The concept of One Community Many Voices (OCMV) charity work derived from several “WHAT IF” conversations. What if… we could create a means for good acts to be contagious – like acts of kindness, generosity, and cooperation across community sectors? What if… instead of worrying about protocols and bureaucratic systems; we streamline and developed a proactive preventive vs. crisis reactive system to help neighbors? What if… we pooled from our neighbors’ talents, resources, and connections to help our fellow neighbors? What if… we involve previous recipients in the process of paying it forward allowing them to help someone else? Combined these conversations with the belief that a person was given two hands- one hand to help themselves, the second hand to help others, and you have the makings of OCMV.

Life’s challenges are not supposed to paralyze you, they’re supposed to help you discover who you are.” Bernice Johnson Regain

The shifts in our local and national economies and attitudes have shown how easy it is to become vulnerable or give up on dreams or potentials. As well as demonstrate the challenges of bouncing back after a hardship. At the inception of OCMV, Reade Brower provided one time financial hand outs to people that needed a small amount of money to get back on their feet. Through both trial and error and evidence-based research from Dr. Donna Beagle, Reade and the founding members of OCMV believe that sustain success depends on more than positive words and a one time financial boost that is why we created the Art of Good Fellowship – Paying it Forward One Neighbor at a Time model.

STRUCTURING the RELATIONSHIP

OCMV has developed a model that provides a means of funding a portion of the OCMV’s philanthropy through establishing a business venture arm. OCMV Promotions LLC exists to generate profit that will fund the OCMV charitable operational expenses. Income is generated from the sales of co-created products developed with our Maine business partners and various events and excursions. Further information is available about OCMV Promotions LLC. The success of the company, will allow OCMV philanthropy to have a steady stream of income.
