How and Why You Can Help Diane --
Our beloved friend Diane Wilson needs our help. It's tough for a socially conscious, altruism-motivated, single lady today.

We are raising $5000 to bring Diane to the Bay Area (Concord, CA) for three weeks to participate in parts one and two -- Explore and Realize -- of the New Era Training (www.neweratrainings.com).

Please share (email, social media, etc.) this campaign with those who know and love Diane and/or those who recognize the value of helping a good person become great. Whether $5 or a $1000, all contributions will be greatly appreciated.

New Era Training can be a much needed kick in the butt for those who have become complacent, fearful, disillusioned, bored or just in need of a caring team who tell it like it is. The training is about going inside to find our most valued resources, skills and passions through the support and encouragement of a professional coaching team, a dedicated staff of volunteers and fellow students seeking the tools, determination and compassion to be the best that they can be.

We believe that Diane has yet to reach the zenith of her contribution to her local Harlem community and the world beyond. She has taught inner-city kids English, wrote scripts for NBC-TV network news, produced important socially relevant documentary series after series for PBS, raised lots of money for her local church St. Catherine's of Genoa, been an invaluable community advocate during her tenure on West Harlem's Community Board 9 and a tireless promoter of the rich cultural legacy of Harlem and New York City as a founding member of the Arts & Culture Initiative.

As a graduate of New Era we can expect that Diane will be in touch with her passion, true skills and talents, drive to attain her goals, dedication to creating a better world and unbridled love of humanity and all living things (especially dogs, then cats).

Much thanks.

The Impact --
New Era Trainings are two 5-day programs (Explore and Realize) designed to open up the participant to who they truly are, the experiences they really want in their life and how they can share themselves and their exceptional gifts and talents with the world. The program is experiential where the participant is called upon to take part fully in exercises designed to transform through lectures, one-on-one peer exchanges, small group interactions and exchanges with the entire student body.

When Diane completes Explore and Realize we can expect her to have the confidence, optimism and drive to identify and attain whatever she determines is right for her in her life. She will be motivated, fearless, altruistic, loving and, above all, clear about her reason for living life to the fullest.
