Operation Freedom Bell Campaign Joins Beth Moore, Ltcol Oliver North And Travis Cottrell To Provide Delivery Of Bibles To U.S. Military Troops

Nashville, TN (PRWEB) September 18, 2008

Indelible Creative Group recently announced two unprecedented projects for this holiday season, Operation Freedom Bell and new Travis Cottrell project, Ring The Bells.

A highlight of the Cottrell project release goes further than the music. Ring the Bells will be a launching point for Operation Freedom Bell, which brings hope, encouragement and Bibles to U.S. Soldiers who are serving overseas.

The purchase of each solid-brass Freedom Bell for only ten dollars provides an American solider with an “American Heroes” New Testament with Psalms and Proverbs. When a Freedom Bell is purchased, both the consumer and the solider will also receive video downloads from LtCol Oliver North and Beth Moore, along with a MP3 single from Travis Cottrell. Bells may be purchased and Bibles sent online through http://www.operationfreedombell.org, as well as through select retail and additional ministry outlets. At the Operation Freedom Bell website, there are also forums to hear directly from the soldiers and leave your prayers and thoughts for them as well.

“Often in life we ask ourselves: ‘How can I make a difference?'” Jeff Sheets, president & CEO of Son Companies & E3, a partner in Operation Freedom Bell. “Operation Freedom Bell was founded with the desire to provide a tangible way to keep our American Heroes at the forefront of our hearts and prayers and to be a supply line of the most important gifts we can give, God’s Word. You can make a difference, most importantly in praying for our troops and you can make an eternal impact by giving them God’s Word. In a real sense, participation in Operation Freedom Bell is one of the more tangible ways each of us can make a difference in the lives of men and women serving and protecting around the world.”

Operation Freedom Bell is a movement encouraging prayer and the opportunity to physically place the Word of God into the hands of men and women who need hope in the battlefield and encouragement from those they are serving. Travis Cottrell, Beth Moore, and LtCol Oliver North will lead this initiative, but it will be up to the American people to keep it fueled and keep the bells ringing.

Both the Ring the Bells CD and the Freedom Bell will be available at retail, online, and at Cottrell’s live tour events nationwide on October 7, 2008, through Indelible Creative Group / Word Entertainment. Cottrell will be touring this fall at Beth Moore Living Proof Live, and will be performing in December on Compassion International’s Gloria tour with Cindy Morgan and Shaun Groves.

Singer and Actress Mandy Moore Joins the UN Foundations Nothing But Nets for an Emergency Call to Action to Save Lives in the Central African Republic


Washington, DC (Vocus) July 28, 2010

Singer, songwriter, and actress Mandy Moore announced today she is joining the UN Foundations Nothing But Nets campaign to respond to an urgent need for life-saving, anti-malaria bed nets in the Central African Republicwhere a child dies every 30 seconds from malaria. Moore, an Ambassador for PSI (Population Services International), is partnering with Nothing But Nets and its UN partners to deliver bed nets to each family in the country who needs one, by the end of this year.

Malaria is preventable, yet it continues to kill nearly one million people every year, said Mandy Moore, who has seen the effects of malaria in Africa firsthand. Insecticide-treated bed nets are one of easiest ways to protect families from malaria-carrying mosquitoes. Im proud to be part of this initiative to send nets and save lives, and am hopeful we can reach this goal for the Central African Republic.

Nothing But Nets, a global, grassroots campaign to end malaria in Africa, has helped distribute more than 3 million long-lasting, insecticide-treated bed nets in 15 countries across Africa. With the help of Moore and PSI, covering the Central African Republic with bed nets will be a key step toward the global goal of ending malaria deaths by 2015.

People need to know that malaria, a disease that has existed for centuries and killed millions, can be stopped within the next five years, said Adrianna Logalbo, Director of Nothing But Nets. Mandy Moores voice, and the global reach of social media, is helping spread the buzz about the urgency of stopping this preventable disease.

Moore has been active in the fight against malaria since she saw its impact firsthand in South Sudan last year, on a trip to distribute nets with PSIan experience that inspired her to raise awareness to end malaria deaths. Id like to invite my fans to join me for a live discussion on August 12 at 2:00 p.m. [ET] to learn more and find out how they can help. Im eager to spread the word about this deadly disease and its simple solutionjust $ 10 to send a life-saving bed net.

Moore will join experts from Nothing But Nets and PSI for a Town Hall on malaria in Africa, broadcast live on Facebook, to speak more about the emergency appeal for nets in the Central African Republic and what Americans can do to help. To learn more, please visit http://www.NothingButNets.net.

