GREENCROWN Energys Paul Errigo announces another successful year for the Rock for Hope Concert benefiting St. Jude Childrens Research Hospital fundraising effort.

brianjo 42

Belleville, New Jersey (PRWEB) July 17, 2015 Belleville, New Jersey – Paul Errigo, President and Director of Business Development at GREENCROWN Energy, who also serves on the board for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital’s “Rock for Hope” Concert – a popular annual event in New York City that raises money to benefit children with cancer – called the latest charitable bash a resounding success. Mr. Errigo said it’s an incredible honor to serve as a committee member for this tremendously worthwhile cause. “This charity is important to us because of the incredible work St. Jude does on behalf of children with cancer,” he said. “Anything GREENCROWN Energy can do as an organization to help assist them with their fund-raising efforts, such as concerts like “Rock for Hope” or other events, we’re more than happy to lend a hand.” Errigo added “that this year’s concert, which is always heavily supported by the Wall Street community, allowed us raise over $ 2 Million in just 5 annual events for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital; and it was another night of spectacular music and fun”. “Families whose children are diagnosed with cancer have to bear a tremendous burden, and St. Jude’s helps alleviate some of that burden for them. No patient (or family member of a patient) who is treated at St. Jude’s ever receives a bill, which is a miracle in itself.” Giving back to the community and organizations like St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is a priority for GREENCROWN Energy.” He went on to say that while GREENCROWN Energy’s work as a leading full-service energy & water advisory organization is vital in today’s world of rising utility prices, it doesn’t compare to the work being done by St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. “According to the American Cancer Association, about 10,380 children in the US will be diagnosed with cancer this year alone,” Errigo noted. “And while there have been significant advances in treatment, cancer remains the second leading cause of death among children. “I encourage anybody interested supporting their relentless fight to defeat childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases to check out the St. Jude website for volunteer or donation opportunities, and we hope to see even more people at next year’s Rock for Hope Concert in 2016!” About GREENCROWN Energy GREENCROWN Energy is a nationally known, industry-diverse leader in advisory services for electric and gas procurement, and turnkey energy & water conservation projects. GREENCROWN delivers expert advice and results for properties and businesses nationwide in a variety of industries; including but not limited to high rise and multi-family, property management organizations, hotels, campuses, medical, retail, hospitality, health & fitness, and many more.

Grassroots Efforts Driving Global Human Rights Movement

brianjo 80

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) June 11, 2015 Empowerment and reforms were the focus of a global human rights education effort this month through concerts, marches, school programs and seminars in areas as diverse as Oregon, Italy, Burundi, Bangladesh and Brazil. Spearheading the effort were two leading nonprofit advocacy groups, United for Human Rights and Youth for Human Rights, both sponsored by the Church of Scientology as part of its efforts to draw attention to the critical importance of human rights worldwide. Among the numerous activities inspired by the educational outreach was an initiative by one social work supervisor in Minneapolis. She ordered the United for Human Rights Education Package to introduce the 16 clinical social workers she mentors to the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights and its application to their clients. Other initiatives inspired by the programs include the following: In Burundi, a Youth for Human Rights Group sprang up under the leadership of an NGO that contacted Youth for Human Rights International. After reading about the group on its websites, they requested permission to officially launch Youth for Human Rights Chapters in their country. One university in Oregon contacted Youth for Human Rights International requesting permission to stream the group’s public service announcements at their extended campus. It also requested to stream and host the videos in a web-based Spanish course so students, teaching assistants, instructors and course development staff can use the materials in their educational activities. In Albania, two students who attended the 3rd annual Asian Human Rights Summit in Taiwan in May returned home ready to introduced a number of initiatives in their native country, learned from youth delegates from Taiwan, Nepal and Japan. In Bangladesh, the recently formed local Youth for Human Rights group organized and held workshops for more than 100 university students. Workshops for hundreds more are planned. The head of a foundation in Kitwe, Zambia, created an educational program called “Know your Rights” to be launched across that nation. The program intends to partner with churches, religious groups, cooperative societies and schools, and use the Youth for Human Rights materials to teach the Universal Declaration of Human Rights to youths and adults, with educators in at least 10 provinces volunteering to train with these materials. A lecturer with a Madagascar university ordered a set of United for Human Rights educational materials to use in his mentoring of a group of young people dedicated to peace and human rights. A graduate student in Nigeria wrote to United for Human Rights after receiving the group’s educational materials, expressing his own commitment to make sure that this message reaches his community. He plans to use them in his volunteer work, teaching an undergraduate human rights in world politics course and in a project to promote a culture of peace and human rights in secondary schools. In Brazil, a professor of sociology thanked United for Human Rights for the quality of its educational materials, which he said have made his human rights education program so much more effective. Four city councils in Italy used these materials in an event attended by the region’s primary school children and their grandparents. Called “From Roots to Wings,” the program involves the grandparents in activities to impart their wisdom to future generations. Scientologists on five continents engage in collaborative efforts with government agencies and nongovernmental organizations to bring about broad-scale awareness and implementation of the 1948 United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the world’s premier human rights document.

