SERENDIPITY: phenomenon of finding valuable or agreeable things not sought for
It's when you least expect it!
When you discover something
You were not planning on.
You might think it's impossible
Then suddenly change IS possible.
Stumble into an encounter you
Did not know would lead to success.
But then being alive permits
What can happen to occur.
If you're out there making it
Able to do its thing, serendipity
will treat you with joy you'd caress.
Just be ready to be pleasantly shocked
And delightfully surprised when your dreams
Suddenly take on a whole new reality.
Alma Martinez has been asking from the start of our working together as partners for The ABC4All Legacy and the ABC4All Jamboree! to keep the talks short, 2 minutes or less! OK, I’m up for the challenge! But that does not mean that I’m going to meet it! Especially when there are 3 words that describe me – Rejuvenated, Facilitator and most recently, Connector – I figure that’s 6 minutes!
My name is Burt Danet, Founder of ABC4All. You can read all about ABC4All if you choose to. Don’t worry, I am not going to repeat what is written and what you can read. Many people these days can look up whatever they are interested in on the Internet.
What I will say is that working for 15 years, it has become obvious that it is possible that people can engage with one another in a mode of cooperation and collaboration that has led to our being here today. If you are here at this Jamboree it is because of all that has come before. If this is possible, then, so too, is it possible that the

What is the result? UNITY! Yes, the ABC4All CELEBRATION OF ONENESS Movement is upon us with thousands of such efforts globally, revolutions and protests in many countries and now The World We Want 2015 with the “soft launch” being done at this event at the request of Ravi Kakara, Expert Advisor Children & Youth from the UN working closely with Ntiokam Divine, Local ABC4All / Cameroon Co-Founder:

I must have been in the right place at the right time for 15 years, thanks to Serendipity. No one could even plan the sequence of developments that have taken place over the past 15 years, they happened because we are out there doing our thing, and it is possible for them to happen.
Our history is that we talk to 100 or even sometimes 1000 people, and 1 Angel emerges who volunteers with ABC4ll. 15 years later quite a group of self-collecting Angels have gathered and are working together to create better communities so far in 119 countries. What is being manifested is that “The World of A Better Community For All (ABC4All)” has taken hold and has expanded on a global basis, cutting across all the existing divides: political, religious, economic, class, caste, language, and yes, even warring factions, separately, have been relating to the concepts and the Principles of ABC4All. Anyone can read the principles and make up their own mind. No matter what the reaction, we know that CULTURAL UNITY IS POSSIBLE.
Ehsan knows: We are delighted that he chose to share his precious vision for the world with us tonight. He graces this event with talent that oozes out of every pore of his being.
Artist Ehsan Khanaman has taken over a decade to create 2000 individual paintings coming together to create half an acre sized painting of Unity, Peace and Love. It is planned to be launched and displayed on 2013 in a festival of Unity and Peace through Music, Art, Education, Charity and more in Irvine CA. Ehsan is working with ABC4All! What can ABC4All do? Provide MAXIMUM support for worthwhile causes anywhere in the world! Including Ehsan’s project that focuses on the core of what is necessary.
One country, Somaliland, unbeknownst to us, held an all day event they called, “Local ABC4All Community Empowerment Day,” and since then 22 educational scholarships have awarded every year. That, friends, is just one example to show what has been happening, over and over, so that now if you go to a search engine, put in the key words, in quotes, “what a mentor can do” ABC4All – you come up with many references, in the case of an ABC4All site search, over 70 such links to explore.
I am alive. I am here with all of you. Any of us -- any of the people of the world can do this.
1071 ABC4All Mentors in 119 countries are now part of the ABC4All Global Mentoring TEAM Project, and many of them are already acting on good ideas to help make their community better for all and many more can. Everyone present tonight can do so if there is interest in helping create a better world.
Now the Youth Advocate at the UN Secretary General’s Office is working closely with Divine Ntiokam, Local ABC4All / Cameroon Co-Founder to bring together youth groups all over the world to address “The World We Want 2015”. The mode is ACTION, not talking. Finally, youth are bringing together respective resources and networks to solve the Millennium Development Goals that are NOT being solved by 2015. ABC4All fits in here because we are ACTING, not talking.
The world can know that an INVITATION exists for any country in the world to come to Los Angeles and engage in an Economic Exhibition like the Country of Cote d’Ivoire, Africa did last July. ABC4All will gladly host and engage in talks about advanced technologies that address serious problems that 2 billion people face every moment of their lives – inadequate basics in living. Imagine drinking polluted water because you have no other choice. Disaster after natural disaster has been increasing the numbers that suffer. FIRST RESPONDERS are needed in so many locations in the world.
