Dinner For First Responders & Nurses

Endured we did the year of 2020, however our first responders and nurses endured the most. What would have been a normal year at work for them was far beyond the scope of what anyone could have imagined.
With that being said, it has always been a dream of mine to pay it forward and thank those who do so much for us. For this reason, like I have in the past I am raising money to organize a dinner for first responders. This time I am attempting to benefit the entire Columbia Police & Fire Departments, the entire MU-Police Department, The entire Mizzou EMS and Hopefully a good portion of Nurses that work at MU Health Care. To say "thank you for all of your service last year and in the future!"

How the "Dinner" will work is with gift cards this year. More specifically  I have chosen five restaurants to buy gift cards from with the Money that is raised here. Those gift cards will be delivered to the Fire Houses, Police Stations, and at MU Health Care.

Also here are a few more reasons that donating to this cause will be of benefit:

1.   To bridge a gap between my fellow African Americans and Law enforcement.  

2.   To Give an Economic Stimulus to small Business

3.   Promote feelings of joy and unity among the people of Columbia.

4.   To Say Thank you to First Responders + Nurses for all they do.

5.   To do my part in a national effort to bring Americans together in a time of Hardship & Uncertainties.

So please join me in raising this money so they too can feel the love of all they served come round! If this is a success it would be a dream come true!
