I started The Tavon Mason Loves the Kids Foundation after playing in the NFL with the NY Jets in order to promote kids being Active, Healthy to promote Education and "Dare Kids to Be Great". Since starting in 2011 my organization have evolved and branch out from just doing sports fit days to our annual character slipper drive where we collect slippers for newborns to 18 year old kids and surprise them in various children's hospitals. We also host our annual visit to the Eastern Family Resource Center a women and children's shelter where we give different books, clothes and etc. I also do speaking engagements and reading engagements. Everything can be found on my website and social media sites.
Why did you become an Entrepreneur?
Honestly, my goal is to work for myself. I am still pushing that dream but that is my reason for becoming an Entrepreneur.
Why did you choose your business niche?
I chose to do philanthropy and my organization because I always wanted to help children. I'm still working on getting my own center but that has been a dream of mines since high school. I love making children laugh and smile so becoming a children's book author was awesome, especially with my background as an former athlete I knew I could grab the children's attention.
Most Exciting Life Experience?
My most exciting life experience other than my kids would be making it to the NFL and recently becoming a published children's book author. My new book titled "Tavon Does it All"

“The man who stops advertising to save money is like the man who stops the clock to save time”
Why Is It... A man wakes up in the morning after sleeping in an advertised bed, washes with an advertised soap, shaves with an advertised razor, sits down and drinks advertised tea or coffee, drives to work in an advertised car and writes with an advertised pen. Then... He refuses to advertise, saying "Advertising doesn't work". But when his business fails, he finally advertises: "Business for Sale" - Anonymous
