    #GivingTuesday Episode / Art of the Evolution with guest Wes Days

    in Culture

    Tuesday, December 2nd, 2014 is celebrated worldwide as #GivingTuesday, a day where charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world come together for the purpose of celebrating generosity and giving. Planet Restoration will do its part during our weekly "PR 13:20" show to celebrate giving by highlighting a few very special initiatives including Vancouver, BC's Project Blue Hands Society, Los Angeles' Playing For Change Foundation, and Washington, D.C.'s One Common Unity.

    Also, our guest will be Wes Days, musical artist, teacher, and U.S. expat now residing in Salvador, Bahia, Brazil with his beautiful family. His life has taken him on a phenomenal journey to several countries around the world, including a 4-year journey on a school bus from Washington, D.C. to Costa Rica, with a community of artists and musicians. For several years, he's been engaged in peace and reconciliation initiatives, having worked with Seeds of Peace and One Common Unity, and is now making another evolutionary leap, soon moving from Salvador, Bahia to Rio de Janeiro, where he's continuing his life path and purpose of engaging communities via the arts and transformative culture, bringing the power of creative change where its needed most.

    In the spirit of #GivingTuesday, we encourage people to visit Planet Restoration's online store at http://www.PlanetRestoration.info/#Store and purchase the #EraseEbola and #StandUPforAfrica t-shirts. Proceeds from these sales benefit the work of EmergencyUSA in their efforts to stop the spread of Ebola in Sierra Leone.

    in Entertainment


    Elva NelsonHayes is an author, artist, and a teacher. The UNNAMED, her freshman project, is an autobionovel, a work of urban fiction that reads like an autobiography. The UNNAMED chronicles Opal’s journey as she struggles to overcome identity issues stemming from being improperly named at birth by her feuding teenage parents. The story takes you on an emotional ride with Opal. When you meet her she is a young girl from very humble beginnings, overwhelmed with the realization of the entire spectrum of negative stigma assigned to children, such as her, who are born in the projects and born out of wedlock. 
    Through her journeys for self-acceptance and self-empowerment; you will also see the teenage parents’ characters grow as the story develops. The UNNAMED opens in the 69th village projects of the author’s hometown Oakland, California. It’s the summer of 1965. The story is captivating and riveting from beginning to end. 

    Celia Laratte was born in October 1956 in the city of Salvador in Bahia, Brazil. In 1976, at the age of twenty, she moved to the United States. She decided to leave her country because she was abused physically and psychologically at the time. She is now married and a mother of two, living in the city of New York and working at Rockland Psychiatric Center and Rockland County Mental Health Association, helping people with mental disabilities for 28 years.
