Growing Global ‘Exposure’ with PWI
SNN is telling more and more stories on YouTube. But what’s getting social media subscribers to learn about our reports? A Chicago-based firm – called Project World Impact – is helping ‘tell Safe America’s stories.’ Thanks to PWI CEO Chris Lesner, Safe America was awarded a $90,000 in Google Ads this year – helping reach over 3,700 readers on our website and SNN since February!! “We’re proud of getting more viewers to see our work,” noted Safe America CEO Len Pagano. “Thanks to Chris and his non-profit liaison Austin, we’re reaching people worldwide – and will be able to do more good to SAVE LIVES through our safety (and educational) reports on SNN and our websites.” Pagano noted that Mr. Lesner is being invited to help reach out to global non-profits to attend our Sept. 9 ‘Fall Forum’ in New York City. That event – commemorating the 20th anniversary of 9/11 – will focus on how to improve disaster response in the next 5-10 years… while also growing our ‘WorldSafe Alliance’ (among non-profits). MAP International CEO Steve Stirling and Red Cross Disaster Response Director Earl Brown are among two non-profit executives that Safe America plans to involve this September. Others […]
A Salute to Knights of Columbus…
There are many organizations that focus on protecting lives. One of them is ‘Knights of Columbus,’ a Catholic group that has 2 million men as members. Thanks to its Senior Vice President, Mark McMullen, the Knights have discussed ways to aid Safe America’s programs… with a special interest in VET Tran. “As we plan to re-launch VET Tran this summer, we’re already thinking of how great Knights can be as a part of this,” noted Safe America CEO Len Pagano. “We thank Mark and others such as Transfiguration Parish’s Roger Heil and St. Joseph Parish’s Chris McHugh for their supporting this and looking how we can do good together.” In addition to Knights, Safe America is also outreaching to other church organizations. Thrivent Financial, which is a Christian financial company, has endorsed Safe America for donations. And, 360 Entertainment Executive TJ Hedges is also outreaching to Decatur-based Passion City Church (to also have Safe America’s HUMANS Care transportation used for human trafficking victims). “We’re proud of Mark, TJ and others like Roger and Chris who are offering help protect and save lives,” Pagano said. “Together, we look forward to helping re-launch our transportation programs – with COVID vaccinations protecting our […]
New Post-Covid Goal: Helping Other Non-Profits
How can non-profits recover from the COVID-19 ‘effect?’ That’s a topic the Safe America Foundation is evaluating with the WorldSafe Institute. Through leadership discussions, new Board member Jeff Jones has suggested establishing a ‘Donor Advised Fund’ (DAF). Mr. Jones, principal executive in Owenby Jones Wealth Management, LLC, discussed how millions of dollars can be raised via a WorldSafe Fund. Mr. Jones estimated that dozens of non-profits that need more income to survive – and do more good – could be aided. “Thanks to Jeff and Owenby Jones Wealth Management, LLC, we’ll seek to establish a new DAF this summer – and start fundraising this fall,” noted Chairman Len Pagano. “Helping recover from economic decline will help save non-profits – and save lives.” Safe America is also discussing with Project World Impact (PWI) on how this can be shared with 100 international and domestic non-profits who are PWI clients. “More conversations will evaluate what’s doable… and start our outreaching to non-profits,” Pagano noted. “We’re proud that our collaboration with others such as the American Red Cross, United Military Care, Knights of Columbus and YouthSpark may lead to more outreach – helping us ‘keep doing recovery’ and protecting lives.”
