McLaren Beverly Hills to Donate 570S Spider for Auction at Cirque Du Soleil’s One Night for One Drop

McLaren Beverly Hills is partnering with One Night for One Drop to auction a special “Racing Through the Ages Collection” 570S Spider in Muriwai White on March 8th in Las Vegas at the “O” Theatre in the Bellagio Resort & Casino.

The bespoke vehicle was designed in the UK by McLaren Special Operations (MSO) and features a special MSO rear wing, a GT4 inspired racing stripe, a retractable hardtop, and carbon-fiber racing seats. The car is further complemented by the MSO defined “Black Pack” featuring the 10-spoke super lightweight forged wheels in gloss black and an MSO defined titanium SuperSports exhaust, guaranteeing a power-fused, soul-stirring drive. The estimated value is $300,000 USD.

One Night for One Drop is an annual philanthropic event in which the Cirque du Soleil cast and crew donate their time and talent to create a spectacular theatrical show in support of One Drop, an international non-profit organization dedicated to providing long term access to safe water. This year, the event features Academy-Award winning film score composer Hans Zimmer as well as the iconic Blue Man Group and renowned choreographers, Andrew Winghart and Alexander Ekman. In addition to providing water to communities in need all over the globe and working towards a more sustainable future, a portion of the proceeds remains local going towards Las Vegas Water initiatives.

“McLaren Beverly Hills is extremely happy to be able to partner with an organization like One Drop. Providing sustainable access to safe water throughout the world is essential to ending poverty facilitating community development. It’s fantastic to know the funds raised from the auction of our Racing Through The Ages 570S Spider will go to such a noble and well-respected cause. We look forward to an ongoing partnership and supporting One Drop whenever possible in the future.” – Chris Blank, Brand Manager at McLaren Beverly Hills

“It is our duty as a worldwide recognized brand to promote a charity organization such as One Drop. The Muriwai White 570S is a car inspired by the ocean and seemed like the perfect nexus to represent our support to the people who, globally, still need access to water. We are very happy to contribute to the live auction with such an exciting item that will hopefully raise awareness, raise funds and help make the world a better place.” – Letizia Silvestri, Events Director at McLaren Beverly Hills

Tzu Chi USA Spreads Love After California Wildfires

The Camp Fire, which began on November 8, is now the deadliest wildfire in California history with 44 fatalities.It razed through more than 117,000 acres in Northern California and destroyed over 7,000 buildings. The Woolsey Fire, too, has burned through more than 93,000 acres and destroyed at least 435 structures in Los Angeles County.

Once these fires started, Tzu Chi USA’s Northwest Regional Office volunteers quickly mobilized. On November 9 & 10, they distributed emergency supplies including 550 blankets to residents sheltered at the Neighborhood Church of Chico to offer residents physical comfort as the flames continue. Some slept in their own vehicles and others were forced to sleep on the lawn.

In Southern California, too, Tzu Chi volunteers assessed the situation at shelters across Los Angeles (including at the Palisades Charter High School, Taft High School, Pierce College, and Canoga Park High School) to see what they could do to help.

There is still a concern for the region’s safety, as fierce winds lingering in the region are anticipated to start two major wildfires west of Los Angeles, including one that has already killed two in Malibu. Starting Tuesday, November 13, these winds may escalate to hurricane-like force. Residents of this region are still at risk of critical danger, and Tzu Chi USA’s headquarters has already completed its first assessment and is ready for its next steps.

Until further aid may be given, Tzu Chi volunteers from across the country will head a street fundraising campaign this weekend across the US to raise funds for those who’ve suffered severe losses through California’s fires. Volunteers from Tzu Chi’s Northwestern Regional office will also continue to distribute blankets to help residents stay warm.

Still, our volunteers will need your help. Contributions can help provide someone with a warm blanket, a hot meal, or a cash card to let a family decide what they need most to move forward.

Lily CBD

From a mother dealing with the physical and mental struggle of arthritis, fibromyalgia and sciatica, (former Director @ Spike Lee’s agency Spike DDB)  Russell Markus, Founder of Lily CBD, sought out healthy alternatives for his mom. The journey through chia seeds and sensory deprivation tanks ultimately lead him to CBD.

