Dear John/Deb et al:
HAPPY VALENTINE's DAY!
The Foundation For A Better Community For All (FABC)
lists the accounting for the VIP Ticket Sales.
Alma Martinez will provide the names of the Amigos VIP Ticket Holders.
25 VIP pairs of tickets sold at $50 / pair = $1250

Balance raised for FABC $350 (THANK YOU!)
The truly extraordinary and vital nature of the joint work
JFP/ABC4All will be doing together to bring
Global Humanitarian Relief (GHR) to the world,
as part of the partnership between the two which launches
officially after the Kenya Concert on 02/19/2011,
and in anticipation of the FIRST OF MANY future joint
Amigos / ABC4All / Jazz For Peace Foundation Concerts,
following the one scheduled already to be held
in Los Angeles on 04/27/2011,
please consider creating an opportunity for a special
PRE-CONCERT BY INVITATION ONLY
JFP PERFORMANCE for proposed PAID SPONSORS ONLY:
On this end, we are awaiting the timing for a teleconference
coordinated by Ryan Hawkins of Morgan Chase to discuss a
variety of issues, among which is included potential sponsorship
of these joint FABC / JFP efforts by J. P. Morgan Chase.
It is an understatement to mention how grateful everyone listed
among the cc's can be, given the thrust of our FABC/JFPF
collaborative efforts to create "The World of A Better Community For All."
It is appropriate, however, to acknowledge and commend the entire
Jazz For Peace Staff for leaving no stone unturned and for
creating an atmosphere of mutual cooperation and collaboration
which could not be smoother nor more efficient. How great is that!?
A needle in a haystack, for sure!
Respectfully and deeply gratefully,
The following is from the site for the World of A Better Community For All (ABC4All): http://trunity.net/woa/
Welcome to the World of A Better Community For All (ABC4All)
A Site on the Internet Dedicated to the Partnership between the

FORMULA FOR A BETTER WORLD:
JFPF + FABC = GHR

JAZZ KEYBOARDIST RICK DELLARATTA'S PERSPECTIVE ON JAZZ,
PEACE AND THE JAZZ FOR PEACE FOUNDATION'S UNIQUE WAY OF
SUPPORTING NONPROFITS / NGOs WORLDWIDE,
HELPING TO CREATE A BETTER WORLD:
"If you're going to go through life taking the things that fill your soul and throw them to the side and take monetary, capitalistic things that victimize others and ultimately don't fill your soul, then you're going to lead to destructive behavior as a species.
"There's humanitarian issues involved here, and when we fill our souls up with creativity, artistry and intelligence, things of that nature, we have a better shot at avoiding the behavior that leads to destruction."
By not acknowledging jazz as American's leading contribution to the world, DellaRatta says we are sending mixed messages to the world and to ourselves.
"It's been obvious to me that jazz is a music that brings enlightenment to our species. We need to raise our level of consciousness and then we can see past the need for violence and see that there's so much we can do together to make our existence greater. We have so much to offer each other."
Here is DellaRatta's Jazz for Peace poem:
I hear jazz for peace coming through the trees,
And in my heart it fills me like a celebration.
I see the light and I want to follow,
Inspired by the past contributions of
Those that came before and laid the groundwork
For us to build on in this universal language
That is a gift for all mankind.
And when we speak it,
People are enlightened by the creativity and artistry
That stands for peace and love and humanity
And intelligence that leads to reaching potential
That we have in our soul.
So we can raise our total conscience and
See that the gift of giving is our greatest privilege.
