By Al Cole from CBS Radio

If the United States is to live out its destiny of being the number one military and economic power on the planet, it must also live out its responsibility to be the number one humanitarian and virtuous power on the planet too! And if it falls short in this direction, then how are tremendous financial arsenals and devastating weaponries to be justified in the first place? If the United States is to truly be known as the great “melting pot” of the world, then every leader of every “melting pot” group in the nation must come forth with the courage to support his or her brothers and sisters in other groups of the American Family. We’ve come to a crisis point in our society where contending forces must place down their armaments for peace, and each and every member must support other American Family members with the generous gifts of peace of mind. No longer can we tolerate divisive forces in our society which denigrate and humiliate us. Now, more than ever, we need leadership which brings us together through the understanding of the dignity of life and the conviction that “all men and women truly are created equal“. It’s time to revisit the age old axiom “only love can conquer hate” with even sharper vision which can ring true to all sectors of our society. Let us step up to the plate and let the one thing that we can all agree on – love- guide us through the perilous paths and the inspiring missions of making all of the collective individuals of our country, and of our world, once again a unified Human Family!

… A unified and loving Human Family not only for our present sake, but for the sake of the present that we can give to all of our blessed children to come!

Our “People of Distinction Humanitarian Awards” have been a HUGE SUCCESS!!

To Expand With Us, contact our Executive Director, Al Cole:

AlColeHolic@gmail.com or 508-669-6987





Due to the huge success of his nationally syndicated talk show “People of Distinction“, humanitarian broadcaster and “Chicken Soup for the Soul” author, Al Cole from CBS Radio was urged to expand his efforts. Starting out with the establishment of his People of Distinction Humanitarian Foundation, CEO Al Cole, on New Years Day 2013, made a New Years resolution. His resolve was to honor courageous, inspiring, and dedicated Unsung Heroes who make the world a better place through their great humanitarian work. Al’s conviction is that by providing an opportunity for Unsung Heroes to share their stories of courage, humility and success, we can all work together to inspire others to be better, do better and encourage the true greatness of our Human Family!

~ With this sort of inspired commitment, and with the help of our People of Distinction Humanitarian Awards Committee, the People of Distinction Humanitarian Awards was born!


A stellar committee of dedicated, passionate professionals who have worked together to make the People of Distinction Humanitarian Awards a reality! They are Business Leaders, Authors, Publicists, Educators, United Nations Leaders, Doctors, Lawyers and more.


We honor many of the world’s best kept secrets: Selfless, courageous and inspiring “Unsung Heroes” who are off of the radar screen of major media and public attention – it’s now their turn to shine! They, at last, sing their valiant songs to an applauding mass public.

We honor them through their presence at our Awards Celebration and through Video Documentaries of their amazing heroic stories!

Here are some of our People of Distinction Humanitarian Awards “Unsung Heroes”:

Laurel Kaufer_sm Father Powis, 75, is a spiritual leader in our world and, as such, rates deep respect. Yes. But true respect is EARNED, and Father Powis has earned every bit of our RESPECT due to his love of Humanity… and his 50 years of creative and Christly troublemaking since taking his vows in 1959! The AIDS orphans in Swaziland, Africa are courageous CHILDREN living in some of the poorest areas of Africa who, due to the AIDS epidemic that killed their parents, are now raising their own brothers and sisters!

Meet Dr. Craig Oster: A 19 year survivor of ALS (Lou Gerhig's disease). ~ Hungarian born, Vera Matty... writes with passion ('Helping others is something that comes to me naturally')
