You are Invited to Leamouth Peninsula: An Open House of Unity Arts Festival 2018: September 22-23: There is No Art Unless It Seeks to Reach and Inspire Communities Becoming Better Connected Humanity

 

 

 

|| August 19: 2018 || ά. On September 22 and 23 Leamouth Peninsula’s leading cultural destinations will open their doors for Unity Arts Festival, a celebration of creativity in one of east London’s most exciting new neighbourhoods. London City Island, Goodluck Hope and Trinity Buoy Wharf will unite, for the very first time, to showcase some of the most innovative exhibitions, installations and workshops seen in the capital. Forming part of Open House London, Unity Arts Festival invites guests of all ages to meet the artists, designers, makers and performers, who are transforming the island and to experience both the area’s cultural heritage pioneered at Trinity Buoy Wharf and the evolving creative landscapes of London City Island and Goodluck Hope.

Home to resident creatives and local artists, London City Island’s gallery spaces, studios and workshops will be alive with activity for the duration of the festival. Atropelos, a new exhibition at the island’s Arebyte Gallery by Mr Daniel Rourke and Ms Luiza Prado, combines Brazilian graffiti culture with web-based visuals to form a modern commentary on the abolition of societal borders. Guests will have the opportunity to interact with the evolving screens as artists upload their creations. Virtual reality and three-D printing will be used in The New Jerusalem by <r Doron Altaratz at Arebyte Gallery, aiming to build a conceptual bridge between London City Island and Jerusalem.  Trinity Art Gallery, an extension of Trinity Art Studios, will, also, host a fine art showcase at London City Island, exhibiting work from residents and the surrounding area. 

The Woods is a new music, photography and dance studio opening at London City Island by Three Bears Entertainment, who have recently worked with Mr James Arthur and Mr Aston Merrigold. Forming part of the Unity Arts Festival programme, The Woods studios will be putting festival goers through their paces with a series of dance workshops and fitness classes across the weekend taught by tutors who can be seen on TV, film and theatre.

The Woods will, also, host a photography exhibition by island resident Ms Sokari Higgwe, along with drop-in music production workshops and a choir drop-in session taught by Mr Byron Gold, who appeared with his choir on BBC 2'S The Naked Choir with Gareth Malone. English National Ballet, who will soon be relocating to London City Island, will take advantage of the new dance studios at the development, hosting workshops and demonstrations. 

Children will be able to explore the world of animation with London City Island resident Mr Tim Allen, who will be holding workshops for children aged six to 15. Creating plasticine figures, participants will be able to see their characters come to life through the magic of animation.

For those with a passion for film, Goodluck Hope will host Unity Arts Festival’s very own movie marathon in the renovated warehouse. London Film School’s brightest students, who will soon call the peninsula their new home, will host screenings of some of their exciting work.  Guests will also be able to explore Goodluck Hope’s palm grove and sweeping Thames-side terrace. 

Rooted in the rich history of Leamouth Peninsula, Trinity Buoy Wharf offers festival goers a reflective glance at the area’s maritime heritage, as well as, an exclusive look into its 20 year status as an urban oasis for creatives. Home to a diverse cross section of artists, the community at Trinity Buoy Wharf will open their doors for Unity Arts Festival and people will be encouraged to visit the studios and explore the area by walking the Street Art Trail, curated by renowned street art historian Garry Hunter.  Visitors will have the opportunity to visit the Sculpture Park and even be able to take part in a parkour workshop courtesy of the London Parkour Academy.

The Big Draw and The Line, in partnership with Unity Arts Festival, present the ultimate urban sketch crawl and drop-in artist-led workshops. The sketch crawl will start at Greenwich Peninsula and will take you on a drawing adventure through Trinity Buoy Wharf, Goodluck Hope and London City Island.

The workshops, hosted at Trinity Art Studios, will offer a wonderful opportunity to explore and be inspired by the evolving landscape and the sculptures along The Line. The Big Draw artists will lead the workshops and will encourage you to imagine the future of the island. Your ideas, designs and drawings will form part of our Uniting the Island exhibition.

About Unity Arts Festival: Unity Arts Festival was created in response to the rapid development of new housing and the influx of new people to Leamouth Peninsula. Its purpose is to bridge communities through the arts.  In this first year it is the established arts community of Trinity Buoy Wharf and the expanding community of London City Island to which the festival gives focus.  It is, also, a year where foundations are being laid to welcome Goodluck Hope and its new residents to the festival programme.

