It’s Ironic that Michael Baisden is bringing his ‘One Million Mentors’ Campaign, a campaign to “save the kids”, to Detroit at such a time. Michael Baisden wanted to set the record straight with all the latest tragedies in Detroit. Of course he called our very own Mildred Gaddis to the show, which is Nationally Syndicated for all the latest facts. Listen to these two news-makers them selves get to the bottom of this:
72-City Bus Tour Delivers Message On Need for Local Mentors
The Michael Baisden Show will broadcast live from Detroit as part of The One Million Mentors Campaign, which is designed to encourage qualified adults to sign up as mentors. There are more than 14 million children in the United States in need of mentoring and Michael Baisden will be bringing his message of support to 72 cities during the next seven months with the Save Our Kids Bus Tour.
In each city along the tour, local mentors will share their personal success stories of working with children in their community. Representatives from local mentoring programs, including Big Brothers Big Sisters, The National CARES Mentoring Movement and 100 Black Men will be available to register qualified adults for matching with area children on waiting lists for mentors. In the Detroit area, there are thousands of children currently on mentor waiting lists.
In addition to driving registration for new mentors, Michael Baisden will also be raising funding for mentoring programs across the country by matching contributions from participants up to $350,000. The Michael Baisden Foundation, which is dedicated to providing educational support in communities, will then direct the funds toward local mentoring programs.
The program is free and open to all ages. Any local 501(c)3 focused on mentoring is welcome to participate.
