In the history of ABC4All development are included 2 ABC4All web pages which are entitled, "Words Never Heard Before" http://abc4all.net/wnhb.htm and "More Words Never Heard Before" http://abc4all.net/mwnhb.htm. Both of these web pages might be considered now, in retrospect, also to offer some clues.
When ABC4All Mentor, Arlan Berglas, Tarzana, California, USA
http://profiles.tigweb.org/arlan kindly introduced/referred ABC4All to the Jazz For Peace Foundation in New York City, New York: http://www.jazzforpeace.org, it could not have been known at that point in time as to what dynamic and dramatic developments this referral would lead for ABC4All's work to bring Global Humanitarian Relief (GHR) to the world.
http://abc4all.net/localabc4all.html, it was a natural course of events that, after learning about what was needed, to have ABC4All Mentors within Kenya alerted to the concert which took place at the National Museum of Kenya in Nairobi, on 02/19/2011.
A recent CBS-TV 60 Minutes program had featured "The Big Migration" and the critical need of the Conservancy for support. Jazz For Peace has stated, after the concert took place, that there likely will be additional such fundraising concerts in support of the Conservancy, given the vital importance of the organization's work.
Among the developments that took place supporting the concert beyond communication with ABC4All Mentors, ABC4All-generated press releases, etc., the Conservancy Manager, Paul Kilelu, himself, became an ABC4All Mentor! http://profiles.tigweb.org/EOCT
The results of this concert are summarized with a photo gallery:
The above developments that took place during the period leading to the actual Kenya concert illustrated just what might be possible were ABC4All to explore the possibility of partnership with the Jazz For Peace Foundation: www.jazzforpeace.org.
Therefore, 2 events followed. First, ABC4All applied for its own grant with the Jazz For Peace Foundation. Secondly, a proposal for a partnership between ABC4All and Jazz For Peace Foundation (JFP) was submitted with quick approval by JFP. In this way, in a record short time, there has evolved a dynamic partnership between ABC4All and JFP.
Given the pending premiere FUNdraising concert on behalf of ABC4All that had been proposed to take place in Los Angeles on April 27, 2011, an overture to consider working together on this partnership/project with JFP was made to a local "Kernel of Hope," Amigos Sin Barreras/Friends Without Barriers, a nonprofit organization in Redondo Beach, California USA: http://amigosonline.org. Founder Alma Martinez quickly agreed to have her entity unite with ABC4All to enter jointly into a partnership with JFP.
Recently Amigos had been awarded recognition on a national basis via the Dodgers Baseball Team in Los Angeles. Additionally Amigos earned the Jefferson Award via Los Angeles Television Station ABC7-TV. Both of these awards were added to the long list of awards Amigos has earned in its 2-decade history of working with HIV/AIDS clients in the SouthBay area of Los Angeles.
All of the above developments set the stage for concretizing the Amigos-ABC4All partnership with JFP.
On April 27, 2011, A Better Community For All (ABC4All) of Manhattan Beach, California USA formally launched the FOREVER Campaign for Global Humanitarian Relief (FCGHR) united with Amigos Sin Barreras/Friends Without Barriers, a nonprofit organization in Redondo Beach, California USA dealing with HIV/AIDS clients, both entities together in partnership with The Jazz For Peace Foundation, New York, New York USA: http://jfp/abc4all.net
What has been facilitated among the various parties who are working together to support the ability of both ABC4All and JFP to work together to bring Global Humanitarian Relief (GHR) to the world is unparalleled and extraordinarily dynamic to say the least. We at ABC4All are eternally grateful for such total cooperation:
Alma Martinez and the Amigos Board leave no stone unturned to do what is needed. JFP Team could not be more cooperative: John De Angelis – Grant Administrator / Debra R. Cerritelli – Senior Event Coordinator / Dwayne Richards – Programming Assistant / Rick DellaRatta – Founder: The Jazz for Peace Foundation www.jazzforpeace.org