“I desperately wanted to provide my mother & close friends a healthy alternative to help with their physical struggles and stresses. As a society, we’ve been so conditioned to use pills that provide short term benefits, yet they often lead to long term issues. Let’s be honest, we all know friends and family who have been victims to these pills that have spread like a wildfire throughout our society. I was desperate to make sure that didn’t happen to the people I loved.”

The journey led him to launch Lily CBD, a hemp based CBD oil, born from a desire to give ourselves and those we love an alternative to the conventional ways of calming and nurturing the mind and body. Named after two loving maternal great-grandmothers from Brooklyn, Lily CBD, a CBD focused company, is crafted to help you feel alive.

Lily CBD was laser focused on sharing their organic practice CBD to friends and family in early April to begin collecting feedback. Starting in late May, Lily CBD launched in Soho House, The Assemblage, and Parsley Health and officially opened up their eComm store to the public in July. The currently company is self funded. “Finding partners was not about quantity, rather finding individuals & organizations who were to be progressive in their approach to health & helping society,” says Russell.

In August, the brand continued growing it’s partner network with locations like HealHaus, a wellness center in Brooklyn, Clover Grocery in the West Village, The End in Williamsburg, Office Coffee on Canal Street and STAE Beauty Essentials @ The Surf Lodge in Montauk. The brand will continue to expand its list of national partnerships throughout the remainder of 2018 and into the following year. “There’s a lot of product on the market, and I only feel comfortable sharing a CBD with the world that, I feel comfortable with my family taking. While I haven’t tried all the CBD that’s out there, our full-spectrum and terpene rich formula is unmatched to any lab results I’ve seen. ”

On LilyCBD.com, customers and clients can select from a range of strengths depending on their own personal ailments and general health. Lily CBD is committed to working with single source, organic practices, family farms and is creating a network of farms accessible within 100 miles of the state of New York.

“We needed to be able to sit with farmers, help in the harvest and touch & feel the product. As the industry grows, expected to far exceed $20 billion by 2020, there’s going to be a range of quality in the market. We have to strive to share high quality CBD grown with integrity.”

In order to ensure integrity when helping to heal while providing clients with the best knowledge possible, Dr. Soyona Rafatjah (Formerly of Parsley Health) joined Lily CBD as Functional Medicine Advisor. “CBD can be an extremely effective treatment for a multitude of diagnoses, and comes with minimal if any negative effects. I have personally seen patients of mine find relief from various conditions like seizures, insomnia, anxiety, migraines, and pain, when no other therapies were helping. I believe that a combination of the increase in positive scientific studies and the positive feedback by millions of people who use it, can be credited for the skyrocketing usage and access to CBD products in the past few years. A 2017 survey from Brightfield Group and HelloMD on 150,000 people showed that 42% of people who used CBD had stopped their over the counter and prescription pain medications. With drug overdose recently becoming the leading cause of death in Americans under 50, CBD could be potentially reverse this trend, saving millions of lives of people in their prime years.” says Dr. Rafatjah.

Lily donates 5% of all sales goes to charities focused on children with Autism, Epilepsy and Mental Health Issues.

PRODUCT DETAILS

Lily CBD comes three retail strengths 500mg ($99), 1000mg ($179), and 1500mg ($249) & custom strengths for key food and beverage partners. The CBD is made with organic practice Hemp CBD Oil and non-gmo MCT coconut oil. Our organic practice hemp-CBD is farmed over a three months season. Once fully matured, the CBD is CO2 extracted from the hemp flower in a state-of-the-art facility in order to produce the cleanest, healthiest CBD possible. Our full spectrum oil is non-psychoactive and filled with CBD, CBC, CBG, CBDV, CVDA and a wide range of terpenes.

Our CBD has been tested for the quality of our cannabinoid breakdown, nutrients, and terpenes while ensuring it contains ZERO heavy metals, pesticides or any contaminants.

Infant Loss Retreat

The Ramsey Keller Memorial, a non-profit organization that pays for infant funerals in Montana, is launching its first-ever national retreat for moms who are living without a child. “The Retreat” is designed to connect moms in person and is slated for the weekend of October 26, 27 and 28 at Fairmont Hot Springs Resort near Butte, Montana. The registration fee is $325/person and moms, nationwide, who have experienced the loss of a child are invited to attend. Topics are primarily focused on infant loss (children 1 year of age or younger and stillborn babies). Nationally known keynote speaker and founder of Still Standing Magazine Franchesca Cox is donating her time in an effort to offer “The Retreat” at the lowest cost available. Registration includes all scheduled events, the resort room, all meals Saturday and Sunday and additional goodies for attendees.

