Volunteering for a change!

“I want to die empty, I want to leave behind a legacy , I want to make a difference , I want the world to know that I came , I lived and I loved…”  http://youtu.be/_5x-y0NdzRw

As part of making a difference in the world , I started to volunteer ( in my ‘created’ time) for a foundation The Irede Foundation that empowers child amputees.

I managed a charity walk tagged “OUT ON A LIMB” which took place on the 12th of April 2014 in Lagos Nigeria.

In attendance was Ace Nollywood Actress, Kate Henshaw and Comedy Industry Pioneer, Ali Baba, top-notch personalities, professionals, members of the society and children .

The 2 kilometer walk which kicked off at about 8:30am from the YMCA Building premises as the convergent point on Awolowo Road Ikoyi had over 600 participants  who walked to Falomo Roundabout and back.

Aside the two entertainment veterans in the movie and comedy industry, other notable personalities in attendance were seasoned news archor and reporter of Channels TV, Adesewa Josh, Praise Fowowe, Diekololami Olu-Adegoke, and Winner of MTN Project Fame Season 5, Ayobami Ayoola, Road runners Cycling and Recreational club

Today 5 child amputees are smiling and on their way to getting their prosthetic limb.I am so excited.

Join me next year to extend limbs and raise champions.