The ability to do FUNdraising and ZERO out with DOUBLED DONATIONS FOREVER to end the drinking of polluted water in the world is a goal that is doable. All that is needed is cooperation, not ignoring of those dying every second from water-borne illnesses. In good conscience, the world MUST not watch the next Olympics with billions of people watching their TVs while ignoring that every second so many die unnecessarily. ABC4All Mentors have proposed the ABC4All PULSE Games that can take place anytime, anywhere:
ABC4All Champions of Peace, Unity, Love, Sportsmanship, Empowerment: A Non-Commercial Opportunity for the demonstration of Excellence in Athletics while promoting the World of A Better Community For All (ABC4All)http://woa.abc4all.net
So from the perspective of this person, I have this to say to anyone who will listen:
"I will not allow myself to be deterred from representing the 2 billion people in the world without adequate water, food and shelter."
"Our actions speak louder than words, and when it comes to SAVING LIVES, action is all that matters.
"Every thought, every move being made is in the interest of how soon we can get to the position of being able to increase the number of people for whom we can SAVE LIVES and stop those who are being lost unnecessarily every second of every day - that is everything needed to determine the best course of action."
IMAGINE: The first country claims NO ONE is drinking polluted water! What will the rest of the world do?
Here are the mantras of ABC4All:
ABC4All Cares. ABC4All Shares. YOU decide.™
ABC4All: Achieve More. Spend Less.™
In the case of one partner with ABC4All, PowerSharing.com, with CEO Reggie Salazar here tonight you are learning that just by clicking on the site, each member earns money! Entirely consistent with the ABC4All Goal of helping people create “Never-Ending Self-FUNding4All.” Opportunities for this type of activity are offered with many more coming!
The BEYOND CATEGORY Band had it right when they took the 75-word description of ABC4All and created the ABC Theme Song that begins the words found in the 20-second video spot created by the JOYFUL NOISE Choir, thanks to Cynthia Speer who is sharing her PEACE Song with us tonight.
Cindy facilitated the ABC4All Message becoming one of 44 that were recorded, and so far it’s moved in hits up to position #3 out of 44, and if you all click and ask everyone you know to do the same, we’ll soon get to #1, at which point I will call again the CEOs of Time Warner Cable and Warner Brothers Entertainment and show them how we are promoting their movie, “JOYFUL NOISE,” all over the world! In our first conversations, they had said they were watching this film to see if it performs better than they expected! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MWYntqLZ1c4
It's simple, just like A-B-C
A better community
For all the world to see
Speaking of choirs, IMAGINE now if all the volunteer choirs all over the world shared information about the ending of the drinking of polluted water! You will find a proposal for just that possibility on the ABC4All website for doubling donations forever:
Choirs, Choruses, Chants, Capellas, Children
A Global Proposal
A Better Community For All (ABC4All)
"I am really excited about being a part of ABC4All TEAM. I believe we'll fulfill our purpose which is helping the people of the newest nation in the world. Saving lives is what our team is about." --Ger Duany.
MANDATED ACTION for What The World Needs Now: The FOREVER Campaign for Global Humanitarian Relief (FCGHR)
Every day is GHRD™
What happens when people listen to the "Voice of Reason" referenced in the book by Bryant McGill: IMPORTANT MUST READ for anyone wanting to help make it a better world for all.
ABC4All WorldSolutions™ for advanced technologies (water, food, shelter and many others)
So what is The Legacy of ABC4All? (2.5 minutes – sorry, Alma, I did my best!)
A Better Community for All (ABC4All) is a group of dedicated volunteers working at great self-sacrifice without funding from any source with intention to harness the power of the Internet to create sustainable opportunities that will lead to Self-FUNding4All.
Through this means any Local ABC4All Effort that is created in the world can bring resources together to create improvements in local communities.
ABC4All has been exposed to technologies that can, with appropriate support from every corner of the globe, lead to improvement in basic needs, including better water, ways to improve health maintenance and better agricultural practices. These advanced technologies are shared, in part, at ABC4AllWorld Solutions™
The unique and innovative opportunities being made available represent precedent-setting cooperation and collaboration among individuals, groups,nonprofits, NGOs, CEOs/companies throughout the world that utilize existing capabilities via an ABC4All distribution method, "Global Relief Distribution," in which there is no corporation that hoards money and gives little or nothing to charities.
Instead, there will be co-venturing with any/all nonprofits/NGOs in the world who want to cooperate with the derived wealth from the creation of the distribution of the advanced technologies shared across all the cooperating NGOs/nonprofits of the world.
The day we have, finally, a PIVOT SHIFT for the World.
You have witnessed this here tonight.
Messages can travel fast on a global scale now.
Here is the 140-character Tweet that each and every one of you here tonight can put onto a Twitter account:
The World of A Better Community For All: anyone in the world can participate with The Legacy of ABC4All and thereby create their very own Legacy for their loved ones and descendants!
THANK YOU ALL FOR BEING HERE and let the FUN begin as we engage in FUNdraising all over the world for worthwhile causes and expand the benefits and rewards that are available NOW.
