(Co-Founder of EPIC, singer/songwriter)
In 2008 EPIC teamed up with the new Quiksilver Women’s line, who donated 3% of all of their eco-friendly clothing sales in 2009 to the drilling of EPIC’s clean water wells.
With the extraordinary help of Quiksilver, along with many of your generous donations, EPIC was able to drill their 2nd and 3rd wells in the villages of Mangalali and Kibebe.
In 2010, the 3% royalty rate came from all of the QSW stylish Eco-Friendly Tees and with their continuous support, along with all of your kind donations, EPIC drilled 3 more clean water wells in 2010. Please visit their Projects section to learn more! Today, there are 8 working wells with 3 more being built.

E.P.I.C. The Movement
The EPIC Assembly for Schools – 1 class period (45 minutes – 1 hour)
E.P.I.C. (Everyday People Initiating Change) began as a non-profit organization, but has now become what we believe to be one of the most important movements of our time. The purpose of E.P.I.C. is to make people aware of how easy it is to contribute positively to our world. Our presentation within your school meets most States school Core-Curriculum requirements under: Character Education, Geography, and Anti-bullying/Anti-Violence education. Your students will relate to the fact that Alexi and Tennille are young people themselves, currently making world-changes; and will view moving films of the girls working with students in Tanzania, Africa. The School administration will delight in the fact that Alexi was a 4.0 Talented & Gifted Student, who exempted 11th grade, and who speaks about the importance of being successful in education and how it opens the world of opportunity for all young people.
The birth of E.P.I.C. was a result of two individuals, Alexi Panos & Tennille Amor, good friends and Co-Founders of E.P.I.C, who shared the same vision; feeling a strong calling to initiate change in the way that people live their lives today. It all begins with the commitment to living a conscious life, and the acceptance of the responsibility to spread this state of consciousness to everyone we possibly can.
To initiate change could be as small as not using excess water in daily chores, to having a conversation about the issues broadcasted on the daily news. To initiate change could also be to volunteer within your community, or to step outside of your comfort zone and find somewhere to volunteer abroad. While EPIC accepts donations for relief efforts worldwide, to initiate change isn’t only about donating money; it’s about feeling compelled to invest in the human condition.
The donations received by E.P.I.C. since 2006 have all gone towards bettering the lives of the children who are born into a world of suffering and deprivation within some of Africa’s most impoverished nations. We intend to help alleviate this suffering by providing children with an easier access to education and by providing the most basic need of all, clean water. Called “The Ripples Project,” providing well water can help stop the cycle of disease and death from water born illnesses and poor sanitation, as well as educate the future generations, therefore contributing to a stronger work force in which will better the community and the economy as a whole. By focusing our efforts on the children and families of Africa, we hope to eventually contribute to putting an end to the immense imbalance that exists between the First the Third Worlds. To date, June 2014, nine fresh water wells are successfully built and working in villages of 3 – 6,000 people!
