And personally, I couldn’t be more excited.
For a four year period, in Blacksburg, SC, a small community of friends and helpers comprised of Smokin RITA, held cookouts, fundraisers and chicken stew suppers to raise money for several different causes. These causes included if someone was suffering from a catastrophic illness to Kids For Christmas.
The service organization seemed to take a hiatus with weather and personal issues within group members.
The past two months, Smokin RITA has returned and is smokin once again! There was a BBQ sale in late September. This past weekend it was chicken stew and beef hash. You could feel the energy and love rekindled, just like we never left.
During these times, the men and women put aside racism, politics and focus on praying for one other, combating social issues and making the community better. I am down for all of that.
Ironically this hiatus took place during the launching of #imjustdrew. As I slowly work towards the completion of my second book, I am so glad this organization is going strong again. It is one of the things that truly embodies all that #imjustdrew is about.
Continue to do positive things in your community as Smokin RITA has all of these years. People do notice and appreciate it.