Through the unity of artists and arts organisations, the festival strives to bring quality content through a series of exhibitions, performances and workshops; the intention being, to encourage and inspire visitors to both observe and to participate in the arts of UNITY.

About London City Island: London City Island will comprise 1,700 new homes set on an island of 12 acres, with independent artisan restaurants, shops, creative hubs and al fresco spaces. The development takes its inspiration from the area’s maritime heritage, with bold primary colours and making use of its waterside surroundings with river walkways. Additionally, all Island residents will become members of the City Island Arts Club, the island’s own private residents’ club which includes a striking red swimming pool of bright, seafaring red tiles - the trademark hue which appears throughout the island.

About Goodluck Hope: Encircled by water, Goodluck Hope is a new riverside neighbourhood comprising 804 homes, phase one is due to complete in 2020. Adjacent to London City Island, future home to English National Ballet and London Film School, Goodluck Hope is a short walk to Canning Town station across a new pedestrian footbridge. Goodluck Hope is developed by Ballymore, one of Europe’s leading property developers synonymous with great design, architecture and regeneration and with a reputation for innovative projects that push boundaries and energise cities.

About Trinity Buoy Wharf: In 1998, Trinity Buoy Wharf was an empty, derelict site. Now it is a thriving centre for the arts and creative industries with a rare community of over 500 likeminded people enjoying the unique riverside location. Free from overdevelopment, the site's fascinating history can still be seen in the buildings, installations and residents such as the Lightship LV95 that is moored here.

With careful regeneration, Trinity Buoy Wharf has kept its character whilst offering amenities such as studio and gallery space, a pier, school, rehearsal rooms and two dining options in the form of Orchard Cafe and Fat Boys all American diner and 4 of the hugely sustainable Container City buildings.:::ω.

Having Come Through the Other End of Brain Cancer What Is John Lawson Upto Now: Go and See Him at His Restaurant for Some Neurological Renderings as You Help Raise £10,000 for the Brain Research Campaign: Where: Leigh-on-Sea: When: October 27

 

 

 

|| July 19: 2018 || ά. On Saturday, October 27, Chef Mr John Lawson will be hosting an intimate dining experience with the help of his former teacher and mentor, Mr Raymond Blanc OBE and fellow protégés Mr Robin Gill and Mr Ollie Dabbous, in aid of ‘Brain Tumour Research Campaign’. Taking place at his restaurant ‘FOOD’ in Leigh-on-Sea, Essex, brain cancer survivor Mr Lawson and his Team will cook using only seasonal ingredients, that benefit the brain. Aiming to raise £10,000, each Chef will create a beautifully presented and full of flavour dish free from gluten, dairy and refined sugar for diners to enjoy.

Having been diagnosed with a cancerous brain tumour in 2015, ‘Brain Tumour Research Campaign’ is a charity close to Mr Lawson’s heart. “Every day I am grateful to be here and to be cooking again. There was a point when I thought it would never happen. I couldn't, even, peel a carrot three years ago, following my seizure. I am one of the lucky ones. I see my role now as a Chef and Spokesperson; I want to help change things to make people more aware of brain tumours. It’s pretty scary stuff as this type of cancer is now responsible for the highest number of death within the under 40 age bracket, yet, it is the most underfunded and under researched.’’ Mr Lawson said.

‘’I hope that this event will help not only raise money for much needed research but, also, awareness. Everything we will be cooking will be in line with my restaurant’s ethos, with health and well-being at the forefront. My tumour is slow growing and can come back at any time. There are thousands of other people in the UK, who, just like me, are living with a brain tumour now, so I wanted to do my part and try to change the statistics.”

Running from 12:00, on Saturday, October 27, Mr Lawson’s ‘brain food’ dinner will mark the restaurants first anniversary. Established to reintroduce healthy, seasonal cooking, using only ingredients sourced as locally as possible to the restaurant scene on the Essex coast, upon opening ‘FOOD’, Mr Lawson promised to give guests an unforgettable food experience, with a soft yet incredibly important side of nutrition.

A year after opening, ‘FOOD’ boasts passionate regulars, who return to enjoy his no menu concept in the knowledge that their meal won’t cause their bodies any harm, only nourishment.  

