Popcorn for the People

As we enter into November, the holiday season is once again upon us. We hope that all of our friends, followers, and subscribers are staying healthy and most importantly practicing self love. This month it’s important to be mindful and recognize everything that you are grateful for. We understand that this can be difficult, especially with everything the universe threw at us to this year! However, when those negative thoughts creep in, try combating it with a positive thought, feeling or vision. These positive thoughts will propel you in the right direction.

We would like to continue to thank those who have given us suggestions for the charity of the month. Our Crystal Council Family continues to show support and love to the charities featured monthly. For the month of November we will be featuring Popcorn for the People, a nonprofit subsidiary of a charitable organization called “Let’s Work For Good”. Founded in 2015 by Barbara Zimmerman-Bier and Steven Bier, their goal was to focus on creating meaningful and lasting employment for adults with autism and developmental disabilities." Their son Sam who is on the spectrum was working as a grocery cart employee for six years, yet he wanted a more meaningful job. They found that jobs were scarce for those with autism because more skilled positions required a tougher interview process. This can prove difficult because people with autism tend to struggle with understanding nuance and social conventions.

Recognizing the lack of skilled employment options for adults with developmental disabilities, the Biers decided to create jobs themselves.They did this through a popcorn venture out of New Jersey with all of the profits going to their charitable organization. Popcorn for the People was born! This company provides an environment for employees to learn difficult skills like food preparation and money management.

This month's charity stone will be Mystic Merlinite also known as Indigo Gabbro. Mystic Merlinite is a magical stone and is strongly linked with the energies of all the elements. It can aid one in magical manifestation and awakening one to the knowledge of their truest self. It assists in understanding both our light and shadow sides, while bringing one to their inner core where the light and darkness are fully visible. The purpose of this is to bring the parts of the self that are shrouded in darkness towards the light of the heart, so that one may achieve harmony with both sides. During this process, one must embrace these negative qualities with love and acceptance, while forgiving yourself for the very things you may be wishing to forget. The lessons learned from the shadow side can lead one towards a new direction in life, thus allowing one to truly appreciate life’s precious moments. The energy that radiates from Mystic Merlinite will guide you through this repairing process and lead to true self-realization. For every crystal purchased, 100% of all proceeds will be donated to Popcorn for the People.
