Blessings, Harmony. It seems appropriate that you are the first person I shared this with. You wrote me shortly after I joined CARE2 almost two years ago, and knew about our homeless situation here in sunny San Luis Obispo County, California. There is a low count of 2000 presently. More than 60% are women and children. An '82 single wide mobile home goes for $250K. But this is where my homeless experience began in 1988. You'd been here at our shelter, yourself. The serendipity of this astounded me. I know nothing happens by accident. The trials of living homeless in America with two young daughters gave me the passion to design our product core, my magnificent obsession for now almost eighteen years. My designs first reflected the three eco regions I lived in. I first went underground, living in the Northwest, Southwest and back home to California, to complete Brave New Wares mission seven years ago. I've known other women who lived with the fear of being found and murdered with their children. Yet, were not able to turn their backs, and dedicated their new lives to reach out to women still out there. I know my experience altered my life forever. This year Brave New Wares are full grown, and ready to give birth to one Community Enterprise, after another. How fast we grow is dependent only on how many people believe in their life altering power to change once hopeless lives into lives with hope for a future. Blessings, Harmony Eve
