Positioning 10 Great Projects to Make Positive Change In America

We have reached out into our personal communities and you have heard our call to support our causes. All 10 of them. We are the Big September 10, (bit.ly/big-S10) and we have joined together in purpose with our strength and intentions to win some of Pepsi’s money. For those who still don’t know, Pepsi is giving away their Superbowl advertising dollars to community minded people with great ideas of impacting communities in positive ways. 32 grants are given each month, totaling 20 million annually. You get to vote on the winners! Everyone gets to vote, from your computer and your cell phone!

We are asking everyone to take the little bit of time each day to exercise your ability to vote every way you can. We appreciate that. If you are not voting – please consider to support us all so that all 10 in our coalition can take these grants and do something really good in our communities. 9 out of 10 are in winning spots, let’s get POP Arts into position and we’ll all be there!

This is what Studio 33 will do with the $50k:

Complete Phase one of the Studio Earth Signature Series that assists 11 local charities with an annual revenue stream. For details of our project, visit our Page, http://www.refresheverything.com/creativefundingthroughart

This is just the beginning of a much bigger vision for the Studio Earth Initiative. I’d like to share that vision with you now, but first, here are the 3 ways you can vote to support the charitable mission that reflects a true, creative social enterprise – potentially supporting the community with a consistent and sustainable revenue stream.

There are 3 ways to VOTE and all votes count!

Once  Phase One of  Studio Earth is complete:

We move on to phase two, in 2011 we will start on the next 11 pieces that support regional and national charitable causes that need critical funding assistance. These organizations can be sisters to the organizations already being supported, so that the process of development can and should go rather quickly and smoothly. It’s mostly about the marketing strategies that will be used to implement this. Moving on to the next phase in 2012, phase 3 will then support international organizations. Our vision for Studio Earth is global my friends. We want to see the end of all suffering in the world and this is our attempt to do our part to make the world a better place.

Now while we are developing phase 3, we are also planning on incorporating all craft mediums to expand our market while supporting local artists and craftspersons. That is where the Studio Earth Production Center comes in and what we are really working towards. When I had this vision (many years ago), I was being guided to get started by making a difference in my own back yard, which I think I’ve done at least in some small way with Studio 33. My community knows I am sincere in my efforts to support community. The Haywood County Chamber of Commerce gave me an award in 2006  for $10,000, when Studio 33 began. I’ve put that money to good use and have grown my business to now support this vision. I have many followers. You are all voting for Studio 33 and hopefully our partners too, so that this vision will one day be realized.

It is appropriate now to say, that the Studio Earth Production Center seeks to nurture the partnership that is has with Haywood Community College, (HCC) and their Professional Crafts Curriculums. Here the Studio Earth Production Center then becomes a landing pad for the students graduating from these programs, which by the way, are internationally known and highly regarded for the quality of education that is given. These paid internships will be available to graduating students who seek to stay in Haywood County to further develop their skills. When I graduated from the program in 1987, I waited on tables for a long enough time to purchase necessary tools and equipment. I did what I had to, but honestly, would have jumped at an opportunity like the one that exists in our vision. Now, as HCC begins construction on the new Fine Art and Craft Education Center, it is a confirmation that the vision of Studio Earth may be realized, and the visionary in me is both excited and inspired. What is more exciting is that we have found national partners to join in with – to seek grants to help us realize our goals. All we are asking for from those of you reading this, is for you to vote, every and any way that you can, as often as you can. By dedicating your votes to help us change our world, you are being a part of the change we all want to see, a very important part, because without your votes, this might not be possible. So Thank you , I mean really, THANK YOU!  Everyone!!! For believing in us all and taking the time to vote. Together we can do this.

Thanks for reading! I know this was long, but it was time to tell you all where Studio 33 has gone. We have walked into the future by manifesting a path we all can walk together on.

Bless you all and THANK YOU for voting!

Diannah Beauregard and The Big Sept. 10.

Here are our mission statements:

STUDIO 33: Text 100505 to 73774

Studio 33 has developed a plan for a creative social enterprise that supports many worthy charities. The Studio Earth Initiative begins with a signature series line of jewelry that is uniquely paired with a nonprofit organization, produced, marketed and sold to offer a generous 30% of retail profit to the charity it supports. The project continues to evolve in phase two and three, unfolding a vision of a production art center that produces yet, another triple bottom line as the creative social enterprise embraces all craft mediums supporting community, artists and charitable causes worldwide.

SKIP PROGRAM: Text 100847 to 73774

The idea of The Skip Program grew out of a family tragedy, and Lisa Johnson knew she had to do something to keep her Uncle’s spirit alive and celebrate his life. Skip was an avid sports fan, and Lisa knew that the inheritance left to her by her Grandmother would be well spent on creating a program that gives underprivileged children the opportunity to play sports and participate in community activities. Lisa is following in her Grandmother’s footsteps, making a positive difference in her community, by helping make the dreams of underprivileged children come true.

