Building A Global Model For Collective Thriving
You Are EmpoweredTo help every being experience the highest quality of life possible.
A Helping Hand
Volunteerism is community. Working together as one to achieve a common purpose. To volunteer is to surrender oneself, the ego, and to work for the benefit of others. It is a commitment of time and an expression of compassion.
Once basic necessities are met and novelties exhausted, material things diminishes in returns on happiness. Abundance can be achieved when wealth is shared for the common prosperity. Our generosity is the antithesis of poverty.
A cause needs one or a few to rise up and rally the many toward a shared mission, aligned visions, and a common goal. Join the community and use your passions to help pave the way to a thriving existence for all.
Poverty spans the globe but there are also many people experiencing homelessness here in Orange County who can use a helping hand.
In Phase I, we host localized outreach events to provide sustenance, basic life necessities, with a touch of the arts to bring people together and increase awareness of poverty’s hold on the people within the community.
Use insights from Phase I & II as a foundation to establish a collective center for community empowerment, arts convergence, and individual development.
Find a suitable location and raise the funds necessary to sustain operation of “The Center for Collective Empowerment.”
We are not rich by what we possess but by what we can do without.
Thieves of Poverty
