Mr. Lester Wilson

The Blonka Movement is impressive to me because the focus is on people or groups in the community that do positive things. In my case, I like the awareness the Blonka Movement shared on me, my students, and my school, Kipp Renaissance. Too often, we see and hear about negative things that are happening in our communities. It is refreshing to see positive stories about people, organizations, etc. Keep up the good work. Please continue to show the work of dedicated teachers/students. Sincerely, Lester Wilson, Band Director at KIPP Renaissance High School

Mr. Philip Veneziano

On Valentine’s Day my special needs classroom was honored by the Blonka Movement. My students were expecting a small class party with the usual chalky-heart candy, exchanging cards, and creating something for their families.  What they received instead was a party I’m sure they will remember for years to come. The Blonka Movement honored each student with a certificate celebrating their differences and a personalized Valentine’s Day basket, complete with chocolates and a stuffed animal etc. What stood out to me more than anything else, was the way Blonka and her associate became part of our class family. Instead of dropping off gifts, taking a few pictures, and leaving; they celebrated with us. Since that day, the Blonka Movement has maintained and fostered a relationship with my students.  Students like mine don’t often get to experience this degree of love and dedication from people outside of their school community and for that I am eternally grateful.

What is the idea behind the Reach One Teach One Program?

The inspiration behind our Reach One Teach One Program is influenced by the everyday role model who encourages everyone, including the youth, to "Be Yourself ." Were known for celebrating and embracing the differences and uniqueness within each kid with a higher learning standard known as special needs. Everyone, including the next generation, needs that friend in your head who projects the foundation, imagery, and grit it takes to make it to the next realm. We advocate for Mental Health and Suicide Awareness. As it relates to philanthropy, different Idols has laid the foundation and imagery for the African American community and more for a pathway to success, inspiring the youth to study, follow, surpass expectations while encouraging them to trailblazing a lane of their own. Our motto is an extension of the Reach One Teach One Awards & Mentorship Program; Be Yourself Idol Awards Influenced by positive Idol's that the youth look up to. These Idol awards challenge the adolescent mind, give them purpose and reaching triumph is inspiring to all. We must uplift this generation so we can demonstrate change within the Universe. 

We are a platform that bridge the gap between different journies of many significant pillars and role models of ideal communities that have made a name and represent hope for the youth. Each paragon leader's influential award increases the graduation rate within the educational system—uplifting kids with a higher learning standard. B.M. is provoking change globally with an elite curated panel that presents an in-person representation to motivate the adolescent mind from engaging in unproductive activities.  Every influencer was once a student, and we all are students of life.


  The Founder of the Blonka Movement has been intrigued by different role models and their ability to be transparent and selfless, putting people first. Maneuvering through critics reaching triumph while teaching the Universe how to look past color and identify within the person's character. 


  As a token of our appreciation, we've implemented "Creative Awards" to connect & acknowledge the youth while creating change within the community, universities, public and private school system.

Prestigious awards are bestowed upon Paragon leaders in the community with an educational background that goes above & beyond to keep extracurricular programs and teacher who raise the bar. B.M. raises awareness towards Music, Band, and Orchestra; Special Needs Programs, Athletics while advocating for Mental Health Awareness and Prison Reform. The impact of being honored by thy: Blonka Movement Be Yourself Motto "has changed the perception of whom our youth can become, setting the bar higher." Imagery is supposed to start at home, but our eyes and ears gravitate to those we can see ourselves following in the footstep of, Humanitarians, Trailblazers with a relentless work ethic, and so much more. To have a 360 moment is to enjoy the fruits of our labor, and there's always someone watching and observing trying to reinvent the will and pass the torch. 


Perks of being honored: CEO Guest Panel Q&A, including Honorable Judges, Business CEOs, Political Speakers, NFL Athletes, Entrepreneurs, Authors, Staff Associates, donations, gifts, gift cards, and more.

Blonka and her team have been helping us out, providing my husband and me with food and clothes. I love what her organization represents. 

There's nothing she wouldn't do to help someone in need. My life will never be the same; many people walked past me as I was sleeping on the ground time and time again under the Claiborne bridge. Many times I was robbed and couldn't sleep; my clothes and food were stolen. Blonka is a hero, and her team is the blessing that answered my PRAYERS. God Bless and thank you for everything you have done to help us.
