Buy One Bless One #itsalllove365
My name is Rashad. My friend and I have spent the last 10 years visiting the Juvenile Detention center in our city in hopes of bridging the gap and changing the mindsets of the youth. The goal is simple, it's a family centered movement that focuses on understanding love as an action and not just a word.
The motto #itsalllove is about the family and respecting life and before you can respect another life you must respect your own. We start with the father because that's where the seed comes from and understanding that value keeps you locked in on the end goal. #morelife
In the process of visiting the youth in the city we hoop and spend countless hours sharing our mistakes so that the next generation can make the right decisions. I met a young man who wanted to change for the better. He was a young man in need of help and unfortunately that help didn't come soon enough. I missed a month at juvey and when he was released he was shot and killed.
"It's all love," is a dream unfulfilled, it's a hope, it's a never-ending goal for the ghetto. To me...love is righteousness in it's purest form and anything done righteously yields positive results. "You will know them by their fruits."
The It's All Love Hoodies are the first step for and my little family. The plan has always been to spread the message but when the lil homie died along with so many other young men around the city we just wanted to share a message of love for one another.
The tree on the hoodie is symbolic to life and how important each individual is to the cycle. The roots are hidden beneath the surface but are forever connected to the branches if they are doing their job. The roots symbolize the old heads and the branches symbolize the youth. Everyone has a duty to prepare a place for the next generation. #generationallove
The fist is symbolic to unity. The ultimate sign of coming together. If we all come together then you can't divide 1. It's the only way to build, it's each indiviual's job to protect and love one another.
The hoodies won't get the job done alone. Actions over words is the hope. Love is a verb. We have to create new habits and righteous moves for the youth to follow. These moves will hopefully benefit our children children. That's why we are here and the gift that we've been blessed with from birth. The biggest blessing is life.
"The smartest thing I've ever learned is that I don't have all the answers just a little light to call my own. Though it pales in comparison to the overarching shawdows, a speck of light can reunite the Son/Father and swallow darkness whole." #righteousatlast
The goal is to bless up. For every hoodie that is purchased by an old head a youngster receives one for the love. You can also sponsor a youngster for #15 dollars if you aren't a hoodie fan. It's already been a blessing in the City of Shreveport I hope it spreads and my children's children see love too.
