Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
Peace Centers International, Inc. is a social venture dedicated to the community and focuses on a solution to one of world's greatest quandaries: the search for inner and world peace. Peace Centers International, Inc. is a radical new idea in the personal transformation business, what we call a social franchise(SM).
We have chosen to create this model because we feel an urgent need to scale up and replicate a program that has proven itself successful on a local level. We have committed ourselves to defining and offering an "upscalable," replicable, financially viable package of information, programs, events and other tools to experience peaceful living across cultural lines. To the extent these programs produce changed lives, we have an obligation to scale up and expand our social impact. We believe the social franchise model is the most efficient and effective way to accomplish this mission.
