The 15th Anniversary Gala will be an amazing event.  It will be full of fun, friendship, and  inspiration.

I am very proud to support The National Inclusion Project.  It has been a joy to watch the organization grow for 15 years. It has established itself as one of the leading voices in the field of inclusion and works with many distinguished youth organizations.

The National Inclusion Project has worked with hundreds of programs, trained numerous staff members and leaders, and provided inclusive opportunities for over 50,000 children.   All of this in 15 years!  AND…with the help of each of you!!

This year, Clay Aiken, who is the co-founder of the National Inclusion Project, challenged us to attend the Gala this year. He said that if we  get at least 400 attendees to this year’s gala, he will perform the ENTIRE SET LIST from his

2004 INDEPENDENT TOUR!

Now, wouldn’t that be fun?

The National Inclusion said:

This will be an incredible evening of inspiration, fellowship, music and inclusion and with YOUR help, we can relive Clay’s debut album LIVE!

We need YOU to reach out to your friends, family, and social networks and make this our biggest Gala yet.

Once Gala registration opens, we’ll keep a tally of attendees so you can track our progress.

Don’t forget all proceeds go directly to the Project and our mission of making inclusion the expectation, not the exception.

I am ready to get my tickets…how about you?

If you are waiting to purchase Silver or Bronze packages, you can purchase them on  June 26th @ 12noon ET

This will be an incredible evening of inspiration, fellowship, music and inclusion and with YOUR help, we can relive Clay’s debut album LIVE!

Do you remember the Independent Tour?

 

It would be so much fun if we could sell out the tickets for the GALA!!

As always, all proceeds will be used to ensure children with and without disabilities can laugh, learn and play TOGETHER!

Hope to see you at the Gala!

Clay Aiken – A Talented And Versatile Young Man

The Summer of 2005…………….A wonderful time for fans of Clay Aiken. It was the summer of…

The JukeBox Tour

Running from July 27th to September 1st, the tour stopped at 26 cities and performed for sell-out and near sell-out crowds at all the stops.

One of the highlights of the tour was the Elvis Medley that Clay performed. He tricked us into believing he was playing the piano, slipped on blue shoes, caressed his mike, and flirted with Angela, Quiana and the audience.

The following video is the Elvis Medley from the tour. It really shows what a talented and versatile young man Clay Aiken is in concert.

 

Did you see the Jukebox Tour?

Clay Aiken – I Love You, Dad!

Did you know?

Sonra Louise Smart Dodd of Spokane, WA started the observance of the Father’s Day on the 19th of June, in 1910.

She wanted to express her thanks to her own father, who had reared her on his own, since the death of her mother. 

Her father, Henry Jackson Dodd celebrated his birthday in June, thus, she chose this month to celebrate the holiday.

I love these quotes about fathers!

My father gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person, he believed in me

~ Jim Valvano

When I was a boy of 14, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around.

But when I got to be 21, I was astonished at how much he had learned in seven years.

~ Mark Twain

My father used to say that it’s never too late to do anything you wanted to do.

And he said, ‘You never know what you can accomplish until you try

~ Michael Jordan

When my father didn’t have my hand . . . he had my back

~ Linda Poindexter

The only way I can describe [fatherhood]—it sounds stupid, but—at the end of How the Grinch Stole Christmas,

you know how his heart grows like five times? Everything is full; It’s just full all the time.

~ Matt Damon

Clay…

Wishing you a

Happy Father’s Day!

May it be filled with

lots of love,

lots of family,

lots of hugs,

and

lots of fun.

The talented SueReu shared a beautiful

Father’s Day video with us!

Clay Aiken – Eleven Questions Correct = A Million Dollars

In 2007, Clay Aiken  was in the studio, trying to be Smarter Than A 5th Grader.

Clay appeared during sweeps week in a celebrity edition of the show. All celebrities were guaranteed $25,000, but tried to win up to $1 million.

Each contestant was given eleven questions to answer correctly to win the million. It was no surprise to see Clay answering correctly for the first nine questions. He chose to walk away when he had some hesitation about the tenth question. He walked away with $300,000 for the Bubel-Aiken Foundation(The National Inclusion Project). Clay commented that the money would fund 30 summer camps in 2008.

Clay did very well. The following are the amounts won by all the celebrities during the week.

Clay Aiken 350,000
Miss America 2007, Lauren Nelson 175,000
Tony Hawk 175,000
Regis Philbin 175,000
Kellie Pickler 50,000
Billy Bush 25,000 (guessed and was wrong on the 300K question)

Sit back, get a cup of coffee and watch the fun video of Clay on the show. The video starts with a interview with Clay about the show, but ends with some snippets of the show.  The video shows quite a bit of the show!

 

It’s been a few years, but it still is fun to see this!

Clay is a smart man and I am glad he was able to make so much money

for the National Inclusion Project!

Clay Aiken’s Smile Always Makes Me Feel Better

June 15 celebrates National Smile Power Day.  Today is a day for everyone to share the power of the smile. When someone is smiling they lighten up the room, change the moods of others, and make things happier. A smiling person brings happiness with them. Smile lots and you will draw people to you.

A smile is so powerful, that it can:

  • Add years to your life
  • Make you a happier person
  • Make someone else a happier person
  • Change the mood for the giver and the receiver
  • Improve relationships
  • Send a great customer service message

Did you know? It’s easier to smile than to frown. A smile uses fewer muscles.

Clay Aiken has one of the best smiles around. 

His smile always makes me feel better.


Now, don’t you feel better?
