Giving back....

The reason for the season is not completely forgotten.  As so greatly illustrated by Joy to the World Fest, there are those that care. By working within the community Tyrone L.Gilliams has created an organization that creates a united function to benefit the community in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.  This in turn encourages the community to look within itself to help others.  This four-day event is created to have something for everyone from young to old.  Different activities that are not just adult related and spreading the events over four days not only gives many in the community to participate but also ensures the money for the cause.  Having such artist such as Jamie Fox or P. Diddy are only the topping to the cake.  This event embraces the local artist that are form the area that want to give back.  Such artist as Meek Mills or Young Chris are featured in concert that is hosted by Terrance form Bet’s 106 in Park on December 18, 2010.  Having one day where children 4-16 are able to come and enjoy a day of free games, rides, food and music is what many in the community need.  This day was also filled with the option of health screening, which many in today’s society go without mainly because they are not able to afford such luxury.  Encouraging many people to bring an unwrapped gift to give to another is magical moment, and is also encouraged during this event.   Things do not stop there though.  This event is a blessing in many ways.  Most events such as this one are usually done in one day where as Mr. Gilliam has created an organization that is organized for more than a day and not only provide entertainment and food but much needed moral boost and encouragement.  This event doesn't just end with hugs and handshakes but with inspiration from inspirational artist like Regina Bell and Yesha and from the Senator Anthony Hardy Williams, himself.  Through reminding the community that is okay to have dreams and even better to reach for them this event was sure to bring the Christmas spirit to some who may have given up on themselves and their dreams.  This helps to give many of those that are less fortunate the opportunity to participate in some form or fashion.
