8th LARGEST U.S. CHARITY ANNOUNCES NEW PRESIDENT FOR TAMPA BAY OFFICE

NATIONAL CHRISTIAN FOUNDATION (NCF) TAMPA BAY PROMOTES RELATIONSHIP MANAGER AND VETERAN MARINE, ANDREW PRILLIMAN, TO LOCAL AFFILIATE OFFICE PRESIDENT

NCF is known for offering some of the most advanced charitable gift planning solutions and expertise in the country. If we can encourage our community to embrace generosity, we can transform our city.”

— Andrew Prilliman, President & CEO of NCF

TAMPA, FL, USA, December 4, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The National Christian Foundation (NCF) Tampa Bay has promoted Executive Vice President, Andrew Prilliman, to President and CEO of the Tampa Bay affiliate office. Mr. Prilliman will continue to serve local families and business owners in implementing innovative, tax efficient gifting solutions in addition to overseeing the organization’s operations in accordance with the vision and mission of NCF’s National headquarters in Atlanta.

Mr. Prilliman says, “While NCF is known for offering some of the most advanced charitable gift planning solutions and expertise in the country (the “HOW” of giving), our real passion is serving our givers and partners in the “WHY” of giving. Why do you give? What are your passions? What organizations are you considering supporting through NCF and WHY? If we can encourage families and business owners in our local communities to embrace generosity, we can transform our cities and the world. I’ve yet to meet an unhappy generous person!”

Prilliman joined NCF Tampa Bay in 2009 and over those 9 years the non-profit has grown from a small community foundation, facilitating around $3.5 Million in annual contributions to an organization that will facilitate over $60 Million in giving in 2018 to impact charitable causes. The local office has surpassed $400 Million in cumulative giving in the Tampa market since their inception in 2005 and is expected to hit $500 Million within the next year. A large portion of this giving has come from gifts of appreciated non-liquid assets – NCF’s expertise.

On a national level NCF has granted out over $10 Billion to charity, has facilitated over $13 Billion in gifts from givers and has supported over 55,000 charities.

Bob Collins, former NCF Tampa Bay President, and current Chief Strategy Officer at the NCF National Office says, “Andrew has excelled as a senior leader of the NCF Tampa Bay team for almost 10 years. We are confident that he will accelerate NCF’s growth and boost the impact of innumerable charities in the Tampa Bay area.”

BACKGROUND

Andrew Prilliman grew up in Zephyrhills, a small town just outside of Tampa, FL. He joined the U.S. Marine Corps out of high school and graduated from Parris Island Boot Camp as his unit’s Honor Graduate. In 2003, Andrew was in a turret behind a .50cal machine gun as part of the initial invasion into Iraq during Operation Iraqi Freedom. His unit was awarded a Presidential Unit Citation (PUC) for “extraordinary heroism and outstanding performance in action against enemy forces in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom.” He was honorably discharged as a Platoon Sergeant.

While in the Marine Corps, Andrew earned a degree from the University of South Florida’s College of Business and went to work as an M&A advisor in the Tampa Bay area. His background in facilitating M&A transactions and working with business owners made for a great transition into his next roll as a Relationship Manager with the NCF Tampa Bay where he has worked with local families to simplify their giving and maximize the impact of their gifts to charity.

In 2012 Andrew launched NCF Outdoors, an initiative designed to strengthen relationships with existing NCF givers, develop new relationships with future givers and inspire and encourage individuals to challenge themselves in the area of giving through unforgettable outdoor experiences in God’s creation.

Andrew has helped start and operate several businesses, was a partner in a private equity group, serves on multiple non-profit boards, participates regularly in foreign mission work and is most proud of being a husband and father to his wife Ryann and son Colt.

GPI Defense and Klein ISD Police Department Ensure Kids Have a Merry Christmas

Klein ISD Police Department Holiday Heroes

GPI Defense

Thanks to the Holiday Heroes program, 50 students "in need" will receive a holiday experience they won't soon forget.

At GPI Defense, two of our core values are related to family and focusing on making a difference in the local community. It’s not just something we do, it’s who we are.”

— Troy Skeen, CEO, GPI Defense.

SPRING, TX, UNITED STATES, December 3, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — GPI Defense has partnered with the Klein ISD Police Department for their annual Holiday Heroes program. The program takes place throughout the month of December and will ensure at least 50 “in need” Klein ISD students get to have Christmas this year.

Each student is partnered with their very own police officer, and then they board a bus that takes them all to dinner. After dinner, they get back on the bus and are taken to a local retailer, where they are given a minimum of $125 to shop with. The officers walk with the students, bond with them, and help the students shop.

“Often times, the kids shop for their family members and we have to encourage them to shop for themselves also,” says Chief David Kimberly.

During the holiday season, many families are on the verge of homelessness and are faced with a decision: pay rent or buy gifts.

