To celebrate the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., actress and philanthropist Keshia Knight-Pulliam partnered with Allstate Give Back Day Hero Freedom Wright. On the Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service, the two volunteered at House Proud Atlanta to do home repairs for senior citizens. However, giving back doesn’t stop on Martin Luther King Jr. Day for these two service-oriented stars.
Keshia Knight-Pulliam is the founder of Kamp Kizzy, a non-profit 501c3 organization based in Atlanta. This organization brings girls together so that they can grow and empower one another. Freedom Wright is the creator of the “Free Your Mind” backpack drive at Holy Innocents’ Episcopal School. Wright’s past experience in the foster care system allows her to recognize the needs of many teens in the system that are often overlooked. With the “Free Your Mind” backpack drive, Wright is able to collect backpacks for teenagers in foster care.
So how can you help out with the efforts of Freedom Wright and do it in style? Backpacks are collected at Holy Innocents’ Episcopal School, and they do not have to be generic or boring–they can be bedazzled and fun! Give a unique and fashion forward gift any time at the Holy Innocents’ Episcopal School, located at 805 Mt. Vernon Highway, Atlanta, GA 30327.
