About the Founders
Julian is a physicist at heart who anticipated spending
the rest of his life in the engineering and scientific
world. However, in 2002, a serious spine injury
profoundly altered his life and his perspective. He
never imagined working on a peace project, let alone
leading a movement, yet his vision and efforts have
helped shape 10 Million Clicks For Peace into what it is
previous experience includes 5 years at NASA's Jet
Propulsion Laboratory, working in radiation-effects
testing of semiconductor devices, and building one of
the world's first large parallel-computers. He spent 9
years working in electronics, 13 years in software
development, and 2 years repairing industrial machines
(some as big as a house).
His ability to
remain happy after a serious spine injury led his friends to shake
their heads and marvel. He found himself trapped in bed 22 hours a
day; unable to work, unable to drive or walk around freely. He lost
his car and a 6-figure income. Yet he remained happy.
After the first
year in bed, he received a letter from an unhappy friend. He began
his reply with hopes of imparting what he knew about happiness—in
spite of difficulties. Thirty-five pages later, he realized he had a
serious problem…much more to say and not enough paper. It was then
he realized that writing a book could help many find greater
happiness. That book opened the door to a remarkable spiritual
transformation that reconnected him to the teachings from his early
life with his grandparents. They showed him how to be live happily
regardless of circumstances, but they had done something far
taught him what it meant to be a war refugee, and it was this
knowledge that was to change his life and inspire 10MC some 35 years
later, long after their passing.
While taking a
break from writing his book, Julian became profoundly moved by a
documentary on the plight of Afghanistan's 1 million war refugees.
During the program, he found himself looking straight into the eyes
of a family who could have been his own grandparents 60 years
earlier. In that moment, decades vanished, and he "connected." He
knew immediately that part of the proceeds of his book would go to
help war refugees, yet it would take 4 years before he would finally
come to know the sheer scope of the project he would come to lead.
10 Million Clicks
For Peace is Julian's path to repaying—with compound interest—the
anonymous gifts of kindness bestowed on his grandparents, kindnesses
that allowed them to survive their experience as war refugees. Those
kindnesses are responsible for Julian's very existence.
Julian takes no
credit for 10 Million Clicks For Peace. He believes the project was
inspired. He is just an instrument of the Universe…doing what the
Universe is best at: Connecting.
Professional Song-writing. Throughout the 1970's and
80's, while "firing up the dry-cleaning boilers" at 5
am, six days a week, Rick pursued his musical passion;
writing, recording, and pitching songs. He won Billboard
Magazine's International Songwriting Competition the
first two years running, and other major music
publishers and recording companies started picking up
his material, so he sold his dry-cleaning business in
the 1990’s to form a music production company. He spent
two years building a professional recording facility in
his home. Unfortunately, in the same month his
production company launched, his marriage ended, and his
studio and music royalties were seized by the divorce

artist lifestyle, Rick made his way to the Internet and began using
his entrepreneurial and creative skills to become one of the
original Internet marketers. He was the first person to write about
joint-venturing as a means of Internet marketing, and many of the
biggest Internet marketers in the world, owe their start to Rick's

create top-selling marketing products, like: Ezine Marketing
Machine, Branding You, and Breaking the Bank, and he originated the
Internet's first two-tier affiliate program with his traveling

hundreds of Internet newsletters as well as in magazines and print

In 2001, Rick founded the Internet's first toy drive, an online
holiday mainstay for eight years. Recruiting the top Internet
marketers in large promotional campaigns aimed at making sure no
child is left without at least one gift under the Christmas tree,

with the official "Toys for Tots" program.
Entrepreneurial 9/11 Transition. The tragic events of September
11, 2001 affected Rick so profoundly that he decided to change
direction from helping people build online businesses to simply
helping build people. His breakthrough ebook from 2002, Success:
A Spiritual Matter, the first in a series of products that
bridge business success and spirituality, remains an entrepreneur's
favorite to this day.
In 2003, Rick's
first print book, A Large Slice of Life to Go, Please! was

Clicks Founder. On the morning of July 15, 2006, Rick was
downloading his usual hundreds of emails. It would be a morning that
would profoundly affect his life.
The first email
was a CNN Breaking News Alert outlining the latest gory details
about the bloodbath in the Middle East. It literally made him
nauseous. The second was from Julian Kalmar, a man Rick hardly knew.
Julian explained that he couldn't sleep that night, fearing for the
lives of two friends, one in Lebanon, and one in Israel, friends he
could no longer reach and whom he feared had been killed. He wrote
that he had asked the Universe what he could possibly do to help,
and immediately, "10 Million Votes for Peace" jumped into his
mind. That was Rick's cue to call Julian. At 6:42 a.m. they began
discussing the project that became known as 10 Million Clicks for
Two years later, Rick is as enthusiastic as ever that the work he's
doing will change the world. The Peace Impact Meter (i.e. Peace
Machine) technology he developed with Julian Kalmar opens the doors
of philanthropy wide to the waves of regular folks who want to help,
but don't know what to do. "Now they know exactly what to do and
can see measurable results right on their computers and cell phones.
We'll empower millions to create world peace for their children,
their grandchildren, and themselves, and I believe we'll reach the
tipping point for peace.. This is the legacy I want to leave, and
this work is how I'm spending the rest of my life."