According to a recent poll, nearly 7 in 10 people in the United States would give up buying gifts during the holiday season because it would allow them to save money. Furthermore, it would give them more time with loved ones.

“At GPI Defense, two of our core values are related to family and focusing on making a difference in the local community. It’s not just something we do, it’s who we are,” adds GPI Defense CEO, Troy Skeen.

GPI Defense is a veteran owned & operated security company based in Spring, TX that works very closely with local police departments, and specializes in both Executive Protection and Crisis Response services. GPI Defense was founded in 2012 by Troy Skeen.

Dr. Theresa Schmidt of Educise® to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

NEWBURY, NEW HAMPSHIRE, UNITED STATES, December 3, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Everyone wants to win, to be on top of the game. What do you do when injury or disease and pain throw up roadblocks in the game of life, and medicine provides limited results? 59 million Americans spending $30 billion a year on integrative healing approaches may have an idea.

“Every great athlete visualizes the game before they go into the competition,” says Dr. Schmidt. “They're using a subconscious, metaphysical perspective. You can move beyond the physical and access your superconscious, the spiritual power inside.” Integrative healing shows great promise in achieving results.

Physical therapy teaches the body new motor pathways in through repetition of specific exercises and movements. According Dr. Theresa Schmidt, our subconscious can be retrained in much the same way through “metaphysical therapy”.

Dr. Theresa A. Schmidt is a holistic metaphysical therapist, hypnotherapist, interfaith minister and founder of Educise®, where she combines traditional medicine with spiritual healing practices to promote an integrative approach to health and wellness. Dr. Schmidt empowers her clients to manifest the positive results they deserve.

“Metaphysical simply means ‘beyond the physical,’ says Dr. Schmidt. “It’s the spiritual side of things that we can't ordinarily see, but there are some practices to help people to understand and work directly with this so-called unseen world.”

A board-certified specialist in orthopedic physical therapy, Dr. Schmidt has over 30 years of experience treating complex diagnoses, injuries and pain syndromes.

“I learned from observing with patients and clients over the years that there is so much more to their pain and disease than the physical process that created the dysfunction they're suffering from,” says Dr. Schmidt. “When I combined the best of eastern medicine with western medicine, the results were extraordinary.”

Dr. Schmidt helps her clients access the superconscious “metaphysical” mind through gentle, evidence-based processes such as: mindfulness, meditation, hypnosis, Reiki and therapeutic touch. Dr. Schmidt works primarily with individuals who suffer from chronic pain and musculoskeletal problems. These are people who have already been to several other therapists, doctors, chiropractors, healers with limited results.

“I help people connect to that learning inside, going beyond the physical stress, to help them understand the energy, the emotions and limiting beliefs behind their pain,” says Dr. Schmidt. “How can we change the energy in our body, raise our vibration, change our stress into something more powerful, into action. You need to connect with what your truth is inside, the underlying issues, to manifest breakthroughs.”

Stress makes us feel alive; it connects us with ourselves and protects us. Stress is a good thing, but when it becomes overwhelming, physical problems, pain, and dis-ease develop. Dr. Schmidt helps people reprogram un-resourceful responses using gentle touch Reiki, hypnotic induction, movement, and vibrational energy balancing to alter focus, change physiology, and give the brain a fresh perspective.

“We have an emerging body of evidence in National Institute of Health research that integrative medicine and spiritual wellness practices work,” says Dr. Schmidt. “It's exciting that so many people are engaging in these practices and watching their lives change dramatically.”

CUTV News Radio will feature Dr. Theresa Schmidt in an interview with Jim Masters on December 5th at 10am EST.

Listen to the show on BlogTalkRadio.

For Andover, MA resident Dan Gibson, Oasis of Peace Village is a continuing cause

CEO of National Loss Investigators recently returned from Kenya with renewed passion to support the Kenyan orphans who have contracted AIDS

While great strides have been made in the battle against HIV, Kenya still has the fourth largest epidemic in the world. As of 2015, 660,000 children were recorded as being orphaned by AIDS.””

— Daniel P. Gibson

ANDOVER, MA, USA, November 30, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — For Andover resident Daniel P. Gibson, a recent fundraiser to help support An Orphan's Dream was a big, important step along a continuing road – a road to provide care for the young AIDS orphans at the Oasis of Peace Village in Kenya.

Gibson, Chief Executive Officer of National Loss Investigations (http:/nliclaim.com) in Burlington, is a champion of the Oasis of Peace Village in Embu, Kenya. As a founding member and Vice President of the nonprofit An Orphan’s Dream, the organization which raises funds to support the mission of Oasis of Peace, Gibson has had the occasion to see firsthand the work that the organization does.

