He first starting attending the IFC almost a decade ago. Paul Amadi, director of fundraising at Diabetes UK and chair of the IFC Advisory Panel, said: “The IFC run by the Resource Alliance is a superb opportunity for fundraisers to enhance their skills, to learn new techniques that will help make their campaigns more successful and to strengthen their connections across the globe. Aside from the great workshops and master classes, the superb networking is another reason to attend – not to mention the much needed opportunity for hardworking charity professionals to let their hair down.”Kyla Shawyer, Interim CEO of the Resource Alliance, said: “Now in its 35th year*, the IFC is the key event on the global fundraising calendar. We are delighted to have Paul leading the IFC advisory panel into 2015 and look forward to the exciting breadth of sessions he and the other panel members are developing.”The announcement about Paul’s appointment comes at the same time as the process opens for applications to deliver Masterclasses and workshops at IFC 2015. Fundraisers from around the world are invited to submit ideas for presentations based on their own experiences. Paul Amadi said: “There is a lot that international audiences can learn from national fundraising campaigns, particularly those that focus on fundraising from the few, such as major donors, and those which use a multi-track, integrated approach. Therefore we encourage fundraisers from across all disciplines and all causal areas to apply.” He added: “Being a speaker at the IFC is a fantastic experience. Not only is it a great opportunity for fundraisers to share their learnings with their peers, but it also raises their individual profile and allows them to network with the great and the good of the global fundraising community.”

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 28 settembre 2014

imagesMonsignor Robert J. Vitillo, Geneva delegate to the United Nations for Caritas Internationalis, departs Friday 26 September for Liberia to assist with strengthening the Caritas response to the Ebola crisis. Caritas is the worldwide Catholic humanitarian aid network.Msgr. Vitillo has extensive experience with major health crises, having worked on the Church’s HIV and AIDS response for more than 25 years.In Guinea, Sierra Leone, and Liberia, Caritas networks and local Church groups that have worked on HIV prevention are now also reaching villages and remote dioceses with public health information about Ebola. These efforts also help to prevent stigma, discrimination, and misinformation about this major health challenge.“Any major health crisis puts a strain on already weak health care systems. We’ve seen that with HIV and AIDS over the years,” says Msgr. Vitillo. “Caritas members on the ground are now educating people to prevent the spread of Ebola and providing other support, like food assistance and help for orphans, widows, as well as those who have recovered from the disease.”

Capri Watch

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 28 settembre 2014

Capri Watch (5)Le immagini dell’orologio simbolo dell’isola azzurra hanno letteralmente occupato gli spazi della metrò di Milano. La griffe caprese di oggetti di lusso ormai conosciuta in tutto il mondo rimanda la sua immagine da centinaia e centinaia di impianti con i volti noti dei suoi testimonial. Veronica Maya, la brillante conduttrice televisiva e Fabio Fognini, il numero uno del tennis italiano che impugna la racchetta sui campi da tennis di tutto il mondo portando al polso un particolare modello di Capri Watch in edizione limitata creata apposta per il campione. E la maxi operazione di immagine, ideata da Asperula Stellina, la maison caprese che produce il Capri Watch, è stata accolta dal pubblico milanese, migliaia e migliaia di persone che attraversano gli spazi del metrò, con grosso entusiasmo e curiosità. E il nome di Capri con i suoi simboli addirittura fa da sfondo a numerosi “selfie” o foto scattate con i cellulari. Un successo che è stato confermato dai rilievi effettuati dacapri un’importante agenzia milanese che ha comunicato ai titolari dell’azienda Silvio ed Alba Staiano che dai dati in loro possesso è emerso che “in tutta la comunicazione pubblicitaria indoor e outdoor su Milano, Capri Watch è risultato essere l’unico marchio di orologi che è attivo nell’intera città”. “Un risultato che premia il nostro impegno” hanno dichiarato i due imprenditori isolani, che in agosto avevano già sperimentato l’operazione a Venezia dove erano stati installati gli impianti retroilluminati su tutti gli imbarcaderi della città lagunare, riscuotendo un grande consenso. Dopo Milano è al vaglio degli esperti di comunicazione la scelta di un’altra importante città italiana che sarà invasa dalle immagini luminose dell’orologio Capri Watch che è diventato un’icona nel campo del lusso griffato Capri.

Indovina chi viene a cena?

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 28 settembre 2014

ProfughiUna proposta per vincere l’insofferenza verso gli stranieri: ospitarli presso le famiglie romane, con rimborso di 30 euro al giorno. “Se il proponimento non fosse vero, si potrebbe pensare a una battuta umoristica, una vignetta, una boutade e invece, ministero dell’Interno e Roma capitale stanno riflettendo sul serio, cercando di mettere in atto tale insensato piano, finanziato con i soldi dei contribuenti. Non è così che si risolve il problema immigrazione, anzi si incentiva”. Lo sostiene il presidente di AssoTutela Michel Emi Maritato. “In tempi di crisi delle famiglie sembra quasi una provocazione, un invito a mantenersi dando rifugio a un immigrato, magari rifugiato, pensando di fargli del bene. E’ umiliante e vergognoso, sia per i cittadini che per i migranti. Come si può pensare di sostituire i criticati centri di accoglienza con le famiglie? – incalza Maritato – Ė pura follia. Invece di risolvere il problema alla radice, con politiche internazionali di programmazione e prevenzione, si scarica tutto sulle spalle dei cittadini, magari attratti dalla magra elargizione statale e costretti, con il ‘ricatto’ dell’obolo, ad accettare una condizione che potrebbe creare molti più problemi di quanti non ne risolva. Il ‘buonismo’ d’accatto non ha mai giovato a nessuno. Piuttosto si facciano avanti coloro che predicano bene e razzolano male, sostenendo la bontà dell’integrazione senza fornire strumenti perché questa si realizzi”, conclude il presidente di AssoTutela.
