Help Black Women go to March on Washington

50478380_1598477748326175_r.jpegHey y’all!  I am Grace Gunn, my sister is  Majesty Gunn, and my God-sister is Trinity Anderson.  Trinity & myself are young Black Women that have a passion for investing our time and efforts into our community and being apart of supporting others and organizing.  Majesty has the greatest heart for wholelistic health and is always encouraging others and hopes to take what she learns about being a health person physically and bringing it back to the black community to help implement habits that will expand the wellness of people’s live physically, mentally, and spiritually! Trinity attends Northern Illinois Univeristy while Majesty & I attend Southern Illinois University. This being said we would love if you all could help fund a 2 1/2 day trip to the march on washington for the 57th anniversary of the march in 1963.  We are all college students and want to be able to go to the March but can not do it with just our own pockets.  We will be going with a dear mentor of ours, Shoneice Reynolds.  She is one of the most authentic examples of what a leader is.  She has taught Trinity & I so much over the years that we’ve known her.  She serves and pours into every child that she encounters however she can.  She looks out for people that don’t even know that she is looking out; she is a selfless woman who we would love to be able to join us to experience this event in D.C.  We have looked through multiple different options of travel and stay and are most comfortable with these accommodations.  Here’s a breakdown of the costs!
