#Write2Rescue | Using Creativity To Raise Funds & The Spirits of Those Impacted By Hurricanes Harvey & Irma

"My name is Tyra McKinzie (@2ndchild7writes) and as I sat on the edge of my sofa in Virginia and watched all the devastation of Hurricane Harvey in Houston, my heart sank.  All I could do is think about Hurricane Katrina all over again. So many people lost everything that day. Some even lost their lives. Now here we are, almost twelve years later to the day, facing a very similar situation.  Then to hear that another potentially deadly hurricane was soon to follow, I couldn’t go about my daily routine as if it didn’t affect me. I grew extremely concerned and wanted to help. I logged onto social media and found that I wasn’t alone. One of the first posts I saw was that of my friend Christoph Jenkins of The Poet Life. Christoph, being who he is, had already begun working on a project to help raise money that would go directly to misplaced families.  I reached out to him about doing a joint venture where we could combine poetry, rap, and song to help raise money and to also raise the spirits of the many affected by these unfortunate circumstances. We realize that it’s going to take quite some to recover from this type of devastation and lost, but together we can rebuild. We are not looking to personally make a penny from this venture. All monies raised from this venture will go directly to families in need. This is where you come. We are looking for a few amazing singers with powerful voices, also rappers, and poets who are willing to lend their time, talents and gifts to this very worthy project. If you or someone you know is interested please email me at secondchild7@gmail.com or contact Christoph Jenkins at ThePoetLifeMovement@gmail.com. Serious Inquiries Only!!
