I finally realized that to make a positive contribution to society it must be done one life at a time; we want to do it two at a time. That is why we are looking for funding to start DANA'S ANGELS.
DANA'S ANGELS will solicit local businesses and individuals for unsold, overstocked and unwanted merchandise. We will then auction these items through our own auction house, with a goal of 100 items weekly. We have already received commitments from three large retailers(the first three we talked to) who promise to donate on a weekly basis.
Now the best part. We will take 50% of profits to fund an endowment that will provide mentors, athletic gear, musical instruments and computers to at risk and kids from broken homes. We will work with schools to find kids who want to better their lives but don't have financial and/or moral support at home. The second part of DANA'S ANGELS is to employ people who want a second chance; mainly parolees, felons and drug treatment graduates. This group will reoffend over 80% of the time because they have no job opportunities, money or place to live. We will work with parole/probation officers and drug counselors to find employees.
DANA'S ANGELS will use the funding to lease warehouse and office space, purchase a delivery/ pickup van and truck, develop a website and obtain all necessary permits and licenses.
Your donations will be sooooooo greatly appreciated and will be used to make a positive impact two lives at a time.
