“Many things in life inspire philanthropy, such as faith in humanity and your believe in the human spirit to overcome.”
My grandmother use to say a closed hand never receives or gives; an open palm is an invitation to others. Those words echoed in this 30+ year-old Brooklyn-born journalist’s head (hey fam this is Nat Henry) several times when I volunteered with my Nana Grace at several non-profits and charities.
If You Blinked blog is dedicated to my grandmother’s legacy of philanthropic works and chronicles African American celebrities charitable good deeds that go unnoticed by mainstream press. So don’t blink on the good vibes we will be tracking.
