BENEFITING: Empowering People With Integrity & Compassion
Being a parent, most people realize that it can be a blessing and a curse. A blessing, because they are gift from God and the role of parent forces you to become a better person for your cildren to model. A curse, because sometimes you feel as though you could have done more to protect them from the hurt and pain that they endure, when making poor decisions. As a single parent, there were many circumstances that disrupted the flow of life for me and my children.
My non-profit (EPIC, Inc.) was created because my two children are my blessing and my curse. My goal with this campaign is to not only win, but to raise enough money to be effective in the communities that I serve. I want to prevent teen males from being a statistic, reduce the recidivism rate and implement/enforce policies within the juvenile system. I also want to continue to assist teen and young adult females from perpetuating the cycle of poverty, one generation at a time.
I want to thank each and everyone of you for supporting this cause.
