Impact: Lupus Affects All Of Us

This year, I really wanted to do more and give back. While I have many opportunities to volunteer at different charities through my school, I wanted to join a cause close to my heart. Some of you may know that my mother has Lupus. While she's doing great, I want to be able to help the Lupus Foundation find a cure for the disease. 

A few months ago, I saw someone tweet that they were planning a Lupus charity event and I jumped at the opportunity! Kennethia Hutchins has been working hard on planning the Impact Spoken Word Showcase to raise money for Lupus research. Here's how you can help:

1. Have a piece you want to spit? Sign up to be a performer at the Spoken Word showcase held on April 26. 

2. Have a small business or know a business owner? Contact to get information on how you can be a sponsor. 

3. Mark your calendars! Come out to the showcase on April 26 to enjoy a night of spoken word while learning more about the effects of Lupus in the African American community. 

4. Donate! Every little bit helps to find a cure for Lupus. You will have the opportunity to donate on the night of the event, but can start now by donating on my team's page for the Lupus Walk. 

5. Still want to help? Join my team for the Lupus Walk on April 27! Simply click the 'Join My Team' link and register. My goal is to raise $3,000!

Be sure to like the Impact Facebook page to keep up to date on the event! Have any questions, email Join my team, too :)
