Lights, Camera, Action: Let's Support Camp Diva!

Remember when I talked about Angela and her girls and dancing with my dad? (If you don't, go here and come back). In that post, I introduced Angela Patton and her UH-MAZING TED talk.  I thought about Angela and her girls for the rest of the evening. I reached out to Angela via Twitter, and we've become Twitter pals.

If you know anything about me, you know that I love living in this Black female body, so anything I can do to uplift Black girls, sign me up!  I want this little blog space to be a positive place that promotes positive things, and Camp Diva and the Dad & Daughter Dance it hosts is about changing the course of girls' lives.  We often talk about fatherhood in terms of boys and their needs, but as a woman who has a dad who's active in her life, I can attest that the benefits for littler girls are immeasurable as well.

Guess what?  Camp Diva is trying to make a movie, y'all!  Angela has started a Kickstarter campaign to raise $10,000 to make the project happen, take a look at the video from the Kickstarter website: 

The movie title: Locked In NOT Locked Out. Yesssss!!!! Angela is amazing!  She gets a "Werk!" from me.  Donations can be large or small.  To make a pledge, go here.  Funds will only be deducted from her account if enough funds are raised by the deadline.  I made mine, now go handle your business!  I wanna flex on the red carpet :).

Until next time . . . let's be the change in our communities like Angela and Camp Diva.
