The 6th annual birthday fundraiser of Rosie “Peppy” Parke is a celebration of the joy in giving back to less fortunate children in Ghana, Jamaica, and the African Diaspora. Rosie is committed to helping as many people as possible. Her nickname, Peppy, is symbolic of the positive efforts and dynamic energy that she uses to connect people and foster community building wherever she goes.
Her humanitarian efforts have tremendously impacted the lives of some less fortunate Ghanaian parents and children—and they thank her.
Rosie Parke is the Founder of the Give Black Foundation which is an organization with a mission to support people in Ghana, Jamaica, and the African Diaspora. The fundamental aim of Rosie Parke and the Board of Directors of the Foundation is to give back to poor and marginalized Blacks.
The Foundation aims to utilize time, talents, and resources to provide personal attention and direct benefits to children, youth, and their families so they may live with dignity, achieve their desired potential and participate fully in society. Learn more about the Give Black Foundation here.
Rosie invites you to celebrate with her and joyously give as well. She will be hosting an evening of food and musical entertainment in another effort to raise funds to support the annual education of at least 10 students in Ghana and the building of a bathroom for an Orphanage in Ghana. Rosie will travel to Ghana in November 2017 with the group, Africa for the Africans.
The event will be held on Saturday, September 16, 2017 from 9 pm – 1 am at the Adinkra Cultural Arts Studio, 3808 34th Street, Mount Rainier, Maryland. Click for event details.
For the past five years, Rosie has been celebrating her birthday in a spirit of cheerfulness for charitable causes. She invites the world to participate and make contributions to empower her efforts to help needy children in Ghana, Jamaica, and the entire African Diaspora.
She says, “Please consider joining me on this journey by being a part of what is bigger than me, you, and the people we are giving back to. Join me in making a difference by giving back to Blacks.”
