Curt Jones, formerly with bands, Slave, AURA, DEJA to donate showcase to charity event in Dallas! Brighter Generation Foundation for homeless and foster children.

Hidden From View

We imagine a world where we would like to believe that all children have a home. The local government is tasked with and obtains funding to provide for children that find themselves in unfortunate circumstances. That’s what orphanages and the foster care systems are for…to care for children that have no parents. And these systems must be working great because after all, when was the last time you saw a homeless child? That National Conference of State Legislatures estimates that “…on a given night there are approximately 1.3 homeless youth living unsupervised on the streets” (http://www.ncsl.org/research/human-services/homeless-and-runaway-youth.aspx). So either they are mistaken or we are grossly out of touch with what is really happening to our youth in America.

Because we don’t see homeless youth on the streets, we assume that either (a) there is no such thing as youth homelessness or (b) that the social systems we have in place to address and prevent youth homelessness must be working, but nothing is further from the truth. You won’t see homeless youth on the streets begging for money or walking about in broad daylight. Homeless youth become experts at hiding themselves because they are at high risk for assault, illness, and suicide and as many as 5,000 unaccompanied youth die each year.

Brighter Generation Foundation understands all too well the difficult situation in which homeless youth find themselves. Through the support of our donors and sponsors we are able to provide for the basic human needs of hundreds of homeless youth in the Dallas Independent School District. We supply items such as food, water, clothing, school supplies, and access to resources that can help them to improve their circumstances.

Raquel Gonzalez joins Creative Juice Online

Just in! Creative Juice Online is excited to announce we have added Raquel Gonzalez to our digital creative team. Raquel will work with our digital branding, social media areas and bring a sharp millennial perspective to our team. Raquel has worked with our team on other projects including Monster Products and Visit Dallas online content.

A multimedia producer, writer, photographer and marketer born and raised in Chicago, IL. However, her career in the media industry started while she was attending college at The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley in South Texas. After graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in Mass Communication with a concentration in Broadcast Journalism, she took her education and experience to a top five U.S. media market in Dallas, TX. There she became a news and segment producer where she created and packaged stories for the station, showcased the community and businesses around the area, and was always marketing and growing reputations and images as she had to reach the masses. She branded her raw compassion for covering the good, the bad, and the ugly, but always with an open mind to make the story better. Now that she lives in Miami, FL, her mission is to continue telling your story and bringing your brand to life.

After years in the industry, she became frustrated with news stations and media companies telling her what stories to cover and how to report them. She was never allowed to fully express herself or really tell it like it is. There were times she felt like she had a captivating story to tell or photo to share only to be shot down moments later. Other times, she knew of a rising business with a great product or service, only to be told they won’t make it and close. They ended up expanding and blowing up and of course the station lost the coverage and the story. Rock Media House, LLC wants to share the stories the big guys don’t care about. Whether that’s through social media, photography, writing or being the face or the voice, Raquel is here to tell YOUR story. We at Creative Juice Online are very proud to have Raquel Gonzalez on our digital team. She “get’s it”.
