Seeking Partnership with Numi Organic Teas Mosaic would like to explore a strategic partnership with Numi Organic Teas. We believe our nonprofit embodies the vision and values of Numi, celebrating people, nurturing growth, embracing possibilities and creating a positive impact on the planet and community. The following presentation outlines the vision of Mosaic Tea & Coffee. We would love the opportunity to discuss further how we might collaborate in making a significant, lasting and positive impact in the world. The need for The need for Mosaic is a nonprofit, collaborative tea & coffee house and arts venue providing opportunities for people with disabilities to develop skills and relationships. Our Goals Alignment with Numi Organic Teas Mosaic is committed to nurturing fully-accessible art within our region:
Offering a space for local artists to display their art as well as participate in the 2nd Friday Art About
Offering a space for local musicians and theater groups to perform
Building upon Davis ArtsPlay, a free drop-in arts center for children regardless of ability or other societal barrier. Averages 45 kids/session. Education Mosaic is committed to educating the public about disabilities, promoting a holistic view of individuals and the diversity of ability.
Mosaic will provide intensive training on disabilities to all volunteers and employees.
Mosaic will build upon the disability classes begun in the fall of 2012.
Mosaic will offer workshops to the community on disabilities from a strengths perspective Natural Environment Mosaic is committed to the natural environment:
While we will initially be utilizing food items from local vendors, we hope to eventually partner with regional farmers to utilize produce that is not "acceptable" from a grocer perspective, and is often discarded.
There is the potential of growing our own produce in a large, underutilized area next to Mosaic
Mosaic will be using local, organic, gluten-free products whenever possible. Health Mosaic is committed to health:
We believe that a holistic approach to health is important, one which includes healthy food, community, employment and supportive relationships.
Our foods will focus on organic teas, coffee, fresh fruit smoothies (no sugar), and gluten-free bakery products. Our Proposal to Numi Organic Teas Mosaic would love to explore:
1. A strategic partnership that builds upon Numi Tea's commitment to disabilities.
2. Investment in Mosaic as a model for social entrepreneurship that uplifts the values of Numi Organic Teas.
3. Offering in-kind donations or discounted rates for organic teas.
4. Ultimately, Mosaic wants to serve the community, placing people before profit... and we'd love to achieve that in partnership with Numi Organic Teas! We would love the opportunity to begin a conversation with Numi Organic Teas! Please contact Bill Habicht via any of these channels.
