The Ike Foundation: Take A Kid Fishing


Name: Mike Iaconelli  
 
Describe your profession: I fish professionally. When I say that, most people think of commercial fishing like what you see on Nat Geo. But I’m a bass tournament angler. My job really has two parts. The first is actually competing in bass tournaments all across the country. Like golf or tennis, I have to compete against other top-ranked professionals in the world. The second part of my job is representing and promoting various brands and the products they produce.

What social causes are most important to you?
I have a few, but youth fishing and fishing awareness are my top two.

What social causes are most important to you? I'm all in for equal rights for women which will still do not have in the United States -- the Equal Rights Ammendment is needed to protect women from sex discrimination.

What charity do you support?Alfalit, it offers programs in literacy, basic education, preschool, health, nutrition, and community development to the poorest  in Central America, South America, the Caribbean, Africa, Portugal, and the United States.

Why do you have a passion for this one in particular? Is there a personal tie?As a mother, I am hands-on in my son's education, and teaching him how to read and write. Illiteracy is a global epidemic that results in so many other serious socio-economic issues.

Is there a particular way you would want to encourage readers to be involved? Absolutely. Visit www.alfalit.org and support their programs.

Jesse Sarvinski for Red Eye

Name: Jesse Sarvinski

What is your job? I am a songwriter, vocalist and producer but I also like to include visual artist because one of my favorite things is to see a song come to life through the medium of music video. I love to collaborate with other artists and see their interpretation of the song. 
  
What social causes are most important to you? I’m really big on health and nutrition. I believe in the power of the human body, mind, and diet and I live by the words “Let Thy food be Thy medicine” so I try and spread the word that you really and truly can feel better based on what you put into your body. Don’t get me wrong I can definitely slam down a pizza from time to time but in general I like to eat clean; fruits and nuts, vegetables, lean meats and food that comes from the Earth and has not been tainted or processed.
