Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) November 29, 2012
World-renowned speaker, author and peak performance strategist Anthony Robbins has partnered with the nonprofit group the Los Angeles Food Bank to help feed local families in need.
Unleash The Power Within®, Anthony Robbins’ cornerstone event is coming to Los Angeles, CA March 21-24, 2013. For every ticket sold to the event, Robbins Research International will provide 60 meals to local families through a monetary donation to the Los Angeles Food Bank with a goal of providing over 180,000 meals through this fundraising effort. Anthony Robbins’ philosophy is “The secret to living is giving.” He believes, “There is an unbelievable gift in life when you can step out of yourself and help someone else. The partnership with the Los Angeles Food Bank gives people an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of families in need, while making a difference in their own lives at the same time.”
What began nearly 30 years ago as Robbins' individual effort to feed homeless families has now grown into the Anthony Robbins Foundation's International Basket Brigade, which feeds more than three million people in more than 56 countries every year. His foundation has also provided support and initiated programs in more than 2,000 schools, 700 prisons and 100,000 service organizations and shelters.
“I was 11 years old when a man I'd never seen gifted my family with a huge basket of Thanksgiving goodies we couldn't afford ourselves,” stated Robbins. “In that moment I came upon a new meaning—strangers care. Soon after, I created the Basket Brigade to bring hope and food to those who need it most.”
“We are pleased that Tony has chosen to work with the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank to positively impact hunger issues faced by so many families in our community,” said Michael Flood, President and CEO with the L.A. Regional Food Bank. “With one in six people food insecure in Los Angeles County, fans and followers of Tony Robbins can make a tremendous difference by attending Tony’s event.”
