    Peace and Blessings Family,

    Brother LilPea started a thread, and in it I said that we are as close as any others, when it comes to realizing the goal of collectively funding our own endeavor.

    (As much of a struggle as it is for us, we are still as close as most.)

    I said that without really knowing if my statement was true. I can't think of a whole bunch ... churches / religious organizations perhaps ... but nothing outside of that.

    So I'm wondering Family ... what collective endeavors are primarily funded by Black People? Pick any in the world.

    Can you name any? We need to know of these endeavors, to have examples of us doing for self.

    Please share.

    Thanks

    :heart:

    Destee

    One quickly comes to my mind, currently, the FEFF, Family Emergency Financial Fund, right here at Destee.com.

    My over sight Sister Destee, and I stand corrected; it's just that I'm fired up and ready to go:).
