LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/27/14 -- Truli Media Group, Inc. (OTCQB: TRLI), parent company of Truli.com, a global, faith and family friendly media content platform and social community hub, today announced that NBA legend A.C. Green has joined its advisory board of directors.
"A.C. is a good friend, a Believer, and a believer in Truli," said Michael Jay Solomon, Founder, Chairman and CEO of Truli. "A.C. has used his success on the basketball court to build a platform from which he has been able to present the Christian message. We are pleased that he has selected us to further than platform."
"Truli.com is a game changer for people hungry for Christian and family friendly content," said A.C. Green. "They have been steadily building the largest library of audio and video content that allows for the Truli.com user to be educated, ministered to, entertained and uplifted. Anyone will find what they need on Truli.com. It's an amazing platform with a solid group of media leaders in charge and a 'Who's Who' of programming and ministry partners. I am excited to contribute to the effort."
A.C. Green is known as the NBA's Iron Man, having played in 1,192 straight games (surpassing Randy Smith's 907 consecutive games played on November 20, 1997). A.C. spent 16 seasons in the NBA, and won three championships with the Los Angeles Lakers spanning three decades (in 1987, 1988, and 2000), beginning with teammates such as Showtime's Magic Johnson, Coach Pat Riley, Kareem Abdul Jabbar, and James Worthy, and ending with Shaquille O'Neal, Kobe Bryant, Robert Horry, Derek Fisher, and Coach Phil Jackson. A.C. is the only player in Lakers history to win championships in both the "Fabulous" Forum and Staples Center. A.C. also played with Charles Barkley and the Phoenix Suns, Dirk Nowitzki and the Dallas Mavericks, and Alonzo Mourning's Miami Heat.
Outside of basketball, A.C.'s heart is dedicated to working with youth. Because of his love for young people, A.C. established the A.C. Green Youth Foundation in 1989, with the main focus on sexual abstinence education. Through his "I've Got the Power" and "Game Plan" abstinence curriculum, videos, leadership camps, and web site, A.C.'s mission is to help young people build self-esteem and character, and learn moral and ethical principles which will help them make responsible decisions.
A.C. is a role model that youth across America can respect, and for this he was recognized in the House of Representatives' Congressional Record of October 26, 1999 and by President George Bush when A.C. attended a ceremony in the Oval Room during Black History Month in 2006. In the course of his business ventures and community service, A.C. has made speaking appearances across the world, in countries such as China, India, Mexico, Korea, Malaysia, and the Philippines.
