Jazz For Peace Concert Series The Grand Finale ~ Shriners Hospitals for Children Supports Nevada Youth Alliance

Here is some great background on Las Vegas [global] community activist David Osman's latest projects and alliances which now include a very strong partnership with Justin Timberlake and the Shriner's Hospital for Children.

It represents just a "few" more reasons why I have for long recommended and advocated for David and his Nevada Youth Alliance as partners for "local" entities such as Gawad Kalinga Las Vegas, UPS Las Vegas and various Civitan Las Vegas chapters.  Obviously, Gawad Kalinga, UPS and Civitan all are global entities of prominence with grassroots community and business strategies and allies and mission statements/visions as well as international ones.  Just like David and the Nevada Youth Alliance.  

Of course, even the name, Nevada Youth Alliance, is somewhat of a misnomer.  It, like UPS, Gawad Kalinga and Civitan, is truly a Global Youth Alliance.  Then, again, everything local is global … and vice versa.

I hope that everyone will consider supporting this organization and its global mission, especially its upcoming event next Tuesday at Town Square.
