Don't Hit. This the name for the fundraiser I am organizing for Osborne House Inc
the same night (August 29) Chris Brown is scheduled to appear in
concert in Winnipeg. So many people have come forward to tell me their
heart-wrenching stories and to offer help (thank you Academy Lanes
). You and me are going to do this together. Because "Loving Hands Don't Hit." Stay tuned for more details. XO â™¥
Let's put our $$ and support where it's really needed, dear friends--Osborne House.
