Has it been a smooth road?
Whenever you have a purpose, there will always be challenges that you will have to face to get you to next level. For instance, we both have been through divorces, and rejections, Which led to our first book called “There’s Power In Your I Am”. We had to learn that we go through things in order to help the next person. You can’t help anyone with a situation unless you’ve been through it.
In spite of our heartaches and pain, God has blessed us tremendously, to provide resources to others who are in need, whether that’s food, clothes, monetary gifts, or just showing awareness to things happening in the world, by bringing people together to unite.
We’d love to hear more about your organization.

Let’s touch on your thoughts about our city – what do you like the most and least?
We do not live in LA, but we can tell you what we like best about Chicago. There are a lot of resources that allow us to implement the gift of giving.
