Well of Hope: Blessed to be a Blessing ….(Contest opportunity!)

This year marks the 6th annual Blessed to be a blessing Thanksgiving dinner. Which is simply amazing! Six year ago a young woman Chia Morgan had a vision to do something great to give back to our community after the economy fell when General Motors was uprooted from Flint, Mi. Two days before Thanksgiving day residents of Flint are able to dine in a family filled environment  while enjoying live music from one of Flints very own DJ’s as well hear words from an inspirational speaker.

Every year the turn out for this event brings tears to Chia’s eyes. This year she is expecting tremendous growth and more tears of joy ! Due to the previous head chef relocating, Well of Hope would like to introduce and  welcome Chef Dion Pollard on board to help serve the community at this years Blessed to be a Blessing event..

Kim Harrison (UPDATED)

Often I am asked to do things for people in the name of their dream. And sometimes I oblige, most time I oblige. But just recently I sat down and spoke with a woman in which I’ve known for quite sometime. Mrs. Kim Harrison, she asked for my help just as anyone else with a dream or a goal. However her dream and goal is a tad different …

Mrs. Kim Harrison is a 44 year old woman born and raised in Flint, Mi… She is married to Steve Harrison and together they have to children, Stephan and Shaquita…. Stephan (the oldest son) is serving our country as an active member of the U.S. Navy, while Shaquita (The younger daughter) is a student at U of M Flint. Kim had to Retire early from General Motors due to her Illness, she is currently battling Polycystic Kidney and Liver disease.

Due to the complications related to her condition her husband has had to cut back on hours at work resulting in lost wages. As a result of her treatment she has had both of her kidneys removed and must have dialysis daily in order to survive. Her diagnosis requires that she have a double transplant (Kidney&Liver) which makes her condition very serious and means her donor must have passed away.

There’s a lot of travel involved in her situation due to the way the donor recipient system works. Kim May in fact have to travel to one of the several states where she is registered to receive a transplant at a moments notice. As a result she must have the necessary funds available to cover the travel expenses she incurs. These expense include but aren’t limited to : Lodging, Meals, airline tickets etc…

Any financial donation you can make, no matter how small. Is greatly appreciated by Kim and her family.

Please register as an Organ Donor with the Secretary of State and encourage your friends and family to do so also, there’s a GREAT need for Organs in the state of Michigan as well as across the country. Those who receive (the gift of life) these organs greatly appreciate your kind acts!

In the bible the book of John 15:13 NIV says….
[13] Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.
The same can be said of those who donate organs….

Please send any monetary donations to:

Mrs. Kim Harrison
P.O. Box 320935
Flint, Mi 48532

Or

Also stay tuned for more ways to contribute to this worthy cause.
If you or anyone you know is having an event where donations can be collected please contact myself at ThatsMyJAM90@gmail.com or call me at 810.643.1795 …

Black~ish

This week was the week of great TV…

A new show Black~ish premiered Wednesday night on ABC.. Naturally I missed it doing my hair. However I got the chance to watch it Friday evening once I got relaxed after work.

I must say it’s great to see Joan (Tracy Ellis Ross) back on TV. But the show as a whole was good…

I think it will give other races a chance to see how it is to be a successful African American who came from a rough background. I even think that it is race friendly, it will allow other races to tune in and see how we feel when certain situations occur. It won’t speak for everyone but it will set the tone differently then not so reality TV has over the years.. No shade to reality TV I gets my fix sometimes too.. Shows like this gives us a chance to see a successful African American family and it gives hope which is always good.. I look forward to this season of Black~ish

Spotlight radio interviewed me today

Monday 9.8.14 I was on my lunch break and I received a phone call… From a young man from Spotlight Radio.. Sunny Freeman

Sunny was calling to talk to me about my website and also to offer me the grand opportunity to be featured on his live podcast. And I accepted. It was such an honor to be noticed for what I love to do.

So today at 10:30 it all happened here: http://www.spreaker.com/user/spotlightradio/morning-buzz-09-10-14?autoplay=1

I was very nervous during the interview. Though nobody on this earth knows me better thn I do, I was still shaking like a strippa on the other end of the phone while Sunny asked me questions….

My interview starts right after the “Hottest in the city” track which is pretty hot if I do say so myself…

I do owe Roneeka Simone Brown an apology for not remembering her first name when talking about the play this Saturday! I always see her name I’d just heard someone call her R. Simone Brown.. I apologize..

Thank you goes to Sunny Freeman and spotlight radio for the opportunity

You should wanna taste this… #FlavorMeDope

All of my friends are blessed with amazing talents and gifts. But one of them is blessed and highly flavored!

My friend Symphani McNeal has been my friends for about 7years now and we’ve always been expressive with one another about our dreams and future plans. While mine probably had a lot to do with love and relationships.. Hers had more to do with her love for music and cooking.. Symphani and I always related well when it came to music, she’d put me on some dope music and I in return would do the same for her.. But cooking has been hers all by herself. I can cook but Symphani is all into it presentation of meals and all..

About a year or so ago we sat at Barnes and Nobles and discussed our dreams and how we want our futures to play out in great detail.. And at this present moment I’m proud to say that she has made a grand step in the correct direction…

Her amazing cupcakes are now in a restaurant right here in Flint, Mi…
