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.  Since the year started, 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 have been shipped to Kenya and will be given to children when Ethlyn arrives in Kenya around October 1.  Already, we have raised enough funds from our Women’s History Month event to sponsor 3 children who attend the Akoma International Academy in Ghana.  We will travel to Ghana in November of this year and donate to an orphanage and a couple other schools.  We also supported  Shantel Ashmead , a young lady who lives in New Jersey as she went to Las Vegas for dance camp.  We are also committed to supporting a young man who desperately needs a job and will pay his salary while he works with one or sister organizations, Mercy Outreach Ministries that cannot afford to pay him.  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 have plans to visit Haiti later this year and are also committed to purchasing a projector for Jamaica House Basic School.  We can do MORE with your donations so please understand that the our Fundraising DRIVE is the biggest event for us this year and we need your support!  We welcome any and all FREE WILL DONATIONS.
Please click HERE to DONATE.  This online event will close on November 12 to give us time to process donations to take with us to Ghana on November 17.
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.

VERY MANY THANKS TO OUR SPONSORS:

Welcome to America: A Caribbean Musical
Welcome To America tells the story of Sabrina Barnes, a talented, unsophisticated, and ambitious young woman from the Caribbean, who leaves her home behind and arrives in America with big dreams and her determination to become a star.  She soon learns, however, that her island naiveté and the harsh realities of her newly adopted country may put both her goals and her future in great jeopardy.
“Welcome to America: A Caribbean Musical is a refreshing take on an old narrative. The story of the immigrant in modern day USA is belly-laugh-funny, deeply sad, and incredibly inspiring. The dialogue is quick witted and spot on for New Yorkers. The songs are both new and familiar and they break open the hard edge reputation of New York City residents to reveal the collage of small towns we all come from: Jamaican, Puerto Rican, Trinidadian, etc. In the end, we are neighbors, trying to make a living, make sense of family, find love and seek joy while we muddle stylishly along,” Staceyann Chin – Tony Award winning poet, activist, and author of The Other Side of Paradise.
Award winning singer, actor and producer, Andrew Clarke plays the role of Elijah, Sabrina’s longtime friend and possible romantic interest who encounters his own obstacles in his pursuit of his American entertainment career. A graduate of the Edna Manley College for the Performing Arts in Jamaica, Clarke’s previous credits include In Arabia We’d All Be Kings at the Shadowbox Theater, Girl Without Wings at the IATI Theater and Fences at the Jamaica Performing Arts Centre.
Andrew Clarke and Dominique Allen Lawson played lead roles in the glowingly received World Premiere performances of Welcome To America in New York in April 2017. The two singer/actors lead a multi talented ensemble from across the Caribbean Diaspora for the shows, which were resoundingly successful.
Described by its creators as a universal story of hope and aspiration, Welcome to America explores the assimilation of a newly arrived undocumented Caribbean immigrant in the United States, and the complex pursuit of the American dream.

So much has happened since we last connected at the end of March!  The first of which is that we did launch Season 4 of PEP Talk at #EveryWomanCan. We are waiting on the editors to get back to us with some finished material so we can share but we did interviews with Lady Flame, Reshada Pullen-Jireh and Tony of Sweet Home Jamaica.

The event itself was awesome and well attended with everyone visibly enjoy themselves.  Shout outs again to our performerStrykers Posse Reggae Band, J Pope, Tasha T and Lady Flame.  The highlight of the evening was that the painting done by Reshada (see article to the left) which was auctioned and now 2 of the 10 children I am fundraising for this year will have their annual school education taken care of. Many thanks again to our awesome sponsors, supporters and attendees.  ClickHEREto see the event photos and do remember that this annual event is held on the last Saturday in March, so start planning for next year’s event.

From April 22-25, I had the great opportunity to visit Atlanta and was hosted by Bomani Tyehimba ofAfrica for the Africans& Friends.  It was an amazing weekend and included us doing a LIVE PEP Talk Shoot regarding this year’s mission trip to Ghana! I also got to explore the City and have some fun as well.  I had such a joyous time visiting Ras Marvin who is the President of the Atlanta Division 421 of the UNIA-ACL and realized that his division needs help in terms of getting a better office space. Please look out for a Go Fund Me Campaign on that, and also clickHEREto learn more about the Collective Black People’s Movement which Ras Marvin also manages.

As we are into May, the month in which MOTHERS are celebrated, I want to remind  still cannot forget March, the month in which WOMEN were celebrated.  It was in that month that I got the opportunity to express heartfelt THANKS to everyone who was a part of#EveryWomanCan2016.  The event was awesome, and I’m not the only one who is saying that. I really appreciate all my sponsors (DSV Group, LLCSave WatarDenise DixonBertha CrossSatay IsraelAlex FlemmingsShaka WatsonCody CurryRead Across Jamaica, Umoja Kuumba, Balando DulstonBrenda Liddell, andBlack Child Development Institute-DC Metro) who did not hesitate to be a part of the event.

To the performers Jasmine PopeTasha Tee and Lady Flame, you ladies killed it and I was enjoying the performances so much that I did not even want to stop to take photos or videos. People are still talking about you so please understand that YOU were the real stars on Saturdays and I am blessed to know you so I can share you with others.

The event was the first FUNdraiser for my Annual Mission Trip to Ghana, West Africa, and I want to express very many thanks to artist Reshada Pullen-Jireh for creating such a beautiful painting which was bidded on and won by Ron Munia, who also has sponsored children from Akoma International Academy (AIA) before.  See how the world turns?  The proceeds raised from the sale of the painting will go towards sponsoring 2 children who attend AIA for the 2016-2017 school term.  To RSVP for the Annual Birthday FUNdraiser and/or donate towards a child’s annual education, clickHERE.

Please check out the photos from Shaka HERE, stay connected to each other and email me under separate cover so we can continue to work together.

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.
