Business Leader Named Humanitarian of the Year by XBIZ - Seeks Donations to Feed 40,000 Through the Never Forgotten Foundation (NFF)
CYPRESS, Calif., Feb. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Steven H. Bryson, founder and CEO of Global Electronic Technology, Inc. (GET) and OrbitalPay, LLC, was honored by XBIZ with its first-ever Humanitarian Award at the organization's annual awards ceremony on February 10th in Hollywood, CA. During his acceptance speech, Bryson issued a challenge to other businesses to give back in meaningful ways that would make a difference in the world.
"For the past two years at GET, our staff did not dress up for the Christmas parties. Instead, we dressed down, rolled up our sleeves and fed the hungry at the Long Beach Rescue Mission," Bryson said to the thousands in attendance at the awards ceremony. "This past year, we provided 20,000 meals. I challenge all of you to help us double that this year."
Mr. Bryson funded the purchase of food for the 20,000 meals through his non-profit charity organization, The Never Forgotten Foundation. He then joined his staff in delivering the food to the hungry in the 27-foot-long truck he had rented earlier that morning to help haul the food to its destination.
"Writing a check is easy – if you are able to do it, you should," added Bryson. "The hard part is showing up and giving your time and effort. If we all get together and donate our money and our time, we can make the world a better place."
Bryson, who served in the 82nd Airborne Division, started the Never Forgotten Foundation in 2008 to provide funding and aid to children who have lost their parents due to the war. He has expanded its mission to serve the poverty-stricken and under-privileged in the world, starting first in local communities, but reaching beyond local boundaries to provide humanitarian assistance to areas facing disaster.
To donate money and/or time to help meet the challenge to provide 40,000 meals to the hungry this year, please go to the Never Forgotten Foundation (NFF) website at www.neverforgottenfoundation.com or call 888-775-1500.
