Hello This is a story about an artist from Tampa and he wrote the attached song at the request of Brian Maker, the father of Leiliana Rose Wright, a 4 year year old little girl who was murdered by her own mother and her BF there in Dallas Texas. This weekend we had the honor of hosting Brian and his son Jayden here in Tampa for the release of this single. Holy Hills by Paradox. This project started about a month ago and we have created a bond between Paradox and Brian, and our entire team here at AON Productions. Here is the link to the tragic story of Leliana’s death. So you are aware, we are donating a large portion of the proceeds from this song to a charity of the families choice in Leiliana’s name. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to me by phone or email. I am sure that you will love this song and the story behind it. Thanks much, Mike Michael Larson Chief Executive Officer AON Productions +1-813-362-4995

Good Afternoon, We are Yemoja Foundation; a 501(c)(3) purposed to provide adequate and necessary resources to underprivileged individuals in Dallas and eventually, with your help, the World. “Yemoja”, comes from the ancient African Yoruba culture. Her name translates to “Mother Of Many Children”; she embodies the concepts of community, healing, and cyclical provision. This principal of equating what you receive from your community and in turn, giving it back to those around you. It is our vision to encourage all of Mother Earth's children to contribute to into this cycle and recognize that an individual's actions are as impactful to change as the entire collective. Our vision to raise this awareness amongst Dallas starts with our three-pronged system to supply resources that are pivotal to individuals who are ready and willing to help themselves and their communities. This mission is comprised of; Natural Nutrition and Holistic Healing We believe it is Human right to have access to balanced, non-processed, whole foods. This allows for a healthy foundation to be created for individuals to realign their focus to more important issues that face their families and communities. Education Tomorrow belongs to the youth of Today. It is our duty to educate, inform, and engage not only our own children, but all children globally for the benefit of Humanity’s evolution toward a sustainable, balanced, whole World. Self Realization/ Self Empowerment Awareness of the “Self” is the first step to recognizing the power that an individual holds to enact change for themselves and their community. We plan to initiate this process through providing sale domicile and, what we call, “Defeatist Deprogramming”. We will see our community banish perceived limitations, and allow our barriers to become pathways to brighter futures for everyone today, tomorrow, and years to come. All of our work that we are purposed to accomplish comes with many trials, errors, and ultimately, victories! Here is how You can help us… On June 8th 2019 at Cole Park, we will be hosting Uptown Dallas’s biggest event this Summer: Uptown Picnic At Cole Park! A family fun, FREE ADMISSION, festival style fundraiser for our inaugural project, Uncle Nebuchadnezzar's Mobile Garden, A Dallas first, ‘Uncle Neb’ will be travelling to the “Food Deserts” that plague over 40% of Dallas County (USDA, 2018). His dual-purpose starts with providing a delivery service for fresh, Organic produce and natural sundry items to the elderly, homeless, shut-in, and veterans of Dallas, and the surrounding areas. This project is also purposed to engage with our one of our trusted partners, Incarnation House, in order to utilize the underprivileged youth that they work closely with to give them internships with work they are proud to be a part of, along with keeping them on a positive track that breaks the cycle of negative behavior. Our planned attractions for our event on June 8th are to include Organic Boxed Lunches available with donation, $5000 in Raffle Prizes, Bounce House, An All-Ages Basketball Contest, Big Screen Karaoke Competition, and we are very excited to present… Uptowns First Local Business Market! 12 small, local vendors to be presented at our event in a tented market for all to come and see just how prosperous our community is. We are so excited to be hosting this event for Uptown Dallas to attend, enjoy, and get excited for what is to come of Dallas’s newest, and fastest growing Non-Profit. Ultimately, in order to make this a prosperous event for all of our sponsors, attendees, and board members, we need LOTS of people to show up and fill that park up! Our grassroots campaigning has brought plenty of attention, but we are hoping to partner with 97.9 Radio Station in order to blast the news of our FREE event to all of Dallas. We would be honored, and very grateful for any advertising you may be able to extend to our registered Non-Profit in order to make this an event that will greatly benefit the communities that your organization currently advertises to. We want to be sure that this event will create lasting memories for all who come to join us. Please let us know if you, or anyone you know may be able to help us in this effort to blast this event out to Dallas families. Thank you, Amal Hassan Yemoja Foundation
