NPR ran a story yesterday about the recent spike in cholera cases in Haiti. This was a follow up to their story last week about cholera being on the rise. Then today, a major story on ProPublica broke about the Red Cross wasting hundreds of millions of dollars in Haiti since the quake. As I travel the world, the thing I hear most often is "I want to do something but I just don't know what". One Hundred For Haiti's Rural Water Project saves lives. And we can only make that happen over the next five years with help from people, organizations, businesses, schools, bands, and so on who step up and spread the word and also donate. We are as DIY as can possibly be. All labor for the projects is Haitian. No one makes money from One Hundred For Haiti and no money is wasted. We do what we can, when we can, with the resources we have. We do not have million dollar donors like the Red Cross and other inflated organizations. Our budget is small and bare bones. But we make things happen while others waste time and money on bureaucracy. In the next few weeks, in addition to the water project, we want to launch a major anti-rape initiative to educate people about child sexual assault in rural communities throughout the south of Haiti where child assaults are on the rise. We can only do these things when people step up and help. If you want to be involved, and make a real change in the world in a place most people have forgotten about, the time is now. Check out our website at: http://www.onehundredforhaiti.org. Be in touch with ideas, and more importantly action, anytime.

Never has spending thousands of dollars felt so worthwhile, even though in the midst of it, I wanted to fall into a hole and die. Happy audience + happy client = happy Greg.

Buy Ambien Without Prescription, Sometimes, the reasons why I do what I do are perfectly clear. Gaining clarity in moments isn't always easy, but helps when you have a friend who is a professional photographer to catch the moment on film, Ambien brand name.
In the last twenty years, Ambien coupon, I have appeared on stages in more countries than I could easily count, in front of literally hundreds of thousands of people in the widest variety of circumstances. I always try to have have every moment under control, my Ambien experience. It comes from a lifetime of experience as a professional communicator. Everything gets thought through, considered, prepared for, and that work and readiness is what leads to solid events, Buy Ambien Without Prescription. Ambien description, But at the core of it all, what matters most to me is creating real connection and real communication. If those elements aren't there in a presentation then all I am doing, real brand Ambien online, regardless of the intensity and specificity of the preparation for a particular event, Ambien pics, is just going through the motions. And life is too short to waste anyone's time like that, especially that of my generous audiences, is Ambien safe.

This brings me to my favorite presentation of the year. Buy Ambien Without Prescription, This has been a year that saw me onstage in front of three thousand people in Singapore talking about international connectedness, and then later in a huge theater packed full of real estate experts in Wisconsin talking about putting people before profits, and then in a club filled with hundreds of intensely connected listeners in St. Ambien canada, mexico, india, Petersburg Russia, and on and on. The world is a criss-crossed dotted map of my travels, Ambien steet value. But one event last week stood out amongst them all. Order Ambien from United States pharmacy, My friend Sean's mom hasn't been feeling well recently. The specifics of her illness are her personal business, but suffice to say, a hospital stay that was supposed to be short was extended recently and I drove up to Canada to visit her in the hospital, Buy Ambien Without Prescription. She was hopeful that she'd be getting out in a few days and I told her that I would come back up and juggle for her and for her granddaughter when she finally was allowed to go home. It was just a simple gesture really, buying Ambien online over the counter, but it was what I had to offer. Ambien samples, Now, I don't think there is anyone who while in the hospital thinks to themselves with any sense of urgency, "This hospital experience is terrible...what I REALLY need right now is a keynote speaking juggler." My offer served a dual purpose: first of all, buy Ambien without prescription, I thought it might be fun (this is the prime motivator for almost all of my actions in life). Buy Ambien from canada, I thought it might be especially fun for the little granddaughter. Buy Ambien Without Prescription, Secondly, it could give Sean's mom something to look forward to. We all recognize that when we have meaning in our lives that the meaningful thing, whatever it might be (an unfulfilled dream, purchase Ambien for sale, a relationship, Where can i find Ambien online, a hope, a goal) can be fuel for us through our darkest days.
Fast forward a week, Ambien results. She got out of the hospital, Ambien for sale, and I drove the three hours north back up to Canada to visit her at home. With me I had five juggling beanbags. Nothing more, Buy Ambien Without Prescription. No microphone, Ambien from canadian pharmacy. No stage. Ambien forum, None of the things I bring to my commercial speaking engagements. No expensive designer suit and tie. Buy Ambien Without Prescription, No comedy lines custom written for the event. Just five juggling beanbags, fast shipping Ambien, casual clothes, Ambien photos, and of course a passport (they tend to not let you into the country without one when coming home).
Whereas all other times the lights are on, the stage is set, Ambien over the counter, and every detail has been looked after and prepared to perfection, Ambien recreational, this was a night and a performance of a very different kind. The audience - Sean's mom and granddaughter and three more family members out of frame - were sitting on chairs and a couch or on the floor in a living room exactly like yours. I too sat on the floor, online buying Ambien.
When everyone was ready, rather than launch into a professional presentation of some kind, all I did was launch those beanbags aloft, Buy Ambien Without Prescription. Five of them started in motion in what is called a cascade, Ambien no prescription, the most basic of juggling patterns.
The little girl's eyes went wide. She instantly lost her mind in the best way, herbal Ambien, laughing all the while. Ambien dose, It was as if she couldn't believe what she was seeing. Buy Ambien Without Prescription, "Has she ever seen juggling before," I wondered. If she had, she wasn't letting on by way of her three-year-old semi intelligible descriptions to everyone of what she was looking at, purchase Ambien online no prescription, or by way of her laughter. Cheap Ambien, And her grandmother, Sean's mom, had a priceless smile too, Ambien online cod. But her smile was from a few different sources: not only for her granddaughter's joy, Buy Ambien online cod, but also for herself for finally being out of the hospital and at home with her family, and in appreciation for all of us taking the time to share and connect. (Ok, where can i buy cheapest Ambien online, maybe a bit in wonder too at what she was seeing before her...)
They were happy. So happy, Buy Ambien Without Prescription. Buy no prescription Ambien online, And the juggling and interaction and playing with them with those beanbags, whether by way of me juggling or by them trying themselves, went on for over an hour, Ambien pharmacy.
Typical audiences need something new every few seconds or so. They are trained by culture and communication norms to need constant stimuli, channel to channel, website to website, topic to topic, what's in it for me or I am moving on. And I feel that too when I am onstage. Buy Ambien Without Prescription, My pacing reflects that. Laugh, idea, repeat. Give them something new to think about, to hear, to see. But this night we all got back to basics. It was about sharing in the simplest of ways and enjoying it deeply.
In his classic theater book "The Empty Space", author Peter Brook opened with the line "I can take any empty space and call it a bare stage", Buy Ambien Without Prescription. He meant that all one needs for theatre to happen is beyond the professional details. You need only a living room. A few willing people to watch. Someone with something to offer from the heart. Buy Ambien Without Prescription, And all of them with love to offer back. This moment, one that my friend captured so well, was simple. It was about connection and sharing. It was one of those moments which you reflect on after the face and realize with a smile, "Wow...that was something real."
Sean reflected on this moment later with me saying, "I'm trying to capture as many moments in my mom's life as possible. Its great to see her smile. Its few and far between."
After far more than half a lifetime communicating and sharing, I can say without a doubt that moments like that are what drive me - when there is a real need to connect, and then when sincerity and communication and willingness and wonder suddenly blend in a moment. To have a chance to help create moments like this is really why I do what I do.
