Orange County needs a new kind of Non-Profit
I'm a volunteer at the wayside project of Orange County. I have a vested interest in Orange County because I was born in southern California.
I have lived in Orange County since 1962. When I was a child my playground was the Orange and Avocado groves by my home. 90 % of Orange county was not even built yet, It was mostly an agricultural area. Life here moved slow then,
and when I look around today at it now, I'm not sure if it is really progress when I see so many people homeless and the middle class is becoming debt slaves to one of the most expensive places to live in the United States.
When I became aware of what the government is at the age of 9 is when for a week we at school we watched on the TV our President Kennedy was shoot. Later when I was going to high school we felt the future was bright and we were going to the moon.
I envisioned by 2015 we would be probably driving around I flying cars. What I see now is a generation of children facing a world quite different then I ever thought would be. For others on the streets of Orange County hopelessness and despair is their reality. All the educational systems, social programs and organizations can't deal with the growing logistics of what is going on with the world, our county or our communities.
My grandfather was an immigrant from Greece that is the birthplace of Democracy. As I see it Democracy is not where politicians could care lees if they get contributions from the people and where their funding for their position is really dependent on corporations funding them to do their biding.
I joined the wayside project of Orange County as a volunteer to bring about change. Positive change for people of our unique country is dependent on people being invoked with the decisions and direction of what is needed.
The history of America I know well. I started my first business at the age of 17 with $200.00 dollars and have been in business for over 40 years. One of the highlights if my career was where I did art framing with my company American Impressions specializing in art that reflected American history and culture. I was invited to go on a private tour of the Smithsonian Museum and the Treasury building in Washington DC what required a screening with the secret service.
What you get as a member of our non-profit is accesses to gifts that are from our members some are free and some are a low cost. If you join as a sponsor you can offer you special package to our list of members too if you like.
To make America great again does not require a politician it requires people. We are the people for the people and by the people. This should start with your local community first. Our model for what we want to do is just that. Build a none profit with the skills and talents of local people and small business people that want to participate in a Non-profit using the resources and ideas of those invoked to benefit both the supporters and people that need help focusing on community with
economic solutions that make seance done with any resources that become available and using them wisely to bring maximum benefit to help as many people as possible. We are a group that is non discriminate made up of people from many countries, colors and walks of life
The wayside project meets every Thursday in Anaheim at the historic Kraemer Building at 201 E. CENTER ST. It built in 1924 it was Anaheim's First Skyscraper and the tallest building in Orange County for over four decades we use the whole basement level of the building and meet at 6:00 PM
If this sounds like a project you would like to be apart of come to a meeting.
These are different ways we are able to help others:
- We help the homeless, disabled and those long-term unemployed with networking and connecting them to resources or promote their talents. After a interview with a human resource volunteer if you have a good story, have something valid to say, art or music you want to share or an experience. Not all people have valid things to say. If we find you have something that is meaningful to broadcast we will see if we can do a FREE movie that people can benefit from.
- We help people a start a small business if you have a plan. Existing companies that are struggling to make it we offer low cost services and a directory listings and media creation.
- We help people in the arts such as artists and musicians to promote their talents. We can do a movies on peoples talents so others can find out about creative people.
- Any one that is interested in being part of our organization in the role of a fund raiser, volunteer or offering their services can meet with us to network. Our goal is to have a warehouse location to expand our services and help more people in different ways.
