If you believe in literacy, you are someone who wants to know things to improve your life. Or, you want to teach someone else how to become literate in a topic.

How do we define literacy today? In the olden days, literacy referred to the ability to read and write. Today, we know literacy to be knowledgeable and competent in a specific topic area.

As a writer, I am especially interested in promoting literacy. So, this page will contain information on different types of literacy.

I believe that the world has largely become illiterate in how to love and respect one another. We see unprecedented violence, poverty, hate, abuse in unbelievably high numbers. It is my vision to promote literacy of every kind. I am using this page to promote literacy, especially love literacy.

What is Love Literacy?

When you love someone, you respect them and want only the best for them. This means you reach out and serve a certain community with love. We are looking to add value to their lives. Adding value to someone’s life can be done in many ways. For a copywriter, it means telling the world about helpful products and services.

One way I am promoting love literacy is to help non-profit organizations raise awareness to their target markets. By working with non-profit organizations as well as for profit business organizations, we work to add value. Or, the personalized word search puzzle is a unique gift for friends, family members, business colleagues. The personalized word search puzzle contains variations about a person’s name.  See the sample word search puzzle for Thomas.

Projects based and created in love raise the planet’s vibration. How am I contributing to and promoting love literacy? I am helping businesses connect with people in their marketplace. How am I doing this? I am creating very popular word puzzles to use for customer amusement, attraction, education, engagement, fun, information and customer retention. When businesses sell products and services, they are serving a market. By creating a unique word puzzle for a specific market, a part of the fee I charge goes toward a worthy cause.

For example, my husband and I are both military vets. I am currently involved in a fundraiser for homeless military veteran housing. My goal is to raise $2500 for the laundry room in the facility especially being renovated for female homeless vets with 8 additional rooms that will be divided between male and female vets. With the support of local and/or global businesses, I am able to fulfill my dream of helping homeless veterans get back on their feet again.

Here are the details of this fundraiser:

If you are a business interested in customer attraction and retention, think about how to uniquely engage and stay in touch with your customers. A simple way is through customized word search puzzles.  I create them for you and design them especially to stay connected with your customers. They can be used to:

  • Engage
  • Entertain
  • Have fun
  • Educate
  • Inform

Millions of people LOVE doing word search puzzles. Here’s where these puzzles can be used:

  • restaurants
  • automotive repair
  • dentist offices
  • doctor offices
  • medical test waiting rooms
  • people receiving chemotherapy treatments
  • loved ones with dementia or in situations where consciously competent folks need to stimulate/improve memory

Here’s how this fundraising effort for homeless military veterans works:

You pay a measly $50 to get a word search puzzle custom created. I donate $45 of that fee to the Valor Home program until I reach my $2500 goal for the laundry room. You keep the puzzle copyright, can make unlimited copies and distribute to your customers or loved ones. Additionally, you get all the credit for looking like a mad, creative genius!

Finally, you stand out to your market and do something your competitors never thought to do for customer attraction, engagement and retention. Also, makes a great gift for those who love something personalized and customized to them. (One caveat, I only do family-rated puzzles. No hate, pornography, violence, religious hate, no politically hateful puzzles, etc.)

But wait! There’s more!

Overseen by the Veterans Administration, Valor Home brings hope and dignity to military vets right here in our community. The program provides a way for homeless veterans to get back on their feet again. As a USAF veteran, I am paying things forward in gratitude for the benefits I received while serving our country and doing my part to keep America free.

Please visit Valor Home, located at 221 W. 21st Street, Lorain, Ohio, 44052, or call for more information at (440) 387-4293.

Thank you for participating in this fundraiser. Your participation can change and perhaps save homeless veterans in Lorain County.

Please watch this page for further developments for Valor Home here in Lorain County, Ohio. If you’d like more information on how you can say thank you to military veterans who are there for us by patriotically serving America, and provide support to get homeless military veterans back on their feet again, please email me at [email protected].

Thank you for your support.
