Give 828!

This week is a special week! It's a week that leads into significant parts of our history that occurred on the same date, August 28th. August 28, 1955: "14-year-old Emmett Till was brutally murdered by three white men, which became a “flashpoint in the civil rights movement.” August 28, 1963: "Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered his iconic “I Have A Dream” speech in Washington, D.C." August 28, 2005: "Hurricane Katrina made landfall in Louisiana. The storm, which devastated New Orleans, inordinately impacted many of the city’s Black residents." August 28, 2008: "Then-Senator Barack Obama accepted the Democratic nomination for president, becoming the first Black man to ever win the nomination and bid for the presidency." (1. "") With this quick history lesson, it reveals why Young, Black & Giving Back Institute (YBGB) created "Give 08/28". With that being said, on August 21, 2021, Ashlee White (Founder and President of Life After Birth Midlands) went LIVE on her Facebook page to make a big announcement. The special news was that Life After Birth Midlands has been one of the selected, black led non-profit organizations, to be a part of "Give 8/28"! Due to our organization being one of the many selected, our goal this week is to have as many people donating to help support our cause, which is combating postpartum depression, lowering mother/infant mortality rates, improving breastfeeding, and providing education and resources to our community.
