My life's mission is dedicated to rebuilding communities through the ownership mentality.

I'm *often* asked: how can I support your work or the causes that you believe in?

Here's a story of a man in Baltimore who is doing the work along with a link to help him reach a goal.
Darren is a leader, father, and husband who was called to provide an environment for at-risk Black boys to have access to male mentorship and support.
That calling is known as I AM MENtality.

One thing you must know: If I support a cause, I must know where the money is going. No exceptions.

Darren's organization is super solid.
We've done an event series together for Black boys. It's powerful work he was called to do.
We partnered on a mentoring experience called Brunch for Brothers.

We bring in the young Men, serve them a 5 star breakfast prepared by a Black Chef and surround them with advice and guidance from Black Elders from the community.

Most of the first time elders cry everytime
If a cause is marketed to be *for* my community but their Board of Directors are not *from* my community, then their intent should be examined.

Darren's work is tangible. I've dropped off coffee for volunteers. I can call him anytime. That's important to me.
Instead of asking Minnesota Defense Fund where the money went, 🤔

I support the action of investing in leaders who build their communities *as a way of life*.