GOT BRAGGING RIGHTS: Text 100511 to 73774

GBR is determined to HEAL THE NATION through positive action. Hit by a string of personal tragedies and recognizing the increasing negativity in our lives today, Keala Tyler (GBR founder) became determined to bring back the balance in our lives. To celebrate the great things that people are doing and to promote more positive influence in the world, GBR is creating a rewards & recognition program for student role models who have been inspirational in their efforts to improve themselves, their community or the lives of others.

POP!: Text 100843 to 73774

POP! (Performing Arts Outreach Program) focuses on helping and empowering at-risk children in desperate need.  Using a curriculum that enforces core life lessons through the arts, POP! teachers reinforce respect, self-efficacy, and responsibility.  Dr. Nancy Coppola has been working with at-risk-youth for 5 years, and through the POP! program teaches our younger generation that they have the power to take the future into their own hands.  POP!’s goal is to change the world view of our children into one of HOPE.

LAY A FOUNDATION OF FITNESS: Text 101377 to 73774

Lay a Foundation of Fitness is aiming to stamp out childhood obesity in our community.  So many kids lack physical activity and we want to provide the best opportunities in our community for kids to come and have fun exercising.  More and more fast food joints are going up and our foods are being packed with harmful ingredients to make them convenient so we need to do our part to help kids start healthy and stay that way.  The Pepsi Grant would help fund the ideas we have to give kids a fighting chance at being healthy for a lifetime.

Lynn Munter for Avalon: Text 102340 to 73774

Avalon Educational Institute is a multi-arts school bent on increasing the general credibility and accessibility of the arts to the overall community. As the world’s first Accountabiltiy-Based school, Avalon’s students, teachers, and administrative staff are all responsible for the maintenance and running of it’s completely volunteer-based programming. Lynn Munter, Avalon’s most active student volunteer, put forward this month’s Refresh project for Avalon in her continuing efforts to help the school and enhance her working knowledge of program administration and development.

KIDS’ CO-OP: Text 100216 to 73774

Kids’ Co-op is committed to enriching the lives of Las Vegas children and strengthening their families through its developmentally appropriate Preschool and Kindergarten programs, through parent education, and through community service. Kids’ Co-op is a joint effort of parents who govern the school, and the director and teachers, who oversee the educational programs. Parents at Kids’ Co-op learn to efficiently nurture social, physical, emotional, and intellectual development of their children.

P.A.W.S. OF MICHIGAN: Text 100506 to 73774
P.A.W.S. of Michigan is dedicated to lowering the needless euthanasia of companion animals and to do this has begun efforts to open a low cost, high quality, high volume spay neuter clinic. Daily shelter work with a seemingly endless inflow of animals and a local euthanasia rate as high as 90% made us realize that we needed to take a proactive approach to the problem. These clinics are proven to be successful with over 70 clinics open across the country who have seen decreases in local euthanasia rates as high as 70%. Once open this clinic will save thousands of animal lives every year!

REVHS: Text 102048 to 73774

The REV Wildcat Sculpture Garden & Public Art project will invite students, teachers, and the community to experience artwork up-close on a daily basis around the campus. Neglected outdoor spaces on campus will be cleaned up and assessed for Public Art placement. An annual outdoor Community Festival of Arts will also be established complete with a Chalk Art Competition among area schools. The purchase of easels, awnings, and other reusable art equipment would guarantee art education for all for many more years.

REDLANDS BOWL: Text 102320 to 73774

Redlands Bowl is host to the Summer Music Festival held each summer during the months of July and August. This is a fine arts extravaganza with twice weekly performances of dance, drama, opera, ballet, orchestra and other musical productions. The festival has been continuous for 87 years without an admission charge. The festival is made possible by strong community involvement, patrons, local business sponsors, endowments and grants. The festival brings high quality performances to all in the region without regard to economic, social, ethnic or religious position.

Voting Strong From our New Location

And for those of you wondering where Studio 33 is going…..

It is now September 2. We have entered the Pepsi Arena for the fifth month running. It’s hard to believe, but sometimes it takes a lot of effort and time to produce a desired result. I have always said that nothing really good every happens in a hurry. Sometimes it takes being in the right place, as in Feng Shui, the correct placement of things.

I’ve talked about about the significance of the recent move in my last page posted. Being an artist, it is important to feel comfortable and safe in your surroundings, and it is equally important to be in an environment that supports an inspired and creative approach to your craft. Well that is where I now am. Not that the retail – downtown location and darling little stone house wasn’t good. It was great. My business really blossomed there in spite of a crippled economy. I just outgrew the little space and needed to get on with the reason I went to town in the first place. To realize the Studio Earth Initiative .

