Rawality Reversing Diabetes House, or “Rawality House,” has had a tremendous month – which happens to have coincided with National Food Month! For general information about the Rawality House mission and vision, see the prior post.
During “National Food Month,” in addition to having productive meetings with regional partners, we have developed a relationship with the first family that Rawality House will work with as our Pilot Program. While meeting the family we are working with in the Pilot Program, Derrick, an artist, husband, and father of 3, shares a laugh with Rawality House director Michael Bedar:

Reggie, Rawality House Transformation Coach, has some good rapport with Derrick:

The home in the West Oakland neighborhood where Rawality House’s pilot program is starting:
In this pilot program, the family, themselves, will be paying for the food at an expense level that works for their living budget. Also, rent will, of course, be covered by the family, who will continue living in their home where the pilot program is taking place.
The pilot program’s expenses will include:
- Transportation for the pilot program’s coaches and live-food trainers to and from the family’s home, and sometimes to get food supplies.
- The mostly-volunteer coaching, training, and holistic medical supervision staff who require some financial support.
- Filming the pilot program, requiring camera and data storage equipment, and the camera operators.
- Fees for a leading-edge website on which we will deliver entertaining, inspiring, and educational video shows of the transformation of the family – using today’s interactive live-streaming, chatting, and forums!
For the above items, we are raising $2011.12 in funds to start the pilot project in a few weeks. Please support our pilot now with funds and intangibles, too!
