NEW YORK, Jan. 14, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- How can we change the horrific cycle dehumanizing African girls? Where do we turn to make a true difference in the world and no longer pay lip service to innumerable desperate causes?

In a word, the answer to these questions is Reelcause, Inc. On January 8, 2015 a collusion of professional athletes, models, and dignitaries descended upon the United Nations to celebrate the revolutionary solution to a myriad of the world's challenges. 

Reelcause (www.reelcause.com) is a breakout force in the crowdfunding/fundraising industry, structured to leverage emotional and thought-provoking videos and images to incite action. Through the use of high worth incentives including discounted retail purchase certificates, random prizes and multiple recognition opportunities, Reelcause channel holders and interactive participants are enticed to not only give, but also spread the word to their business and social media networks.

During the U.N. launch, national and global powers exchanged ideas, made plans and set goals.  In addition to a dynamic presentation by Reelcause's CEO Michael Jacobson, the afternoon featured an assemblage of dynamic speakers such as United Models for Peace Director of Communications, Courtney Hejl; CEO of the Brewer Group, Ambassador Jack Brewer; former NFL greats Drayton Florence and Tommie Harris; Immune Therapeutics' CEO Noreen Griffin and Her Excellency Dr. Joyce Banda.

The common thread woven throughout these presentations was, "What can we do differently to gain true interest for these globally impactful causes?"

Distinguished speakers delivered devastating statistics, which supported the immediate need to act now. 

Griffin conveyed disturbing information regarding healthcare in Africa. "Approximately 90% of the continent has little or no women's supportive healthcare and 92% of women with cervical cancer in Africa will die. (Immune Therapeutics) is working on drugs that will help, but right now is what they need is a simple, affordable solution to treating pre-cancerous lesions in women."

Dr. Banda echoed Griffin's impassioned pleas as she told stories about horrific injustices forced onto Africa's girls and women. Despite the number of improvements and changes Dr. Banda made in her country she said, "Africans are champions on the ground. The people in the villages know what to do, but problems are often covered up to outsiders.  Visits are always very hush, hush until one girl pulls a visitor aside and whispers that she is being abused."

While attendees were disturbed by the ongoing problems these foundations endure, they were also hopeful that Reelcause might be the solution to these insurmountable hurdles.

Going forward, the Reelcause online platform will support a vast number of nonprofits, entrepreneurs and global causes that will finally receive the attention and enthusiastic outpouring of aid necessary to change the world.
