    And So Romney & Obama Superpacs and Donors - Could Our Dare 2 Be Different Youth Groups Get Some Help?

     
    As I sat down after a long day hosting our Dare 2 Be Different Career Fair at The Tyrell Williams Primary School in St. Kitts - Caribbean, I decided to take a look at the latest news around the world since my team and I was out of touch, inspiring children and youth for almost 6 hours.

     

    Oh Yes - The Children looked so professionally dressed. We got over 270 students to come to school dressed in clothing portraying what they wanted to be in the future. Their parents did prepare with them extremely well. You should have been there to see 5 and 6 year olds dressed like nurses and doctors and lawyers and footballers and 9 and 10 and 11 year olds dressed like Amercian Airlines Hostesses and  LIAT Pilots. I have hundreds of pictures and alot of video footage. We'll be playing them on Dare 2 Be DIfferent Internet TV - www.d2bdtv.com for a long time. The Career Day was GREAT. The best one since we've been hosting them for schools over the last four years. (We're waiting for your invitation to inspire Youth in a Fun, Creative Way in your country. Just get us the tickets and put us up and we'll be there. It's your choice if you want to bless our ministry. Impacting Youth First in Always Priority for Us. We're ready to leave TOMORROW). This is the type of work Dare 2 Be Different International - www.d2bdifferent.com has been doing over the last 4 years with very little SUPPORT.

    And so, as I sat, a particular article appeared on my screen suggesting that The Republicans spent and lost over 380 Million United States Dollars in their campaign.

     



    This prompted me to search other websites and get a true picture of what was really raised and spent by both Republicans and Democrats.

     

     

    Democrats Raised US$934 Million Dollars and Spent US$852.9 Million Dollars

     

    Republicans Raised US$881.8 Millon Dollars and SpentUS$752.3 Million Dollars

     

    You know, if any policitical party had hired me as an advisor (www.kwconsultingskn.com) I had a unique campaign strategy that I would have used. Probably Republicans need to use it to revamp their party. (I would not charge you for it)

    If I were a USA Presidential Candidate during this year's election. I would have spent at least US$5 Million dollars opening small businesses around the USA and putting young people to work. Even though it would have been IMPOSSIBLE to employ all youths, I firmly believe that this act of compassion would have sent a STRONG message to youth that help was on the way and they would have reached the Young People - something they have been failing to do all these years.

    Now that is US$380 down the drain just on advertisement and Millions too from President Obama's Campaign all in the name of POLITICS.

    If half of that was used to HELP YOUTHS - imagine what a turn around our USA economy and global economies, especially here in the Caribbean would have gotten. It worries me at times when we say things are hard and difficult. Is that true? Or are we just spending monies in the wrong areas.

    That's just my view as a 26 year old Caribbean Youth Advocate from the outside looking in. If I had 1 Million United States Dollars to help my ministry, the world would stand amazed to see how much I would empower youths not only in the Caribbean, but in the USA and around the World and turn that Million into MEGA  MILLIONS. But. . . nobody cares about us Young People - we have to just continue to work hard and do our own thing. We are only remembered during political times in all countries around the world and then forgotten about for the next 4 to 5 years until election comes around again.

    Haven't you noticed?

    Dare 2 Be Different International - www.d2bdifferent.com and many other youth groups around the world struggle to raise capital to carry out creative and unique youth events and we believe, that when larger organizations and people help and endorse youth groups across the USA and the world, it will have a ripple effect. Young people are always looking out to see who cares for them and they respond positively when they support.

    They shop at their businesses, support them and the like.

    I won't write anymore, I would just put in a public request for help from those who can definitely afford to help from around the world or who have their little and still want to help.

    Note well, over the four (4) years of our existence, we've been running on the little and doing a GOOD  THING  FOR  OUR  YOUTHS. No Government support, no church support, no Non Governmental Organization Support. The Little People, parents, adults, children have always chipped in and helped everytime. If it were not for them, we wouldn't be around. Many could never afford to give money, but they pick guavas so we can make guava jam and sell. They grow sweet potatoes and bring breadfruit so that my mother can make Sweet Potato Flour and Bread Fruit Flour with the youth and sell them to raise funds to do what we do. (We hope to start the Dare 2 Be Different Agro-Processing Centre when God Provides and turn farm goods into finished shelf products and teaching our youths in the process). We take some new and used donations given specifically for yard sales and sell them on The Caribbean's Auction Site - www.caribbesales.com to raise funds.  The simple folks, not big donors, give flour, rice, macaroni, sugar, chicken and other groceries so we can help to feed other youths and impact older individuals who are struggling.