BACKGROUND

Malaria is endemic throughout the Central African Republic year-round and is the leading killer of children under the age of five. Nothing But Nets, in partnership with Many Moore and PSI, plans to deliver 837,000 long-lasting, insecticide-treated bed nets to ensure each family in the country is protected from malaria.

Every 30 seconds, a child dies from malaria – which is easily prevented through the use of an insecticide-treated bed net. The nets create a protective barrier against mosquitoes at night, when the vast majority of malaria transmissions occur, and are the most cost-effective method of preventing the spread of the disease. One bed net can protect a family of four, and lasts up to five years. A net costs just $ 10 to purchase, deliver, and educate the recipient on its proper use.

To date, Nothing But Nets has raised more than $ 30 million to distribute more than 3 million nets to families throughout Africa. For more information, please visit http://www.NothingButNets.net.

Singer-Songwriter, and Actress Mandy Moore Distributes Life-Saving Nets in the Central African Republic


Bangui, Central African Republic (Vocus) October 1, 2010

Singer-songwriter, and actress Mandy Moore helped distribute thousands of long-lasting, insecticide-treated mosquito nets today to families in the Central African Republic (CAR), a country with one of the highest childhood death rates in the world and where malaria is a primary cause of illness and death. Moore, an Ambassador for PSI (Population Services International), traveled to Africa as part of a trip led by the UN Foundations Nothing But Nets campaign and PSI. The distribution of the life-saving, anti-malaria nets was made possible by Nothing But Nets supporters, and UNICEF, who together answered the UNs urgent call to send a net to every family in CAR.

It was an honor to join this trip to help distribute long-lasting, insecticide-treated nets to help prevent malaria which continues to kill nearly one million people every year, said Mandy Moore. This week Ive met mothers who have lost children to malaria and worry daily about losing others. It is life-changing to be able to give them nets to protect their babies from malaria-carrying mosquitoes while they sleep.

While in CAR, Moore met with families to learn about the devastating effects of malaria and the impact of mosquito nets. She helped the Ministry of Health and UN partners hang the nets and educate families about their proper use. Moore also participated in a local press event to raise awareness about the importance of using life-saving nets.

Moore has been active in the fight against malaria since she first saw its impact in South Sudan last year, on a trip to distribute nets with PSIan experience that inspired her to raise awareness to end malaria deaths. Were on our way to reaching our goal of delivering a net to every family in CAR by the end of the year. Over the next week the partnership will deliver over 400,000 nets, nearly half the amount it will take to fill the gap. It takes just $ 10 to helpI hope more people will join us to make sure these families can sleep safely under an anti-malaria net. Together, we can cover the country.

Nothing But Nets, a global, grassroots campaign to end malaria in Africa, has helped distribute more than 3.5 million long-lasting, insecticide-treated bed nets in 25 countries across Africa. With the help of Moore and PSI, covering the Central African Republic with mosquito nets will be a key step toward the global goal of ending malaria deaths by 2015.

Malaria is preventable and we are making progress toward bringing an end to malaria deaths in the next five years, said Adrianna Logalbo, Director of Nothing But Nets. We thank Mandy Moore for joining us in the movement to end malaria and helping to raise awareness about the urgency of preventing this deadly disease.

Residents Rallying for Fallen GI, Ben Moore, Demonstrates Unique Unity of Bordentowns Historic Bedroom Community

Bordentown, NJ (PRWEB) January 28, 2011

The smaller town of Bordentown, NJ was bustling with thousands of patriots inclusive of its residents and its own war veterans, as well as many US veterans from around the country as people came out to show their respects and to honor and remember fallen war hero, Pfc. Benjamin G. Moore, member of the 693rd Engineer Company out of Fort Drum, NY, 23, who was laid to rest on Saturday the 22nd of January, 2011.

Moore died in Afghanistan when an IED (improvised explosive device) killed him in the line of duty while valiantly serving his country.

In spite of the planned protests by the notorious Westboro Baptist Church which pickets at many veteran memorials around the US, claiming that our country is being punished for its tolerance of homosexuality Bordentown came alive, united together as one, and the residents and its businesses, and even folks from nearby counties and cities, assured that Moores procession was peaceful and without unrest, as they bid their farewells to a fallen American hero.

Bordentown is a small town of barely 4,000 residents, but its history dates backs to the Revolutionary War, and some of the original signees of the Declaration of Independence even resided here [Francis Hopkinson; 1737-1791]. The town embraces the honoring of war veterans who have given their lives in the name of freedom for one and all.

Moores tragic death was treated no differently.

Known by most of the town as the beloved Mayor of Bordentown, Moore received the customary military bugle requiem followed by an honorary three volley rifle salute and the folding of the flag, which was offered on behalf of the United States of America, and was presented to and accepted by his family.

