Not In My Backyard Project PSA Announcement

25 Jun

From Jacquelyn Aluotto CEO/Founder of RBRW

 

THE NIMBY PROJECT PSA:

The NIMBY Project is an inspiration from the documentary “Not In My Backyard.” The documentary takes viewers into battered women and children shelters across America. Throughout the voyage, you see the reality of these women, teens, and children who seek survival in a country that ignores this epidemic. This is the first time cameras were allowed in the shelters, let alone the underground shelters. Producer and Human Activist Jacquelyn Aluotto produces the documentary not only to expose the truth but to give a 100 percent of the proceeds to save these shelters. The movement is headstrong with Celebrities, Activists, Communities, and Artists across the nation. Famous Actor Luis Guzman is a spokesperson for the “Not In My Backyard” documentary. The NIMBY Project is also features a TV show and movement to make-over shelters. In June, we are shooting the PSA for the documentary. We invite you to become involved in making a difference in the world! Help stop poverty, abuse, and homelessness. Help educate and heal those that suffer in our own backyard.

50 percent of homeless people are women and children fleeing abuse.

23-40 percent of the homeless are veterans.

1.6 million children in America are without a home.

Please join our movement and show that we are making a difference.  Break the cycle of violence and poverty. Educate, build, and inspire through the arts.

The PSA will consist of reading from a script that we will send to you prior to the PSA date. We also will have cue cards ready. The script consists of the following:

–The NIMBY Project, the “Not In My Backyard” Project inspired by the documentary.

–Why people should join this movement? –

People in our own “backyards” are homeless and suffering.

–Statistics: –––>1.6 million children are homeless in America. –––>Every 2 minutes a child becomes homeless in our “backyards.”

–––>50% of the homeless are women and children fleeing abuse.

They are the largest group of the homeless, and growing. –––>23-40% of homeless people are veterans.

Through this TV pilot, the NIMBY documentary, our “NIMBY: Save Shelters!” SmartPhone App, we can help save all these people by supporting the shelters helping them to heal and provide them safe havens to empower victims into survivors, and giving the voiceless a voice. Our Arts, healing, and education programs at shelters can help break this cycle of violence and homelessness. This is not just any show, but a movement we all can become involved in.

Help us save shelters and provide to the victims and the homeless. Help us rebuild humanity. You can be a mentor, a builder, an artist, a teacher. Anyone.

Go to RBRW.org and find out how to join.

World Peace Begins At Home!

World Peace Begins At Home,

THE GREAT GATSBY GALA |Benefiting the United Cerebral Palsy of New York

28 Mar


The Great Gatsby Gala, in aid of the United Cerebral Palsy  of New York (UCP), was an event that consisted of a group of generous people  including a list of celebrities getting together to support a worthy cause  through fun, fine food and gambling. The Dreamland Orchestra contributed to  the evening’s 1920’s inspired theme with a repertoire of songs that had your  toes tapping and shoulders moving. Guests had access to gaming tables and an exquisite buffet dinner provided on location by Fino Ristorante  Italiano.

Celebrity host for the evening Jill Flint, from the hit  television show, “Royal Pains” shared a very personal story as to why she has  recently come on board to support such a worthy cause.   “I  grew up with someone who was affected by cerebral Palsy: my baby sitters son.  She was not only taking care of my brother and me but she was also taking care  of her son as well”

Flint came from a small town where to access resources  for someone who suffered from cerebral palsy was very limited and difficult to  say the least. Watching her babysitter ensure that her son lived a content  life, Flint observed a woman trying to provide some normality to challenges of  simple things that we take for granted including being able to speak or  communicate, do homework and participate in a variety of general activities  just so he wouldn’t feel left out.

While Flint’s association with UCP is  only just a recent development her passion is contagious. Her goal is to have  this cause ‘talked about’ – to create awareness through dialogue. Her belief  is purely that everyone regardless of your challenges in life has the right to live an independent and fulfilled life. UCP as an organization is exactly what this is all about, specifically for those who are living with disabilities  including Cerebral Palsy.

The United Cerebral Palsy of New York City is a  leading nonprofit agency that creates many opportunities for people affected  by Cerebral Palsy. There are countless services available from UCP.   Included is affordable housing  particularly in New York City that provides simple things like elevators and  appropriate shower facilities, Education Programs that work with Pre School children and provide After School Programs, Arts Programs and comprehensive  Adult Day Care Facilities. More information about their services, their team  and the wonderful work that they do can all be found on their website:  www.ucpnyc.org

Flint also shared very briefly about another  organization that she hopes to become more involved with – FINCA  International. Natalie Portman is the spokesperson for this organization that  provides small micro finance loans to impoverished women to start their own  businesses all across the world.

This UCP event was also attended by other  VIP guests such as Javier Gomez, Tim Morehouse, Rachael Kun, Camilla Barungi, Aryn Cole, Josh Folan, Max Rhyser, Sean  Biloski and Lauren LoGiudice.

This event is the beginning of a fantastic  journey for Flint, and she looks forward to working with the organization more  in the future. She is a true ambassador for the cause and a gracious host.  Tune in for exclusive interviews which can be  viewed at www.rbrw.org

Flint’s message for the evening was  this:

“Open your eyes and really  put yourself in someone else’s shoes. There is so much that you take for  granted in your day to day life.  So start there.” ~ Jill  Flint

A word from RBRW Host Supermodel Hall of Fame Founder Linda Morand

13 Mar

The new RealBeautyRealWomen.com is set to launch on Monday March 14,2011

Hope is like a bird that senses the dawn and carefully starts to sing while it is still dark.
–         Anonymous
In celebration of the wonderful new website that is being launched I would like to share some inspirational quotes that have helped me. In starting RBRW Jacquelyn Aluotto has given hope to so many people who have no hope.  She inspires celebrities, victims and everyday people to find each other and help each other.  That is the only way it is going to work in this world.  We all need to forget about race and class and political differences and concentrate on being human beings. With wars and natural disasters abounding we all have to toughen up and stick together.  The tone of my future blogs will be to engender hope, faith and self esteem.
He who has hope has everything.
–         Arabian Proverb
Hope is a state of mind, not of the world. Hope, in this deep and powerful sense, is not the same as joy that things are going well, or willingness to invest in enterprises that are obviously heading for success, but rather an ability to work for something because it is good.
–         Vaclav Havel
For hope is but the dream of those that wake.
–         Matthew Prior
Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul.
–        Emily Dickenson
If you do not hope, you will not find what is beyond your hopes.
–         St. Clement of Alexandra
He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.  Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.  They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
– Isaiah 40:29-31
Man is a creature of hope and invention, both of which belie the idea that things cannot be changed
– Tom Clancy
Linda Morand

Happy International Women’s Day from Solo Dove Public Relations

8 Mar

Happy International Women’s Day everyone. Can you believe it is the 100th year celebration of the day? Just amazing.

As a woman I feel that it is important that we continue to celebrate women and as women we need to encourage one another. From working with client Jacquelyn Aluotto and RealBeautyRealWomen.com I have come to see that the issues facing women today are similar to the issues they were facing 10, 20, 30 years ago. How can this be? We need to make additional improvements. There are still many “first” that women can accomplish.

I am encouraged when I see women supporting one another. I am encouraged when I see men young and old making an effort to uplift women.

I hope that you take this day to support and celebrate all women. Since this is an international celebration take the time out to meet someone who doesn’t necessarily look like you or is from the same place. Learn something new, the world is bigger than what you see on your street.
