May is Foster Care Awareness month and the Oprah Winfrey Foundation is joining forces with me and the She Ready Foundation to raise awareness and money to help foster youth. For every dollar you give, Oprah will match up to $75,000 and I’m doing the same. Call it a 2 for 1.
With the funds, we will love up on foster children with our educational and emotional support programs including one-to-one, small group tutoring & case management for 25 high schoolers—five days a week. We have paid internships for 16 transitioning foster youth; life skills & professional development workshops; mental health counseling; luggage distribution; and our newest program -- a Virtual Book Club and Reading Hour, where our She Ready Fellows will receive She Ready Love Libraries. I’m curating a special set of books that I use to encourage, excel and elevate my mind, body and spirit. These books will help take our young people to their next level. Whatever you give counts -- so let’s do this. You ready? She Ready!
