GATE is a 501c3 charitable organization and community that recognizes the vital and expanding role media and entertainment play in creating our lives. We work towards having an impact on the key influencers in the industry to develop and distribute more positive, uplifting content.
"The media is one of the most important influences in our culture that affects how people think and feel. Both consciously and unconsciously, people emulate what they see in entertainment and media. Why not change the message so people can live vicariously through identifying with and emulating positive behaviors and experiences? We have an opportunity and a responsibility to build the world we envision through these mediums and with names that people will listen to. It is the most direct, powerful way to reach people, make a difference and create lasting change.” - Wendy Newman, M.A., Executive Director
(In this photo: just as Eckhart was about to go on stage, Jim whispered to him, "How about I go out as you and then you come out as me?" And there you have Jim as Eckhart and Eckhart as Jim! Transformational improv!)

ROCK AGAINST TRAFFICKING
Rock Against Trafficking is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation, established exclusively to amplify the power of music and celebrity around the world to generate the resources and awareness necessary to end human trafficking.
Founder: Gary Miller
Award winning Grammy Artists and Superstars have come together to raise money and awareness as they share the stage to stomp out human trafficking.. The first project covers the music of Sting and The Police on Rock Against Trafficking's premiere compilation album, "Set Them Free."
Gary Miller is an English music producer and songwriter with a list of credits that includes Katy Perry, Andrea Bocelli, Donna Summer and Elton John. Gary produced Cher’s quadruple platinum Believe album and David Bowie’s “comeback” album, Heathen, which ended up selling over 2 million copies.. Gary's genius production talents led to the idea of a compilation album dedicated to Rock Against Trafficking.
20 to 30 million people worldwide are being trafficked, including a huge number of children and adults from the United States. It is said to be a $30+ billion industry. We are heartbroken and are on a mission to change this.
To transform. This can be defining a new model of happiness, success and fulfillment by uplifting and empowering people to live radically purpose driven lives. In this particular film (on left), we started a conversation about compassion and peace for all. Isn't that where it all begins?
Contributors to films we are involved with include: The Dalai Lama, Arianna Huffington, Tony Hsieh (CEO, Zappos.com), Jack Canfield, Alanis Morissette, John Mackey (Co-CEO, Whole Foods), Tony Robbins, Blake Mycoskie (CEO, TOMS Shoes), Bob Proctor, Casey Simpson, Wendy Newman (she sounds familiar!), among others . . .
Admissions is an award winning short film that tells a transformational tale about what it takes to find lasting peace. We garnered exposure, e.g., 80 million households in the Middle East; we developed a multi-media book and gift of peace, a.k.a. a free screening of Admissions; and we tied in a campaign via the U.N. to get a billion signatures to enact The Global Resolution for the Establishment of Infrastructures to Support the Culture of Peace. Among other little things.
Let's face it, entertainment and media are the way to reach the masses. Yet once you reach them, you have to educate and take action to create sustainable change.
SHARE YOUR IMPACT
Projects that give people a voice through the use of simple images, stories, videos and social media, to connect, share, and have an impact on one another and the world.
Peace Angel: The departed Rafael Bejarano
Team: Wendy Newman, Innertaining Media, Proctor Gallagher, & The UN's International Day of Peace
Share Your Impact launched with the UN's International Day of Peace by utilizing a tragic situation and turning it into love and forgiveness. Within 48 hours, an 1100 person Facebook page reached more than 80,000 people through this one image. Social media engagement was 400 million, with awareness at more than 630 million.
Rafael Bejarano, the departed peace ambassador, was killed by Egyptian military in what is being described as an accidental shooting, mistaking the lunching tourists on a spiritual mission for a camp of Islamist militants operating in the area. The error killed more tourists than any terrorist attack in recent years. Rafael’s family asked that instead of focusing on the violence, to focus on the possibility that love is a healing force. Rafael died suddenly and painlessly while dancing and celebrating life. He was committed to awakening the love in every heart he encountered; he would not want this event to generate hatred and violence.
Share Your Impact gives everyone a voice to connect, to heal, to transform, to inspire. Let's unite as humanity. #shareyourimpact today!
