The Unstoppable Foundation will celebrate global access to education at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza in L.A. on Saturday, March 15th with Grammy-award winning recording artist Brandy, actors Malcolm Jamal Warner, Martin Sheen and John Schneider, Unstoppable Foundation Founder Cynthia Kersey and other celebrities.

LOS ANGELES, Feb. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Unstoppable Foundation's 5th annual gala will be an exciting evening filled with inspiration, connection and the opportunity to make a powerful difference. The Foundation celebrates five years of bringing education to more than 6,000 children in some of our world's most impoverished nations. The goal of the evening is to provide an education to an additional 1,000 children in need.
"Our Unstoppable Gala brings a voice to 57 million children who do not have access to even a primary education. We can solve this critical need if we have the will to do something about it," said Cynthia Kersey, founder of The Unstoppable Foundation.
The gala will be a spectacular affair, starting with a private VIP reception, entertainment, a live auction and other surprises. Brandy and Malcolm Jamal Warner will be honorary co-chairs, joined by host John Schneider and celebrity guests Martin Sheen, Leigh Steinberg, Cathy Lee Crosby and many more. Malala Yousafzai, the brave young Pakistani girl who stood up for the right for girls to attend school, and was shot by the Taliban, will receive the 2014 Unstoppable Achievement Award (appearance based on schedule).
The Unstoppable Foundation has the support of the personal development and transformation industry. Attendees range from mega influencers, including best-selling authors, nationally known speakers, global thought leaders, celebrities, to some of the greatest minds in business and philanthropy. KABC-7 has joined the Unstoppable team as media partner for the gala.
The Unstoppable Foundation was created six years ago by transformational expert, author and visionary Cynthia Kersey. Kersey's dream was to create transformation on a global scale by igniting a social movement of individuals, organizations and partnerships committed to ensuring that every child receives access to an education. Because of her leadership, more than 6,000 children are receiving an education and a daily meal, 56 school houses and two secondary schools have been built, 17,285 men, women and children have been given access to clean water, sanitation and healthcare, and 2,000+ adults have received training on how to create an income so that the projects are sustainable.
"The Unstoppable Gala is a platform to inspire and mobilize people to use their voice and take action to impact a child forever. That action has the power to transform lives, communities and the world," said Kersey.
"The Unstoppable Model -- Sponsor a Village, The Unstoppable Solution for Sustainable Education, is based on the 5-Pillar development model. The five pillars not only include schools, but also provide the entire community with access to clean water and sanitation, food and nutrition, healthcare and alternative income training for parents. The Unstoppable model is designed so everything is owned and maintained by the community, and the project is completely self-sustaining within five years of the completed implementation.
We believe every child has A Right To Learn. Attendees' participation and generosity at the gala will help the Unstoppable Foundation expand our mission and achieve our goal of bringing education to an additional 5,000 children in 2014," said Kersey.