“Franchesca Cox is known for helping moms grieve and fight for the privilege to love life again,” says Ramsey Keller Memorial Founder Kori Keller. “She has experienced the loss of her firstborn daughter and while she has spearheaded many local and worldwide projects in her daughter’s name, she found the most healing came from living life to the fullest. The Retreat is about celebrating our babies lives and finding joy in life, even through the grief. I’m grateful and humbled that Franchesca is coming to Montana to share her message with moms like myself who have lost a child.”

Franchesca Cox is the author of Facets of Grief: a creative workbook for grieving mothers, and Celebrating Pregnancy Again. She is scheduled to speak twice during the weekend retreat. Her topics are “The Space Between Love and Loss” and “Broken and Brave.” Cox is also opening up discussion on baby loss to attendees and inviting the audience to participate in a Q & A session.

“Surviving the aftermath of infant loss is something we, as mothers who have lost a child, think about often. Whether the loss was last month or last decade, this retreat has excellent programming with key takeaways for everyone, as well as a format designed to build lasting relationships,” says Founder of Still Standing Magazine Franchesca Cox.

“Women who attend The Retreat will walk away with a lifelong network of people who belong to the same club, one that no one wants to be part of, but who understand something that very few people do. We’re a network, an incredibly strong support system. We will bond together and grow together and we’re there for each other,” says Keller.

Check in for The Retreat opens Friday October 26 at 4:00 p.m. with opening remarks from Ramsey Keller Memorial Founder Kori Keller starting at 6:00 p.m. Saturday’s agenda kicks off at 8:00 a.m. with breakfast, followed by the keynote address from Franchesca Cox, break out topical discussions, a message from Kori Keller about unnecessary baggage, a creative outlet activity presented and donated by Held Your Whole Life, a second impactful message from Franchesca Cox followed by dinner at 6:00 p.m.. Sunday includes breakfast starting at 8:00 a.m. followed by a panel discussion. The Retreat wraps up at 11:00 a.m. Sunday.

For more information or to register, visit The Retreat Website. Moms are encouraged to seek sponsors if they choose to do so, as payment for the retreat is considered a non-profit donation to the Ramsey Keller Memorial. While the topics are tailored for moms who have experienced baby loss, moms are welcome to invite the women who support them to attend so that they may be joined by sisters, mothers and close friends.

For Lady Liberty Campaign

In the 1880s, publisher Joseph Pulitzer inspired thousands to support the construction of Lady Liberty’s pedestal in exchange for printing donors’ names in his newspaper, in what could be considered America’s first crowdfunding campaign. This Fourth of July, in recognition of this legacy, The Statue of Liberty-Ellis Island Foundation, Inc. (the Foundation) is launching a similar campaign – For Lady Liberty (forladyliberty.org) – to help build the new Statue of Liberty Museum.

Donations will go toward the fundraising initiative being led by the Foundation and campaign chairperson, Diane von Furstenberg. Scheduled to open in May 2019, the museum will celebrate the Statue of Liberty’s story, explore how she has evolved from national monument to global icon, consider the concept of liberty, and be the new home for her original torch.

“From building Lady Liberty’s pedestal in the 1880s to contributing to the 1986 centennial restoration – the American people have given whatever they could afford to support the Statue,” said Richard Flood, Vice President and Chief Advancement Officer for The Statue of Liberty-Ellis Island Foundation. “This crowdfunding campaign honors that history, ensuring that our fundraising efforts are inclusive, while also expanding the opportunity to a worldwide audience.”

Updated for the digital age, the month-long campaign will be held on Indiegogo, a leading online crowdfunding platform.

“I stumbled upon Joseph Pulitzer’s campaign when researching the concept of crowdfunding, and the idea of democratizing capital and what it achieved inspired me,” said Indiegogo co-founder Slava Rubin. “For me, the Statue will forever be an empowering monument to the many incredible entrepreneurs who have come to America and achieved so much, including my parents, and the challenges they overcame to make a better life for our family.”

A History of Public Support:

In the 1880s, The New York World publisher and Hungarian immigrant, Joseph Pulitzer, launched a now-legendary populist campaign to raise the necessary funds from the American people to complete construction of the Statue’s pedestal. More than 120,000 donors responded, some giving just a few pennies, and the funds were secured within months to complete the pedestal and unveil the Statue of Liberty in 1886.

