Motto: “I’m WAWA TOUGH” 
 
BACKGROUND: 

The WAWA initiative is an entertainment-based community project that provides aid to individuals in need of assistance through the hosting of donation driven diversified charity events. We are here to create a philanthropic-based entertainment platform for likeminded passionate entertainers, who in their mission to provide good music, have refused to allow uncertainty, setbacks or crisis to reduce their charge in life as musical healers . The WAWA initiative simultaneously translates that same energy into acts of kindness for people in our small knit communities that are dealing with more tangible issues,  whose resilience to overcome those obstacles, is a demonstration of strength that is often overlooked. 

The WAWA initiative was created to acknowledge the toughness, resilence, perserverance and passion that permeates within members of our tight knit communities who have chosen to exercise great empathy and cohesiveness in order to maintain the most valuable commodity we all have in common-the integrity of our lives.

The Word "WAWA" itself means toughness, and it takes a strong mind and a willing heart to "hold it all together". Hence why I have coined the phrase, "I'm WAWA Tough" to be used as a mantra for self-reflection and a reminder to our volunteers and supporters that it is their resilience that makes our aid efforts succeed.

With that said, if there is only one thing that is certain during these very confusing times-the human spirit is tougher than any dis-ease.

Our focus this year is on essential workers in all fields of labor who are overworked and exhausted from the low percentage of manpower, but higher demands of time spent at work.  "Essential workers" includes healthcare clinicians, transportation/delivery staff, auxillary cleaning employees, sanitation workers, teachers, etc.  Due to the COVID19 outbreak that has crippled the social and financial infrastructures of the world, adequate rest and recuperation may not be an option for these individuals.

We recognize their empathy, commitment and "WAWA Tough-ness" and we want to give them the rest and rejuvenation that their employers cannot provide due to business demands. Needless to say; Empathy in these times is an exhausting trait and should be rewarded not penalized. 
          --So we will pay them to stay home.--
And we need YOUR Help! 
 

 
24-HOUR LIVE-A-THON LIVESTREAM EVENT

This is our first year and we have chosen to launch the "Make 2, Take 2 Project" by providing a 24-hour live-a-thon event in the form of a remote online entertainment broadcast. Due to social distance restrictions, 12 diversely creative and trendsetting female entertainers in their seperate and international locations, will volunteer 2 hours of their time to help raise donations of $4,000 that will be able to provide 2 days of paid-time-off to nominees that these women have empathetic hand selected themselves.

WAWA Females are skilled professionals that are DJ’s, radio personalities, media specialists, marketers, bloggers, promoters and many more titles of the like. The WAWA initiative is geared to employing these women that are creative, skillful and empathetic to the climate of change that is happening in the world.