Moores grandmother thanked the large crowd of people who had gathered to remember one of their own, telling them, I love all of you people for thinking so much of him and having such wonderful things to say. He was the sweetest, loving child anyone ever knew.

Moores passing and the hundreds (perhaps even thousands) of supporters that came out for his funeral and memorial is directly in juxtaposition with the mindset and manner of the residents of Bordentown. Its a small town ambience that is truly reminiscent of something that is not so easily found in the US during the present day. Its a place where everyone knows everyone, and a place where you are welcomed with outstretched arms and smiling faces.

Bordentown is such a closely woven community that business owners are all known by first name, even by people who may not have ever contracted them or had a need for their products or services.

If you find yourself in Bordentown, its not the same as you might imagine many other small towns would be. Visitors are offered some unique amenities while traveling through this little niche in the heart of New Jersey.

A widely reviewed and very popular business in Bordentown happens to be a gourmet restaurant called Oliver a Bistro, an intimate eatery that specializes in Central and South American-Caribbean fares using a French technique with Mediterranean and Asian ingredients.

We frequent this establishment often, it is our favorite place to eat in Bordentown, said Bryan Byard, a longtime Bordentown resident. I like the atmosphere and the food quality is excellent. I really like that its a BYOB, (bring your own bottle [of wine]; the restaurant does not have a liquor license so guests dining at Oliver a Bistro are allowed to bring their own wine to enjoy with their meal).

When asked what he finds to be so attractive about living in Bordentown, Byard said that its about the towns rich history and the togetherness of its residents.

Its a small town and a very historic community; Thomas Paine [1737-1809] lived here. Being that its small, its also very tight-knit, he explained. People are really nice and friendly here. Moores death was a very heartwarming story. The entire community really came out to support him and his family. He was also a firefighter and an EMT. Moore was very loved by the people of Bordentown.

Massage therapist and Bordentown resident, Pamela Dahl, who works at the reputed Wellness Center of Bordentown a signature day spa and wellness center that incorporates an eclectic mixture of Eastern and Western healing philosophies into their own unique brand of natural healing said that Moores story and the way that the townspeople united to celebrate his life was nearly indescribable.

Ben went to school with my son. He was two years ahead of him, however, and I did not know him personally, Dahl said. Just being in town and looking down the street at the memorialthe only word that I could think of was: Surreal.

Even though Dahl didnt know Moore personally, it didnt change the fact that she, like every other resident of the town, was impacted, touched and affected by his passing.

For someone that you dont really know personally, I thought to myself, what a wonderful tribute to a fallen hero; he had to be quite a person to be honored in this way. It made me think about how proud I was to be an American, as a first-generation immigrant, and how proud I was to be a resident of Bordentown, Dahl recalled of Bens memorial.

Moores memorial was so extraordinary and moving that Dahl said its unlike anything that shes ever seen in her life before.

Ive never seen anything like this in Seattle, and I lived there for 30 years, she said. There were a lot of folks in town that did not know him, and its just hard to describe, it was all very emotional. It was amazing how the people in this town came together to protect his family from the Westborough Baptist Church, who was trying to mar Bens memory. It just makes me so proud to be a part of this small-knit community.

Tantamount to Bordentowns multifarious mixture of hospitable residents, and the towns equally as diverse history, are some inspiring personal stories that are very relevant to the underlying superlatives of what it truly means to be an American citizen.

Marinela Csefan one of the estheticians at the Wellness Center of Bordentown is a transplant from Romania, who came to America two decades ago, like Dahl, in pursuit of the American Dream that many would-be immigrants from around the world fantasize about.

Marinella is from Romania, said Dahl of her coworker. I met her about 8 months ago. Shes an esthetician working at the wellness center, alongside of myself and the owner, Jayme Bussey. Much like me, Marinella is in pursuit of the American Dream. And we are both first-generation immigrants.

Moores heartbreaking story has recently placed Bordentown under the national spotlight, but the town is literally bursting at the seams with good folks just like him. Its seemingly in par with the mantra and mindset of these humble residents. Everyone who comes to Bordentown is considered to be a part of its far-reaching and ever-growing family.

Theres just something about this town, it just warms your heart about how everyone comes together, Dahl explained. When I saw all of the townspeople come out, and the fire trucks lined up on the street, I called my mother and told her that Id never seen anything like this before. Even when protestors were involved, the town ensured that everything was handled peacefully. It really touches you, and being a West Coast girl, this is one of the things that keeps me in Bordentown.

You feel so very welcomed here, Dahl inferred. Its like the TV show Cheerseveryone knows your name.