One hundred years later, when the Foundation was tasked with raising funds for the Statue’s much-needed restoration, a form of crowdfunding was used again. Community groups from across the United States collected money to contribute to the centennial restoration, with donations from school children alone topping $6 million.

Today, just as Pulitzer publicly recognized those who gave to his campaign, contributors to the Statue of Liberty Museum crowdfunding campaign will be acknowledged by the Foundation in a variety of ways, including via social media.

Based on contribution levels, supporters can select from a variety of perks that will be unveiled throughout the campaign, beginning with a limited edition medallion fashioned especially for this “For Lady Liberty” crowdfunding campaign.

Donors Honored in the Museum:

Inspired by the American flag, the museum’s Liberty Star Mural features 50 sculpted stars designed by French-American artist Anh Duong. The stars are offset by the original hand-forged iron armature bars that supported the interior of the Statue of Liberty for her first 100 years. Designed by Gustave Eiffel, these unique pieces were preserved from the Statue’s 1986 centennial restoration.

Those giving the symbolic donation of $18.86 or more will be collectively recognized with one of the stars, the Founders Star, as well as have their name permanently recorded in the Founders Registry, a digital donor list on display in the museum and on the museum’s website.

About the Museum:

The new 26,000-square-foot museum was designed by architecture firm FXCollaborative with exhibitions created by experience design firm ESI Design. The structure is being built by Phelps Construction Group. Access to the museum will be free with purchase of a ferry ticket to visit Liberty Island and Ellis Island.

Kimora Lee Simmons Joins The Unmentionables to Aid Refugees in Greece

Athens, Greece, June 20th, 2018: In an impassioned show of support for today’s World Refugee Day, fashion designer, entrepreneur and philanthropist Kimora Lee Simmons and her family are on the ground in Greece with international nonprofit The Unmentionables working with refugees, listening to their stories and learning what can be done to help this vulnerable population. In April of this year, Simmons was named Global Ambassador to The Unmentionables, and together with her family she is helping protect refugees from exploitation and trafficking. Coupled with her business acumen and passion for empowering others, she has emerged as a powerful voice for human rights via her desire to bring awareness to the annual World Refugee Day on Wednesday, June 20th.

Simmons and her family are taking a hands-on approach to giving, dedicating time this summer to migrant and refugee families on behalf of The Unmentionables, who provide training, supplies and education to the refugee community in Greece. Through funds raised on 2017’s Giving Tuesday and a generous personal donation from Simmons, a new resource center for refugees in Athens, Greece was opened earlier this year. Simmons and her family will work from the center and along the migrant path, providing safe and consistent access to basic, important intimate health products as well as sexual health and reproductive education and care to refugees.

According to the International Rescue Committee, Greece, a popular European entry point to migrants escaping perilous conditions in the Middle East and sub-Saharan Africa, currently hosts approximately 50,000 refugees. Earlier this year, United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), expressed grave concerns for the safety of women and children in what are known as “hotspots” on Greece’s islands — specifically focusing on overcrowding and lack of hygiene and sanitation. Five camps on Greek islands close to the Turkish coast have surpassed double their capacity as reported by Public Radio International in May 2018. UNICEF warned that in 2017, over 1,800 unaccompanied children were without proper shelter and care in Greece alone. The number of children arriving separated from their families is unprecedented, and currently more than 75% of migrant and refugee children trying to reach Europe via the Central Mediterranean route face appalling levels of sexual abuse, exploitation and trafficking. EU border agency, Frontex, has reported that human trafficking has been on the rise over the past few years (April 2018, ANSA). Human trafficking is prevalent for refugees, especially on the Central Mediterranean route according to an IOM report— 76% of male and 67% of female respondents answered “yes” to at least one of four human trafficking indicators. The indicators include experience of physical violence, work without payment and imprisonment. 80% of males and 66% of females experienced physical violence of any sort during their journey, while 64% of male and 56% of female were held against their will (2017, IOM).