The Original Journals of a Civil War Veteran, Chicagoland Native are the Focus of a New Book and Exhibit by the Pritzker Military Museum & Library

brianjo 62

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) June 19, 2015 The Pritzker Military Museum & Library will host a free public reception next Wednesday, June 24, to officially launch its newest original work and to unveil an accompanying exhibit on the life and times of Civil War veteran and Valparaiso, Ind. native Erasmus Corwin Gilbreath. The event will begin at 4:30 p.m. on the Museum & Library’s main floor, and will be immediately followed by a formal discussion and recording for television by the book’s editor and others involved in its production, beginning at 6 p.m. The Museum & Library’s third major publication, “Dignity of Duty: The Journals of Erasmus Corwin Gilbreath, 1861-1898″ will be released in hardcover and e-book formats and comprises three original documents assembled and edited by Gilbreath’s great-granddaughter, Susan Gilbreath Lane—who discovered the papers in an archive in the late 1970s. The exhibit includes authentic photographs and artifacts from Gilbreath’s scrapbooks, hand-drawn maps commissioned for the book, additional materials on 19th Century America pulled from the PMML’s collection, and a dynamic online gallery and audio experience. “Major Gilbreath was a mid-ranking field officer and family man who witnessed much of America’s 19th Century history—and he did it with a rifle and pen in hand,” said Museum & Library President & CEO Kenneth Clarke. “Journals like these are very rare.” Severely wounded at the Battle of Fredericksburg during the Civil War—a wound that would haunt him for the rest of his life—Gilbreath not only went on to a successful 37-year military career, but also bore witness to the coming of age of America as we know it. In his later journals, he shares many remarkable experiences, including a hazardous 175-mile journey by stagecoach in the Texas frontier during the Indian Wars; a shipwreck off the Gulf coast; travels in a wagon train pulled by mules with pet names; the second Great Chicago Fire; and the establishment of Fort Custer in the Montana Territory, where his daughter was born in a tent with his cook acting as a midwife. To provide context for the book and exhibit, Lane will be joined by historian Frederick J. Chiaventone for the 6 p.m. recording of “Pritzker Military Presents“—one of two long-running series produced by the Museum & library for Chicago public television. Advance registration and a separate ticket are required to attend this program. To learn more about the incredible life of this 19th Century American soldier, the new book and exhibit by the Pritzker Military Museum & Library, or the June 24 premiere event, visit dignityofduty.org or pritzkermilitary.org. About the Pritzker Military Museum & Library: The Pritzker Military Museum & Library is open to the public and features an extensive collection of books, artifacts, and rotating exhibits covering many eras and branches of the military. Since opening in 2003, it has become a center where citizens and Citizen Soldiers come together to learn about military history and the role of the Armed Forces in today’s society. The Museum & Library is a non-partisan, non-government information center supported by its members and sponsors. About Erasmus Corwin Gilbreath: Born in Ohio in 1840, Erasmus Corwin Gilbreath spent his formative years in Valparaiso, Ind., where his parents settled in his youth. Following the death of his father, Gilbreath studied law and worked to support his family until he was called upon in 1861 to assist in the raising of the 20th Indiana Volunteer Regiment. Over the course of a 37-year military career, Gilbreath reached the rank of major twice—once as a volunteer and once with the regular Army—chronicling his experiences while serving in nearly every major battle of the Civil War; on various official assignments throughout the Indian Wars with his wife and children by his side; and finally in Puerto Rico during the Spanish-American War, where he lost his life to an illness in 1898.
