National Association for the Self-Employed Awards $12,000 in Education Scholarships

Since 1989, NASE Dependent Scholarship has Awarded More than $1.8 Million in Tuition Assistance

DALLAS, TX – As back to school season approaches and first year college students across the country prepare to pay rising costs of higher education tuition, the National Association for the Self-Employed (NASE), the nation’s leading advocate and resource for the self-employed and micro-business community, today announced the awarding of $12,000 in educational scholarships to four dependents of current NASE members.

The NASE Dependent Scholarship Program is an educational scholarship awarded to the dependent of NASE members to help ease the financial burden of tuition and other costs associated with attending college. This year, four winners were chose and each will receive $3,000 scholarships from the National Association for the Self-Employed.

“We are excited about helping defray the tuition costs of these four bright, young students continuing their secondary education,” said John Hearrell, NASE’s Vice President of Membership and Affiliate Programs. “With college costs on the rise, it is important that we support the academic endeavors of those interested in pursuing their education. Since 1989, we have awarded more than $1.8 million to our members through our NASE programs.”

This year’s NASE Dependent Scholarship winners are:

  • Dalton Hegeholz, Lincoln, Nebraska.  Dalton will be attending Nebraska Wesleyan University where he plans to major in Biochemistry.
  • Hope Tedrow, Gilbert, Arizona.  Hope will be attending Grand Canyon University where she plans to major in Psychology.
  • Kelly Langford, San Antonio, Texas.  Kelly will be attending The University of Texas at San Antonio where she plans to major in Nursing.
  • Siddhart Agarwal, Windham, New Hampshire.  Siddhart will be attending Tufts University where he plans to major in Biomedical Engineering.

Hearrell continued, “For the last twenty-five years, this scholarship has continued to help defray the costs and ease the burden for many of our self-employed members. Rising higher education costs continue to affect the bottom lines of all Americans, and for the self-employed and micro-business owner committed to operating a successful business, it can further strain both their family and business’ budgets.”

This award-winning program is open to legal dependents of NASE Members, ages 16-24. To apply, students need to be high school students or college undergraduates planning to enroll in college for the upcoming fall semester. Consideration is based upon:

  • Leadership abilities

Denver Car Donation Launches Vehicle Donation Service for Veterans

Denver Car Donation launches Vehicle Donation Service to help support veterans and provide them a dignified existence.

Veteran Car Donations, the car donation service committed to welfare of U.S. military servicemen and servicewomen, has launched a Vehicle Donation website for providing assistance to veterans. The service is aimed at bridging the gap in service which the government cannot provide because of inherent limitations.

“We are aware that the government, despite their best efforts, cannot be expected to provide assistance to every veteran who has served the country,” says the spokesperson for the Denver Car Donation. “We want to bridge this gap to ensure that our heroes are taken care of. Our Vehicle Donation Service can help you make a difference in the life of U.S veterans significantly.”

Anyone can donate a car in Denver towards this extremely noble cause through VeteranCarDonations.com. They have long years of experience, partnerships, and collaborations as well as going beyond merely assisting these war veterans. They empower veterans using vehicle donations which help in transforming the lives of veterans and their families.

According to the spokesperson, approximately 700,000 service men and women will soon be among the country’s unemployed as the United States pulls out from various overseas peacekeeping assignments. There is an urgent need to act fast to make sure these veterans enjoy a quality life and do not languish in the streets, begging for basic needs of life such as food, clothing, shelter and medical care even after having responded unselfishly to the call of national duty.

Car owners from Denver can contribute to this huge humanitarian cause by contacting this Denver Car Donation at (888) 537-9790 or going on the website. Veteran Car Donations has made the process of donating a car in Denver easy, quick and simple. Donors just have to provide some basic information like the make and model of their car, their contact details and the physical location of the car.

Everything else is handled by the Vehicle Donation Service including arranging a towing service to pick up the car and delivering all the necessary paperwork the donor may need for the purpose of filing for tax benefits.

