MARIANNE WILLIAMSON
-- Keynote Speaker


A Houston native, Marianne is an internationally acclaimed spiritual teacher and author of 10 books A Return to Love, The Age of Miracles, Healing the Soul of America and The Gift of Change -- all No. 1 New York Times Best Sellers.  Her most recent book, A Course in Weight Loss, was one of Oprah's Favorite Things in 2010.  A 2006 NEWSWEEK poll named her  one of the fifty most influential baby boomers, and she is a frequent guest on television.

In 1989, she founded Project Angel Food, a meals-on-wheels program that serves homebound AIDS patients in the Los Angeles area that now feeds over 1,000 people daily. She also expresses her deep caring for the world's poor by serving as a long-term member of  the Board of Directors of RESULTS. She is delighted to return to Houston to inspire us, and to present the 2011 Houston RESULTS Seeds of Hope Award to Brandon Kimble, a teacher at her alma mater, Pershing Middle School.



BRANDON KIMBLE - Seeds of Hope Honoree

Brandon Kimble's path was hard but with his mother’s strong support, won a full academic scholarship to Ohio State University. When Hurricane Katrina blew him to Houston, ending his Teach for America stint in New Orleans, he helped create a charter school for evacuees.  As HISD's 2010 Secondary Teacher of the Year, Brandon comments, “Teaching is doing whatever it takes to get students excited about learning and eliciting those ‘a-ha’ moments.  Every child has his or her own gifts."



RESULTS, Inc. is an international, grassroots citizen's advocacy organization whose purpose is to create the political will to end hunger and the worst aspects of poverty. RESULTS Educational Fund, a 501(c)(3) organization, focuses on making an impact in these same areas through training and education.  The two nonprofits work together to accomplish these goals through research, education and training, public events, media coverage and advocacy.  Our research analyzes U.S. spending on hunger and poverty at home and abroad and seeks out sustainable effective remedies.


Our campaigns focus attention on these solutions and support legislators in making them national priorities.  We combine effective non-partisan lobbying and powerful education through persistent media coverage and public events.  These efforts have shifted billions of dollars into cost-effective programs that have saved millions of lives and helped countless people to rise out of poverty.  Through the RESULTS network of training and support, ordinary citizens use their democratic power to create a world of sufficiency and justice for all.
