May 5, 2017
Last week, when we held our #WeHearYou Sale, we could have never predicted the overwhelming outpouring of support.
We at tgin feel it is only right that we take this opportunity to pay it forward as a result of customer support. Which is why we are donating $10,000 from the proceeds of this sale to charity. The following four organizations which directly impact and service our community will be the recipient of these funds:
Metropolitan Breast Cancer Task Force
The Metropolitan Chicago Breast Cancer Task Force is a not-for-profit organization that fights against breast cancer inequalities in Metropolitan Chicago. The Task Force advocates to increase funding to state programs that make it possible for uninsured women to receive mammograms, educates the public on breast cancer awareness, works with legislative officials to improve the quality of healthcare facilities and much more.
The Dovetails mission is simple, give young African American fathers the skills and support they need to be better fathers for their children and better men in their communities. The objective of Dovetails is to assist these young fathers with spending quality time with their children, teaching them the skills they need to obtain employment and ensure they are receiving quality education.
The Chicago Urban League believes that by uplifting the African American community they make a better Chicago. The Urban League’s mission is to work for economic, educational and social progress for African Americans and to promote strong, sustainable communities through advocacy, collaboration and innovation.
The Pediatric Aids Chicago Prevention Initiative is a not-for-profit organization that works to end the transmission of HIV/AIDS from mother to child. The PACPI organization also brings together public and private institutions and community-based organizations together to achieve the ultimate goal, eliminating pediatric AIDS in Illinois.
As the CEO of Thank God It’s Natural, and a former corporate attorney, I view it as my responsibility to be your advocate not only in the hair care aisle, but in the community. As we continue to grow as a company, it is my promise to you that we will leverage our success to be a voice on issues related to workforce development, health disparities, and minority entrepreneurship, and continue to invest in those communities that need it most.
Thank you again for your support and loyalty through the years.
