THE BIBLE An an epic 10-hour mini-series that will bring the Bible into homes worldwide 3.3.13. on TV and on DVD in April
Television’s highly-acclaimed producer, Mark Burnett (The Voice, Survivor, The Apprentice), and his wife, Roma Downey (Touched by An Angel) are bringing the most widely-read book of all time to life on the screen, with breathtaking beauty and the use of dramatic live action and cutting-edge CGI technology.
“We feel this is the most important project we have ever undertaken,” said Mark and Roma. “Regardless of one’s belief system, no book has impacted humankind more than the Bible. Its influence on politics, culture, literature, art, music, philanthropy and education is unequalled.”

2016 RECOMMENDS THE WISH FOR OUR HEROES CHARITY
Military life is difficult – men and women selflessly serve our nation, while working for little pay, putting their life on the line, and dealing with the secondary affects that can tear families apart. WISH for OUR HEROES wants to provide resources to the “average” military member, in order to make their deployments a little easier, and to improve the quality of their family lives while home or during deployment. If we can put a smile on the faces of our military members or their loved ones, or give them a small break from the trials and tribulations of their daily lives, then we are doing our job.
One of the biggest things that sets us apart from other charities is our ratio (admin & fundraising costs divided by total revenue). The gold standard for charities is to operate at 90%, meaning 10% goes to administrative and fundraising costs, and the remaining amount goes where funds are truly needed. Most of the better-known charities realistically operate at 70-80%, so up to 30% of the funds they bring in, is actually distributed other places - salaries, elaborate events, ad campaigns, etc. We operate at 95%, which is unheard of, particularly for a young organization.