The donation service accepts all kinds of vehicles and of any condition, regardless of whether it’s running or has been kept idle for years. They accept cars, vans, trucks, SUVs, and even boats, jet skis, RVs, & much more. Denver car owners can even donate multiple vehicles to this noble cause if they have more than one to spare.

According to the spokesperson, Veteran Car Donations has reached 60 per cent of their goal. “We need your help and support to those who have helped us protect our freedom. By participating in our vehicle donation effort, we can make the leap from 60 per cent to 100 per cent.”

Denver Car Donation is focused on ensuring that returning warriors of the country will have access to a quality life. They also make sure that survivors of those who have sacrificed their life for national duty are also cared for.

How Going Back To School With Paw Prints Learning Will Skyrocket Confidence

As millions prepare to go back-to-school this fall, it’s exciting to hear how “Paw Prints Learning” handwriting curriculum will be implemented coast-to-coast to help children with special needs and kids struggling with this critical life skill. This unique program has been proven to transform children’s lives and skyrocket confidence like 7-year-old Ari in this story.

Paw Prints Learning includes three handwriting curriculum books that can be used by teachers in a school, by an Occupational Therapist and/or by parents teaching their children at home. Co-Authors Sarah Appleman and Alissa Alongi are currently helping teachers get ready to implement this program when they go back-to-school. They are also donating books to the National Lekotek Center (non-profit) for their AblePlay library this fall.

Occupational Therapist Sarah Appleman came up with the idea of “Paw Prints Learning” after seeing children with special needs respond positively to animals. Working with OT and childhood educator Alissa Alongi, Sarah developed a program that includes therapeutic devised multi-sensory activities that help children succeed in many ways.

The “Paw Prints Learning” curriculum is now seeing major breakthroughs for pre-k and kindergarten students, along with those with learning disabilities using art, art projects and animals. The parent feedback and Ari’s story below is heartwarming:

During a recent interview, Alysa Kaplan, shared how her son’s life transformed, “Sarah implemented the Paw Prints Learning with my son Ari who was previously diagnosed with ADHD…and within two weeks he was doing things that I hadn’t seen him doing in those two years working with somebody else. He was writing his name. He was drawing. He was drawing pictures of people, which he was really proud of, and animals. He was doing all the things that the other kids were doing, and his confidence went thru the roof. I saw a completely different child in this time.”

When asked about Ari, Sarah shared these observations, “What’s really exciting for me as a therapist is that I watched Ari grow. In just a short period of time, in only a few weeks, he went from not being able to write or visually understand top and bottom and making his letters to being called on by the teacher and coming up in front of the entire class and writing on the board. His teachers smiled. I smiled, and his self-confidence just skyrocketed.”

In addition to parents, Occupational Therapists and teachers are getting ready to implement “Paw Prints Learning” handwriting program when they go back-to-school.

Pam Miscioscia, an OT from New York, who is incorporating the curriculum this fall, describes it this way, “Parents are excited to see something new and innovative, and because of their excitement, the kids are excited as well…This is the perfect fit to add to the current curriculum because not only is it fun and educational, but it fills a void that is not currently being taught in schools these days.”

We need more innovative ways to help children learn, and especially those with special needs. This creative use of art and animals to teach handwriting and social skills is groundbreaking. What a great way to enhance our childhood education programs, and boost confidence in children!

Midnight Madness Returns To NYC Will Raise Funds For Good Shepherd Services Saturday, August 8, 2015

The charity hunt challenges the brightest minds in finance and other industries to an all-night marathon puzzle-solving contest through New York City to raise money for Good Shepherd Services

Over 200 participants will tackle a game which, in the past, has had them playing mini golf with lasers, lighting up skyscraper spires, and planning the seating chart for Kevin Bacon’s wedding, to beat the competition and demonstrate superhuman ingenuity and resourcefulness

The last Midnight Madness event in 2013 raised $3 million dollars for Good Shepherd Services

NEW YORK, NY, JULY 29, 2015Midnight Madness, an urban puzzle-solving contest experience that raises money for Good Shepherd Services, returns to New York City this August.

