Rites of Passage: Tomi Oduwaiye

Hello my friends and family. I, Tomi Oduwaiye, am honored to be accepted into the Jack and Jill of America’s Rites of Passage program to nurture and develop young males of African descent.

Over the course of this six month program, i will be provided with a mentor, given many opportunities to interact with leaders within our community, and meet my fellow success seeking peers. While doing so, I will be taking large steps towards manhood and finding out what it truly means to be a man.

I, and nine other initiates, have accepted the challenge of raising $900 in order to better our program and donate to a charity of our group’s choice. I would very much appreciate any and all of your help. Please consider supporting my effort by making a generous donation in one of two ways:

1)DONATE any amount you can($25 minimum recommended)

2) Consider purchasing an advertisement - Each year a souvenir book is published with ads supporting the initiates. Follow the attached link to submit your ad, then DONATE on this GoFundMe site or follow instructions to send your check and ad file.

All donations will be managed by Jack and Jill of America, Inc. Minneapolis Chapter and distributed in accordance with it Rites of Passage polices.

Thank you all very much for supporting me.
