everybody loves Mary J. Blige. her voice is unquestionably powerful!  the raw images her lyrics portray have helped millions get through bad and good times.   while i admire her talent; i’ve recently become amazed by her heart.

 

i’ve been working with Ms. Blige through her foundation, The Mary J. Blige and Steve Stoute Foundation for the Advancement of Women Now, Inc. (FFAWN).  i’m developing a workshop for teen girls which is tailored to the goals of the foundation.  The 3E (Empowerment through Education and Encouragement) Junior Wings Program is a series of group sessions for girls designed to address self-esteem, relationship skills, and financial literacy.   her dedication and passion for girls and women is obvious.   she has hired an amazing executive director, Madeline Nelson Small, who works tirelessly with her staff to make the mission of the foundation come to life.  this year the foundation launched its programming and there is so much more to come. i’m sure that everyone will soon see that Mary’s soul runs deeper than what we knew the songstress possessed.   For more information, visit the FFAWN website http://ffawn.org/
