Elevate your game

Dear Friends,

As the holiday season is underway, this is the most popular time to reflect on your accomplishments in 2011 and begin thinking about your goals for 2012. Have I accomplished what I set out to do this year? Where am I with the resolutions declared at the beginning of the year? Many of us have achieved much more than we could’ve ever imagined while others may have more work to do. As we begin to close out 2011, continue to think about how you can still elevate your game to help redefine the game. It’s never too late! Please consider making Campus CEO and Black Faces in White Places a gift for the holidays.  Order here and stay connected to the campaign via our website (RedefineTheGame.com) in 2012.

But, above all, don’t just think about the goals you will set for yourself. A common denominator in each question above is the word ‘I’. Take time to also think about what you can do in 2012 to help others achieve their goals. In that spirit, please support my friends, Byron Hurt and Stephanie Clark.

First, award-winning filmmaker, Byron Hurt, is releasing his PBS documentary Soul Food Junkies in 2012. I am proudly supporting Bryon’s latest project as a “Head Chef” by telling family, friends, and colleagues about his campaign to raise funds for this important documentary.  Read more about his film project in Breakthrough and how you can pledge your support.

Second, I congratulate my friend, Stephanie Clark, author and founder of Project Single Moms Worldwide, Inc., who is a 2011 L’Oreal Paris Women of Worth Honoree.  Stephanie received $10,000 for her charity! An online public voting will determine which honoree’s charity will receive an additional $25,000 in support of their work. Results can be viewed online at womenofworth.com after December 12th. Stephanie will appear on CBS’ daytime talk show, ‘The Talk’, Friday, December 9th.  So tune in (check your local listings)!

On behalf of my entire family, I extend warm wishes to you and yours for a wonderful holiday season.

Peace and blessings,

Food for the Soul

Food traditions are hard to change, especially when they're passed on from generation to generation. In this PBS documentary, award-winning filmmaker Byron Hurt shares his journey to learn more about the African American cuisine known as soul food.

Byron’s goal is to release Soul Food Junkies in 2012 and in order to meet that goal he needs to raise completion funds of $25,000 by the end of December. He is already 76% of the way there!

Please visit the campaign via Kickstarter.com to pledge your support.

Happy Holidays!
