We love celebs that do good! Over the weekend, V-103 radio personality Egypt Sherrod’s Egypt Care Family Foundation, hosted it’s first ‘Sister’s Keepers Shut-In’. The purpose of the ‘shut in’, was to bring together from the Atlanta metro area, for an evening of sisterhood and power. Hosted by Egypt, the event also featured a panel discussion with reality stars Nicci Gilbert (R&B Divas), Mimi Faust (Love & Hip Hop Atlanta), Towanda Braxton (Braxton Family Values), The Sisterhood’s Ivy Couch and PastorDomonique and Deb Antney. Egypt explains the motivation behind her foundation.
I started the Egypt Cares Family Foundation because I found that I was often volunteering for other organizations and it just made sense to sort of organzine from within and do things that were truly who I am at my core. It was to expand my brand in a way that could help other people. So at the Egypt Cares Family foundation we believe that family is foundation, so we try to tools spiritually based the family unit overall. Because if we can strength the women that are carrying the load, because a lot of us have become the mule of society. So if we can strength the women and re connect with our core then overall the family unit will be much stronger. This is one of the many programs that we do and the reason I wanted to do a sisters keeper shut in is because i think black women we’re in a state of emergency. We’re doing to much and trying to be to much to to many people we’re forgetting who we are or whos we are. This is a opportunity for us to sister hood re connect create an environment of love and acceptance recognize our own personal power so that we can start new chapters of our lives.
