Share Detroit held its second annual Summer SHARE event at Jimmy John’s Field on June 10th. Nonprofit partners, sponsors, and community members came together to enjoy a BBQ meal and celebrate the start of summer watching the Eastside Diamond Hoppers split a double header with the Birmingham Bloomfield Beavers from the stadium’s patio.
Sunday morning I had the opportunity to meet a special individual that survived a harsh ‘lifequake’ moment when she was a teenager. Life often throws many unexpected realities at us and often tests our spirit and perseverance to make life purposeful. Tyra Moore was a teenage mom at 15. She was terrified to tell her mom and gave birth to her daughter the same week she finally broke the news. After the shock wore off, support came from all of her family, friends, and community, providing essential baby needs at a critical time.
We have so much great news to share from our nonprofit partners about their amazing work. But, we'd love to hear from you. Let us know if you have stories you'd like to tell and we'll make you a guest blogger!!
