The World Music And Food Festival, Atlanta 2010

GIVE A HAND FOUNDATION INC has arranged to host the largest World Music and Food Festival ever produced in the South! The FREE Festival will run from October 22-24, 2010 at Piedmont Park in downtown Atlanta, Georgia.

“Good music is a language understood all over the world,” says Edi Okri, president of Give a Hand Foundation. “With this festival, our aim is to bring together diverse cultures and tastes for a fun, rich experience!”

The event will feature more than 100 local, national and international live artists, cultural dancers and comedians for all three days — it will be a time of celebration and cultural extravaganza. The Festival, which will not charge an admission fee to the public, will feature three performing stages. There will also be about 3,000 vendor displays, featuring products and services from around the world!

“The Office of the Mayor, as well as the Department of Parks & Recreation, has approved our use of Piedmont Park for the entire weekend,” says Okri. “The event is completely free, and we’re generating good publicity right now, so we’re preparing to receive a large crowd. We, however, still have some vendor spaces available.”

Jesse Willms Launches Site To Document His Transition From Internet Entrepreneur To Philanthropist

This summer, Internet entrepreneur Jesse Willms made an important decision – he was going to focus less of his time and energy on making money, and more on giving back to the community.

Since then, he has partnered with a wide variety of charities to fight poverty and make the world a better place. Now, he’s decided to create a website dedicated to his philanthropic efforts as an educational tool for others who want to give, but are not sure how to go about it.

The site will be found at JesseWillmsPhilanthropy.com.

“The site will be a way for people to find out who I’m giving to and why,” Willms said. “It will also have dedicated links where people can make their own donations directly. The point of this site is to encourage people to donate to these very worthy organizations, or to be inspired to donate to their own favorite charities.”

Willms has long been known as a legend in the Internet marketing community, who managed to found several Internet marketing companies by the time he was 22 years old. Earlier this summer he was inspired by the work of Bill Gates and Warren Buffett to start donating money to charity.

His current support efforts have been focused on groups that help women, children, single parents and disaster relief efforts. His most dramatic gesture so far was to sponsor 100 children through the World Vision children’s charity, and then to sponsor an additional child every day since.
