Yesterday, we found out that we won the idea competition at Plywood Presents! We got a chance to to pitch our idea in front of 800+ Plywood(ers) before five judges.
It was an amazing opportunity, and we cannot wait to get started with furthering our Mobile Makeovers project!
Below is a cool picture from the decision.
In the last two and a half weeks, we have produced 20 pieces of art out of reclaimed wood (giving dignity and work back to a man transitioning out of homelessness). His name is Bruce, and he is building back the pieces to his life (literally)!
This past weekend, we had a follower reach out and say that she wanted us to see if we could make her two end tables. Well, below is a picture of what we produced today (Bruce & Terence).
With the help of people donating wood and a few tools, we are creating art and helping a man find dignity through work through a program we are launching in the fall called Dignity Art. If you would like to get our program to design you a piece of art, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Yesterday, our team went out to serve those in need with the #mobilemakeovers bus, and it was amazing!
We encountered a gentleman by the name of Harvey! At first he was apprehensive, but when he stepped on the bus he came to life, shared his story, and was open to all of the services we referred him to…
In fact, he said God sent the right people to me this morning! Check out his before and after picture below…
On May 1st, we launched our “Love Tour” traveling to different counties providing makeovers to those in need… So far, we have made over 15 people, and have toured to two counties (Fulton & Cobb).
Today, we are headed to Clayton County to provide more #mobilemakeovers! We are excited. We have been able to change people’s lives and restore dignity with our closet, hygiene area, and barbershop.
