Mr. Pirchesky's spirit has been an entrepreneurial one, and in 2006, he founded the internet business, One World Blue, LLC, with the establishment of the first online site. The long term and overall goal for One World Blue has been to create a social media platform that will be a place for Social and Planetary Healing.
The One World Blue Network is a platform to spotlight the good individuals have done to transform the world, celebrate and appreciate cultural diversity, showcase the beauty of the Earth in Planet Sanctuary, and to act as a catalyst for conflict resolution thru the Overture to Peace module.
In 2010, the plan was begun to build the social media platform which was given the name Blupela, The One World Blue Social Good Network. After over three years of research, development and investment into this transformative network, Blupela.com now offers this unique social networking experience as it provides a dynamic and comprehensive service by utilizing innovative tools to connect people and ideas with the goal of improving the world one good deed at a time.
As the progression of The One World Blue Network has evolved, in December 2014 Mr. Pirchesky completed his Master’s program at the Graduate School of Public and International Affairs at the University of Pittsburgh. He earned his Master’s in Public Policy and Management, with a focus in International Development, and graduated Summa Cum Laude.
