I have always been drawn to telling stories about peace and prosperity around the world.

After completing the best-selling book, Billions Rising, Empowering Self-Reliance, I have continued to seek out and publicize the stories of innovative and dedicated people and organizations who are creating sustainable solutions to poverty. I believe a new paradigm for philanthropy has been born; one that respects the dignity of those who have lived in poverty, allowing them to have the strongest voice in expressing what they truly need. Since much of this work goes unreported in the media, my Billions Rising Foundation is now in production of a weekly television show dedicated to delivering stories of success and sustainability. The show “Billions Rising, Out of Poverty” made its debut on September 11th. Look for our pilot episodes on

It is my goal to continue to spotlight efforts of the remarkable visionaries who work behind the scenes, making a difference that is permanent and uplifting for all of humanity. That’s the overriding goal of the Billions Rising Foundation, and my personal mission in life.
