Our organization helped coordinate a BIG Gift Giveaway between the Tyler Perry Foundation and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta to Brighten the lives of pediatric transplant patients during the holiday season. We had a blast delivering gifts to patients on the transplant floor. We would like to thank the Tyler Perry Foundation for supporting our efforts!

We recently partnered with Marion Franklin High School in Columbus, OH to host an exclusive showing of our Inspirational Stage Play titled “Y-NOTTYOU”. Nearly 900 people came out for several nights of
LAUGHTER, EXCITEMENT, and INSPIRATION. We would like to thank the producer Ms. Davina Ware for all of her hard work and dedication putting this awesome play together.

Play synopsis: “YNOTTYOU” is a play of family, friends, and knowledge. This inspirational production is about a young male named Jody who aspires to play football for a Division I College.  As a senior, Jody is faced with a lot of difficult challenges that impact his life such as peer pressure, low test scores, and unwanted health issues that will change his life forever.
