In 2016 we started on our B.L.A.C.K. (Bestowing Love And Community Kindness) E.M.P.O.W.E.R.M.E.N.T. (Elevating Minority Progression On Wealth, Economics, Residences, Mentorship, Education, Neighborhoods, and Teamwork) Calendar and Ribbon. In 2017, we started bringing them to the public. Every other year we will bring you a new exciting and interactive calendar.
Our goal is to bring awareness, help educate, create change from the past, and change the environment in which our future young children are progressively building. We called it the 'Blueprint' to a near future in changing the conditions and giving an advantage to those willing to rebuild communities to create a better living. Our calendars are meant to unite diversified, yet divided communities, who see the struggle without an excuse to pretend division isn't there. It's made for all.
With its thick back and front covers, glossy and durable inner pages, it makes the perfect wall calendar for your home, office, or as a gift. The spiral bound sheets are sturdy for continued use to see what's coming in months ahead. Inside, it is filled with positive day to day fun, engaging, and interactive events that can be done with family, friends, or most of all...the community.
Our ribbons are beautifully crafted 1" lapel pins made with nickel with a smooth finish to display proudly in support of building our communities. We hope to establish hope, a care for life, a love for self, but also a love and respect for those that live among us through the help and support of us.
Beautifully crafted from nickel with a silver backing - a Red, Black, and Green pin-on ribbon that truly has a representation without explanation. It will stand out not just from your attire, but it shows recognition of unifying our efforts together.
This ribbon symbolizes the support and efforts of building up Lower Income Communities, Empowering and Educating its People, Building Wealth, Stopping Community Violence, Bringing Awareness, Working as a Village, Putting an End to drugs in ALL communities, and LOVING and RESPECTING YOURSELF and those around YOU.
"What is that?" "What is the meaning behind it?" "How does it work?"
It's simple and yet effective. Every last Tuesday of the month, adults exchange $2 for four rolls of pennies from a financial institution, or their jars they've been keeping change in all these years. Each time an adult passes a child within the community, that child is given $0.02. The adults participating in starting wealth with children, will pass out as much as they can until their $2.00 worth of pennies are gone.
We encourage the parents and caretakers to teach each child to save, invest, and continue to watch their little pennies grow.
Adults who support the cause on each Tuesday are encouraged to identify themselves by wearing the B.LA.C.K. E.M.P.O.W.E.R.M.E.N.T. Ribbon™