He recently returned from a trip to Kenya, where he met with the organization’s founders and visited with the orphans. Seeing firsthand the challenges that these young orphans face has given Gibson a renewed passion to support the orphanage. He was one of the organizers of a recent fundraiser held at the Red Parrot Restaurant in Hull, which was attended by more than 100 people on November 18.

Gibson was joined by Oasis of Peace founder Virginia Burbank, who traveled from Kenya to help with the Hull fundraiser.

She was joined by Symon Maringa of Dracut, president of the U.S. fundraising organization, “An Orphan’s Dream.” In fact, the land on which the orphanage is built has been in the Maringa family for more than 40 years.

Gibson said, “We welcome children at the Oasis of Peace orphanage following the loss of a parent or caretaker. The reasons behind the loss are AIDS, extreme poverty, and violence. Unfortunately, the trauma of such a loss is only further magnified by the circumstances surrounding it, which too often are witnessed first-hand by the child.”

He said, “While great strides have been made in the battle against HIV, Kenya still has the fourth largest epidemic in the world. As of 2015, 660,000 children were recorded as being orphaned by AIDS.”

Gibson said that the team he works with includes “the best people in the world.” He said, “This is a selfless group of volunteers all committed to making a difference, and it’s such a privilege to be part of this effort.”

The fundraiser on November 18 raised more than $12,000, making it one of the most successful of the eight fundraisers that have been held.

An Orphan’s Dream is a non-profit organization. For more information, please visit the website at anorphansdream.org. or call Kris Richards at 339.788.0384.

The Scientology choir performing in downtown Clearwater outside the Scientology Information Center

CLEARWATER, FL, US, November 29, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — On Saturday December 1st, the Scientology Information Center will host a different kind of “miracle” during the City of Clearwater’s Miracle on Cleveland Street festival. Starting at 6pm children and their parents can enjoy old-fashioned caroling together. A reception will be held from 5-10pm.

The Church of Scientology Choir will sing traditional Holiday carols on the steps of the Information Center in Victorian-style costumes. The performers will also stroll along Cleveland Street before the concert downtown and will resume performing in the Information Center once the concert starts. Guests are welcome to sing along.

Holiday treats, including hot chocolate, will be provided at the reception for drop-in visitors and those interested in learning about Scientology.

The Info Center hosts a gallery of informational panels and a multitude of videos on display covering the beliefs of Scientology, Churches around the world and about the life and history of Scientology’s founder, Mr. L. Ron Hubbard, and more.

“Christmas trees and modern day caroling emerged during the Victorian era,” said Information Center Manager Amber Skjelset. “The word ‘carol’ actually means ‘dance or a song of praise and joy.’ Thus it’s apt that we continue this joyful tradition of celebrating the Holidays through song during this holiday season.”

Continuing to celebrate the season, on December 7th, the Scientology Information Center will host a Holiday Concert with Ms. Joanie Sigal from Broadway and Beyond who will help ring in the holiday season with an eclectic mix of favorites from Broadway to romantic ballads, pop to blues with a selection of well-loved holiday favorites.

SL Tamils are Inviting the U.S. to Save them from Chinese Invasion; the US Should Consider for Mutual Interest of Both

Tamils in Sri Lanka with US flag and Portrait of POTUS

Tamils are calling for US help

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, USA, November 29, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — SL Tamils are Inviting the U.S. to Save them from Chinese Invasion; the United States Should Consider this for Mutual Interest of Tamils and Americans

First of all, India does not have guts to do anything about the Sri Lankan crisis or a Chinese invasion. They are a detached watcher of what is occurring in Sri Lanka.

Both major Sinhalese political parties are pro-Chinese. Clearly Ranil Wikramasinghe is the one who agreed to hand over the Hambantota port and signed a 99 years lease arrangement with China. Presently the Chinese are utilizing it as their maritime port.

As we all know, recently chosen Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa is a dear companion of China. The Chinese gave millions of dollars during 2015 presidential and parliamentary election. The Chinese aided Rajapaksa’s regime and helped him during the ethnic war against the Tamils.

The U.S. doesn't gain any benefits from Sri Lanka, but Sri Lanka utilizes the American capacity to escape from war crimes and for other trade advantage.

The Tamils are stating that Rajapaksa will receive billions of dollars from China to shroud the monetary inconveniences that Sri Lanka is confronting now. It is clear that with an additional ten years of ruling of Mr. Rajapaksa will borrow several billion dollars from China.

Tamils are terrified that Sri Lanka, in order to reimburse the loan, will give the Trincomalee harbor and numerous strategical areas in the Tamil inhibited region to China for an additional 99 years.

Tamils are strongly opposed to China’s invasion of their homeland. Any assistance given to the Tamils by the U.S. would help the international community freely use the Malakai Way sea lane in Indian Ocean. If proper a political solution is addressed, Tamils will have their territory either by US-style federalism, Bosnian-style federalism, or an autonomous nation.