Tickets to ‘brain food’ are priced at £150 per person and are available to purchase by telephone on August 01 between 10:00 and 16:00. The booking number is 01702 840904 during that time. For more details about the event  visit their website.

About Brain Tumour Research Campaign: The Brain Tumour Research Campaign was founded in 2004 and aims to raise public awareness of the desperate need for brain tumour research; to lead a fundraising campaign to support research into and treatment of brain tumours and to assist the emergence of an international Brain Tumour Research Centre of Excellence, based at Charing Cross Hospital in London.

Run on a purely voluntary basis, 100% of the donations go directly to the research projects, with all administrative costs being borne by the volunteers. Since its creation, £02.75 million has been raised and invested in a unique translational programme taking research from laboratory to clinical research, with the aim of finding new treatments for this long-neglected cancer.

We are very proud to be the nominated charity to benefit from this exciting and prestigious event and hope that it will take us a step further towards our goal of finding a cure for this devastating disease, which has, until recently, received less than 01% of national cancer research funding despite having the lowest survival rates of any cancer in this country.

Brain Tumour Research Campaign is based at 12-15 Hanger Green, London, W5 3EL: Tele: +44:0: 20 8601 2402: Website: btrc-charity.org: email: info at btrc-charity.org :::ω.

Running for Young Epilepsy

 

 

 

|| July 17: 2018 || ά. Mr Andrew Williams, Mr Bob Gibbs and Mr Jon Nock representing Abacus Specialist Bathroom Solutions successfully completed the British 10k in London on Sunday to raise funds for charity. Running to raise donations for the Young Epilepsy charity, which tackles Epilepsy with children and young people across the UK. It delivers world class diagnosis, assessment and rehabilitation, as well as, pioneering research, specialist education, a helpline and national outreach services.

Abacus supplies and supports a power-assisted Gemini height adjustable platform bath at its specialist educational campus in Lingfield, Surrey. Starting at Wellington Arch, the team ran in sweltering conditions past several famous landmarks, including, Big Ben, Westminster Abbey and finishing next to Trafalgar Square. Out of 15,000 entrants, official results show Jon finished in 1,743th place with a time of 00:50:38, Andy crossed the line in 3,214th place on 00:55:50 and Bob finished at 00:55:51 in 3,220th place. And that’s not bad at all while raising the desired funds for the cause.

Mr Andrew Williams, Abacus Marketing Manager said, “I have run a half marathon previously and play competitive cricket, however, I have never run a 10k race before, especially, in that heat. It was tough as I was carrying a back injury but running with Bob and Jon, plus the support from the charity pushed me on.

It was a really memorable experience and would like to thank everyone, who has donated to our final total of £750; it will make a significant difference to lots of young people living with Young Epilepsy.”  

Ms Martha Knight, Fundraising Co-ordinator for Young Epilepsy, joined several supporters from the charity on Embankment at the eight kilometre mark near Westminster Bridge. She cheered on all the Young Epilepsy runners and concluded, “Thank you so much Abacus for representing us; you continue to be incredible Ambassadors for our charity.”

Livability: More Than Welcome for Welcoming People with Disabilities

 

 

|| July 15: 2018 || ά. On Friday, July 13, Livability joined Archbishop Justin Welby, The Archbishop of Canterbury for an important conference at Lambeth Palace to discuss how disabled people can participate fully in the life of the church. The day’s theme considered what barriers disabled people can face in church life and what churches can do to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to take part and share their gifts and talents.

Livability has been partnering with Lambeth Palace in the development of the conference and have helped to shape the conference’s discussion agenda for the day. To mark the event, Livability is launching a new resource, ‘More Than Welcome’, to help churches consider their response to disabled people and equip churches to work for full participation in their setting. The report has been endorsed by Archbishop Justin Welby, who is the President of Livability.

Archbishop Justin Welby said, ‘’Without the presence, experience and skills of disabled people, we are incomplete. That is true in the church and in wider society. It is our calling to work to build the most effective routes to participation at every level. It is a privilege to be President of Livability and I’m delighted that this new resource will help churches not just welcome disabled people but enable them to participate fully in every aspect of church life.

The resource is a wonderful affirmation of all the good work churches are already doing across the UK. But it, also, provides practical and hopeful support to go further on the journey.

More Than Welcome is a new resource to guide churches in how to deepen relationships with disabled people and build a church where everyone belongs. Based on the idea of a journey, the resource is designed to help churches go through three important stages, from a place of welcome, to inclusion, to participation. The resource provides inspiration, guidance, stories and tips of things to work on to see people fully taking part.