Trafficking and sexual exploitation is not just limited to girls. Although adolescent boys comprise a substantial majority of the population of unaccompanied and separated children, they are rarely the focus of policy discussions and are consistently left out of gender-based violence prevention and response efforts (2018, PLoS Med). The majority of unaccompanied minors in Greece particularly are boys between ages 14-17, stranded and awaiting decisions on asylum and processing, without adequate shelter or ways to generate income. As a result of increasingly dire circumstances, sexual exploitation of minors is rapidly increasing everywhere from encampments to public spaces, where young boys desperate to survive are exploited by older men for payment.

“It’s incredibly important to me to expose this global crisis and bring attention to the level of deep, humanitarian need that exists to support persecuted people around the world,” comments Simmons. “I am deeply grateful to support World Refugee Day and that I can expose my own children to opportunities to make true, hands-on impact for the greater good. There are so many strife-torn families and separated children that need our collective protection as fellow humans to ensure their safety – how can we turn a blind eye? These kids look a lot like mine – they are young, hopeful, beautiful souls.” World Refugee Day, founded by the UN and held annually every June 20th, was designed to spotlight the plight of migrant refugees fleeing for their lives. A staggering 65.6 million people around the world have been forced from home, and among them are nearly 22.5 million refugees, over half of whom are under the age of 18. Nearly 20 people are forcibly displaced every minute as a result of conflict or persecution across our world (UNHCR).

Simmons’ partnership with The Unmentionables initially began in 2017, and her role in the organization has steadily grown. She will further her philanthropic commitment to this cause throughout the year, dedicating fundraising efforts to further the impact of the humanitarian global aid The Unmentionables provides to those most in need. Along with her unwavering commitment, Simmons will continue to advocate for refugees at risk of sexual exploitation and human trafficking.

Jaguar, 360 magazine

Jaguar XF Sportbrake

Thursday 14 June 2018, UK: Jose Mourinho surprised a group of schoolchildren with a special lesson before departing for the World Cup.

Mourinho was a secondary school PE teacher for five years before embarking on his record-breaking football management career. He arrived at Bishop Gilpin Church of England Primary School in a Jaguar XF Sportbrake full of brand new football equipment, which he donated to the children as part of an inspiring afternoon in class.

“Inside me there is always a teacher. Coming back to school as a kid; or a teacher brings back a lot of special memories. You create your own identity; and develop your own personality and principles.  It is the period you most enjoy in life.”

Mourinho was confronted by a star-struck group of children, who interrogated him about his favourite school memories, Father’s Day; and the naughtiest players he works with. One cheeky pupil even asked the football manager to make a sponsorship donation for his school marathon.

“My life is full of memories with my father – his name was also Jose – and being a father is the best job.  Even if my job doesn’t allow me to see my children every day, on Father’s Day; we’ll have a special lunch or dinner if we can,” added Mourinho ahead of Father’s Day in the UK on Sunday.

Speaking before he departs for a week in Russia, Mourinho was optimistic about England’s chances.

“England have a good group of young, experienced players. All of them play in the best domestic competition in the world; and have experience of playing in the Champions League. So yes, I think they can do it.”

Mourinho was coy about the chances of pre-tournament favourites- France, Brazil, Germany and Argentina– but he emphasised the importance of teams as well as great individuals.

“They have good squads but good squads do not always make good teams. Sometimes not so special squads, in theory, can make better teams. For example, Portugal in the Euros had far from the best squad but they did it.”

Mourinho was part of the launch of the Jaguar XF Sportbrake in 2017 when he helped with Andy Murray’s first-ever replica Wimbledon trophy tour.

The Jaguar XF Sportbrake is an award-winning saloon that delivers a compelling combination of design, driving dynamics and advanced technologies. The dynamic estate’s innovations include an intuitive gesture-controlled sunblind for the Sportbrake’s super-sized, full-length, panoramic roof, Driver Condition Monitoring to detect signs of tiredness after an active day and a waterproof Activity Key you can wear while playing sport.

The Jaguar XF Sportbrake is available from £36,545. Check it out at Jaguarusa.com or on Instagram at Jaguar USA Instagram

Since its founding in 1982, Komen has funded more than $956 million in research and provided more than $2.1 billion in funding to screening, education, treatment and psychosocial support programs, serving millions of people in 60 countries worldwide. Komen was founded by Nancy G. Brinker, who promised her sister, Susan G. Komen, that she would end the disease that claimed Suzy’s life. That promise has become Komen’s promise to all people facing breast cancer. Visit komen.org or call 1-877 GO KOMEN. Connect with us on social at ww5.komen.org/social.