Over 200 of the brightest minds in finance and other industries will compete in the elaborate scavenger hunt, which, in the past, has required knowledge of everything from military alphabets, circuit wiring, ’80s songs and video games, to New York historical locations.

Citi, Credit Suisse, Goldman Sachs, PDT Partners, and SECOR Asset Management all have returning teams. Cantab Capital Partners, Global Atlantic, and Pine River Capital Management, previous participants on the Goldman Sachs teams, return this year to compete for their own organizations. Joining for the first time are teams from Bloomberg, Ernst & Young, KPMG and other financial and tech institutions.

Challenge creators, Mat Laibowitz, PhD and Dan Michaelson, have designed a series of “cleverly camouflaged, incredibly ingenious and devilishly difficult puzzles” — the answers to which indicate the location of the next puzzle, and so on, until the finish line. Laibowitz is the founder of Futuruption, whose mission is to design, develop, and deploy engaging experiences in the forms of augmented environments, reactive architecture, interactive installations, and unique products. Michaelson is one of the founders of Linked by Air, a graphic design partnership where design and technology are intertwined inventive processes, often focused on the production of public space, both in the world and online.

The last Midnight Madness event, in 2013, raised $3 million for Good Shepherd Services through sponsorship of the 30 teams that competed. Good Shepherd Services is a nonprofit that helps young people growing up in poverty find opportunities for success. It operates over 80 programs, which help nearly 30,000 youth and family members in struggling neighborhoods throughout New York City.

This year’s event will help underwrite the cost of Good Shepherd Services’ construction of a new state-of-the art community center in East New York. This new facility will serve 1,000 children, youth, and families each year through a range of programs and services that promote community development with a goal of contributing to the social capital, strength, and vibrancy of the whole neighborhood.

In-depth coverage of the 2013 event was provided by a New York Times reporter who was embedded with one of the teams. Additional coverage can be found in The Wall Street Journal, Quartz, ABC News, Bloomberg Business, and the Daily Mail.

Mat Laibowitz and Dan Michaelson, Midnight Madness creators

Specialty Food Association Honored for Hunger Relief Efforts

Foundation’s Work Recognized by ASAE for Giving Back across the U.S.

unnamed (2)

NEW YORK (July 30, 2015) – The Specialty Food Association has been awarded a Power of A Gold Award from the American Society of Association Executives for its work to help reduce hunger and increase food recovery via the grant making, education and industry events of its Specialty Food Foundation.

The Foundation, established in 2014, in its first year gave $250,000 in grants to support 14 innovative organizations in ten states that are working to address hunger and improve food recovery. They include Portland Fruit Tree Project in Portland, Ore., which harvests and distributes fruit from urban fruit trees that would otherwise go to waste and Move for Hunger, Neptune, N.J., which mobilizes the relocation industry to reduce food waste by picking up unwanted food during the moving process to deliver to food banks.

The Foundation has also created “Embrace Hunger Relief Week,” a program that links specialty food professionals to anti-hunger organizations with volunteer events that include re-packs of bulk produce donations and assembling grocery boxes to deploy to a network of local food pantries and high-need schools.

“The Foundation grew out of the Specialty Food Association’s efforts to make a difference amid continuing hunger and food waste in the U.S.,” says Ron Tanner, vice president of philanthropy, government and industry relations for the Association. “We strive to help raise awareness among our members, industry partners and in the communities where our members do business.”

ASAE’s Power of A (association) Awards, the industry’s highest honor, recognize the valuable contributions of the association community on the local, national and global level. The Power of A Awards reward outstanding accomplishments of associations and industry professionals for their efforts to enrich lives, create a competitive workforce, prepare society for the future, drive innovation and make a better world.