Livability has launched the resource in response to the fact that lots of disability is unseen. The UK government recognises 11 million people as having long term illness, impairment or disability. That’s one person in six but much of disability is hidden or invisible. Churches must play an important part in responding.

Mr Mat Ray, Head of Church Partnerships, says, ‘We don’t realise that those sitting in the pews around us have, often, overcome barriers of all kinds to be there. Many people experience ‘hidden’ or ‘invisible’ disability in the form of mental illness or chronic conditions. Every church, that wants to offer a radical welcome needs to start by take time to understand these barriers. Together, we must work to create spaces of hospitality and belonging. Our hope is that ‘More Than Welcome’ will help churches to go on this journey.’

Ms Helen England, CEO for Livability, says, ‘’At Livability we know that our partnership with churches across the UK is a major way in which we can support disabled and isolated people.

Churches are so often at the heart of their community and play an important role in connecting people and tackling isolation. We are proud to have helped to shape and share in this disability conference at Lambeth Palace and look forward to continuing this vital work in ensuring churches become places of true participation for all.’’

The resource is available for free download from the Livability web site.

About Livability: Livability is the disability charity, that connects people with their communities. We tackle social isolation and the barriers, that can cause this in the lives of disabled and vulnerable people. Through a wide range of disability, education, training and community services, we promote inclusion and wellbeing for all. Together, we work to see people take part, contribute and be valued. We put the elements in place that all add up to connected lives and communities.

Livability’s Services: Livability is a proven and trusted provider of disability care and community projects throughout the UK. Our 2000-strong, enabling team of staff and volunteers across the UK deliver:

The British Food Fortnight September 22-October 07: British Food Fortnight Competition 2018 Opens

|| July 10: 2018 || ά. Love British Food is delighted to launch this year’s competition, run in association with Co-op, to find the best community celebration of British food.  Schools, hospitals, care homes, community groups, pubs, restaurants and whole villages, towns and cities are invited to take part during British Food Fortnight, which takes place on September 22-October 07.

Now in its 6th year, this popular competition has seen a tremendous variety of entries over the years from care homes, schools, village groups, councils, local authority caterers and many community leaders, who use British Food Fortnight as an opportunity to celebrate the food produced in their part of the country.  Previous winners include the cities of Peterborough and Bath, Emsworth market town in Hampshire and the village of Haslington in Cheshire, proving that large and small communities can take part.

Last year’s winner was the Ginger and Spice Festival in Market Drayton, that used the competition to establish a community celebration of their food heritage, particularly, the much-loved Gingerbread Man!

A superb group of high-profile judges from the food industry are involved in the competition this year, including, Mr Raymond Blanc, OBE, Ms Liz Earle, CBE, Ms Candice Brown and Ms Minette Batters, President of the NFU alongside founder of British Food Fortnight, Ms Alexia Robinson and Ms Breige Donaghy, Director of Delicious Food at Co-op.

“The competition gets bigger each year as increasing numbers of people and communities are realising how important it is to support our farmers, producers and local food business.  This competition is a super opportunity for communities to come together and appreciate the delicious and diverse food that is produced on our doorsteps.” said Ms Alexia Robinson.

“We are looking for entries, that educate people about British food and events, that strengthen the local community and provide a legacy, that can be built on year on year.”

Mr Raymond Blanc has been involved with the competition since it was launched back in 2012.  He said, “Last year the entries were incredible, from care homes, preschools and, even, a hospital roof garden got involved.  It was great to see so many varied events taking place.  The 2017 winner, Ginger and Spice Festival in Market Drayton already has plans to make the festival bigger and better. So, we’re expecting more inspirational entries this year.”

Ms Breige Donaghy, Director of Delicious Food, Co-op said, “As committed supporters of British produce, Co-op are delighted to be Official Partner of Love British Food and British Food Fortnight again this year.  This competition is a great way for communities, friends and families to come together to celebrate British food and drink, and I am looking forward to seeing this year’s entries”

As well as having a Love British Food Ambassador attend their event in 2019, the winners will be presented with the Love British Food 2018 trophy, £250 in Co-op vouchers, as well as, a case of Co-op award winning ‘Les Pionniers’ champagne and a selection of goodies from the campaign ambassadors.

