So, I guess we got lazy yesterday while we were packing up for the road or we underestimated the time we needed to get everything we own back inside the 2 vehicles. Anyway we had planned one being set up to give away Free Jewelry by 9 AM and we ended up getting it done about noon.
We chose to shoot this video late in the day because frankly we don’t think about the website, promotion or shooting videos when people are actually in front of us. When we think about those things is during the times when people are not around, then when they are here all we really think about is how to make the best difference in their lives as we can.
The business of free jewelry
In the past a lot of people we talk to want to know how we can afford give away the jewelry we make for free, and the truth is we can’t, but we do! I know that doesn’t make sense to other people, but it does to us. Our mission truly is to “Change the world, one Smile at a time”.
We believe what happens to people in life really isn’t important to having a good life, or a bad life. What we believe is important is how they deal with what life throws their way and they attitudes they bring with them in life.
Today’s Numbers Estimates
- People who stopped by = 46
- Jewelry given away = 150
- Man hours sitting in the Desert sun = 14
- Gallons of water drank while sitting in the Desert sun = 5
- Time to make jewelry given away = 17 hours
- Cost of materials to make jewelry given away = unknown
- Cost of fuel used to travel 6 miles to give away jewelry = $6
- Number of people who offered us gas money = 4
- Total gifts toward gas fund = $23
As you can see, we don’t do this for any monetary compensation, we do it because we care about other people’s well being more than we care about our own. We think that people deserve more, but this is what we can do.
AND maybe the most important thing is that we believe in our own silly little way we make a huge difference in people’s lives.