    When they travel, they bring back little toys etc to make our youths smile. The Small People keep Dare 2 Be Different Going. Imagine, with NOTHING, we are expanding to the world in FAITH and whether we get support or help, we are still determined to spread and open across the world and continue to do GOOD. God never forgets his own.

    Dare 2 Be Different's goal is to open as many branches across the Caribbean, The USA and The Globe. God never lets His plan die. If God so impresses upon your heart to give financially, through gifts for our youths, foodstuff, computers, building material, land for our Mission Centre and the like, we truly appreciate it. If He doesnot, we still appreciate you and would still hope to make an impact on your life or on the lives of your children and relatives sometime in the future.

    NB: Let's look at a few of the Republican and Democratic Donors and see how much they gave towards a Political Campaign while our youths in the USA were in need of jobs and losing their homes and our youths around the world were suffering too.

    Dare 2 Be Different International - www.d2bdifferent.com  will be registereing and opening charity branches soon in Florida, New York and Texas. These branches are to creatively and innovatively impact USA Youth with Caribbean Type Trainng and Inspiration with a difference.

    USA Youths found us online on Facebook, were impressed with the work we were doing and begged how they can join us and help us open in the USA and where they can get jobs at our Charity in the process. Imagine, a Caribbean Ministry and Idea with very little resources is going to be bringing Jobs to USA Youths - Imagine what we would do if we had money.

    We bless God for a couple in Maryland, who found out about our ministry and immediately got excited to help us raise funds simply because the recognize the BIG GLOBAL VISION of Khrystus Wallace - www.kwforchrist.com and see how much we will impact the USA too.


    The Republican Party Donors Raised
    http://www.nbc40.net/story/20046397/gop-groups-taking-stock-after-380-million-loss

    —American Crossroads and its nonprofit arm, Crossroads GPS. Together, the two groups spent $180 million on ads to oust Obama.

    The Crossroads organization, cofounded by former President George W. Bush's longtime political counselor Karl Rove, also spent $76 million on ads to help Republicans running in competitive Senate seats, but the GOP lost five of seven of those races. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce spent $33 million on ads for losing Republican Senate candidates.

    —Restore Our Future, a super PAC founded by former Romney advisers specifically to boost him, spent $91 million on commercials. Americans for Prosperity and American Future Fund, two nonprofits founded by the billionaire industrialists Charles and David Koch, together spent about $66 million on presidential campaign ads.

    —Several smaller groups rounded out the total, including the Republican Jewish Committee, the Ending Spending Action Fund, and Thomas Petterfy, a Hungarian-American billionaire who spent $2.8 million on ads he starred in himself.

    Several other enormously wealthy donors also saw their investments in outside groups apparently go down the drain.

    —Las Vegas casino magnate Sheldon Adelson and his wife, Miriam, were the top contributors to Republican-leaning groups. The couple gave at least $53 million to organizations supporting former House Speaker Newt Gingrich during the GOP nominating period and later to groups trying to help Romney, according to the Center for Responsive Politics, which tracks campaign spending.

    —Texas-based leveraged buyout specialist Harold Simmons and his wife, Annette, contributed $24 million; Texas builder Bob Perry gave $21 million, and TD Ameritrade founder Joe Ricketts gave nearly $13 million.

    The Democratic Party Donors Raised
    http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/10/20/us-usa-campaign-money-idUSBRE89J03K20121020

    The pro-Obama group Priorities USA Action said it raised $15.2 million in September, compared with $14.8 million for the pro-Romney group Restore Our Future, according to filings with the Federal Election Commission.

    Restore Our Future, a formidable advertising force whose attack ads on Romney's Republican rivals helped him secure the party's presidential nomination, began the crucial month of October with $16.6 million in cash on hand. On Saturday, Priorities' filings are due to reveal its cash on hand and donors for September.

    Early this year, many Democratic donors were reluctant to donate to PACs supporting their party's candidates because they disliked the idea of contributing to attack ads and other negative advertising - a staple of spending by groups known as "Super PACs" because they have no limits on how much they can raise and spend.

    In recent months, fundraising for Democratic PACs has accelerated to counter the waves of anti-Obama and anti-Democratic ads from Republican groups.

    Meanwhile, the Democratic PACs seeking to help candidates win House of Representatives and Senate seats also saw donations rise in September.

    Majority PAC, the group helping Democratic candidates for the Senate, announced on Friday its biggest cash haul since its creation in 2010: $10.4 million in September, and another $9.7 million during the first week of October.
