The goal is to give these children the opportunity to find their passion and to thrive amongst their peers, in class and the community at large.
We are all about raising leaders for the future generation. To be a part of this campaign make a donation by clicking the donate button on this website.

Surely I have an opinion about the ice buckeck challenge but the fine people at socialbrite.com have done it justice, thus I have decided to share their post instead.
3 reasons I’ve decided to embrace this campaign — and why you should, too.
As you all likely know by now, the ALS #IceBucketChallenge is taking your Facebook news feed by storm. Your friends, colleagues, heck, even your grandmother might have been nominated to dump a bucket of cold water and ice on her head in the name of charity. Continue reading

Shortly after the outbreak of Ebola in Guinea, when it seemed like bad news was the only news, UNICEF’s office in Guinea started to receive reports of something that seemed almost impossible given the climate. Ebola victims were being released from the hospital, completely Continue reading

Turning Away Millions That Could Fund Mission

donald-sterling

So this post was culled from The Nonprofit Times. I found it interesting, pulling my minds in many different directions and wanted to see what you thought about it. Should charities refuse donations because the donor is a scumbag? Should they make it a huge debate? Are they helping a bad person cover up his evil actions by receiving donation? Are the beneficiaries and the cause way more important than this argument? Let me know what you think.
Written by Mark Hrywna and Patrick Sullivan . See article below;

It’s almost a time-honored tradition that some charities — and donors — don’t want to talk about. Someone makes a fortune on the misfortune of others and turns to charity to help shine up their public perception.

History provides plenty of examples of oil or railroad barons giving away their money to causes as a way to improve their images. The latest, and most public, example is Donald T. Sterling. The billionaire owner of the National Basketball Association’s (NBA) Los Angeles Clippers made his money in real estate and personal injury law. The same year he settled a multimillion-dollar housing discrimination suit he was honored by the local chapter of the NAACP. Continue reading

234 Girls Missing In Nigeria, Lend Your Voice

Protestors march to force action over the abducted Nigerian schoolgirls of Chibok on 30 April 2014

By now, we have all heard about the missing school girls in Nigeria. Well, if you haven’t, hmmmmmm!!!. I consider myself an advocate to the female specie. My organization The Pamela Erere Foundation (PEF) alongside the lady who started the #BRINGBACKOURGIRLS campaign on twitter, Ramaa Mosley have been tweeting endlessly about this matter to keep people talking. Here’s the deal-There have been several speculations about the girls’ whereabouts, the real story behind whether or not they are really kidnapped, people being on a wild goose chase, protests on returning the girls home, etc. Whatever category you belong. Here are some reasons why the Nigerian government needs to end this foolery and get the girls home and why you are doing yourself a favor in participating in getting them home.
Boko Haram officially rule Nigeria. This is no joke. If these girls are not returned, the Nigerian government would have successfully told the terrorist group that they are untouchable and can do whatever the heck they like. First the bombings in Nyanyan park and now these girls, amidst other bombings, killings and threats. And these people still walk around like there is no government? Continue reading

The Psychology Behind Gift Giving

gift

I am an advocate for GIVING that I have founded a charity to encourage it. I found this article online and decided to share it with you guys.
Gift exchange is a major part of celebrating life. From birthdays, to holidays and everything in between but did you know the whole act of gift-giving can offer psychological benefits? Giving a gift is a universal way to show interest, appreciation, and gratitude, as well as strengthen bonds with others, sources say.

“There is the whole act — determining what needs to be given and making sure it fits with the person,” says Devin A. Byrd, Ph.D., associate professor and chair of the Department of Behavioral Sciences at South University — Savannah. “There is an emotional lift when searching for the gift.”

Better to give than to receive, gift-giving is also an act of altruism — unselfish concern for the well-being of others. When we give without expecting anything in return, we are improving our psychological health. Continue reading
