WCH Founder & President, Maria Amor uttered proudly.

AAI is the only non-profit in the world leveraging connections with the airline industry to facilitate humanitarian efforts, and is recognized by the US Congress and the United Nations.
Prompted by the sudden death of her father, Nancy left a career management track, returned to a position as a flight attendant, to begin a profound search for meaning.

She founded Airline Ambassadors Intl (AAI) in 1996 so individuals could match their unique interests and skills to actual world need. It began as airline personnel but expanded to 6000 members, including medical and business professionals, students and retirees.

WCH recognizes Chris La Vrar's unique talent, and at the G.O.D. awards, he promised not to disappoint. "We'd like to add a little bit of twist to the event, a fusion of classic and contemporary entertainment, something to amaze our audience", said WCH Founder & President, Maria Amor.
“Freestyle” is a term that has lost its meaning in the modern hip-hop landscape. What once referred to genuine musical improvisation has become no more than a buzzword to disguise the mere rearrangement of previously written material. But all that is about to change. Today, the art of true freestyle hip-hop is alive and well in the ever spontaneous syllable and impromptu idiom that drops from the silver tongue of Chris La Vrar.
Chris La Vrar a hip-hop renaissance man with the uncanny ability to conjure inspired, seemingly fully-formed lyrics from thin air, as if by magic.

Not to mention Chris was on Americas Got Talent season 7, 2012 and received a standing ovation from Howard Stern, Sharon Osbourne, Howie Mandel and the audience. Chris La Vrar is a truly unique entertainer for all ages.
Utilizing his ability to turn even the most random or routine object into the basis of an exciting and inventive freestyle creation,Chris has also branched out into commercial engagements. When a brand needs to distill its essence into a commercial spot that is simultaneously infectious, creative, and cutting-edge, the lyrical skills of La Vrar are quickly becoming a popular choice. MTV, Five Alarm Music, K-Pop Soda, the Red Cross, Miller Beer, NBC, UPN, FOX. and Telemundo are just a few of the companies who have contracted his services.
Once again, Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa sent his inspiring message to WCH and to everyone involved in the G.O.D. Awards. His unparalleled support brings tremendous motivation to the the goals and visions of We Care for Humanity.
"We couldn't be more grateful for the attention and support that our Honorable Mayor Villaraigosa bestow upon us every time we have a huge project or fundraising. It is truly an amazing journey to be presiding WCH knowing that the Mayor of Los Angeles recognizes our organization and that we can count on him especially when we needed him", said Maria Amor, WCH Founder & President.