So here we are headed for the winning of a $50k grant from Pepsi, a grant that will help fund the vision that will eventually develop into a production arts center. This is a win win win plan that fuels our economy, supports nonprofits, employs graduating students from our nationally acclaimed Professional Crafts Curriculums at Haywood Community College, (HCC) all while beautifying the world at large. People  come from all over to buy fine art and craft in western NC.  It’s a 206.5 million dollar industry here. Studio 33 has developed a creative social enterprise that is cutting edge.

That’s the vision in a nutshell. It has been a vision for many years, and the potential for it to unfold is so real to me now. Phase one is a little behind schedule, but we never anticipated five months in Pepsi. And while HCC will build a new Fine Art Center (I am so trusting), I can look into the future of that to clearly see the artists coming out of the programs wanting to stay here because of how important fine art and craft is in our community. With a Studio Earth Production Center, there will be paid internships to produce quality art, not just made in America, but made in Haywood County, North Carolina, USA.

So back to the reason for this post…..

Your votes, your daily, dedicated votes are the ingredient we need this month to sustain our position in the lead. We are excited and honored to be partnered with a group of carefully chosen projects to support a winning team. In Pepsi, you can’t win a grant without a team and Studio 33 is very honored to be part of the best team there is.

So here is your task my friends. You need to vote. We’ve done the hard part. You have ten votes per day, and you need to cast all ten. Here’s how:

  • Vote daily using the multi-project link for our group Sept 10.
  • Vote daily in Facebook, with your profile, go to my page – send a friend request. Find me here in FB.
  • Vote daily text messaging if you have an unlimited text message plan on your cell phone. Here are the numbers you need
  1. Studio 33 – 100505
  2. Skip Program – 100847
  3. Paws of Michigan – 100506
  4. Foundation of Fitness – 101377
  5. POP Arts – 100843
  6. Multi-Arts School – 102340
  7. Got Bragging Rights – 100511
  8. Redlands Bowl – 102320
  9. Redlands E. Valley High – 102048
  10. Kids Co-op – 100216

Thank you all again, from the depths of our hearts, for sharing in our visions by supporting us with your votes. Your votes can help to change the world we live in.

Sincerely and in Service,

Diannah Beauregard, founder

For those of you wondering where Studio 33 has gone:

The move to a location that will facilitate the production center for the Studio Earth Signature Series is now complete. After unpacking more than a hundred boxes, the studio is functioning and I am ready to get back to work. Meanwhile, since we coasted the month of August in Pepsi Refresh, we are gearing up and calling out a voting alert to everyone.

With only 2 days left for August, we need to increase support for our partners and help them get their grants this month. I am calling on everyone in the community to help us prepare for our position in Pepsi Refresh for September, by voting on line for  Studio33&Friends and text message from your cell phones if you have that function. These last few days and the first few days of each month are so critical. Each month is a little tougher, and we want to win this. Your votes – your dedicated votes to all of our partners as well, will make this happen. Please start voting these text votes now, and all through September. We will provide a new list on Sept. 1. We will keep you updated as often as possible.

Text message to 73774, using just the following #’s. You don’t have to type in the project name.

  • Studio 33  100505
  • Foundation of Fitness   101377
  • Multi-Arts School 102340
  • Paws of Michigan 100506
  • Redlands E. Valley High  102048
  • Redlands Bowl 102320
  • Paws of Michigan  100506
  • Pop! 100843
  • Skip Program 100847

Thank you all for your continued support. It is all so greatly appreciated and because of you, we will get this grant and move forward quickly with our plan to assist many nonprofit organizations in the community.

Please read the latest blog page for more detailed information about Studio 33 and the Studio Earth Initiative, our recent move and plans for the community.

August Updates for Studio 33

Posted August 5, 2010 by studio33diannah
Categories: involving community and non-profits, Pepsi Refresh Everything, Social Enterprise, Uncategorized

We are in the heat of the summer and there is much going on for Studio 33. Many of you reading this post are supporting our efforts to secure the Pepsi Refresh grant of $50K to help many non-profits in our community. This has been a roller coaster ride, (a very long one) and we are still in the coaster car. On a personal note, I am in the throws of relocating the studio to help facilitate this project so therefore have very limited time this month for networking. This is where Studio 33 depends on the strength and support of the community and the nonprofits to engage and support this collective effort to enrich our community.

For those unaware of the glitches in Pepsi’s website, be aware now. The first few days of every month are unusual and the rankings are never stable until the 4th or 5th day. However, it is important for people to keep voting regardless. Studio 33 needs  the community to continue to vote daily if you are in support of our project to assist non-profits with creative funding. We cannot do this without your help. It appears that we are currently #21. We need to get into the top ten position over the coarse of the next week which means we need everyone voting daily and helping to spread the word.

