As well as functioning as the donation mechanism, the game also includes information about the issue of child hunger.For each of the game’s three levels that a consumer completes, Western Union will donate one school meal to the World Food Programme. When consumers complete the game, Western Union will donate an additional meal, for a total of four meals for every completed game.Jean Claude Farah, Senior Vice President for the Middle East and Africa, Western Union said: “Western Union has committed to providing a minimum of 200,000 meals and with the help of our consumers we are aiming to provide up to 240,000 meals, worth US$60,000, to help children succeed in school and in life.”The site includes e-cards, and a Zakat Calculator, which lets visitors calculate the Zakat amount they need to pay depending on their assets, savings accounts, deposits, cash in hand, business inventories and liabilities.The Dubai-based Western Union Middle East & Africa (MEA) Team has also donated $15,000 to the World Food Programme, which the team was awarded earlier this year when it won the Western Union CEO Award for Excellence for 2011. The Western Union Foundation has matched this amount, taking the amount donated to the World Food Programme beyond the Ramadan campaign to US$30,000.www.westernunionramadan.com Tagged with: corporate Gaming Ramadan About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Improve knowledge of social investment, what is it, what it can be used for and the journey & process is requires2. Enable organisations to make informed decisions, based on their needs and situation, not because of embedded attitudes3. Help connect organisations to the right investors to talk to base on shared valuesThe stimulus behind it is to overcome the commonly cited problem that that social investment is confusing and complex to understand.Good Finance has been live in beta format since the start of the project last year. The new website contains up to date content and case studies, a tool to help users assess if social investment is right for them and the first ever directory of social investors and advisers.Kieran Whiteside, the new Project Manager for Good Finance said:“While the social investment market has continued to grow, charities and social enterprises have often struggled to navigate this challenging and complex world. ‘Our hope is that this new website will help charities and social enterprises feel empowered to make informed and educated investment decisions that are right for them.”Sarah Wren, CEO of Hertfordshire Independent Living Service, one of the charities that took part in the user-design workshops, said:“A few years ago we sought social investment to support a period of rapid expansion and growth. At that time it was really difficult to get sound advice about the range of options, and over the intervening years, the range of financial products and options has grown and become increasingly difficult to negotiate.“We were delighted to help support Good Finance with a user-design project to create clear, simple resources and tools to help social businesses and charities find funding which works for them.”

With more events on offer and attendance figures increasing year on year, we anticipate Riverfest 2015 to be the most successful year yet,” she explained.Ireland’s largest BBQ competition, a spectacular fireworks display over King John’s Castle as well as action and adventure on the River Shannon are all on this weekend’s festival menu. Other highlights include a busking competition, a free fashion extravaganza, soapbox derby and a mouth-watering continental market.Mayor of Limerick, Cllr Kevin Sheahan hailed Riverfest as “Limerick’s most adventure packed weekend of the year”.“Riverfest has developed into a major festival that has a growing reputation at a national level and repeat visitors come back to stay and enjoy themselves in Limerick year after year which is testament to the success of the event,” said Mayor Sheahan.Mags Enright, proprietor of the Texas Steakout in the city centre is equally enthused about this weekend’s spectacle. The restaurateur feels Riverfest is brilliant for Limerick City and local businesses.“We are busy all year round, but Riverfest brings lots of tourists to Limerick and introduces us to lots of new customers. It gives the city a great lift,” said Mags.Michael Gleeson of Michael Gleeson Shoes on William Street said that despite much of the business flowing down the city closer to the river during the weekend, he is still a big fan of Riverfest and what it does for Limerick.“It creates a buzz in the city and creates more footfall. It’s great for the city and bucks people up,” he said.Fringe events for this weekend’s festival include a family fun fair in Arthur’s Quay Park with kids’ arts and crafts in the Hunt Museum also planned. For music fans, acts such as Nathan Carter and Hudson Taylor are both set to entertain at the Big Top in the city’s Milk Market.Kieran Ryan of Galway-based Grooveyard Event Management, who are running this year’s Riverfest on behalf of the Council, said they put a lot of focus this year on the River Shannon.A series of water-based activities will take place this Saturday, May 2 between Thomond and Sarsfield bridges. The day long programme will feature a sailing regatta, sea scouts boat launch and opportunities for the public to take to the waters of the River Shannon and enjoy the scenic riverside views.Meanwhile, the sixth annual Barrington’s Hospital Great Limerick Run will take place in the city centre this Sunday, May 3, with over 13,000 participants. Around 50,000 spectators are expected to line various parts of the race route from Pery Square to the finish line on O’Connell Street.Labour councillor for City West and co-organiser of the Barrington’s Hospital Great Limerick Run, Joe Leddin sees Riverfest as a prime example of creating a real sense of pride amongst locals and visitors of what the city has to offer.“As co-organiser, I know that the run generates in excess of €4.5 million this year with a record 13,500 people, many from outside the city and county, already signed up to run, jog or walk,” he said.And he maintains that it could set the template for other events to maximise the benefits for Limerick’s tourism industry.“The local authority is beginning to realise the potential to build other festivals such as the Culture and Chips event on other weekends. A more strategic approach, similar to other cities. must be adopted to maximise tourism potential especially with Shannon airport doing so well with more route destinations serving the region,” he explained.

