South Bronx AIDS Orphans Rap a Positive Message for Other Children Facing Harsh Realities

“Pull Your Pants Up” iTunes Single Produced by Gore; YouTube Video Directed by Award-Winning Broadway Choreographer Joey McKneely

NEW YORK, November 12, 2012 -- Singer Lesley Gore (“It’s My Party,” “You Don’t Own Me”) spent the summer quietly riding the 6 train to the South Bronx to help give voice to a group of kids who often find themselves voiceless in a noisy city.

P.$: The Prevention $aves Coalition to Reduce the National Debt through $avings that Promote Progress

Join Us! (register above)

    You can help the United States reduce its national debt sanely and in ways that actually help people.

    It is well proven in almost every government and public endeavor----from chronic disease to juvenile delinquency to maintaining infrastructure---that good prevention generates enormous savings. Prevention improves lives and communities instead of leaving the gaps and collapse that desperate, last minute “savings” through service slashes so often leave.

    Right now, the National Debt Commission (formally known as the National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform)---which is empowered to make major recommendations to lower the national debt---is meeting to form a plan to be finalized by December.

    Join us in assuring that PREVENTION is central to how the United States sees and frames its overall idea of debt reduction.

    The linked article, A Prevention Model for Reducing the Federal Debt while Doing Social Good by Neil Wollman will give an extraordinary and concise overview of the possibilities for prevention --- a win-win of savings and progress!
