    • Make-An-Impression Fund Raiser

    Every year at #ABookInHandLIVE events is an opportunity to raise funds for despondent kids as we empower them for life, buy books and other school necessities.

    We partner with our friends at Dream Nurture Foundation (dreamnurturefoundation.org), managed by a fellow Writer and Humanitarian, Seyi Oluyole. Since 2015, we have donated all funds raised at the event to them as the DreamCatchers engage the audience with mind blowing performances in dance.
