Press Release: october 23, 2009
Amman Imman Founder Ariane Kirtley
Washington, D.C. (October 23, 2009) Today, Ariane Kirtley's conversation with Montel Williams was broadcast LIVE on Air America's "Montel Across America" show. Montel emphatically urges audience members to do something "for the least of us" and help Amman Imman drill borehole wells in the Azawak of West Africa. We hope to raise $100,000 by February 1st in order to complete another borehole. Secure donations are available online here.
Highlights from the interview:
"What do we have to do to make people in America understand that no matter how bad it is for us, there are still people that are worse-off, and we still need to do our part because that to whom much is given, much is expected." - Montel Williams
"It sounds so simple, let's see what we can do. You've got our commitment here at Montel Across America to help you out. We'll make sure we keep ringing the bell as loudly as we can." - Montel Williams.
