Human Revolution KickStarter

Human Revolution KickStarter

Every once in a while an artist emerges that just touches that perfect place inside, Human is one of those artists. Backed by The Human Revolution, an impressive rotating cast of master musicians, Human has been leading the way for politically, socially, and ecologically charged performers and songwriters for over a decade. Guests and past members of the lineup have included: Jeff Pevar (Ray Charles, Crosby Stills and Nash, Jazz is Dead), Donny “Divino” Smith (Willie Nelson), Roger Fritz (Sheryl Crow, Shelby Lynn) “Uncle” Don Lopez (Willie Nelson, Willie K), Gene Parsons (The Byrds), David Mayfield (Cadillac Sky, Avett Brothers), Jessica Lea Mayfield, Alice Di Micele, Kailen Yong (Boulder Acoustic Society) and MC Radioactive (Spearhead) to name a few. The Human Revolution boasts an eclectic mix of styles with a definitive foundation in that roots-rock country style of music, we call it Mystic Americana. Songs transition gently from ecstatic dance beats to tearjerker ballads, from modern political rockers to positive roots reggae, carrying the audience on a journey which changes, often with the band, from show to show. Recently Human created a new song for Food for Life which is set to be released on his upcoming album. Help Human create his 7th studio album, Small Town; a beacon of consciousness for the love of Earth, and a testament to the power of peace. Your donation is a magnificent offering of the light inside you. Your gift will help produce, record and distribute the musical message of The Human Revolution. Together, we can show the world that love always prevails. Together we can show the world that music is the messenger of human change. VIDEO

Food for Life in Ecuador

Food for Life volunteers have served hot vegetarian meals to school children and impoverished families for over 20 years in this South American country. Ecuador is a representative democratic republic in South America, bordered by Colombia on the north, Peru on the east and south, and by the Pacific Ocean to the west. It is one of only two countries in South America, along with Chile, that do not have a border with Brazil. The country also includes the Galápagos Islands in the Pacific, about 1,000 kilometres (620 mi) west of the mainland. Recently, the FFL team visited some villages in Ecuador, where eager people waited patiently under tents to protect themselves from the blazing sun. As soon as the FFL van arrived, an announcement of their arrival went out over the public speaker system. The local neighbourhood church groups wearing yellow shirts, similar to FFL volunteers, began organising the gathering crowds and helping to set up distribution. While working under the hot tents, FFL volunteers perspired heavily serving the delicious lunch. However, “The satisfaction was reflected on the faces of everyone,” explains, volunteer Ekatma Das. “The people were so touched that we had gone out of our way to come to them with such delicious food. One lady told me, ‘We thought that no one cared anymore. Now we know differently. Thank you so much.’” Food for Life served hot rice with dhal, fried sweet dumplings and an aromatic vegetable curry.

Food for Life Global does not endorse any street collections

POTOMAC, MD USA — Food for Life Global, the headquarters for Food for Life projects around the world has a clear policy of NOT approving of any street solicitations for donations in the name of Food for Life. “Food for Life Global does not receive any funds through street solicitations,” says Global director, Paul Turner. “We abhor all street solicitations, for the simple reason that it is impossible to monitor and therefore presents an opportunity for exploitation by unscrupulous people.” Food for Life Global is a registered non-profit in the state of Maryland and receives support from the public through online donations at FFL.ORG, as well as through corporate donations and the help of supporters who raise funds through bake sales, etc. “It has come to our knowledge that there are people collecting donations on the street in the name of Food for Life, and that sometimes these people direct the public to the Food for Life Global web site as a way to prove their authenticity. I want to make it clear to the public, Food for Life Global does not receive any money from these street collections. Whenever I get a call from the public or an email asking about the authenticity of a particular person soliciting donations on behalf of Food for Life, I immediately tell them to report the person to the police if they are using the name Food for Life Global or Hare Krishna Food for Life, because such collectors are not authorised by Food for Life Global, and more than likely are not authorised by their own charity.” “It is a sad state of affairs when individuals try to take advantage of the good will of unsuspecting people. However, it happens in many parts of the world and is not exclusive to Food […]
