Trina loves the kids!
Trina announced yesterday the re-introduction of her Diamond Doll Foundation which was previously established in 2006. Trina created the organization as a method to speak to young women across the country about relevant issues they face in the community such as teen pregnancy, runaways and self-esteem. Thru the Diamond Doll Foundation, Trina will participate in the 1st Annual “Jingle Bell Toy Drive” to benefit the children of Jackson Hospital in Miami on December 14th.
Trina will be on hand to collect toys while posing for photos and giving autographs at The Chop Shop, a popular barbershop within the Miami community. There will be free haircuts given as well as surprise appearances from special invited guests. All attendees must bring a new, unwrapped toy to participate in the festivities. The following week, Trina will present the toys collected at the drive to the children of Jackson Hospital to help boost their spirits.
“It’s important for entertainers to utilize our influence to get involved and build awareness for community programs such as the Jingle Bell Toy Drive ,” said Trina. “I am putting a renewed focus and energy into the Diamond Doll Foundation this coming year as we look to help the less fortunate and provide motivation for young people to improve their lives.”
As part of Trina’s commitment to building the impact of the Diamond Doll Foundation, Trina aims to make appearances during her tour stops to speak with young women about important issues that affect the urban community such as teen pregnancy, runaways, relationships and overall self-esteem/empowerment.
