Needy Entrepreneurs - An Opportunity For Success

It’s all about recycling and refurbishing donated tools and equipment then redistributing them to young entrepreneurs who have the vocational skills but lack the tools to make use of their skills.

Thanks to those who have contributed.  We are continuing the fundraising until we have at least $10,000 - to get this project going.  The “Circle Our World With Love” awareness campaign is going well. We are almost at the halfway mark with over 12,000 miles dedicated to our “Tools For Empowerment” (TFE) project.  People are dedicating their running, bicycling, and aerobics miles to TFE. This is mainly to develop awareness of the project but we will work to get as many of the miles sponsored later.

The TFE project is about changing lives through the donation of tools. Remember, if you enable one young entrepreneur to be productive, you are also giving a whole family a new lease on life.  That young person will provide for the whole family.  So by contributing $250 for a tool kit, you change the lives of 6 to 8 people in a family.  That’s a nice thing to do.

If you run or bicycle, please join our campaign to “Circle our World With Love” to help us reach 24,901 miles.  Every mile counts, so join the party and dedicate your miles.
