BENEFITING: The Empowerment Plan

Tracy Veith

THE STORY:

God has placed a special place in my heart for certain causes, caring, loving and empowering the homeless is one of them.  Please help in raising funds to purchase jackets to some of the homeless in Cincinnati, all the while creating and sustaining jobs for the former homeless in Detroit.

The Empowerment Plan, a Detroit based company focused on creating jobs that lift people out of poverty, created a jacket that doubles as a sleeping bag to keep the homeless warm.  The jacket is water resistant, the sleeves double as a pillow, and it can also be rolled up as an over-the-shoulder bag when not in use.  In addition, the cornerstone of the business model is employing homeless workers to create the jackets.  

Our goal is to fund 20 coats.  Tis the season to think of others by showing some of those down on their luck... love and warmth by encouraging them that a greater future is possible. 

A close friend of mine, Kevin, works closely with the homeless coalition and will ensure all coats go to those most in need.  Below is a link to the EMPWR Coat Project for more information.
