Every Day 5,760 More Children Become Orphans

The statistics are startling: it’s estimated that there are 143 million orphans worldwide. Even though many children are adopted, many more grow up as orphans and age out of the system by age sixteen – with no family to belong to and no place to call home.

In a perfect world, there would be no orphans and no need for adoptions. Families would stay intact, and children would be raised by loving parents and/or grandparents, but this is not the reality for all too many orphans.

Won’t you join with me in caring for the urgent needs of poverty-stricken orphans throughout the United States? Together we can make a difference for precious children who are alone in the world.

Invest in a better world for orphaned children …

We are seeking generous partners to provide resources that will give these children a future filled with hope. In addition to financial donations, please consider other ways that you can help. Orphanages can use a variety of material resources – cars, property, computers, medical supplies, clothing, furniture, bedding, toys, etc. Your contribution will bless disadvantaged orphans as well as impact future generations.

Kids’ Meals is Stomping Out Hunger in Houston

“Texas ranks 3rd in the nation for food insecurity, meaning one in five adults and one in four children in our state are hungry,” says Texas Department of Agriculture Commissioner Todd Staples. “That is simply unacceptable.”

kidsmealshouston

A plummeting economy and spiraling unemployment have left hundreds of Houston families struggling with the bare essentials. Kids’ Meals is stepping into the gap, delivering nutritious meals to kids in an attempt to stomp out hunger in Houston.

Kids’ Meals is a 501(c)3 non-profit, community based Meals on Wheels program for pre-school aged children that live in poverty. The program was first launched in Houston in 1984.

Today Kids’ Meals provides lunches to over 1,200 pre-school aged children living in poverty who otherwise might never see a nutritious meal. The program runs Monday through Friday all year long, helping to close the gap between families’ income and the needs of their growing kids. But it’s not enough.

“The need for Kids’ Meals is ever-growing due to the increase of food and gas prices as well as the slowing economy,” says Kids’ Meals spokesperson Bonnie Leach. “Layoffs and downsizing have more families finding themselves in need of food. We hope to be the first city to have no hungry children.”

“Kids’ Meals has hundreds of children on their waiting list ready to be fed,” adds Leach. “[We] need your support through donations, volunteer time and spreading the word.”

For less than $1.50 a day a nutritious lunch will be delivered to a hungry child, free of charge to each family.

“”Kids’ Meals needs your support through donations, volunteering your time and spreading the word by helping us fulfill our mission of ending hunger among Houston area children,” states Leach.

Npower’s Generosity Helps Kids At Cedars School Get Around

npower’s donation of £17,000 towards a brand new mini bus has meant that students at Cedars School Sports College in Low Fell can, once again, take part in extra-curricular activities including trips to the swimming baths, leisure centre, parks and theatres.

The school caters for the needs of children with physical and speech and language disorders and when one of their mini-buses failed its MOT, fund-raising for a new Variety Club bus was moved to the top of the list of priorities. The challenge was to raise over £15,500 within six months. It was a chance conversation with npower’s Wes Craig, the uncle of Michael Craig, one of the senior students at The Cedars that raised the possibility of some help.

Wes referred the request to the npower charities board and £17,000 was donated to the school. Jane Fraser, head teacher at The Cedars, is delighted, saying:”npower’s response truly was the answer to a prayer! We’ve already used the new bus for a wide variety of trips and visits. It provides the children with an opportunity to broaden their education in sporting and cultural activities.

“We have put the remaining £1,500 to kick off the fund-raising to replace the second old mini-bus, as that, too, is on its last tyres.”

Wes was amongst a group of npower staff invited to join in the celebration of receiving the new bus. He found the experience a humbling one, explaining: “It was good to be able to do something positive for the Cedars in return for all the help and support they have given Michael and many other children, over the years.”

Tracesmart Sponsors Adoption Agency

In line with Tracesmart’s corporate social responsibility charter, the company has aligned itself with leading adoption agency and charity, AAA-Norcap. The synergy that exists between the two organisations made the charity an obvious recipient for Tracesmart’s sponsorship and support. AAA-Norcap is a specialist adoption support agency, offering those involved in adoption cases tracing assistance to find relatives and an intermediary service; it also holds the longest established UK adoption contact register.

The charity, based in Oxfordshire, was established more than 25 years ago to provide a nationwide people search service, supporting and guiding adults whose lives have been touched by adoption. Tracesmart supplies people and address search facilities – which are driven by the electoral roll and various other datasets – but is not registered to provide an intermediary service in adoption cases. However the company is occasionally approached by individuals with the need for an adoption related search, and when such tracing enquiries occur they are referred to AAA-Norcap.

