March Of Dimes – Drive Through Parade

March Of Dimes – Drive Through Parade

April 30th i had the pleasure of participating in the March Of Dimes – SC drive through parade.

March of Dimes is a United States nonprofit organization that works to improve the health of mothers and babies. “We believe that every baby deserves the best possible start. Unfortunately, not all babies get one. We are changing that.”

During the drive through we were given a scavenger hunt that taught us a bit more about March of Dimes and why is so important for their initiative to be alive.

A premature baby may look tiny and fragile to touch but don’t underestimate the courage, strength, and determination of a baby born too soon.

I stand with all moms and parents who are taking action to help provide better care, awareness and resiliency to child birth πŸ€°πŸΎπŸ’–

Black History Month

Black History Month

Black History Month is an annual celebration of achievements by African Americans and a time for recognizing their central role in U.S. history.

In 1915 after the 13th amendment abolished slavery in the U.S Harvard-trained historian Carter G. Woodson and minister Jesse E. Moorland founded the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History (ASNLH), an organization dedicated to researching and promoting achievements by Black Americans and other peoples of African descent.

As we are approaching the end of what society considers ‘Black History Month” – black history should always be celebrated and recognized all 12 months of the year.

It’s important to recognize, appreciate and show gratitude to those who came before us and the sacrifices made.

Below are some links to different articles you can read to further the discussion of black history and what it really means. – I encourage you to do your own research too.

Human Rights Day βœŠπŸΎβ£

December 10th is #HumansRightDay ✊🏾⁣
⁣
As we all know in 2020 we have seen a lot of changes, both on a global scale and in our personal lives. It seems that this year has forced us to confront the many ways our society has fallen short in its ability to take care of everyone, especially the members of its most vulnerable sectors. ⁣
⁣
This human rights day let us acknowledge these struggles and speak up for them where we can.✊🏾 ⁣


⁣
May we continue this advocacy, because we all deserve human rights. Let’s not just talk to people inside our own bubble about equality, let’s reach outside.✊🏾⁣

Reading With Royalty

Reading With Royalty

So honored i was able to read for @ReadingWithRoyalty_ this past weekend.

Reading With Royalty is a outlet where different pageant queens can read to children in hospitals virtually!

I was able to read the book, ‘The Class Play’ by Robert Newell. I chose this book because the moral of this story was to show children that they should be grateful for the things they have and are chosen for.

Is the grass really greener on the other side? Sometimes exactly where you are is where you need to be.

Education is so important and I’m happy i can still promote literacy during COVID-19.

Thanks for listening .
