ADVOCACY HEALS U: 15 KEYS TO FAST TRACK RESULTS AND EMOTIONAL FULFILLMENT written by JONI ALDRICH with CHRISTOPHER JERRY submitted for a Pulitzer Prize
Now available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble online bookstores.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (Carlsbad, CA – 10-07-2015) – The unthinkable has happened. We all go through adversity at some point in our lives, but this is different. The rose colored glasses that can camouflage the truth are off. We may have a different viewpoint on family, health, security or even politics. It may or may not be front-page news. Maybe we have lost a child that will never return to our loving arms. Maybe we are proof positive that someone can survive pancreatic cancer. Maybe we offer food to the hungry because we were hungry, or shelter in the cold because we were homeless. Advocates are the catalyst for change around the world, and the voice for so many that may not have a voice.
“Our legacy does not end with the closing of the day or even with our final breath; it continues through infinite possibilities for hopeful tomorrows—one cause, one person at a time.” ~Joni Aldrich
Advocacy Heals U is the first book ever written on personal advocacy bringing it into a much-needed spotlight…FOR advocates and BY advocates Joni Aldrich and Chris Jerry, who have a combined twenty years of experience. They believe that, in this world of open borders, there has never been a better time to reach people around the world for a cause. In addition to sharing the crucial details from Chris and Joni’s own personal journeys, this book includes 95 other advocates and 58 foundations.
After his wife was diagnosed with cancer, Jack Scott said: “You don’t know what you don’t know until you know it.” Experience is one of the most valuable assets in life. Advocacy is a tradition that is as old as history itself. Often it comes from Events that we would never have chosen for ourselves.
Advocates help others who are blind to the pitfalls ahead before they step off the same cliff, or hold their hand along a similar pathway. Dedication through advocacy often starts with one of these mission statements:
“I will speak up for myself or someone else.”
“I can help others get through this.”
“I will support this cause and/or organization.”
“Other people need to know about this.”
“I don’t want any other family to go through this.”
“There should be legislation to prevent this.”
Social media and the Internet are powerful networking tools that you can harness into a call for action. Advocates are dedicated to networking from every angle to facilitate the ripple effect. This book will show you the way to fast track your results, because:
Unless They Hear It, Understand It, Recall It, and Support It…It’s Just Words
How does advocacy fit into healing?
The Event will leave you with a sense of profound loss of control. Advocacy allows you to take back some of the control you have lost.
The Event can happen repeatedly, leaving us always wondering when the other shoe is going to drop. Advocacy can help you move past the negativity, anger and doubt.
We believe that because we are good people that other people are essentially good; the reality is that isn’t true. Advocacy can help you build back faith in humanity.
