National Action Networks and Rev. Al Sharpton hosted the 2nd annual Triumph Awards at Rose theatre, Jazz at Lincoln Center. The black tie event honored those who have made a positive impact beyond their performance on stage, in the arts, in sports, and in the community. Tyler Perry received the Chairman Award for Historic & Transformative Science. Chris & Malaak Rock received the President’s Award for Service & Humanitarian Efforts amongst others.
We can make a positive impact that doesn’t involve giving money. It can be something as small as going to the store for an elderly neighbor, gifting to the goodwill slightly used clothing, shovel and sweep your neighbors steps, volunteer to provide tutoring to our kids, and joining the girls and boys club to offer guidance to our youth. It’s the small things that we are able and capable of doing that will benefit someone else and make a difference in their lives.
EACH ONE TEACH ONE TO MAKE A CHANGE
