This is Ceylon. She heads up pioneering work at @footballbeyondborders, promoting female participation in both their programmes and in football. Ceylon recently celebrated her 1st year anniversary at the charity and with the World Cup and plenty of other projects on the go, it's been a busy one! ⚽️ As Ceylon put it...“Everyone has a purpose in life … a unique gift or special talent to give to others. And when we blend this unique talent with service to others, we experience the ecstasy and exultation of our own spirit, which is the ultimate goal of all goals.” 🙌
This trailblazer of a Queen was born on March 25th, 1957 she has achieved so much and has still managed to start a foundation that promotes breast cancer awareness, early detection and treatment, her network @mybeautifulmindnetwork talks about mental health, self awareness, depression and many more issues affecting all kinds of people.
We love and celebrate you @bettyirabor
Not sure if anyone heard, but the owner of HEB, Charles Butt, just donated $150 million to Texas Public schools. This man is the epitome of philanthropy. Also, Whitestone Market looking much better these days. #philanthropy #texas #school #heb

YUVA awarded all the students of the Jean Marie Frank Richard State Secondary School, La Tour Koenig who have successfully completed YUVA Academy's Moral, Civic and Sex Education programme.
The Moral, Civic and Sex Education is an essential element of whole-person education, which aims at fostering teenagers’ positive values and attitudes through the learning and teaching of various key learning areas/subjects and the provision of relevant learning experiences. On this ground, it is to develop teenagers’ ability to identify the values embedded, analyse objectively and make a reasonable judgement in different issues they may encounter at different developmental stages so that they could take proper action to deal with the challenges in their future life.
Your optimism, belief in true love, and independence will get you far in life.

Since our company’s inception we have made it our priority to always give back. This past year we have been honored to be part of such wonderful organizations! One example of this is our time spent with @sgvhabitat . As a part of their external committee, we are committed to helping them capture special moments at their events!
Congratulations to our #GIG fellows who have had an incredible summer learning all about philanthropy & creating change in their communities. We're grateful for the experience they were able to have in our offices & with grantee partners as they ignite #grantmaking !
A very high percentage of fraternities and sororities lose their corporate and tax-exempt status because they fail to file with the IRS. 😳

No need to pray for the Amazon. WE'VE ALREADY BEEN GIVING ALL THAT IS NEEDED TO BE WARRIORS OF LOVE AND PROTECTORS OF OUR MOTHER EARTH....but instead of conscious and rightful action, we ignorantly pray for something we already have. So instead: Pray for the insight to realize how your daily actions affect the ecosystem. Pray for the courage and strength to make changes in your life to minimize the impact to our mother nature. Pray for the will to research and no longer support companies which disrespect our earth. Pray to stand up en masse and demand that governments begin to truly act for the the benefit of all humans by acting first to protect the planet. 📷 by Yuri Kozyrev
One of the first-ever buildings owned by The Salvation Army in the city of Detroit. It was a comforting place for so many back then, just as the 13 corps community centers in metro Detroit are now. #FlashbackFriday

According to the National Institute for Space Research, areas of Amazon rainforest measuring more than 1.5 professional soccer fields are destroyed every minute of every day in a historic season of fires – an 80% increase from 2018. This surge in destruction is thought to be primarily caused by farmers clearing their land. The Amazon, often referred to as “the planet’s lungs,” produces 20% of the oxygen in the Earth’s atmosphere and is called home by dozens of indigenous tribes. As Amazon stores carbon, it is thought to slow global warming, but if we continue to lose this mammoth resource, scientists say a dieback loop could be triggered where the forest could start to dry out and burn on its own until its ultimate elimination. As solution seekers and philanthropists, we feel a sense of duty to provide meaningful resources to those who wish to help: donate, contact elected officials, and even change consumption patterns that are inextricably linked to the demands made on the rainforests of our world. #amazonfire (for more info see link in bio) #planetearth#carbon#humanity#humanrace#philanthropy

Meet Myleanna, a 9-year-old active runner and dancer, who just received a custom prosthetic running blade! Thanks to one of our Donors and @astepaheadprosthetics, now Myleanna can comfortably get back to her athletic lifestyle and enjoy all the activities she loves! •
Following the #FacebookLIVE from yesterday, we're sharing with you our infographic, "Are We Facing a Fundraiser Exodus?" If we don't do something about the organizational structure with the fundraising team, we may be sorry when our fundraisers wave the white flag and walk out! We've got to learn to prioritize the well-being of our fundraisers who work so hard to find those crucial donations.
Stay tuned for my blog tomorrow to learn even more about this crisis!
Did you know that 51% of fundraisers say they will leave their current nonprofit within 2 years? The revolving door of fundraisers in organizations is an issue we can no longer ignore. It's crucial that we start to address the organizations' responsibilities for creating a workplace that is understanding of the stress caused by the demands we often put on some of our most important team members.
Tomorrow on #facebooklive , Kathryn Gamble and I will be discussing some of the shocking statistics a new study found about the realities of the fundraiser role, and what we can do to address them.
You want to buy cars and houses and castles, all of that's on you and how America has systematized your mind to be into materialism. The music industry I am in has nothing to do with that. I'm glad that anybody making money has picked themselves up - I just want them to give some of it back to the community #philanthropy#mentalhealthawareness

I’ve been accused of it many times... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Hanging out with other influencers because “its good for your brand”
Well here’s a funny story for you...
This is my best friend @angeagame ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
She’s a really successful business owner with a huge loyal community and following.
We met because of a hate thread... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And became real friends.
We got trolled online by people who didn’t even know us...
And we had no clue who each other was.
But when she saw me on the hate thread - she sent her assistant to look me up.
Well that hate thread really started something...
Instead of feeling sorry for ourselves for being hated on so much...
We decided to create something awesome together instead.
In the past 3 years we’ve:
🌟 Helped thousands of entrepreneurs transform their mindsets & businesses through my online coaching programs ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🎙 Spoken on stage together in Hollywood to empower other business owners at earlier stages of their journeys ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🐶 Donated thousands of dollars to charities to help doggies & to the UN ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🦁 Been to Necker Island and on Safari with Sir Richard Branson to help spearhead a new charity project for Virgin Unite ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
📚 Ange introduced me on stage at my book launch in the UK ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🐢 I babysat for her 7 tortoises (it took me a whole week to realize it was a prank)
👨👩👧👦 She’s made me part of her family and opened up her homes to me too ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🚗 And she always makes a point to pick me up and drop me off to the airport because she knows I was raped in a taxi on the way to the airport in Spain years ago and wants me to feel safe...
The moral of the story!?
Good things come from those who hate! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And for those of you that think our friendships are fake!? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’d challenge you to go find a better one to compare 😝
Grateful for the bullying that brought us together! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
(This is us on a speedboat leaving Necker Island after having raised hundreds of thousands of thousands of dollars for Virgin Unite - CHEERS!🥂