Lloyds Scholars is a Great Scheme That Should Reach More Students: A Kira Swannell's Experience: This Year's Deadline May 25

 
 


||May 10: 2018: University of Birmingham News || ά. An scholarship programme run in partnership with Lloyds Banking Group is supporting student development, as well as, contributing to the local community. The Lloyds Scholars Scheme offers undergraduate students from lower household incomes a complete package of financial support, paid internships and the opportunity to develop employability skills. In turn, scholars commit to carry out 100 hours of voluntary community work each year of their degree. Lloyds Scholar 21-year-old Ms Kira Swannell, from Redditch, is studying Sports Science at the University. Once at the University she joined the Community Challenge society, a group run by other students on the Lloyds Scholars programme, that arranges a variety of one-off volunteering events throughout Birmingham, supporting groups from the homeless to the elderly, which served to inspire her own activities.

These are the vital kind of real initiatives connecting the students to the reality of the communities while they are studying so that they develop and nurture that link and bond with the community, reality and humanity so that they remember why they are at universities and why they are studying. We learn not for ourselves for a teacher's knowledge is lighting lights up in all other young minds, that one teaches. Yes, in the money based system a teacher gets paid but put this aside and see who this teacher's knowledge is benefitting: it is the others and take the single individual away from all that others and she:he stands alone and looks at the others and thinks: that's my family, that whom I am connected to and that where I come from. This is humanity. Community is the beating heart of this humanity. We are glad that such a programme has been developed and in operation by the Lloyds Group.

Ms Swannell's main involvement is Wellbeing Wednesday, where she and a group of ten other scholars visit a local school at Balham Wood in Rubery and run a variety of activities, that the pupils wouldn’t, normally, get a chance to do. Aimed at children from years seven to 11, activities include sport, art, fashion and music, as well as, tutoring for older pupils. Many students at Balham Wood are from deprived areas and so lack the opportunities available to many youngsters their age. Through Wellbeing Wednesdays, Ms Swannell and her team let these young people take part in activities they wouldn’t otherwise be able to, helping them build their confidence, pursue their hobbies and learn new skills in a fun and enjoyable way.

She said, “Most of the pupils we work with don’t have a lot of opportunities, even, simple stuff like extracurricular activities. With our volunteering, we try to arrange events, that let these kids have fun and learn a lot.”

Tutoring, also, gives the older students the support they need to pass their exams and build on their opportunities. When Ms Swannell first began tutoring maths as part of the project, many of the pupils struggled, getting many answers wrong. Seeing them progress and watching them score high marks across the board in a practice test at the end of term, was one of her high points from the year.

Keen to work with children after leaving university, she thinks volunteering has, also, had practical benefits for her own future. She believes that the programme has improved her communication skills and her leadership, enabling her to interact with people of all ages, keeping them engaged whilst imparting knowledge at the same time.

University Scholarship Co-ordinator Ms Jessica Cooper said, “The Lloyds Scholars programme plays an invaluable role in supporting the retention, achievement and effective progression into graduate employment of talented university students from low income backgrounds. Supporting talented undergraduates like Kira is an important part of our work and I am thrilled that she has gained so much from it.”

If you think you have what it takes to be a Lloyds Scholar, applications for this year has opened already and can be applied through the Scolarship website but mind the deadline: May 25.

Regine Humanics Foundation Begins Its Journey Today: The Humanion Is Now A Regine Humanics Foundation Publication
 
 


|| April 06: 2018 || ά. The Humanion was first published on September 24, 2015 and has been run, since that day, on a complete voluntary basis without any 'formal' or 'constituted' manner or form and, it was run on as a Human Enterprise, which is an idea of Humanics, in which, ownership is replaced by belongingship and, thus, in a Humanical Society, no one owns anything but everyone belongs to the whole as the whole belongs to everyone lawfully and equally and, it neither believes in nor makes money but human utilities, needs, aspirations, creativity, imagination and dreams are served without money, where everyone works and creates for all others as all others create and work for all others, thus, bringing in meaning and purpose to life along with it come natural justice, equality and liberty, that establish a true civilisation within the Rule of Law. And in one word, this system of human affairs management is called, Humanics and a society that runs itself in humanics is called a humanical society. Today, we have begun the process of 'constituting' this Human Enterprise, which does not exist in the current system, but the next closest thing to it, that exists in the UK Law is Social Enterprise. Therefore, today, Friday, April 06, 2018, we are beginning Regine Humanics Foundation, that is the 'Agency', that will lead, run, manage and develop everything, that The Humanion has been trying to do.

