@coachtishawn: Help @essencemag Best-selling Author Tia Hines Giveaway 1000 BOOKS To HS Students

                   OCASE Foundation                                                                                                             GoFundMe

This month, Essence Magazine Best-selling Author Tia Hines, a youth mentor is launching a fundraising on GoFundMe  for the purpose of receiving funding to purchase 1,000 of her books, “That Girl is Poison” to be included in the high school backpack giveaway. The yearly Backpack and School Supplies event will be held on Saturday August 15, 2015 at Rita’s, 2318 Rhode Island Avenue NE, Washington, DC 20018 from 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM hosted by the 501c3 organization, OCASE Foundation.
 
Hines will be traveling from Boston, MA to Washington, DC during her “Back-to-School Book Signing Tour” for an educational cause in promoting reading specifically for high school students. Hines is spreading a message through her novel, “The Girl is Poison” published by Urban Books. This work sheds light on the most talked about youth discussions involving the following topics:

- HIV
- Teen Rape
- Promiscuity
- Child Sexual Assault
- Pregnancy
- Abuse (Emotional, Mental, Physical)
- Neglect

Her powerful lessons in this book reflects on respect, love and protection.

OCASE Foundation located in Washington, DC was established to provide an athletic educational platform for students to thrive at their best. Now in their 5th year of hosting the Backpack and School Supplies event, OCASE is planning on giving away approximately 5,000 backpacks to students for the upcoming school year 2015-2016. The event will be sectioned by school level, Elementary School, Middle School and High School. Hines will be located in the high school section to sign books. Volunteers will help Hines pass out the backpacks with the appropriate school age supplies. The funds raised will cover the costs of the books to be included in the backpacks with supplies.

Many families struggle with providing their children with the proper school materials and may not encourage the importance of reading or talking about relevant subject matters that affects teens. During the event, attendees will hear Hines give an important speech. Whether hearing her speak or reading her words, people are immediately drawn to Hine’s fictional character experiences many can relate to, and her own growing pain experiences after surviving child molestation…and, of course, her motivational life lessons.

It will cost Hines approximately $ 5,000.00 to cover 1,000 books for the high school students. Hines hopes to raise over this amount in order to provide funds for the backpacks that includes her books. If you’re able to help in any way possible that would be greatly appreciated. To learn more about this cause, please visit the OCASE Foundation .

This cause encourages reading, bringing awareness to OCASE Foundation’s family event that has helped many students in the past 4 years and you can support the efforts of making another child’s life enriching. You may see for yourself by watching the video and viewing the photos from last year’s event located on OCASE Foundation.

Please contact Tishawn Marie, Publicist at tishawnmarie@tiahines.com or call 209.227.4643 to discuss your possible options in helping Hines and the OCASE Foundation. Thank you for your time and consideration in this matter. We look forward to hearing favorably from you soon.

[FOOD FOR THOUGHT]

“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
