Visionary and Creator of NSPC4PEACE
Hi, I’m Tally, the Visionary and Creator behind NSPC4PEACE, and after receiving a poem written by one of my MySpace fans I released it as single ‘Beauty of the Duty, which ended up being featured on the BBC Radio 2 playlist and on over 100 radio stations around the World.
This has inspired me to create this project, where I can provide a platform where children can learn about peace, love, and engage in writing poetry from their hearts to reach out and to inspire others that there is a better way.
Website and Social Media Integration
Hi, I’m Ian and I designed and maintain The National Schools Poetry Competition website. Having led a fairly successful life, everything changed after I suffered a heart attack in 2014, and as a result of my circumstances I was subsequently made homeless. Since then I’ve endured a series of serious heart operations, including a quadruple heart bypass which was life-changing, completely changing how I view the world and my attitude to others around me.
I love the idea of this project and if it touches the hearts of only a few people and changes their lives for the better then I will be an incredibly happy man!
