    Margie Lopez Read, Donation art rebroadcast

    in Podcasting

    Margie Lopez Read, Donation art  rebroadcast


     


    Margie Lopez Read, artist and donating all the proceeds of her art


    Margie Lopez Read paintings, and or prints of paintings are traded for a check made out to a worthwhile organization that the buyer and Margie agree upon.


    I had the sheer joy to be part of the original show that Armando Sanchez did on his network I learned so much that I had to invite onto to my show.


    I found the idea of doing incredible artwork and then donating the purchase price back to non-profit, to be incredibly intriguing


    I did a bit of research on her web site www.margies-art.com and Facebook:  Donation Art, and discovering such art work as, Rosa-Big Sweetness and Sutter Buttes (both I could feel connection to) makes me believe this will be a great show and I really look forward to it


    "Art is life and not worth much unless it helps make the world just a little bit better in one way or another."
     
    Art has been important to Margie her whole life, influenced in large part by her grandmother Margie Cooper, who was an accomplished painter.  
     
    She states, "All of that is fun, but I want my art to do more. You see, I believe that art is at its best when it teaches, records a memory, tells a story, or provokes thought.  It is better still if it can be used to raise funds for worthwhile non-profit programs that improve the condition of our world." and” Please feel good about what you have done to make the world a better place and have joyous and peaceful times during this holiday season."


    Thanks to Armando Sanchez whose description I copied and who is also sponsoring this show along with Sedano media group

    Organ Donation and Transplantation

    in Health

    Every ten minutes another name is added to the national organ transplant waiting list. More than 120,000 men, women and children currently need lifesaving organ transplants. The United Network for Organ Sharing also reports that an average of 18 people die each day from a lack of available organs for transplant. Jessica Pearlman and Anthony Pugliese know what it’s like to be on that waiting list. They also know what it’s like to finally receive an organ that allows them to live another day. Emily Wiebke, Kathy Keller and Eileen Pearlman will share with us what it’s like to be the mother of a heart transplant recipient. With 90% of Americans saying they support donation but only 30% taking the essential steps to become a donor, this Episode focuses on answering questions about who needs organ donation, why it’s so important to donate organs and the difference organ donation can make in the lives of families.

    Ask Dr. Applewhite About the Potential of Genius and Mental Disability

    in Education

    Unfortunately, one of the most overlooked and devalued groups of people are those with disabilities. In the USA, the most progressive country in the world, there is still great disparity in the treatment and access to school and work opportunities for differently-abled persons, especially those with non-visible and mental disabilities.  We can openly discuss the disparity by our willingness to consider the potential of genius within every human being, regardless of the level of their abilities. Our special guest is Dr. Will Moreland, a military veteran and author of the critically acclaimed book Genius Potential.  He is known as  America's #1 Leadership Life Trainer and appears frequently on national television shows to share his insights on leadership, personal development and current events. Your donation of at least $5 or more will support our radio broadcasts, and allow us to continue helping Adult Learners/Students and Veterans with disabilities reach their education and workforce goals? Visit http://whiteappleinstitute.org and click on DONATE. Click on RADIO to listen to episodes of the Ask Dr. Applewhite ™ Radio Talk Show anytime 24/7.
