Create Meaning by Helping Others

The Flint Project

One of our founders at Rare Breed Apparel in partnership with Greater Grace Temple Taylor to assist in delivering water our brothers and sisters in Flint, MI. We are our brothers keepers that's what Rare Breed Apparel is all about...inspiring the world everyday by doing something that makes an impact in others life. Such a humbling and rewarding experience to talk with the residents face to face.

What is your purpose? Why are you hear on this earth? What are you truly meant to do while on this life journey? These are questions all of us ponder at different times. Whether we work for someone else and realize this is not where I should be or working for yourself and recognizing that this is not the business I want to run. If your business or relationships have no purpose then why have them. All they will do is drain your life and leave you an empty shell of yourself.

We recently partnered with Greater Grace Temple Taylor to distribute water the residents in Flint, MI. Different people coming together not all of us knowing one another but it did not matter because there was purpose and meaning. People shared in something common to each one of us and that was to go to Flint and talk to local residents while distributing water. Certainly it was only a minimal contribution in comparison to what they need but we were not there to solve the problem but contribute what we could.

Have you ever needed something and someone took the time to look at you, talk and encourage you personally? What I discovered about our company was a deeper meaning of why Rare Breed Apparel exist. Watching everyone work together with no complaints, debating, no big I's or little you's just discovering meaning by helping others. Which is why we do not want you to buy from us because we sell apparel but because of why we do what we do.  When you support us we in turn support others and  that is creating meaning by helping others. The financial help flows from one hand to the other so that everyone benefits.

In talking with the Flint residents and listening to them it was very humbling and brought a deeper meaning of our purpose. You do not lose anything when you give to others it is actually more beneficial because it helps you discover your purpose, why you are here and pushes you to become more than what you are...Inspire the World Everyday! Email us or leave us a message about how you inspire the world, we'd love to post it.
