03 Oct Celebrate The Month of May With Me!
The month of May is always a month of celebration and milestone for me. May opens up with the recognition that I am blessed to have three children who get an opportunity to hit their dad up for money so they can purchase Mother’s Day gifts for me. Shortly after Mother’s day, I celebrate my birthday on May 16th. This year I am celebrating the fact that I am 52 years old, in good health and ran I ran my first half-marathon just a few weeks ago!
Another significant point of celebration for May 2015, is the graduation of my oldest son, Johnathan better known as JohnEli, is graduating from high school. He is a fine young man, who received the Oprah Winfrey Scholarship along with other scholarships that will help his parents pay his tuition at Morehouse College where he will be attending in the Fall 2015.
However, of the all the celebrations in the month May, the one that is very dear to me is the celebration of women who are connected to my dream, My Sister’s Keeper Foundation for Women. For the past 8 years, I have dedicated my birthday to fundraising for MSK Foundation for the purposes of “Moving Women from Average to Excellence.” Each year that I get the opportunity to empower women through this influential leading organization is worth celebrating!
This year, I’m inviting to join the celebration by purchasing a ticket to attend the MSK Women of Excellence Awards and Scholarship Dinner that will be held on my birthday, May 16th www.eventbrite.com/e/msk-women-of-excellence-awards-scholarship-luncheon-tickets. You can also make a tax-deductible donation to MSK Foundation on our website at www.mskfoundation.org. There you will learn more about our organization and the work we do in empowering women and girls. Finally, you can spread the word about MSK Foundation and encourage women to connect with us through our life changing programming or by volunteering to serve with us in the future.
Thanks in advance for Celebrating the Month of May with Me!
