away lights. Solar lamps are made of three things namely a rechargeable battery, a photovoltaic solar panel or cell and an LED or light emitting diode lamp. Solar lights are increasingly being used in street lamps to curtail the governments consumption of electricity.

Solar lights can be purchased online from a number of websites and variety of models to choose from and suit individual needs. Orders can also be placed online and the product will be delivered at the doorstep with a warranty period. So solar lighting is the viable option of saving the planet and making it greener by reducing costs on energy consumption and relying on renewable sources of energy of which solar lighting is the plausible option.

Reynold Powers has been in the solar industry for over 15 years. For more information visit his site at solar lighting.
