Food, Family & Giving Back With the Stars

Published

on

Family. Food. Boisterous Laughter. Possible Snowflakes. Holidays are filled with various ingredients of love, memories and enchantment. They never feel quite as magical, however, as they do when they are also filled with the invaluable gift of giving back.

Thanksgiving serves as a reminder not only to be thankful for what we have, but to also remember those who don’t. Love was definitely felt and made known this holiday by many of our favorite celebrities! Thousands of people were the recipients of turkeys and other goods and services.

Here’s a highlight of some of our favorite celebs giving back this holiday season:

Miguel and Nazanin

They say the couple that prays together, stays together. What about the couple that gives? We’re sure that at the very least, they appreciate together. One of our favorite R&B singers, Miguel, and his longtime girlfriend, Nazanin Mandi, helped the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank box up food to those in need.        

 

Chris Brown

SOUTH JAMAICA HO– USES gave out 2,000 turkeys today. @50cent thx big bro A photo posted by @chrisbrownofficial on

 

We love it when Chris isn’t here for the drama. Instead, Chris was here to spread love to families in need by giving out turkeys in Queens, NY, just hours before he was to appear on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Chris was also here for the task of inspiring by challenging other celebrities to give back. “We think about ourselves all the time and take everything for granted…Let’s give back because it’s the right thing to do,” Brown wrote on Instagram.

A group of humble hearts joining together to make one by fulfilling the same mission is a sure way to leave some remnants of love on your dinner plate! These three ladies volunteered at the Los Angeles’ Mission’s annual Thanksgiving celebration this year. Shameless actress, Emmy Rossum, tweeted: “I never feel better than when I’m giving my time to something bigger.” Along with a number of other volunteers, they helped the LA Mission to feed approximately 5,000 people.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sevyn Streeter and Andre Berto

Mother Teresa once said, “Love begins by taking care of the closest ones—the ones at home.” Multi-talented R&B Singer, Sevyn Streeter, not only shows her support of this notion through her recent single, 4th Street, but also by giving back. She teamed up with boxer Andre Berto to give out more than 200 turkeys to those in need in her hometown of Polk County.        

J. Cole

   “No role models and I’m here right now,” J. Cole raps in his song, “No Role Modelz.” Cole was definitely here to be just that this holiday season when he stopped by a hospital in his hometown to visit one of his teen fans, Tae Stackhouse, who is battling cancer. “I’m proud to say that I’m blessed even tho I have cancer he told me to keep positive so that’s what ima do. Thanks J. Cole,” Stackhouse wrote on his Facebook account.                              

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

T.I.

 

The rapper and family man partnered up with Atlanta’s mayor, Kasim Reed, to host their 12th Annual Thanksgiving Food Drive. As expected, T.I. was joined by his family members and adorable sons to giveaway turkeys and other food items to Atlanta’s senior citizens and families who are less fortunate. As Ben Franklin famously stated, “Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.” Way to go T.I.! 

Giving back is always important. What do you think about celebs giving back this holiday season?

Now signing off with the reminder: Don’t wait for the world to recognize your greatness, live it and let the world catch up to you.

Tamara Shanice is an actress, writer, lyricist and fashionable hustler who takes pride in entertaining and educating through her art. She's a wandering spirit who loves to travel the world and marvel at the works of God's paintbrush.

Regardless of whatever the job was, big or small – she’s said to have completed each task with a smile on her face.

 

“Momma Ray is a miracle worker” – Alberta O’Brien, High School Principal.

 

 
Everyone that comes into grandmom’s Ray life, she is known to impact them in an empowering way. When needed, she is always a ray of sunshine and the backbone for everyone. It is because of this, Jeannie Mai came to the school to surprise and honor grandmom Ray for her years of service and commitment.

You’re probably already aware that your smile could change someone’s day. We hear it all of the time: Smile. Be kind. Be courteous. Use manners.  But would you believe it if I told you that your smile could change someone’s life?

It can. Because it’s not just the smile, it’s also what comes with it. The confidence, the happiness, the positive vibes and energy that are released into world that may translate to a silent affirmation for someone else.

Smile, because you never know who’s watching feeding off of you. It’s a small act of kindness with a big impact on both the giver and the receiver.

And when it comes to small acts of kindness, too often we underestimate the power of them.

When you do things that aren’t required of you in hopes of helping or uplifting a person you know nothing about, not only does it become infectious, but the world finds a way to bring that goodness back around to you.

When Florida State University football player, Travis Rudolph, recently ate lunch with Bo Paske, an autistic boy who sat alone in the cafeteria, he could not have fathomed the national attention that small act of his was about to garner.

Not only did he help to bring more awareness to the autistic community, but he changed the lives of both Bo and his mother, and caught the attention of the media and sports community that will only prove to be beneficial to his career.
And all of this sparked from a picture he didn’t even know was being taken.

Again, you never know who’s watching you.

The powerful possibilities that come with randomly doing something nice for people are endless and rewarding. You could simply change their day by lifting their spirits or you could change their way of thinking about both the world and others.

Not only are acts of kindness significant, but they’re really easy to practice. Here are five ways you can be kind to someone today:

  1. Hand write a thank you note: handwritten anything is becoming so rare that taking the time to do so in the form of a thank you note will be sure to linger in the mind of the receiver.
  2. Support a dream or positive venture: You see it on your Facebook or Twitter timeline all of the time. Someone asking you to “like” their new business page or fill out a brief survey for their new idea. How long does it really take to do something like this? Do it.
  3. Compliment someone: You never know the kind of day someone is having. Write a compliment on your waiter or cashier’s receipt. Tell your coworker how great they are at their job. Tell the person on the train next to you how much you love their hair.
  4. Tell someone you appreciate them: It’s so easy to go on about our days expecting to receive certain things from certain people. Whether that’s money from mom or an invitation from your friend, tell that person you appreciate them for playing a positive role in your life.
  5. Smile: Like Nike, just do it.
