and move past their mistakes!
Why is Character Counts! starting businesses?
going to educate and empower our employees.
Conscious Threads seeks to educate to the issues ex-felons face as they re-enter society after serving time. We use ugly t-shirts and misprinted or outdated promo items to create fun, smart new ones. Like those objects, many of us have things in our past that are not pretty. Like those materials, their lives are not disposable. With creativity, love & determination all can be made anew and valued!
Why a food business?
We all know the food in jail stinks! Having eaten institutional food for a long time, Conscious Eats is a way for them to not only learn how to be healthy and respect their own bodies, it allows them to get creative and eat well! The food is healthy, delicious and affordable. Food is love, it is about bringing people together to break bread and to create meaningful relationships.
Through Conscious Story, we hope to help the message of creativity and renewal to spread far and wide! Story telling is the natural way of creating a new story in the process of personal transformation. The act of telling story helps us to envision a new one! Healing and creativity is fostered through story, music, and film.
