San Diego, CA, July 28, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- World-renowned speaker, author and peak performance strategist Anthony Robbins has partnered with the nonprofit group Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida to help feed local families in need.
Unleash The Power Within®, Anthony Robbins’ cornerstone event, is coming to Orlando, Florida November 1-4, 2012. For every ticket sold to the event, Robbins Research International will provide 40 meals to local families through a monetary donation to the Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida, with an overall goal of providing 120,000 meals. 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 these food banks 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.”
“More people than ever before are struggling to afford enough food in Central Florida. On their behalf, we are so grateful that Tony’s event will be helping our neighbors in need unlock their own potential by providing two important basics…food, and hope,” said Dave Krepcho, President and CEO of Second Harvest Food Bank.
