MEN'S HOME FOR THE DISABLED
You have heard much from us about this home - almost forgotten. When over 80 men died a year ago, you came to the rescue to help us build the emergency fund in the Cabbage Potato Club and we need to do some additional building of this to prepare for winter. However, now we want to share with you are next plans to bring hope and dignity to the men.
1. We are going to start a "cottage industry" with them. We will start with hiring two staff (residents) for credits or LAMb BUCKS! Each LAMb Buck will be worth $1. Our staff (residents) will be directors of specific areas; art department, wood working shop, electrical shop, music studio, spiritual department, shoe repair shop, barber shop, etc. We have persons identified for four of these department directors - remember ALL residents in the home.
2. Profits for the different items made will be used to purchase more supplies and eventually "hire" more staff for the area. Each person earns only LAMb Bucks. All funds will be managed by our on the ground staff. No money will exchange hands - to keep corruption down. When a resident gets LAMb Bucks, they can shop for what they want. For example, 500 com equals about 12 LAMb Bucks and can purchase a nice pair of tennis shoes and remember, most do not have shoes there - most just have slippers and bad ones to "boot!"
3. Project #1 - Art Director; Project #2 - Spiritual Director; Project #3 - Barber; Project #5 - Shoe Repair Shop (we are going to get a supply of broken shoes from local churches, they will repair and give to residents!); Project #6 - Music Director; Project #7 - To Be Announced.
4. We need sponsors. We will be paying 12 LAMb Bucks a month for each director. In addition, we need LAMb Bucks for the workers for their work by the hour.
5. We need sponsors to buy/sell their products. We will work on that here and bring much home each time to sell and the profits taken back to continue the project.
Sound good? Just think - right now the men are painting rooms, sweeping the floors, a new floor has gone down. We can use LAMb Bucks for hot water heaters - fixing their toilets, buying eating utensils, helping their cooks with some new equipment
But MOST OF ALL WE CAN BRING HOPE AND DIGNITY TO THE SOULS!
