The tgin Foundation facilitates a number of initiatives that lead back to our mission, which is where your donation goes. We partner with Lyft to provide free rides to breast health appointments as well as COVID vaccinations. To date, over $12,700 has been given for 500 rides to breast health (and Covid-19 vaccine) appointments. Over the month of October, we recruit over 50 ambassadors and creators to spread information about early detection and methods to mitigate risk of breast cancer via social media. We also attend community events to educate women on the health disparities black women in Chicago experience, in an effort to close the gap and empower women to be their best health advocate. For more information on our initiatives, follow us on social media, and visit our website at tginFoundation.org.

 

In 2015, Harvard graduate and CEO of Thank God It’s Natural, Chris-Tia Donaldson was diagnosed with breast cancer at the young age of 36. During her treatment, she learned that having money could make the difference between living and dying when it came to treating this condition. In her observation, very few organizations existed that provided support and social services to help women with transportation, child care, or seeking disability leave from their place of employment.

 

Today, she uses her success in the beauty space to advocate for women experiencing financial difficulties, who are undergoing treatment, to highlight health disparities due to race and socio-economic factors, and to empower women to listen to their bodies.
