Non-Profit – Pro-Bono News from www.NewsCouncil.org

We identify important public affairs issues which may require public relations help -- issues that, with greater information, can increase better understanding by all Americans.

We ask public relations executives to donate non-peak time to assist non-profits.

We match non-profits with public relations execs willing to volunteer their expertise.

We ask firms which provide public relations services to donate or provide reduced prices for their services, bandwidth, advertising space and executive time for assistance:

In the age of coronavirus social distancing, marriage skills are reaching new audiences

Marriage education skills are reaching new audiences in the age of coronavirus. One exercise is helping healthcare teams, couples, and families stay connected through social distancing.

In PAIRS classes, it's called the "Daily Temperature Reading" or the "DTR". Originally developed by Virginia Satir, the DTR is often the skill couples point to years later as having been the most useful. As the world adjusts to COVID-19 measures, Virginia Satir's influence continues to make a difference.

Cleaning the Waters and Sediments of Boston Harbor

Boston Harbor was once called the dirtiest water in America. Raw sewage, runoff of the streets, heavy metals, and excess nutrients were found in the waters. This caused all sorts of problems for the people of Boston's health and safety. With the MWRA implementing Deer Island Sewage Treatment Plant, thanks to ratepayers, Boston Harbor is now known as, "A Great American Jewel." Harbor waters are cleaner with people enjoying beaches and recreating. 

Nitrogen as a pollutant

Nitrogen is the worst pollutant of the oceans. It is a limiting nutrient in saltwater, and comes from sources like septic and sewage, agriculture, and lawns with synthetic fertilizers. Synthetic fertilizers need to be applied to lawns multiple times a year and in great quantities. All of that fertilizer does not make it into the soil. When it rains, it gets washed away into rivers, oceans, and sediment where it becomes a problem. Heavy rainfall can sweep septic, sewage, and agriculture nitrogen into waters too.

Coronavirus + Televangelists = Deadly Mix

 

Last year an informant visited Trinity Foundation and told us stories about the apparent contradictions of a prominent televangelist. While promoting himself as a faith healer, the televangelist is secretly a germaphobe. He limited contact with his employees while preaching that we shouldn't have fear.

In contrast, Italian Catholic priest Giuseppe Berardelli recently died from the coronavirus after voluntarily giving his respirator to a younger person struggling with same virus. Berardelli's sacrificial life decision is a bold picture of John 15:13, which says, "Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one's life for his friends."

As the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic has grown, televangelists and so-called prophets have exploited the tragic health situation with false prophecies and fundraising appeals. The Apostle Paul urges believers to test prophecies in 1 Thessalonians 5:20-21. Let's take a look at some of them.

April Fools' Day: Italians are not joking around anymore as civil unrest builds

Culturally the first of April  – April Fools' Day – is the same in Italy as in America. It's a day of practical jokes and laughs. Only here it's called April Fish Day, because it is related to the ancient end of the Pisces or Fish sign in the zodiac.  It also the day of jokes which Italians inherited from the ancient Roman feast of Hilaria (hilarious in English) celebrated around the spring equinox. During the Hilaria celebrations Romans would dress up in funny masks or try and fool each other with a modified physical appearance.

Enough with the cultural history lesson. The humor shared today on Italian social media bordered on cruel sarcasm.  People exchanged private messages about a month long lock-in being lifted (April Fish Day!!) and sudden announcements about emergency bailout checks in the mail (April Fish Day again!!). It was a sad display of black humor playing off peoples's desperate hopes and pretenses, and no doubt their willingness to get a laugh at any cost. The truth behind this humor is that the state-owned news media updates and government press releases are so confusing that no one knows what to believe anymore. Anything could be true. Even the police-state signed self-certifications that Italians must carry with them as legal waivers explaining which of the four "government approved reasons" they have for driving or walking around has been updated with new rules four or five times in last few  weeks.
