So i got prepared for MLK day's Hosea Feed the Homeless to do media BUT...

Tireless workers
A sponser with heart

I was pretty excited ya know. I had yet to be part of any of the Hosea Feed the Homeless events in Atlanta since i'd been a resident for several years. But i'd always wanted to. I did. I would call and contact but it just didn't seem to pan out anytime. So this year as poppa Martin Luther King's birthday rolled around i got a call from the wonderful Leighala Jiminez (PR/artist management) to do media coverage of the event that takes place yearly on Turner Field. I thought at first very selfishly...hmmm i want to sleep. Just being honest. Great thing is that good prevailed over evil (selfish) and i became enthused about participating in my first HFH event.

So on Monday i show up to the event right, i am pumped. I got to the media table and guess what? Oh press coverage has ended early. GASP, WHAT?! So i'm there, i drove, i've got camera and recorder in hand. What's a girl to do? Well i love lemons and lemonade so i made the best of it and decided to stay and see what else could be done. I got to serve! YIPPIE! I think maybe at first they were like, wait you're media do you really wanna? But to be honest i much more wanted to be with the people (at this event) in need then the media who can at times be pushy and shovey.

I'm not here to pat myself on the back, PLLEEEEEEEEASE, i have a long way to go in my servitude. I am nowhere near Jesus' example which is the ultimate so i will forever keep my mouth on mute on my deeds or how nice they were, seriously. However i wanted to write this to share because it was a fabulous experience. I saw so many men and women, families, yes children who just wanted something to eat. I fret about my car, and shopping for a new place to live, gotta have that guess shirt, and a super meals at a funky restaurants. But the crowd at Turner were just happy to get a little turkey (extra gravy please!) and VERY grateful! If you didn't know Hosea puts on several annual events for the homeless during big holidays. Not only do the people in attendance get to eat but they also are provided with showers, hair cuts/perms, medical attention, back massages (YES yall!), AND Marta cards? How's that! Some even took food with them. Gosh! I was just happy to be there and to see everyone smiling. It made my day even if for one day i knew they would be better.

I thank them for their generosity. Sometimes we get so used to our sponsors that we barely blink as they continue to give (no matter the financial climate) but i want to let them know that we notice and i'm grateful on the behalf of those that benefited. Also to the volunteers...yall did it! I spoke to a lady who was there helping from 9 am till after 4 pm, on her feet, working quickly and taking loud orders the whole time. Those are the hearts that move this city. A black president can't do it all, but a city can, a nation can. I pray in these coming months we continue to work together and take responsibility for each other. We can make the world a better place, if even in your community alone.

Thanks to PR & media powerhouse A.B.C Associates Entertainment. Dee Dee i'm so glad we finally got to meet. And Crystal B took great care of me. Yall are such a family and i love that! I met great people AND had fun.

Take care,

Robert Townsend rolls out the purple carpet for, "Diary of a Single Mom"

"Hollywood Shuffle"
"Meteor Man"
"Carmen" (2002)
"The Parenthood"
And who can forget "Five Heartbeats"? "Night like this....I...wish..." (drunken Eddie...)

Those are all projects that Actor/Director/Producer Robert Townsend has been involved in. Well now he's taking his Hollywood hat and using it to better one of the most influential group of people in our midst; the single moms. Robert allows viewers to take a closer look at these sometimes unsung hero's lives, struggles and victories in his near webisode formatted series.

Mini interview with Robert Townsend about his new series
Mini interview with B5 band member Dustin about the direction of their new album after Bad Boy drop

Yes the internet. "Diary of a Single Mom" is a web tv show with all the fixing of normal tv but available at any time on the web.

I went to New Birth Missionary Baptist Church (Bishop Eddie Long) last night not knowing what the expect and came out of there excited about Monica Calhoun's incredible acting (GREAT JOB!) and the future of web tv! The 12 (so you can watch it even on a work break) minute per episode series launches on January 29th on www.Pic.TV. PIC founded by Ray Ramsey, allows webshows to air on their network as would a regular tv show. Come on now technology! Anyway thus far Townsend and crew have amassed 8 episodes, the 1st 4 you will be able to see on the date above. So check it out. Single mom or not you will LEARN and be inspired (unless you are "Heartless" as Kanye vocodes)!

Thanks to Leighala Jiminez (PR) for the information as well as Shed Jackson at Franklin Media Group
