2023 GLBAL good recipient – Matt & Karli Vonherbulis

Each year GLBAL media designates a percentage of our profit to fund various projects/causes that we believe align with the vision to bring the world together, and share those success stories with you – we call it the “GLBAL good.” This year we’ve made a donation to the Vonherbulis family who currently live in Rwanda.

In November of 2023 documentary filmmaker, Justin Willet, traveled to Rwanda to learn more about how Sowers of Hope was inspiring local farmers to take pride in their work and understand the valuable role the land plays in nutrition. Back to the Field is a documentary about restoring dignity to farming in the land of a thousand hills. Produced and directed by Justin Willet and edited by Caelan Gregory, this story follows the work of the Vonherbulis family as they live and work alongside farmers in Rwanda. Practicing regenerative agriculture for nutritional, economic, environmental, and spiritual growth in their communities.

The GLBAL good
Each year as a company (GLBAL media) we designate a percentage of our profits to fund various projects/causes that we believe align with our vision to bring the world together. Established in 2020, our first GLBAL good recipient was a clean water well with ChildFund followed by a donation to Soni Sunshine in 2021 to provide resources for cancer patients. This year we’re excited to share that LightsOut has been chosen as our 2022 recipient.

This year’s recipient is LightsOut, a nonprofit that provides emotional, physical and spiritual support for musicians, speakers, crew and other touring professionals.

About LightsOut
LightsOut provides emotional, physical and spiritual support for musicians, speakers, crew and other touring professionals. They focus on caring for these people off the stage so that they can be their best on stage. Having toured for over 15 years we know the struggles of life on the road, the challenge of being away from family and the toll having to be in the spotlight can take. LightsOut exists to help make all of that a little more manageable.

 

Dave Decker & Justin Willet

 

How we met LightsOut
Long before it was even an established nonprofit, Dave has been caring for people in the entertainment industry. About 15 years ago when Justin was touring in a 15 passenger band with his brothers in Willet they drove 23 hours from Maryland to Sioux Falls, SD to play at a festival. After their set they were planning to sleep in their van before making the drive back home. Dave was stage managing at the festival and caught wind of this situation. He immediately offered his personal RV for the band to sleep in so that they wouldn’t have to stay in their van. That night started a friendship that would later evolve to include multiple tours together, discussions about mental/spiritual/emotional health, the needs of artists and the struggles of being on the road.
Dave is one of those people that you can call at anytime. He’s literally dropped everything to drive states away to help. I can’t count how many cups of coffee we’ve enjoyed together over the years and am excited to see his ministry continue to grow.

Sonia herself is currently battling cancer and despite her many challenges continues to have a passion to serve others first. As a company, we are thankful to be able to support her efforts during this time in a small way. When we first contacted Casey and Sonia to share the news with them, right away she said that she wanted the funds to be used for their “Help is on the way fund” to support other cancer patients.

We have worked with Sonia and her husband Casey for about 7 years on multiple projects. Most recently, we built the Soni Sunshine website for them.

 

If you or someone you know is in need of cancer treatment resources visit the Soni Sunshine website to see all that they have to offer.

2020 GLBAL good recipient – ChildFund

GLBAL good - well

December 16, 2020

This company was founded out of a passion to bring the world together and support nonprofits and other do-good organizations. At the beginning of this year we had the opportunity to travel to Mozambique, Africa with our friends from ChildFund. The purpose of this trip was to capture photos and videos from the Zavala community who had recently had a clean water well installed. 2 years prior my brother, Jeremy Willet, had lived in this exact community for a month with his sponsored child and we were returning to see firsthand the difference access to clean water was making. The change that had taken place was unbelievable and to see the joy that was now spreading through the community was contagious. Shortly after this trip the entire world came to a halt as a result of COVID-19. Immediately as a company we started thinking of ways that we could help children around the world. That’s when the idea was born.

Introducing: #GLBALgood

Each year as a company we will designate a percentage of our profit to fund various projects/causes that we believe align with our vision to bring the world together, and share those success stories with you.

This year we have partnered with ChildFund to provide a hand pump well in Mozambique. Because of this new hand pump well, children will no longer have to make long, dangerous journeys on foot to collect water from unreliable, contaminated sources. Because of GLBAL media clients, children will be safer. They’ll have more time for school and play and they will be better protected from the risk of deadly waterborne diseases.

 

April 16, 2020 Update

The new well is complete and ready to use! Thank you ChildFund for the amazing work you do to support these communities!
