Please visit us at our sister site at www.igiveblack.org to see how you can help us to help others. For very many years, we have been donating proceeds from our events to various charities. We also encourage you to let us know how YOU give bLack so we can all work together. Very many thanks to everyone who donated to the event this year. The main event was held on September 19, 2015 at Knights of Columbus in College Park, MD and because of the donors, we are able to sponsor the annual education of 12 children who attend Akoma International Academy: Kingsford Donkah and Enoch Gyekye (sponsored by Ron Munia), Joyce Gyekye (sponsored by Melrose Parks and Reshada Pullen-Jireh), Nicholas Waters (sponsored by Lewis Buchanan), Grace Essibir (sponsored by me aka Yaa Gyasi Peppy Parke ), Francesa Arthur and Christina Nyan (sponsored by Pamela Oguagha), Abigail Sagoe, Simon Cobbinah, Tina Thompson, Harriet Inkoom, and Monica Koomsom (sponsored by the collective listed below).
