Our first guest today is Kelsey Moore a 26 year old, blogger and filmmaker. She is from a small town in VA. Her husband of 6 years, Andrew are blessed with a 5 year old son named Carter. Carter was born premature at 26 weeks so he came into this world demanding everyone’s attention from the start. They have a popular You Tube Reality show.
Kelsey got started in filming on you tube because her son loved it. He is like every other 5 year old, now days he is obsessed with it and was begging to do his own show. So one day she gave in and started filming and haven’t stopped since. Once she realized how creative they could be with it and seeing how excited her son Carter would get when he would think of something fun to film there was not stopping them. Kelsey’s goal is to make her You tube show the best family entertainment on You Tube. She feels that it is true you can make money with it and that is a blessing. But she wants to make a lasting impression and teach people how to make memories for their family. This program is for the whole family and they can enjoy it together and take a needed break from their busy day. She wants you to just sit down together and watch them for a bit. She says if you watch it will hopefully bring joy, laughter and will warm your heart and if it does she has done her job, she wants to bring great family programming to all of you. Go to Moore Living on You Tube to see this wonderful show.
Our next guest is Craig Fernandes, President of Patriot Threads; an apparel company. A Non-Profit that donates a portion of all profits to benefit charities – primarily veterans organizations.
The idea came to Craig’s son Brady in the fall of 2015. At that time he was 17 year old was finishing up his shift as a retail clerk at Kinnucan’s Outfitters where he had been employed for the last two years when his idea for a line of apparel came to him as he was putting inventory away. He had been tasked with coming up with a plan for his Capstone Project which is a requirement for every student to graduate from Christian Academy of Knoxville. The idea is to do something that you have an interest in that will spring board you to the next step after high school and also has a philanthropic purpose behind it to help others as well. Some coach teams for disadvantaged youth, others held bake sales to raise money for charity. Brady decided to use the experience from retail job and his eye for style to develop a line of patriotic apparel that he could sell and use the proceeds to raise money for local non-profit organizations that support wounded veterans. You see Brady’s grandfather was a veteran and he wanted to do something that would have a purpose beyond the project. He also had friends and family members that had served and had seen the need brought to light as Veteran’s were a hot topic during the Presidential elections process as well.
That was the beginning of the start of their Patriot Threads Apparel Company. Brady went to his dad and with Craig experience in Marketing the two formed the Company to help Non-Profits primarily veterans organizations. For more information go to www.patriotthreads.org or call 865-805-3238
