Miss A Columnist

Ashley C. Jones is the Entertainment Editor for Miss A. She is a writer, and soon to be entrepreneur (stay tuned). She earned a Bachelor’s of Science in Communication Arts and also minored in International Studies at St. John’s University in NY. The minor was stumbled upon thanks to a semester in various countries, which sort of qualifies her as well traveled.

A native to nowhere, Ashley has spent most of her life living in either Houston, TX or Illinois suburbs. She now lives in NY. While further honing her writing skills in her last year of University education, and after, she found her niche in doing interviews, a great fit, because of a natural obsession with docu-dramas, magazine interviews, and documentaries, starting at an extremely young age.

Some of Ashley’s favorite charities include Vitamin Angels, The ASPCA, and Alzheimer’s Association. She’s extremely awkward in front of a camera, has an artistic temperament despite not really being an artist (yet), and is passionate about organic produce, vintage thrifting, art, music, yoga, and lots of other things!

Aid Still Required is a non-profit with a new and newsworthy view on foreign aid.  We all know that when a disaster occurs, especially in places like Haiti and Indonesia, or in the occurrence of an event like Hurricane Katrina, that immediate needs must be met to secure the health and safety of those affected.  Still, how much good has been done when the life you saved is in danger from the very same thing that afflicted him or her just a week earlier?

A focus on creating sustainable change has never really been a huge method for a lot of charities who are traditionally involved in providing relief aid.  Immediate relief is only one part of the story of truly healing a place and it’s people, money must be allocated to create real, substantial, and sustainable change in infrastructure.

Nearly 70% of relief funds are spent in the first three months after a natural disaster or human crisis, and little to no thought is given to what will happen later.  With a huge allegiance of celebrity supporters that include Mia FarrowJared LetoSarah Silverman, and Common, Aid Still Required works to bring awareness to the forgotten victims of tragedy who are still in need and will continue to be in need until resources begin to be allocated in a way that helps better prepare for long time change.