ABC News (LOS ANGELES) — It’s been 13 years since a young Southern California father of two was found shot dead in his bed.But investigators are now releasing a new composite sketch of the suspect, a move the Los Angeles County Sheriff hopes will finally lead to the break detectives have been waiting for all these years.“We believe we can show you the face of a killer,” Los Angeles County Sheriff Jim McDonnell said Tuesday at a news conference. “We believe we are very, very close to a breakthrough in this case.”The investigation began on Dec. 6, 2005, when Edward Berber was found shot to death inside his Hacienda Heights home.His mother, who hadn’t heard from him in several days, had gone to his home and found his body in bed, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said. Detectives believe Berber, 27, was sleeping when he was shot and killed.He left behind two children, ages 8 and 3, the sheriff’s office said.Berber and his wife were estranged at the time and in the process of divorcing.Nothing in Berber’s background suggests he had a falling out with anyone in his family or in the neighborhood, the sheriff’s office said.There was no sign of forced entry into his home and nothing is believed to have been stolen, according to the sheriff’s office.Berber was a “family man that loved his children,” his sister, Alejandra Johnson, said at Tuesday’s news conference.“My brother had goals. He worked all his life to be accomplished and a professional, with a master’s degree from Notre Dame. [He] was about to take his CPA test,” she said, overcome with emotion. “I wished I could be like him.”As the years went by without an arrest, the initial homicide investigators exhausted all leads and have since retired.“With a new set of homicide investigators looking at the facts of the case, the application of advanced technology, follow-up interviews and ongoing re-evaluation of evidence, homicide detectives believe this is a very solvable case,” the sheriff’s office said.The composite sketch released on Tuesday was developed “based on re-interviewing witnesses from in 2005 and early 2006, as well as witnesses that were interviewed just recently,” the sheriff’s office said.The image depicts what the suspect would have looked like 13 years ago.“Please look at this face,” McDonnell said Tuesday. “Someone out there knows him.”A $10,000 reward has been offered for information leading to an arrest.Anyone with information is urged to call the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s Homicide Bureau at (323) 890-5500.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

ABC7(NEW YORK) — Video captured the dramatic moment when a 15-year-old girl was wounded in a drive-by shooting after gunmen drove up to a porch in New Jersey and started spraying bullets.The teen — the last one in the door when the bullets started flying on the front porch in Newark Wednesday night — was shot several times, mostly by ricochet bullets to her arms and legs, said Mark Di Ionno, a spokesman for the city’s department of public safety.The girl, who was not identified, is reported to be in stable condition, said Department of Public Safety spokeswoman Catherine Adams.“Luckily she’s OK,” Newark Public Safety Director Anthony Ambrose told ABC New York station WABC-TV.“It was a summer night in the city … they were sitting out there on the porch,” Ambrose said.“We don’t know if she was the intended target, if she wasn’t the intended target, that’s all part of the investigation,” Ambrose told WABC-TV.No arrests have been made, Di Ionno said.“We do know that the vehicle is still at large,” Ambrose added. “It’s a stolen vehicle out of Montclair, [New Jersey].”No arrests have been made, Di Ionno said.“We do know that the vehicle is still at large,” Ambrose added. “It’s a stolen vehicle out of Montclair, [New Jersey].”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
