This Saturday, we will be working on the bus again doing small projects… We are less that two and a half weeks away from launching the bus to serve people in need. Get involved and make a difference this weekend by helping us do small projects!
Yesterday, #lovebeyondwalls presented at Woodward Academy (to student leaders & staff) and shared the story surrounding the #mobilemakeovers bus, reasons for being compassionate, and issues surrounding those faced with poverty & homelessness. We are excited to see what project the students launch to assist us with our bus project!
We are excited! This Saturday, we are partnering with Sporty Gils, Inc. and their athletes to put on a pop-up fashion show to raise items for homeless teens. This is going to be really exciting because it will show the teens who are serving the importance of giving back to others, and the value of life. Check out the information below for details.
This past weekend, Derrick Bailey (Principal in Cobb) dropped off several boxes of food raised from a young men’s mentoring group called, “Man or Male.”
This group shows young men the importance of having character and integrity throughout their life. We will use these donations to resource many families that are food insecure in the area where our office is located.
For the last month or so
(since I got off the bus), our team has be diligently working to get the bus up and on the road! It has taken tons of sacrifice, effort, and focus to work on the bus. Along the way, God has sent some really cool people to help out.
On Wednesday, Dave and Darren decided to lay the floors in the bus. As you can see from the picture below, the bus is really starting to change and transform on the inside…
Although we have won’t immediatly have the showers installed (still have more funds to raise), we are aiming to get the bus on the road to start mobilizing barbers/stylist, and people who want to make people over with the closet inside the bus.
Help us to continue to make a difference. We’re participating in the 5th annual ‘IKEA Life Improvement Co-worker Challenge’ – a program that gives our charity the chance to win a makeover from IKEA (16th Street Location). This makeover will help us create a training space for those in the community that is functional, inviting and well-designed — a place our community can feel welcome and comfortable.
Participating is simple. All you have to do is go to www.IKEA-USA.com and vote for (#lovebeyondwalls). You can vote once a day from February 16th until March 2nd. It’s that easy! To vote, click the image below. Thanks for your support!
Yesterday, Terence got a chance to present to over 70 up and coming community leaders from Morehouse & Spelman College about #lovebeyondwalls, and what t means to make a difference in the world through service.
The talk took place in front of the group “Project House” (an organization led by the student body that organizes students to serve among the homeless population).
Below is a picture of Jairus Davis (E board Member) that invited us out and put this on at Dansby Hall.
