  Profile: "In what seemed just a blink ago, I was in a hospital room helping my mother gently maneuver headphones on my father’s ears. My father’s journey with cancer was brief, and we knew he was nearing his time to leave us. We were just hoping music could help relax him, even just a little, and provide his body enough peace to be able to sleep after days of agitation and pain. Within an hour…he was asleep. As the nurses began asking what we had done to help calm and ease my father’s pain, we said, “We just played music.” That was the life-changing moment that has brought us here over 20 years later." -KEYS Founder, Colleen Bennett From that moment in November of 1993, the KEYS Program was born to help bring music, comfort, hope and smiles to kids going through the same difficult time, in memory of Colleen's father. Today, with the help of over 100 volunteers, the KEYS Program provides its award-winning patient support programs to children treated in 44 children's hospitals, special needs sites and hospice agencies across the US. Colleen has been recognized for her dedication to children receiving the Child Care Council of Cornell Cooperative Extensions Friend of Children Award, Who's Who Among American Women and the KEYS Program has been named one of the top 15 children's charities in the US by the Tony Stewart Foundation for the past 4 years.

  Profile: So many of us have a stockbroker, accountant, insurance agent, and lawyer, but NOT a plan. While you can save and build wealth, a self-service corporate portal or your local savings bank will not tell you what you need to know about *how* to arrive at your goal or how to manage the withdrawal of your funds for your children's education or in retirement. My clients learn how to keep their wealth growing, while positioning their children for a successful 'launch' and themselves for a lifetime of income.

  Speaker's Bureau Topics: What makes a woman happy? I am sure one of the main answers will be - have something nice to wear, something that gives her a good feeling and have a precense. Well what can it be? I think that a unique jewelry is the answer. What do you think? So, please enter my website, and see the handmade jewelry, and maybe you'll get the desire to have something new for the winter 2009 or holiday.
  Profile: My name is Chen and I live in Israel. After several years of creating jewelry with beads, I have to admit that I am a "beadaholic" but I have no intention of rehabilitating. I think that the jewelry creation is like magic - you create something new from the unknown, from your imagination and it becomes something people like to wear. Each finished piece of jewelry acquires its unique presence, which can be totally different on each person who wears it.
