As promised: thanks to your generous @gofundme contributions and the help of @menswearhouse, I had the privilege to take these young men out last night to network and break bread.
Never having been to the financial district of our city, let alone the 36th floor #BostonCollege Club with a 360 degree sunset view of Boston, these young men got perspective on a different future. Each walked away with at least 10 business cards from some of the area's most successful men of color, follow-up meetings, and were already invited to breakfast at the #Harvard Club with one of my mentors this week. Thank you to all my brothers in the Boston Men's Dinner Group for being our brothers' keepers (and Anna Foster!!) I appreciate your commitment to continue to support my guys.
I'm not doing justice the impact your donations had on them, but if you take the time to zoom in on their faces, you'll see the confidence a suit can bring, empowering young men to shake hands, ask for cards, and build bridges. Thank you! Please share!