Locating people lost through adoption is not a simple clear-cut procedure; it needs to be approached very carefully as the outcome of the search could have far-reaching consequences for both the searcher and the searched; good reason for Tracesmart to call on the experience of AAA-Norcap when such an enquiry arises. As part of the sponsorship program, Tracesmart will feature AAA-Norcap case studies on its website in the ‘Success Stories’ section, which is the home of a campaign to highlight the effectiveness of the Tracesmart online people search facility. Stories provided by the charity can be remarkable and very moving.

Owen Roberts, Tracesmart’s Communications Manager, commented, “We are very pleased and proud to be able to sponsor AAA-Norcap, who provide an invaluable service to people affected by adoption. The ongoing sponsorship will further strengthen the relationship between our two organisations, and has provided the added benefit of AAA-Norcap being able to assist a few of Tracesmart’s customers too. Both organisations really do complement each other.”

  • Owen Roberts has worked in the creative, advertising and communications industries for over 25 years and is the voice of Tracesmart. Heading up the communications team, he raises the public awareness of the company through various media driven PR campaigns.
  • Tracesmart Ltd. – Since the launch of its website in 2004, Tracesmart Limited has established itself as one of the UK’s leading providers of online people tracing tools. The online tracing facility (www.tracesmart.co.uk) combines state of the art search technology with an extensive collection of consumer data, offering one of the most powerful and successful systems to trace people in the country.

Totalprestige Club, the networking site for c-level executives, introduces H.S.H. Princess Karina Bagration-Moukhransky, Princess Elfi Odo dua of Benin, Mr Paolo Zampolli, Mr Lorenzo Quinn and Mr Ransel Newcombe Potter as its new Honorary Presidents, and ratify its support to praiseworthy charities

Over the years, Totalprestige Club has always followed the usual practices of traditional elite clubs. In keeping with this policy, it has announced today that several Honorary Presidents were recently appointed. It has also reported that as of February 1, 2009, annual contributions made by members, as well as part of the revenues f r o m its Gala Evenings, will support the Totalprestige Foundation and specific charities selected by the Honorary Presidents.

Annual contributions required f r o m members range between USD $100 (minimum) and USD $10,000 (maximum). When registering, all members may determine how much they will contribute: USD $100, $300, $500, $1,000, $5,000 or $10,000. These contributions are subsequently delivered to the Totalprestige Foundation.

Our Foundation,” Founder, Rose Marie Perez explains, “does not have its own humanitarian program, so its mission is to help other charity organizations as much as possible. However, it has become increasingly difficult to decide which organizations to support, as there are a great many of them and they are all doing a fine job. For this reason, we asked our Honorary Presidents what their favorite charities are, and these are the ones we will help f r o m now on.”

These are the selected charities:
The project River of Life as suggested by Princess Elfi Odo-Dua of Benin, Germany.
The IREO Foundation – United Nations, as proposed by Mr Paolo Zampolli, New York.
Fundació Juvanteny chosen by Mr Lorenzo Quinn, Barcelona -Spain.
The Robin Hood Foundation, nominated by Mr Ransel Newcombe Potter, New York.
The Charity chosen by H.S.H. Princess Karina Bagration-Moukhransky, Ukraine, will be announced soon.

Totalprestige is a private and closed circle of world executives at senior level, personalities and celebrities. In September, 2008, Totalprestige Inc launched an online networking site TotalprestigeCommunity.com defined as “The Facebook for the Filthy Rich,” in Wired Magazine and described as “The Network for High Society,” in The NY Post and in Il Corriere della Sera Rose Marie added, “We at Totalprestige we feel there’s nothing better for business than a face-to-face meeting and a strong handshake. However, this is the Internet age and our online networking site is very useful for first contacts and breaking the ice”

As to the Gala Evenings , virtually all of these will be on behalf of the Totalprestige Foundation, including live auctions, and part of the proceeds will be donated to the aforementioned organizations.

Coming Galas announced by Totalprestige: The Red Diamond Dinner Ball, to be held in New York City on Thursday, April 23, and The Cinema Beach Gala -in partnership with Les Etoiles-, which will take place in Cannes on Saturday, May 23, during the Film Festival.

We asked Rose Marie to kindly explain what the Gala Evenings Season is all about:

“Many million-dollar contracts have just started to be negotiated in an informal, relaxed setting by people who had a glass of champagne or fine whiskey in their hands. This is exactly what we want to promote: more opportunities for our people to do more business while they enjoy high-end entertainment. This is our job at Totalprestige, and the Gala Evenings Season it’s an opportunity for our members, clients, friends and partners to engage in professional and social relations, as well as a virtual key to open doors in new countries and markets.”
