Help me to Give bLack to More by making a Donation

As you should know, The Give Black Foundation has been giving back to Blacks actively since 2011.  We launched the Foundation in March 2017 with a fundraising goal of at least $10,000.  In 2017, we shipped and cleared two barrels of books to Jamaica and also participated in Read Across Jamaica Day on May 9 by reading to children at Jamaica Basic House School.  We also donated a barrel of books to
Ethlyn’s Home and those books were shipped to Kenya for needy children.  Three children in Ghana were sponsored from funds raised at our Annual Women’s History Month event in March 2017 and we donated to the Hurricane relief efforts which affected the Caribbean in 2-17.  We also supported  Shantel Ashmead , a young lady who lives in New Jersey as she went to Las Vegas for dance camp.  We made a donation to the  Peace and Love Academic Scholarship (PALAS) because we believe in supporting other nonprofits who are also helping the less fortunate. We also made smaller donations and continued to help those in need in 2017.
This year, in 2018, we want to do MORE so your support and donations are critical.
We welcome any and all FREE WILL DONATIONS.
Please click HERE to DONATE.
Very many thanks to all our sponsors and donors who have given so generously to The Give Black Foundation already and thanks in advance to those of you who will be donating in ensuing days. Never forget that giving back does not always involve money, but it is really about making a difference in the lives of those less fortunate.  There are other ways you can make a difference so email info@igiveblack.org and ask us all the pertinent questions you have.  We can also match you with a project of your choice as we have tons of friends and organizations who are also giving bLack.

PREVIOUS POST.

Welcome to the Holidays.  We are excited to report that we returned from Ghana, West Africa at the end of November and have since had an Appreciation Party on December 5 for all our donors and supporters. Very many thanks to all who attended the party and celebrated the beginning of the Holidays with us.  It was an awesome party!   The trip to Ghana this year was my best yet, and a lot of that has to do with the fact that I really feel like I belong there (now), plus the group I traveled with has the most incredible energy and it was a joy to be on tour with such lovely people.  The real icing on the cake for me was the actual volunteer work that I did while there (this time) and interacting with the many children from 4 schools, and various individuals I met while I was there.  From the donations I received at my Birthday Fundraiser, we visited the Trinity Home Academy and gave $200US to the school.  We visited BenuVillage and gave $200US to the school.  We visited our host school, Akoma International Academy and gave $3600 in sponsorships for a total of 13 children, spent a considerable time with the students and faculty and also donated $250 for the revamping of a new website.  While we were in Ghana, we launched #EveryGirlCan Ghana and trained 3 interns who can now also facilitate the program even when we are not physically there in Ghana.  Ten young ladies who attend Akoma International Academy were the first on the continent of Africa to go through the curriculum and our goal is to have at least 100 young ladies trained by 2017.  Click HERE to see the EGC album and stay tuned for more from our trip to Ghana.