“Congratulations to the Specialty Food Association for helping make the world a better place,” said Hugh “Mac” Cannon, chair of the Power of A Awards Judging Committee. “Their program exemplifies how associations make a difference every day – not just to the industry or profession they represent, but to society at large.”

In addition to its foundation, the Specialty Food Association supports its long-established Fancy Food Show exhibitor donation program where exhibitors can opt to donate food at the end of the trade show to a partner charity. At the 2015 Summer Fancy Food Show, exhibitors donated 96,000 pounds of food. The association donates as well and has an internal team to organize employee volunteering and charity drives.

New amfAR Grants Accelerate Research Efforts to Eradicate HIV

Three research teams awarded $2 million each over four years to conduct basic, animal and clinical studies

NEW YORK, July 27, 2015 — amfAR, The Foundation for AIDS Research, announced that three research teams have been awarded $2 million each to pursue a range of strategies aimed at curing HIV. The new grants are part of amfAR’s $100M Countdown to a Cure initiative, launched last year with the aim of discovering the scientific basis for a cure by 2020. Each project is designed to tackle the major impediment to curing HIV, namely the persistence of the virus despite anti-HIV drugs.

“At $2 million each, these new grants represent the continued expansion of amfAR’s investments in research to find a cure for AIDS, and they are among the largest grants we have ever awarded. They are a reflection of our optimism around cure research and our collective determination to invest $100 million over the next five years in order to develop the scientific basis of a cure for this disease,” said amfAR Chief Executive Officer Kevin Robert Frost.

A team of researchers led by Dan Barouch, M.D., Ph.D., of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, Massachusetts, will investigate the ability of combinations of antibodies to specifically kill latently infected cells in the lab, in monkeys, and then in people. The researchers will test two promising antibodies alone and together, in combination with a newly described drug that can “shock” the virus out of latently infected cells and possibly enhance the ability of the antibodies to locate the infected cells.

Timothy Henrich, M.D., of the University of California, San Francisco, and his colleagues will pursue a novel intervention aimed at restoring normal immune function in people with HIV. The team will test whether the transplant drug, sirolimus, can increase the activity of beneficial components of the immune system while suppressing detrimental activity of other components. The team will thoroughly assess the drug’s activities before moving on to test the drug on persistent HIV reservoirs in people.

Using an approach that has already proved successful in cancer therapy, Sharon Lewin, FRACP, Ph.D., of the University of Melbourne, Australia, will explore whether drugs that block so-called immune checkpoints can also be effective against HIV. Researchers theorize that the immune system cannot eliminate infected cells because of immune checkpoints, a set of mechanisms that limit the duration of an immune response so that the immune system does not become exhausted. Dr. Lewin and her team will test two drugs, alone and together, for their ability to reverse immune exhaustion and restore the ability of the immune system to eliminate infected cells.

“These four-year grants are a departure for amfAR and an important pillar of our cure research strategy,” said Rowena Johnston, Ph.D., amfAR vice president and director of research. “They allow teams of leading researchers to take their ideas across the research continuum—from lab studies to human trials. We’ll be following their progress with great interest.”

About amfAR

amfAR, The Foundation for AIDS Research, is one of the world’s leading nonprofit organizations dedicated to the support of AIDS research, HIV prevention, treatment education, and the advocacy of sound AIDS-related public policy. Since 1985, amfAR has invested $415 million in its programs and has awarded grants to more than 3,300 research teams worldwide. Learn more about amfAR at www.amfar.org.

By the end of the five festival run, Toyota will make a donation to VH1 Save The Music for the organization to restore or implement a musical instrument program for an entire school.

“As a socially conscious company, Toyota is constantly searching for new and innovative ways to take action in the world around us,” says Steve Appelbaum, National Manager of Engagement Marketing, Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A. “We believe that music education enhances students’ lives by cultivating creativity and stimulating the self-confidence needed to fuel lifelong success. Toyota is thrilled to partner with VH1 Save the Music to invest in improving the quality of education in schools across the country.”
