NFL star Jonathan Babineaux has joined forces with the Lupus Foundation of America, Georgia Chapter to help raise awareness for lupus, one of the least recognizable and most misunderstood diseases affecting 55,000 Georgians and more than 1.5 million Americans.

 

Jonathan, who was recently inducted into the Port Arthur Hall of Fame along with his brother Jordan who plays for the Seattle Seahawks, through their Babineaux Brothers Foundation have been sponsoring fundraisers in their hometown of Port Arthur, Texas, to benefit lupus research for four years.  Jonathan is now assisting Georgians living with lupus by helping highlight the programs, services and events provided by the Georgia chapter.

 

The Lupus Foundation of America, Georgia Chapter (LFAGA) is the only statewide valuable resource for lupus patients, providing thousands with educational information, physician referrals, resources, support groups and educational programs. 90% of every dollar raised stays in Georgia to support chapter programs.

 

Monday, Sept.  22, 2008, the LFAGA is hosting its first annual “Drive for Lupus Now” Golf Tournament at Towne Lake Hills Golf Club with PGA Tour’s Jason Bohn and Mark Strickland, the 2007 Georgia State Golf Association, Player of the Year. To play golf, sponsor a golfer or for more information on all chapter programs and how to get involved and make a difference for those living with lupus, visit www.lfaga.org or call 770-333-5930 or email info@lfaga.org

 

Due to the alarming increase in the number of people affected by lupus in their hometown, the Babineaux family raise funds to benefit lupus programs as well as building a community recreation center.

JANET HUBERT, THE ORIGINAL “AUNT VIV” OF THE FRESH PRINCE OF BEL AIR, ALIGNS WITH WAL-MART TO DEBUT CHILDRENS’ MERCHANDISE
‘J.G. & The B.C. Kids’ Backpacks In Stores This Fall

JANET AND BACK PACKS
 

New York, NY, June 2008 – Veteran actor Janet Hubert, who starred on the hit NBC sitcom The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, premieres her line of backpacks for kids in Wal-Mart’s Northeast stores in September. Featuring characters from her to-be-released children’s book and DVD animated series J.G. & The B.C. Kids, the tote bags will be affordably priced for the Fall 2008 back-to-school season. Hubert’s entry into the children’s retail market was inspired by her desire to counterbalance the limiting, and increasingly vulgar, media messages targeted toward today’s youth.
 
Hubert, an alumna of The Juilliard School, New York City’s prestigious performing arts conservatory, incorporates philanthropic and social activist aims into her life’s mission. She’s served as an ambassador for the National Osteoporosis Foundation and has also worked for the National Minority Health Organization, traveling around the country addressing the health care disparity for ethnic minorities in the U.S. Hubert says of her J.G. & The B.C. Kids creation, “I have always wanted to do something to change or make a difference in the lives of children. I am just like every mom out there who struggles with trying to raise a child in a culture that tells our children to constantly fit in with what is popular and not necessarily right for them. I created JG and the BC kids for that child who refuses to become like everyone else. I’m elated that Wal-Mart recognizes the need for an encouraging and affirming image for our children and I look forward to groundbreaking success with such an impactful, global retail organization.” While entry of the J.G. & The B.C. Kids backpacks into the Wal-Mart arena is initially limited to stores in the Northeast region, Hubert maintains that the full line of merchandise (which includes lunch bags, beverage containers, t-shirts, caps etc.) will hopefully be carried nationwide throughout the chain. Competitively priced from $9.99 – $19.99, the backpacks spotlight the series’ various animated ethnic characters, illustrated and co-created by artist Vincent Spencer. Like Hubert, Spencer’s mission with the project is to encourage young people to find their way by believing more deeply in themselves.

PR News Launches Going Green Guidebook

(July 28, 2008, www.prnewsonline.com) – From conserving energy to energizing employees to be environmentally aware, the just-published PR News guidebook , Going Green: Case Studies in Outstanding Green Business Practices, features one–of–a–kind case studies, viewpoints and communications tactics for thriving by being green in all areas of business.

The Going Green Guidebook is available at www.prnewsonline.com/store/13.html

From the publishers of PR News and its sister brands min and CableFAX, the Going Green guidebook includes a wide range of strategies for greening your business. The 200+ page guidebook includes profiles of blue chip companies, small organizations and start–ups that have reinvented or reconfigured their businesses to be more environmentally responsible. The guidebook is tailored to communications, marketing and senior executives looking for a blueprint to communicate existing green efforts or to get new initiatives off the ground.

Companies profiled in the Guidebook include GE, Nickelodeon, HP, Walgreen’s, Wal–Mart, Broward County Library, BASF, Travelocity, Harrah’s, Dow Chemical, National Geographic, Chiquita, U.S. Army, Monroe College, Comcast and nearly 100 more organization of all sizes and budgets.

Considering that 70% of Americans believe a green designation for a company is just a “marketing tactic” yet most employees feel it’s extremely important for their company to be environmentally progressive, this Guidebook distills the most elements of going green and smartly communicating your efforts in the marketplace.

“Most companies are in the early stages of going green and there’s no one–size–fits–all solution to environmental responsibility,” says Diane Schwartz, vice president and group publisher of PR News and editor of the Guidebook. “By providing perspectives and ideas from hundreds of executives across the globe, this Guidebook should give our readers a clear idea of what’s working, and just as importantly, what’s not, when it comes to going green.”

The Going Green Guidebook is available at www.prnewsonline.com/store/13.html
