PRLog - April 21, 2011 - Following the Run Across America for Hunger, Homelessness, Poverty and Community Service in 1993,  the unmet needs in 133 cities from Washington, DC to San Francisco, CA prompted the formation of Humanitarian Resource Institute,  in 1994. For close to 20 years, demographic analysis, unmet needs reporting and support of frontline service programs has remained the grassroots level objective in all 50 states and now, 192 UN member countries. It's been a long road, with a few struggles along the way, but the interfaith focus  regarding the suffering and afflicted, rich and poor, remains the same: "Do for others, what you would have others do for you, if you were in their shoes." -- H-II: Stephen Michael Apatow
Every family across America has been impacted by the collapse of the housing market, the loss of life savings and retirement accounts as we continue to watch an unemployment, underemployment crisis spiral out of control in our communities. Though many go along acting like everything's fine, the real deal is what is what we learn when we sit down with families, and grasp what's going on in their lives.
While the Humanitarian Resource Institute "Arts Integration Into Education" Initiative is working to support community assistance efforts across America, including the provision of resources to help families in need, we desperately need to restore the values of Honesty, Integrity, Truth and "The American Way." These attributes are what helped our grand parents survive the Great Depression, and are the key to rebuilding America today.
Help us spread the word, regarding the soundtrack "The American Way,"  on AirPlay Direct from the Album "Country Goes Global,"  available on iTunes. Proceeds from the album support relief efforts coordinated through Humanitarian Resource Institute and the United Nations Arts Initiative.
With the help of the arts and entertainment industry, we hope to reach every home, in every community, in every state, in every country.
But as we stand once again, the eagle will rise;
As we unite together, the world will recognize;
That the people in this country, are ready to fight;
One nation under God, established in His might;
Our nation will rally, our flag will fly high;
Over the land of the free and the home of the brave.
-- The American Way