Tamils do not have faith in current TNA leader Mr. Sampanthan and his assistant Mr. Sumanthiran. Many believe that these two politicians have sold out for positions and perks. In the last local election, the TNA lost its mandate from Tamils from 75% to 33%.

Now is an optimal time for the U.S. to come to Sri Lanka directly address this issue. Tamils are willing to sign 99 years of assurance from the US to shield them from China. The world will welcome the U.S. putting its full commitment into this worthy cause.

We would like to further reiterate that Tamils who have lost their loved ones, the parents of missing children and people who have lost their homes, ranches, and terrains to the Sinhalese army, are calling America to come to Sri Lanka and help.

YHR CHALLENGES 10,000 FLORIDA STUDENTS TO ADVOCATE FOR HUMAN RIGHTS ON 70TH ANNIVERSARY OF UNITED NATIONS DOCUMENT

Teenager in local school reads from What are Human Rights? booklet which is published by Youth for Human Rights (YHR) and is based on the 30 articles of the 1948 United Nations document, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR)

If 10,000 Florida youth learn their rights in just one month, imagine the impact that will have on the entire state!”

— Cristian Vargas, ED of United for Human Rights Florida chapter

CLEARWATER, FL, US, November 28, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — To mark the 70th Anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), December 10th, Youth for Human Rights (YHR) has launched a Florida-wide challenge to teach 10,000 youth in the month of December what their human rights are. UDHR is a United Nations benchmark document written in 1948 that proclaims what everyone’s rights are, no matter what color, background or belief.

“If 10,000 Florida youth learn their rights in just one month, imagine the impact that will have on the entire state!” said Mr. Cristian Vargas, the Executive Director for the Florida chapter of United for Human Rights. “We will therefore provide free educational materials, posters and banners on the 30 human rights articles in UDHR and encourage bright ideas from those who want to advocate for peace and tolerance among our youth.”

So far, YHR has directly challenged schools in Hillsborough, Broward, Miami-Dade, Orange, Osceola, Putnam and Polk counties to each educate at least 500 students in December on human rights. YHR has sent these schools free educational PSAs, booklets and lesson guides on the UDHR articles as well as posters and banners promoting human rights. One participating school will show the Youth for Human Rights 30 Rights, 30 Ads PSAs once a week to their 1000-student body. Another school with a population of 3,000 students will implement a reading of the 30 UDHR human rights during their daily announcements. And yet another school is organizing a human rights march on campus.

Since the opening of their Florida headquarters in downtown Clearwater on July 15, 2015, Youth for Human Rights Florida chapter has partnered with over 1000 educators, NGOs, public officials, church leaders and community activists, providing them with free human rights educational materials to teach human rights to their youth.

For more information about Youth Human Rights Florida, or to get involved in this challenge and receive free material, please contact Cristian at (727) 265-7479, or email him at Cristian@humanrights.com. Follow Youth for Human Rights Florida on social media to stay up to date! @UHRFlorida.

About Youth for Human Rights:
Youth for Human Rights was founded in 2001 by Dr. Mary Shuttleworth, a South African educator. Wishing to change her country’s apartheid culture, Dr. Shuttleworth aimed the objective of YHR towards teaching youth their 30 human rights as laid out in the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights document and thus inspire them to become advocates for peace and equality. YHR has since grown into an international movement with hundreds of chapters in over 100 nations, educating over 500 million people each year on their human rights.

Youth for Human Rights is one of eight humanitarian programs the Church of Scientology supports. It was Scientology Founder, L. Ron Hubbard who said, “Human rights must be made a fact, not an idealistic dream.”

With our What a Crock meals, there's no guesswork involved. There's an instruction card on each meal bag, so you know exactly how much cook time is required so you can have a scrumptious dinner at the end of your hectic day.

Typically, any chicken or vegetarian meal should cook for 4-6 hours, any pork meal should cook for 6-8 hours, and any beef meal should cook for 8-12 hours. All meals should be cooked on the low setting, and you can always call us if you have any questions.

What a Crock Bundle Portions

Our weekly meals are sold by the portion – meaning we can supply a bundle for one person, or even a family of six. Not sure how many portions your gift recipient will need? We've got you covered.

From two adults with light appetites to a family of four with two big eaters, we can help you decide the portions your recipient will need.

What a Crock Bundle Delivery

At What a Crock, we handle your meals with the utmost care and put as much thought into delivering them as we do with meal preparation.

All What a Crock meals are shipped in a Styrofoam cooler with dry ice to ensure that everything stays frozen for about 12 hours after delivery. That way, you don't have to worry about your gift arriving with any problems.

Located in the Brookhaven, Chestnut Hill, Garnet Valley, or Quakertown areas? You can always stop in and pick up your meal bundle, instead.
