Have fun this weekend!

For Black History Month I'm recommending HYPE Freedom Schools as an org to support because they've got a 20 year track record of great work. More below or click here to donate

Giving Spotlight:
HYPE Freedom Schools

HYPE works with churches and schools to implement the Freedom Schools curriculum developed by the Children’s Defense Fund. They provide summer enrichment that helps children fall in love with reading, increases their self-esteem, and generates more positive attitudes toward learning. Donate today!
I'm donating to HYPE because the mornings I spent reading, singing, and chatting with these young people were the highlights of my summer. I'm putting my money toward continuing the Freedom Schools legacy of youth development in Houston. Let me know if you're able to support or have questions!
