ABC4All Dedication July 2007

ABC4All, in development since 1998, originally was called, "Partnerships for a Better Community (PBC)." Introduction to Co-Founder Robert "Bob" Chew, led to his suggestion for a name change to ensure placement at the top of the alphabet: ABC4All or "A Better Community for All" was born. From then until now, more than 9-1/2 years have passed.

Formal operations were launched during the period from July-September 2004,  with a dedication offered to ALL individuals who have been involved to bring into being a New Entity for the World.

Although it is not possible to acknowledge each and every person who has been part of the evolution of this effort, those involved know who you are, and to ALL of you profound appreciation is expressed here.

The assistance offered by so many led to the culmination, on September 13, 2004, of so many developments, including the simultaneous establishment of the original Foundation of A Better Community For All (FABC), which by necessity dissolved when the National Heritage Foundation was required to respond to the change in laws. For this reason, ABC4All is in transition as alternate plans are made to create another nonprofit entity to fulfill the vision into the indefinite future (Perpetuity).

The launch of the ABC4All Triple Giving Program (ABC4AllGGG) also has undergone transition and is being revamped to include 100% coverage of the world.

This dedication offers a tribute to, among so many who care, the following:

Robert "Bob" Chew, Co-Founder, whose creative mind and business acumen have been intimately involved in the development and implementation of the humanitarian effort represented by ABC4All concepts and under whose auspices, shortly following his achieving the status of Philanthropic Development Officer (PDO) for the National Heritage Foundation, the Foundation of A Better Community For All (FABC) was created on this date and subsequent to which he has created a context and environment of worldwide cooperation/collaboration among CEOs via his membership and then participation as staff of IBI Global and to

Barbara Stitt, Ph.D., President and Paul Stitt, M.S., CEO of Natural Ovens Bakery and the associated Nutritional Resource Foundation, Manitowoc, Wisconsin for their total dedication and mission to bring healthy nutrition into schools nationwide by 2012 and whose video documentary, “The Impact of Fresh, Healthy Food on Learning and Behavior 2004” presents a dramatic, moving demonstration, a standard bearer for CHEN4All, how simply changing the nutrition students receive in schools can lead to so many improvements across the board both academically and behaviorally and to

All additional members of the ABC4All Core Team (ABC4AllCT) who have contributed so generously of their resources and to the ABC4All Mentors joining the ABC4All Global Mentoring TEAM Project on the Taking IT Global web site whose simple function is to share the information about ABC4All across the globe and to all present and future "Dual Global Citizens (DGC)"who will, as Co-Directors of Save Children now and/or as Friends of ABC4All will help bring to the world opportunity which has never existed before to assist helping make it "a better community for all" wherever there is receptivity in the world and, to

PLUS all of the many, many artists, entertainers, singers, musicians, song writers, photographers, poets and other creativity contributors who have graciously provided permission to display their original work and finally, to 

The many, endless seemingly serendipitous, events which have occurred so often and which ultimately have made possible the ABC4All launch and all that has followed and that  inspired the original poem, Serendipity:

"...Just be ready to be pleasantly shocked
And delightfully surprised when your dreams
Suddenly take on a whole new reality.
Serendipity happens!"

Respectfully and gratefully,
