Currently I am working with Fayette Cares on a year-long project. Every year Fayette Cares conducts a toy drive at Christmas to help less fortunate families in our community. I have sat down with the directors and staff at Fayette Cares to come up with a year-long project. I am hoping this way people will have all year to donate and not just one time a year and more donations can be made. Maybe we can reach out to more families in need this Christmas. Here is my current project(s):
February - Paint me a Picture Month (crayons, coloring books, markers, paint, chalkboards, molding clay, construction paper, etc.) - March - Snuggle up Month (new teddy bears or stuffed toys) - April - Don’t get Board Month (new board games, cards, etc.) - May - Ready to Read Month (new books for all ages) - June - Piece it Together Month (new puzzles) - July - All Dolled up Month (new dolls: Barbie’s, baby dolls, rag dolls, GI Joe’s, wrestlers, etc.) - August - Cruising Month (new cars and trucks: can be die cast, plastic (big or small), trains, etc.) - September - Just for Babies Month (new baby and toddler toys) - October - Diggin Dinosaurs Month (new dinosaur toys) - November - Let’s Play Dress Up Month (new dress up clothes; princesses, fireman, fairies, policemen, etc.) - December – Donate any new toys
I am continuing my Helping Hands of TN platform that focuses on youth volunteerism in our community. This will be our 4th year and I hope it is the best yet. This will also be my 2nd year directing my own Crowns that Care pageant (all proceeds to benefit Fayette Cares).

March 20, 2014 - LIVING A RICHER LIFE: with Vance Simms, Founder/Executive Director of Father Matters, Inc. and his wife Rana. Authors of “Brokenness Produces Pearls”
THIS WEEK'S MESSAGE: If you’ve ever heard the words, “Just wait until your father gets home,” you probably grew up in a family where you recall those moments when your dad walked through the door, home from work. Fathers are frequently viewed as the go-to parent for discipline and sound advice while mothers are the go-to parent for nurturing, sympathy and comfort. However, fathers matter more than just being the person in the family who may rule with an iron fist. In many of today’s families, Dads are not in the home at all and, too often, due to broken relationships. How can we begin the healing process when it is possible and enrich all the lives involved?
Vance, the Founder/Executive Director of Father Matters, “Fathers Mentoring Fathers”, commits himself to building stronger, healthier communities by supporting, encouraging, and enlightening today’s fathers and families. Rana serves her local community in many fashions, through her work, supporting young children and their families, and through volunteerism in church and school. Vance and Rana reside in Phoenix, AZ with their five young children.
