The foundation of the Pivotal Plays campaign is all about showcasing the often-unsung heroes who have performed amazing things that may have been overlooked.
Much like athletes whose actions are vitally important to the outcome of a game – though aren’t getting the recognition they deserve -- Pivotal Plays are all about finding stories of achievement, progress and the things that define our every day.
Whether it is something that occurs in the community, on the playing field in sports, in business or in government, the Pivotal Plays program is about giving credit where credit is due. We want to recognize the individuals, groups, teams and organizations that perform those achievements and bring them to light.
Erik Ayers, Co-Founder of the Pivotal Plays Campaign, discusses why uncovering and recognizing these Pivotal Plays is paramount to the campaign itself.
In 2005, Tom Deierlein, CEO of Thundercat, was a U.S. Army Major serving in Operation Iraqi Freedom. During this time, he undertook a philanthropic effort in Iraq where organized donations of vitamins and other supplies to the poorest in Sadr City, Iraq.
While on duty, Tom was shot by a sniper, which made it difficult to hand out donations to the children as he recovered. Though his friends and extended network established a foundation to keep the donations going, which ultimately raised more than $120,000.

Sometimes the best business ideas come from bad personal experiences. When Derek Pacqué was a senior at Indiana University, he had his $300 coat stolen at a nightclub, which did not have a viable coat check area.
He quickly realized that most bars and nightclubs don’t have coat check services, and decided to fill this need by launching a company that provides collapsible coat check kiosks. Pacqué‘s new company, called Hoosier Coat Check, initially charged $2 to $3 per coat and paid 10 and 30 percent of its revenue to the venues. In the first six months, the company earned $50,000.
Fast-forward to three years later, and Pacqué rebranded the company as CoatChex, which also offers a mobile app that uses QR codes as an alternative to the all-too-easy-to lose coat check tickets.
Following is an exclusive podcast with Derek.

What Does Having A Life Threatening Illness /Disease Force A Person To Challenge, Learn And Overcome?
Debbie Berkelhammer (www.debbieberkelhammer.com ) is Author of the new book "Point of View: POV on Dying and Living." She is available to share her insight with your audience.
Debbie overcame a life threatening disease and hopes to help other in a similar situation emerge victorious as well.
Debbie Berkelhammer POV
· Once you are diagnosed with an illness or disease, who you are and your path is forever changed. It’s how you move forward that will define this new life.
· There are many challenges, these challenges are not just in the beginning of being diagnosed but rather each day moving forward, especially if you are diagnosed with an illness that could reoccur.
· I look at illness as steps to overcome, denial, fear, anger, weakness, aggression, hopelessness, acceptance, hopefulness, strength, faith, hope, truth and gratefulness and trust. Each one of these steps plays a role in your illness and how you move forward and live your life. But sometimes, losing footing happens and you have to start over with the steps and have the hope and strength to know you will get better.
· I have learned to accept my illness and that i can not live with "what if", i have to live with the thought I will. I will live, and I will thrive.

Dare not shrug off politics over the holidays. Events you can help shape are coming up as soon as early January.
If nothing else, you can help rattle some of that inside-the-DC-beltway smugness your congressman brought back home to the district.
In other news, CRomnibus has opened doors for some new immigrants. No, not the walkers from Central America. The Syriian refugees the Obama adminsitration plays to fly in and resettle here. How many knew CRomnibus contained funding to resettle Syrian refugees?
And what's up with Obama's surprise announcment about normalixzing relations with Cuba? If he gets his way, how many of Castro's revolutionary guard will our president invite to immigrate as well? How many student viisas will be issued, helping deepen the Marxist bench already in place on our college and universtiy campuses?
This week's Friday Don and Doug will also focus on the increasingly unsettled international financial picture. It's not just Russia's economy going down the tubes. You might be surprised to hear who else has taken hits in recent days.
