I have always been a firm believer in giving back to the community. I come from a long line of men who have done and continue to do the same. If you have followed me over the years, you know well my adoration for the work Ms Ber-Henda Williams does with her “Power of Girlhood” girls mentoring program in my community. After a recent meeting, I have now become a Board Member!!
The work and passion Power of Girlhood brings to a young lady’s life is critical in these days and times. Our young ladies are at incredible risk and we must pitch in as a community to turn the tide in this war on our girls. Our girls must be protected at all times and in all areas of life! Now that I am a Board member, here are a few things to look for:
- 10% Of any proceeds I receive from bookings will go to Power of Girlhood for supplies. They are always needed.
- This Friday October 11th, I will be Volunteering at this year’s International Day of the Girl at Wayne State. I need your help as well!!! If you can join me at Wayne State this Friday at 10am and can stay till at least 3pm, please email me at Motorcitygreene@gmail.com and I will send you all the details! Thanks in advance!!!
- My favorite store in Detroit to get my gear from ThreeThirteen has joined in as well! Go to Threethirteen on Livernois in Detroit on the Avenue of Fashion and mention The Power of Girlhood. A portion of your purchase will be donated to The Power of Girlhood! Trust me Fellas, the body butter they sell there will have the women all over you!! Not to mention all the latest apparel for that first date!
Making change in the community does not come from how you are heard on social media but how your presence is felt in the community by the works of your hands. Pro activity keeps us from learning the hard lessons that came from our inactivity. Jump in if you hear me!