Regine Humanics Foundation is established by the Thinker, Author, Poet, Novelist, Playwright, Editor of The Humanion, Festival Director of London Poetry Festival and a Humanicsxian: hu: maa: neek: tian: One, that believes in, lives and exists by Humanics, Mr Munayem Mayenin, of London, England, United Kingdom. Mr Mayenin says, ''Humanics is a vision; people, may, call it, utopia, we, call it our Humanicsovicsopia; Humanics. Humanics is our philosophy, our faith, our conviction, our resolution, our way of existing, thinking, being and doing: to seek and try to do so in the determination that all we must do and be is to exist to advance the human condition. People, readers and agencies and organisations, from all across England, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales and the whole of the United Kingdom and Australasia, Africa, Asia, Europe, North and South America, from all walks and strata of life, have supported our endeavours, supported The Humanion and The Humanion Team, who volunteered their time to run things, since the beginning of The Humanion and long before that, when other things, that are now part of The Foundation, were developing. Nothing has changed in terms of the nature and value of what we have been seeking to do.''

''But the founding of The Foundation brings it all in a solid foundation so that we can keep on building this 'vision' so that it keeps on going regardless of who come to take the vision-mission of The Foundation forward. The Foundation runs along with time and along with the flowing humanity. This is the dream, this is the vision, this the hope in founding this Foundation. And, in this, we hope and invite all our readers, supporters, well wishers and all agencies and organisations to support our endeavours to build something, a Human Enterprise, which we are in the process of registering as a Social Enterprise, as a Community Interest Company, working for the common good of the one and common humanity. No one makes or takes profit out of The Foundation, which now runs The Humanion and everything else, that is part of it. The Foundation, once registered, will have an Asset Lock, which means that in any event, should The Foundation dissolve itself, all its existing assets shall go to a similar Social Enterprise. Therefore, we invite everyone to support The Foundation, support The Humanion in whatever way they can. And, there are endless number of ways people and organisations can support The Foundation and The Humanion.'' ::: ω.

Rare Genetic Diseases: Amplify Hope for Those Who are Left on Their Own

 

|| February 07: 2018 || ά. Rare Genomics Institute:RG has announced the publication of conclusions from their Amplify Hope Study in the Interactive Journal of Medical Research:IJMR. The paper, Engaging a Community for Rare Genetic Disease: Best Practices and Education From Individual Crowdfunding Campaigns, discusses their findings from the programme created to help rare disease families crowdfund to pay for needed genetic testing. “By empowering families, engaging our community and connecting directly with providers for needed genetics services, we hope to shorten the diagnostic odyssey and get these children on the road to answers and, hopefully, one day, a cure.

We are so grateful to receive the support of the John Templeton Foundation to do what we do best, support our rare disease families.” said Ms Romina Ortiz, MHS, COO of the Rare Genomics Institute. Rare Genomics Institute was founded in 2011 to fill the health care gap for undiagnosed rare disease patients and supporting research in rare diseases. RG helps rare disease patients find a diagnosis, treatment and pathway to a cure by individualised access, co-ordination and execution of genetic sequencing and research services with RG and its affiliates. RG, also, supports rare disease advocacy by fostering an online community of rare disease patients and supporting rare disease research through a yearly grant competition.

RG hopes that these efforts slowly push science and care forward to meet the needs of the patients affected by rare diseases. Because of the funding from the John Templeton Foundation, this programme was developed and delivered for rare disease families free of charge. Partners on the project included two life sciences technology leaders: Ambry Genetics and Baylor Miraca Genetics Laboratories and three leading pioneers in crowd funding: CrowdRise, Indiegogo Life and YouCaring.

The rigorous 30 day programme trained families on topics ranging from: preparation before launching their campaigns, reaching out to networks, leveraging social media and video content and understanding different crowd funding platforms The Amplify Hope study included a series of free online live webinar training events from top experts around the world, live phone assistance and coaching from experienced experts.

Of the 86 study inquiries, 11 participants submitted the required forms and launched their crowd funding campaigns. A total of four of the 11 campaigns raised their goal amounts within 30 days. We found that social media played an important role in all campaigns. Specifically, a strong social media network, an active outreach process to networks, as well as, engagement within the study all correlated with a higher success rate.
