Oakley – Philanthropic Enterprise

( through audio/visual mediums)

Dear friends,

I wanted to take a moment and share a little bit about some of the things I am doing towards the benefit of myself and society.

As many of you know, I am a radio, television, and film major currently studying at University. Part of my vision in study and application is to communicate inspiring and motivational ideas through film and media. Of course, I also have some interest in the entertainment business, however, it is based solely on that of integration, unity, and discovery: not this mindless amusement we find coming out of Hollywood today.

With that said, I am also looking forward to using my passionate interest, talent, and abilities to aid local and one day national entities dedicated to the those in need on both local and global scales. My service would be based on non-for-profit motives and all donation towards a given project would be solely used toward the production of a high quality film that communicates the ideas, mission, and success of a given charitable organization.

Although I am still fairly young and have a lot of learning and experience ahead of me, it is one of my greatest hopes that this vision will be seen through by not only my personal means but by people like you who long to help and do something beyond what they normally do for the benefit of others.

I have one example of a recent project that I’d like to share with you all. It is a short introduction to a DVD I along with a young photographer created for a Pregnancy Crisis Center located in West Houston.

There is also a longer behind-the-scenes video for anyone interested in more information about the project and how it was put into action.

Finally, I would like to share that I will be in a meeting for another similar project for an organization called “The Success for Life Through Reading” program. They are dedicated to providing college aged volunteers to reach out to low-income families and preschooled children. Part of their activities is donating books and reading out loud to the kids. Later this afternoon we’ll be discussing a very important series of videos they want to produce for the program to help recruit, train new members, and inform parents of the importance of reading in early development and love for literacy. If you’d like to learn more about the program visit the following site:

I know there is a lot we can do together and am thoroughly excited to see what the future holds.

Thank you for your time and Blessings to you all.
