My mother’s desire was to move back to Antigua, West Indies where she used to say, “meh navel string buried.” My mother’s dream was to build an educational center that could support individuals and communities in healing themselves. My mother’s destiny will be to leave a legacy for the next generation because Miss Daisy’s Daughter, DeBorah, will be the driving force behind the Pushing Daisy Drive.
I’m definitely in this for the long hall. With a masters degree in nonprofit management from GSU, I feel confident this is a goal I can accomplish with vision, commitment, and especially your help. The drive is broken down into three phases listed below.
PHASE ONE- START UP FUNDS
OBJECTIVE: To fund the start-up costs and planning involved to build an Eco-friendly home and educational center in Antigua, West Indies, that will also serve as a private operating foundation in honor of my mother’s legacy of service.
This fundraising goal is based off of initial research and may be more or less than allotted. Any additional funds raised will automatically go into the second phase of the drive.
$3,000 Start-up Fees for Private Foundation & Association Membership Fees
$3,000 Earth Design Training & Planning
$6,000: Total Fundraising Goal
PHASE TWO- BUILDING FUND
OBJECTIVE: To build an Eco-friendly home and educational center in Antigua, West Indies, that will also serve as a private operating foundation in honor of my mother’s legacy of service.
Before my mother made her transition, we used to talk about her healing herself first and then helping others. Like many other healers I know, her focus was always on what needed to be done “out there,” and I would be the one to gently reminder her that charity begins at home before it goes abroad. Our plan was to: 1) heal her blood clots first 2) build a two story Eco-friendly house in Antigua where we could live on the top floor and use the bottom floor as an educational center, similar to my good friends Aeeshah & Kokomon Clottey at Attitudinal Healing Connection in Oakland, CA. 3) create a non-profit and expand our outreach programs.
My mother had a big heart and wasn’t afraid to take chances. Yet, (being as stubborn and prideful as her person was at times) many of her personal and business choices weren’t well thought out and left her with nothing financially. At the time of her death, she was retired and had long lost our family home in California. My mother was living with and caring for a 93 year old family friend in St. Thomas, USVI, and always hoped she could go back home someday, yet not knowing how financially. I hoped to encourage her to heal herself of the blood clots, and then by pooling resources, build something in Antigua on some land my father gave me in an ideal location close to town.
PHASE THREE- OUTREACH FUND
“There is no success without successors” -Author unknown
OBJECTIVE: To leave a legacy of service for the next generation via a scholarship and endowment fund in memory of my late mother, Daisy Elizabeth Teresa King Bellony.
Setting up a family private operating foundation allows me to pass down a legacy of service that will also include the importance of self-care and financial stability. This is something I know that I must master myself, and heading up this project is a wonderful way for me to “walk my talk.”
#1 MAKE A DONATION:
You can make a donation of ANY amount. However, with a minimum $10 Manifestation donation, your name and/or organization will be listed on the Pushing Daisy Contribution page.
Note: 100% of donations goes directly to drive
#2 BUY A DESTINY CARD REPORT OR COACHING SERVICES
After listening to an interview with the extraordinary coach Brian Whetten, I learned that 10% of a coach’s success is based on the techniques used, 30% is based on the coach’s energy/personality, and 60% is based on the client’s commitment. This changed my perspective dramatically! Although, I know the Destiny Cards and other healing modalities I use have proven to be powerful, what’s more powerful is the client’s commitment. My Approach to Coaching Services is based on the clients commitment to change and not on being entertained.
