Last weekend the HOPE team, led by Lance Triggs and Jena Roscoe, came together with volunteers from the local H & R Block offices in Houston to provide emergency economic disaster assistance support to Katrina victims invited to attend the Essence Music Festival in Houston, Texas.
More than 80,000 inviduals purchased tickets and attended the Essence Music Festival, held annually by Essence Magazine. The Essence Cares seminars which I participated in and spoke at were provided free of charge to all in attendance. A great way of "giving back." Kudos to my friend and leader Susan Taylor of Essence. You see, you can "do well and do good too."
Onward, with HOPE
