E-Magazine - Voices and Venues

Voices & Venues is a publication of
"Speak Out for A Cause".  I developed this project in response to the urgent need of funding for small organizations serving the home and food challenged and who didn't qualify for grant money.
100% of the speakers payments went directly to the organizations.  It was a way for me to volunteer my talents and support the local community.
