Continuing a Legacy: the People to People Foundation

I have an important request for all of my colleagues, friends, family, brothers and sisters in Christ, agents, publishers, editors, circus performers, poets, artists, dancers, singers, bouncers, lion tamers, trapeze artists, lawyers, scientists and chefs out there.

A legacy is about to begin, a legacy I began 17 years ago — called the People to People Foundation. The prestigious organization founded by our very own Dwight D. Eisenhower to develop peace and relations with other countries all over the world.

I was a student ambassador. And now my lovely daughter is fundraising to become one as well. She is going to be 10 years old in less than a month.

Like me, back when I was 17 years old, she will be going to Australia for two weeks next year to continue that legacy. But we need your help.

We need you to donate, to fund for her trip. Currently, we’re working on getting the deposit squared away — $400. But we’ll need so much more than that, but we’ll start with the initial deposit.

This is the link. Click on it. We’ll love you forever if you do. I’ll be your literary muse archangel of good luck if you do.

Make this dream a reality for my little one. Thank you!

Sincerely,
Pierre Roustan


Granting Favor to a Business: Vertical Media Solutions

Support is a beautiful thing, really. And many businesses really do need that, so this post is specifically about one: Vertical Media Solutions.

For many of my Facebookers out there and Tweeters, you may have already read about this, but I’m just writing about it on my site here to remind many of you of the fact that Vertical Media Solutions is up for a grant award.

We just need you. Yes, you, with the capability to press a few buttons, one in particular that says the word VOTE.

Vertical Media Solutions needs your votes to have a chance at this. I don’t know of any better small business out there benefiting the everyday American entrepreneur, professional, and prospective job candidate.

This is what the economy is made of: effort, quality and “quan.”

(For those who don’t know what a “quan” is, watch the film “Jerry McGuire.” Otherwise, it’s simply a word meaning “power”!)
