Dear Covenant to Empower Children, Inc.
I was in a Potlatch CoHousing Cafe
just the other repair-invested day
for both ego and eco therapy.
Our host introduced
this Potlatch SkillShare event
speaking to himself:
The less I share skills and resources
on cooperative terms
of common educational PositivEnergy endeavor,
The more plutocratically powerful
of private learning affluence
tumors growing within healthier democracy,
for restoring justice,
as cooperatively-owned peace.
So it was
I thought of you,
covenanted to caregiving
and not corporate profit,
your mission to restore therapeutic health
to under-nourished children
and their not-full-healthing families.
with broken belongings,
longings for everything therapeutic cafes
and lending libraries
for computers and karaoke machines,
musical instruments and microphones,
speakers and costumes,
clothing and furniture,
bicycles and toys,
stories and songs
ecotherapeutic co-housing and garden fixers
to extend family neighborhood co-responsibilities.
by non-violent therapeutic innovators,
local restorative justice administrators,
nonprofit co-housing and community gardening
and nutritious interior-exterior landscaping,
inside-outside nurturing design,
cooperatively-invested and self-managing families
growing neighborhood organizations.
Covenants to prosper
tool and toy and school libraries,
co-housing recreation skill-sharing centers,
ego-ecotherapeutic non-violent churches and synagogues
and temples and courthouses
and cooperatively-owned city halls
co-investing in ego/ecotherapeutic businesses
including skilled do-it-ourselfers,
professional hurt child cooperative parents
with childcare giving repair businesses,
apprentices interested in synergetic
in neighborhood planning and co-design,
outdoor installations and ego/eco-evaluations
of health care giving as love receiving.
This Potlatch Cafe and Garden
was multiculturally filled
to multigenerational capacity
with innovative self and other fixers
about facilitating ego/eco-repairs.
Which brings in new employee-owners
to local repair incubation businesses
and empowerment cafe members
undertaking and overtaking cooperatives
for ecopolitical health-wealth restorations.
Healthy keys to continually growing
Potlatch CoHousing Cafes
are those held by community WinWin
outdoor-indoor entertainment innovators,
street clowns and village green sages,
parental fools and innocent teacher healers
in love with therapeutic life.
Covenants to CareGive Children
and their cooperative co-housed families
coordinated and ecotherapeutically operated
by established hospitality foundations
like local cooperative-restorative climate-care governments
and nonprofit empowerment missioned organizations
committed to potlatch provide
investments and therapeutic non-violent staff
and volunteer intern cooperative familycare members
to coordinate co-housing residents
and neighborhood transporters
and young cafe and garden after-school volunteers.
Covenants for Healing
could grow cooperatively owned therapeutic cafes
and multicultural multigenerational homes
accessible co-housing options
for nurturing community residents
rather than discarding,
Incubating interdependent potlatch stewards
with secular-sacred dipolar co-arising faith
in PositivEnergy Democracy
for growing neighborhood
in CoRedemptive Gardens.
With warm hope
you are enjoying this child empowering day
