About

OUR SOCIAL MISSION:  This project has many facets which all work together to encourage, develop, and create self-sustainability. Signs 4 Truth™ was an inspired concept based on life experiences and a purpose to provide a path to prosperity for those trapped in generational poverty. On the surface this may seem like a lofty goal looking at our business model, however, please read on. Over 20 years ago a business man had a vision to help people move from welfare to jobs. A few years ago one of the key members of that team moved the concept into a neighborhood. Beginning with a self-governance focus that initiative is proving to be the answer to creating prosperity. We are basing our business within this bottom up neighborhood that is proving there is a solution to poverty.

 Before returning to the discussion of the Signs 4 Truth™ project, we want to share the overarching goals of Seeds of Promise, our social impact partner: 

• Foundational Principles and Desired outcomes for measuring impact: 

– Youth are succeeding in learning and life.

– Families are functioning effectively.

– Adults are engaged in livable wage employment.

– Residents are committed to a wellness based lifestyle. 

– Neighborhood is safe to live, work and play.

– Residents direct the improvement strategy.

– Operations needs to self-funding within five years.

How can Sign 4 Truth achieve all of these goals? By ourselves we can not, however, This is the first business to launch in this neighborhood within the scope of this larger project. As the business grows the products will be produced in the target urban community. Today a small business in this community will be producing some of the items being offered. Our business is to become a training environment for under employed, un-employed, and those who may be returning to the community after incarceration. These jobs will provide much more than income to these employees. 

As the first business to launch within this initiative it provides validation to those who have dreams but are sitting back and waiting to see what happens. 

We are working with, at the time of this draft, 10 individuals wishing to break into prosperity. All of these people have been locked in impoverished situations but they have a dream. The successful launch of Signs 4 Truth™ will motivate more dreamers to take a chance to break free of poverty and reach for the dream of prosperity and self-sustainability. 

PRODUCTS AT THE CENTER OF THE MISSION: Signs 4 Truth™ is creating symbols that are both stylish and communicate a positive message. We all love bright colors and fun shapes so we figured why not merge encouraging messages of hope with common symbols we can wear to share the good news. Our copyrighted concept is to merge positive biblical references with road sign shapes. 

 Additionally, we are introducing our copyrighted concept of See Through Servant ™. What this phrase means is to look at how or what we should do or behave like, not look at our flawed actions. More specifically: You should see God/Jesus by how I relate to you. Focus on Being instead of Doing, Character instead of Action.

 This business and the products we will be introducing all focus on changing lives. We want to change the lives in our community and in similar communities across the country. If you are looking to be part of a cause that has been in development for decades and can reverse the trends of the past 50 years, this is a good place to start. This successful launch is projected to provide the motivation for 20 new businesses in a neighborhood with an average household income of less than $22,000 annually. Signs 4 Truth™ is projected to hire 3-5 people in the next 12 months as our projections are met. 

The first Signs 4 Truth™products include T-shirts, Hoodies, Decals, and 1.25” Metal Key Fobs. We have partnered with many people and businesses in our urban community to assure the production quality will be met. Each team member brings complementary skills and experiences to assure the business will be managed with proper attention. Additionally because this business is part of a larger agenda, there is a great team of mentors and supporters on the sidelines to help as needed.

What is the impact of your Partnership?

• You get cool stuff • You are encouraging others when you display or wear your S4T/STS items • Signs 4 Truth helps people pursue prosperity • Seeds of Promise receives financial support to further their ability to lift others in the community to achieve personal success. 

 Sign 4 Truth™ is specifically presenting messages that are intended to encourage yourself and others. What if one million people became a billboard for positive messages? What if people saw good news instead of discouraging messages? Sign 4 Truth™ items make it easy to be part of the revolution. 

 When you wear or display a Signs 4 Truth™ item, you cast a positive image and message. You support a person changing their life with a new job and training to pursue better jobs. You enable a community to change by becoming prosperous and no longer be captive to entitlements. You also enable this single community project to become part of a model eligible for replication in other impoverished communities across the country. 

We have selected quality garments that will hold their shape and keep you looking all together. The screening is done with care and high quality inks for great durability. We can’t have you looking less than your best if your Signs 4 Truth™ items don’t look their best.

 The decals (approximately 4”) are designed to adhere well to the back and side windows of your car so everyone who passes you can be encouraged with the message of your choice. Of course they don’t have to go on your car, they will stick to most any solid surface. 

The Key Fobs will be solid metal 1.25” approximately and are being tooled as part of this Kickstarter campaign. They will be formed in America using materials that reflect the overall message of Signs 4 Truth™.

 The proceeds of this campaign will be used to complete tooling and increase capacity to serve the demand being anticipated. It will also generate the resources to set up training for those being provided new jobs. That training is not just job training but also support for completing high school, family counseling or any of several other challenges that a person is seeking help with in their personal journey towards prosperity and self-sustainability. Lastly, the proceeds will also be helpful in completing development of numerous other items that will soon be available. 

Signs 4 Truth™ is one piece of a larger body making a positive impact in an urban community. As stated before, a successful launch for this becomes the catalyst for untold others to take a chance on themselves, a neighborhood and a culture. Be a messenger for positive change with Signs 4 Truth™ items. 

 We are developing many other items that will be made available after this campaign. Watch our website and like us on Facebook so you can be among the first to see the new items as they become available. 

 If you would like to learn more about the urban initiative behind this business, be a premium sponsor. We will fly you from any place in the 48 contiguous states to meet with the founders of Seeds of Promise, meet the Signs 4 Truth™ team, see the operations, and receive support to replicate the community model that has become the national model for self-governance for a large global foundation. Oh, and we will also make sure you get some S4T wear when you meet us. 

How will these investments be used?

We will be using these investments to cover the Cost of Tooling/screens/programing, Development of more designs, Equipment investment, Legal costs (copyright, patent, trademarks), and reward production and delivery.

Risks and challenges

The greatest obstacle we envision is meeting excessive production requirements from this campaign. In the event demand for these products reaches significant levels, we will need to partner with additional producers that will enable us to meet the targeted delivery dates. We have business ties with other local vendors that would help us fulfill demand. The artwork is already completed for each of the designs included in this campaign and the primary suppliers have ample inventory to meet the most significant demands.