After 3 plus months of rallying local support and forming strategic Pepsi project partnerships, we have learned much. The important piece of information is how many votes are needed and where are they coming from. Our project partners, referred to as our “Alliance” generate the majority of the votes that we need to get close to our goal. If we could increase the number of votes generated in our community by two or three thousand, I think we could surely win this. Each month that number increases, so we should work on making a win happen this month.

Regarding the  move to a new location – this week. The new location was chosen to allow us to carry out our plan to produce the product line of the Studio Earth Signature Series. It has been the plan all along, one that has been delayed because of the time and energy spent on Pepsi Refresh. We never thought that it would take three months, now four months, or perhaps longer. Being so close and at one point in the lead for this money keeps us in the race. This is a grant that will benefit many.

Studio Thirty Three is extremely grateful for the unwavering support that many of you have given to this cause. We have seen many of you vote and promote and dedicate time and energy to increase our local support. We have gotten great coverage from our local newspaper, The Mountaineer, who has been instrumental in telling the story of our social enterprise and how it supports our local community. To sum this up:

  • Studio 33 is moving to a new location that will allow us to work more effectively on this and other projects.
  • We need everyone to keep voting daily to help secure this grant that will provide funding for Studio Earth and many local non-profits. See earlier posts about this.
  • There are 3 ways you can vote and all votes will count, updated on our earlier “How to Vote” Post.
  • Scroll just below to see Text Message Voting, Facebook profile and multi-project links.
  • Studio 33 needs a total increase of votes from the community in amounts of two to three thousand daily.
  • All non-profits that benefit from the shared proceeds can adopt similar promotional strategies and campaigns as Studio 33 did to acquire a dedicated pool of voters to help win this grant.
  • Win-win-win strategies succeed when everyone does a share of what needs to be done to achieve the goal.

Thank you all for your continued support. Please feel free to contact Studio 33 if you have any concerns or questions, but please also understand our limitation right now because of our move this month.

Getting Involved Now

Posted July 6, 2010 by studio33diannah
Categories: involving community and non-profits, North Carolina vote local, Pepsi Refresh Everything, philanthropy, Social Enterprise, Studio 33 Jewelry, Studio Earth

The last post made regarding Studio 33’s  position for the $50K Pepsi grant was published on July 2nd, just before the holiday weekend. We do hope that everyone had an enjoyable and safe Fourth of July. This is an urgent update.

Studio 33 has remained diligent and focused for this final month in what appears to be a very competitive and challenging contest for a grant to do good in the community. Each month, the competition grows more fierce than before. This blog tells what we’ve learned, what everyone in Haywood County needs to know and what Studio 33 is hoping for.

Studio 33 has been able to get close and even into a leading position with the help of those of you who are voting, but also largely because of the internal support we have acquired from our grassroots coalitions of other projects seeking grants to do great things in their own communities. That is how and why we have developed lists of multi-projects and encouraged you to vote for our partners. Up until now, this was a challenge to many of you for a number of reasons, time being the biggest factor. Bogged down with pages taking forever to load, it is no surprise that many voters turned  away.

We have solved that problem! In this blog are multi-project links that take you quickly and directly to one single page that allows you to vote for ten pre-selected projects, including Studio 33. In less than 1 minute you will be able to vote  for all the projects we are asking you to support. These projects are all noble causes that are helping us all by voting, so your vote in return is a gesture of gratitude. After all, they are voting for You! Of course, you may have other projects that you want to seek out and support, or maybe you want to help support some local NC projects, which to that end, I have already organized for you in our multi-string link! Studio 33 has basically made it very easy for all of you now to do your part. It’s time for Studio 33 to take the back seat and give you – the community of Haywood County, the helm.

The back seat for Studio 33 means being a jeweler. I have much work to catch up on as a result of the time I have personally spent designing this spectacular Studio Earth piece for you. Everyone likes our idea of helping many nonprofits and now  it is up to all of you to implement your own promotional plans to get people voting. That is the job that you are required to do as participants in this social enterprise.

You all have bases. You have a board, you have members and you have supporters. Some have more than others. Some of you have websites. You can put links on your website. Some of you have paid staff. They should all be voting too! Most all of you have some way in which you can promote this idea NOW, to motivate people to vote. Because of the stiff competition, Studio 33 is going to need thousands of collective votes from this community to get back into the lead, and this is what we are counting on and, hoping for. If you want us to help you raise money annually with a significant and sustainable source of revenue, than we need you to get everyone who supports you voting.

Here is How to Vote:

I am going to work now, it is the last minute, but I have promised a special piece for Sarge’s Animal Rescue Fundraiser on Thursday. Sarge’s Animal Rescue Foundation – whose mission is to save healthy, adoptable animals in the Haywood County North Carolina Animal Control facility.

Yours in service, I remain,
