PLEASE help Djeneba Sako
She is devastated, overwhelmed, hurt and on her own...
Djeneba has brought joy, healing, knowledge and happiness to EVERYONE that she has met, her infectious smile, coupled with that AMAZING ability to dance with EVERY part of her body, spirit and SOUL has set her apart and pushed her to the top of the African Dance Circuit in the U.S.
Nevertheless, she has NO family here, she only has US, her students, her friends, her sisters and brothers...
Can you PLEASE search your heart and donate SOMETHING to help her get back on her feet and to let her know that we REALLY love her, both on and off the dance floor, across space and time....this is a time where she needs us, can you HELP?
If you need a number to start, just consider what you pay for a conference....we spend hundreds to experience a weekend of joy, how much can we donate to encourage and help someone who has nothing BUT us?
Just to throw out a number, I'll suggest at the LEAST the cost of a class, $15....there's no max, and even the minimum is a suggestion...whatever you give, however you give...it is NEEDED and appreciated!!! THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION AND COMPASSION!!! Please write a word of encouragement as well, she will see each one...
A WORD ABOUT MYSELF, this page was created by Sista Adama Jewel, M.Ed. I have been a member of the African Dance community for over 23 years, since I began at the tender age of 18, in 1990. I have spent my entire adult life learning and sharing the cultural traditions of my ancestors and using them to impact the lives of at-risk youth and students throughout the world.
I am also the Founder/Director of African Soul International, which is now based in Los Angeles, CA. We will be hosting a conference, October 11-13, and Djeneba is one of our featured artists.
EVERY SINGLE PENNY OF THIS CAMPAIGN IS BEING DEPOSITED INTO DJENEBA'S PERSONAL ACCOUNT!!! THE ONLY MONEY THAT WILL NOT IS THE MONEY THAT WEPAY AND GOFUNDME.COM ARE TAKING OUT FOR ADMINISTRATIVE COSTS....THIS IS A VOLUNTEER EFFORT BY ADAMA JEWEL. PLEASE FORWARD ANY QUESTIONS, COMMENTS OR CONCERNS DIRECTLY.
But real talk, the need is GREAT!! Its NOT too late to still sow a seed!!! IF you've EVER taken a class from Djeneba, or any other artist, can you please donate the cost of a class to help her get her life back?
Every single thing that we rely on everyday, from undergarments to coffee makers, is what she now needs!!! I am positive that she STILL needs more, so
I'm going to continue this campaign, as there are still people who don't even know yet..please continue to share, PRAY and dig DEEP!!!
Caryn Wagner, Tawny Vernau, Jacqueline Miller, Larry Swanson, Ximena Dussan, Laurie & Abdoulaye Sylla, Emily Abernathy, April & Alex Eschenbaum, Zyck and Solo, Max Inchaurregui, Gavin Green, Nick Andrea, Heather Peluso, Jan Salerno, Jennie Lay, Ellen Cirona, and Katie James!!!
Can we close this out with $2,500 tonight? I hope so family!!! Thank you!!!
