“Empowering women to change the world”


A message from Jade Sayson, Editor-in-Chief, Angel Rising Magazine:

April, 2019
The changing seasons reflect who we are, and this spring, it’s about reclaiming ourselves. The best part? We’re completely in control of what we do to stay in tune with ourselves, whether that be through a daily ritual you’ve decided to keep up with, a yoga class worth waking up for, or simply cooking up a special meal.

This issue is about self. Appreciating and recognizing one’s own strengths should never have a negative connotation. Rather, it should be a celebration—of womanhood, of our talents, and of every little thing we’re doing in order to keep living in this world.

We hope the stories these women are about to share with you inspire you to embrace your entire being. Although the phrase “self-care” has been oversaturated by the grand scheme of marketing, it’s important that we take a step back and reflect on what this phrase means to each and every one of us. Self-care can take on many special forms.

Putting more work towards a personal project after hours rather than throwing on a face mask and reading a book might be a more accurate definition for one person than it is for another. It is different for everyone, after all. What works for you?

About the Foundation

Project Michelangelo is an independent and private organization established in 2011 and conceived from human elements of compassion and hope mobilized into angelic-like response for humanity through educational endowment for needy but deserving children and young adults, assistance to children with cancer and life-threatening diseases, helping grant a wish for a terminally-ill child, and partnership with rescue organizations in times of calamities and disasters.

The name Michelangelo means “messenger who resembles God” and is the image and essence of the foundation’s mission in delivering hope and watching over to empower the children of the world and their appointed guardians. Our commitment to accountability and unique innovations will lead us into the heart of communities anywhere on the planet where these children belong through collaborative means. We believe in hope to change the world into a better place to live in through education and setting of a moral code through passionate belief in the Almighty in the hope of finding and nurturing the next generation world leaders.

Project Michelangelo revolves around the belief that teaching a paradigm shift in the minds of children from helpless to powerful can help them achieve any dream in life they can ever imagine. This Foundation is based in Illinois, USA and currently collaborates with the Republic of the Philippines.
