I have been putting on events for years. I always loved entertaining. I helped put on many events when I was working corporate America and also when I had my other businesses. I also feature a charity/nonprofit organization that offers a valuable and worthwhile service to our local community. I believe in supporting the local community.

I was asked and am honored to be on the board for PURPLE W.I.N.G.S., a 501(c)3 multicultural organization whose acronyms stands for Women Inspiring Nobel Girls Successfully. It is devoted solely to helping at-risk girls; particularly those facing the challenges of poverty, failing or dropping out of school, promiscuity, the sex-trade industry, violence and other negative traps. Purple W.I.N.G.S helps those facing challenges to ultimately use their personal power to reach their goals and dreams.

PURPLE W.I.N.G.S. was  founded in 2010 by Toshia Shaw.

Purple Wings is a volunteered-based organization. All mentors/volunteers are background checked, and thoroughly screed prior to working with the girls. Our vision is a community in which girls realize their potential to fulfill their dreams and achieve stability despite their circumstances.

Girls are the fastest growing segment of the juvenile justice system with minority females disproportionately represented among delinquent girls; two-thirds are girls of color. The majority have been subjected to some form of emotional, physical and/or sexual abuse.” *September 2009 study “Report on High Risk Girls and Gender-Specific Programming*

So, as a mother, as a board member, and as someone in this community who cares about our community youth, I am reaching out to let people know some things we need:

  • Computers, mostly the tower/hard drives as we have some monitors. Toureau University has volunteered to tutor the girls
  • School and Office supplies, notebooks.
  • Personal Hygiene Items
  • Volunteers to be mentors and also teachers who teach on topics such as self esteem, job hunting, parenting, etc.
  • Snacks and bottle water. 
  • Bus money 
  • And, of course cash donations as there is the upkeep of the building , such as rent, utilities, maintenance, etc. 

If you are inspired to help, please contact me. I will pick up items. Las Vegas area only.
