Jesse White encourages parishioners at Jordan Temple to become organ donors during National Donate Life Month

Posted by Admin On May - 18 - 2010 ADD COMMENTS

jesse whiteIllinois Secretary of State Jesse White attended service at Jordan Temple Missionary Baptist Church to encourage parishioners to register as organ and tissue donors during National Donate Life Month in April. Pastor Stephen E. Richardson (left), Secretary White and 37th Ward Alderwoman Emma Mitts (right) participated in the service to increase awareness about organ and tissue donation.

African-Americans make up 16 percent of all donors in this country but account for 20 percent of all those who receive organ transplants. To increase the likelihood of a successful transplant, a well-matched organ often comes from a donor of the same race.

Seven-time Grammy Award winner Kirk Franklin lays out the blueprint to success

kirk_franklin_blueprintFor some people, obstacles are minor bumps in the road on the way to success. For others, they represent a major catastrophe threatening to disrupt any chance at success. But for seven-time Grammy award winner Kirk Franklin, obstacles are challenges needed to propel you through life. In THE BLUEPRINT: A Plan for Living Above Life’s Storms on sale from Gotham Books on May 18, 2010 ($25.00), Franklin reveals how he turned negative aspects from his own life-drugs, an absent father, teenage parenthood, poverty, etc.-into blessings. Franklin doesn’t claim to be perfect or have insider knowledge on how to live your life, but rather puts his setbacks and faults at the forefront showing that anyone can turn their life around and become a success. THE BLUEPRINT fills the void of not knowing which way to turn and arms readers with the necessary tools to succeed.

By the time Franklin was fifteen years old, he was a young father and just another statistic. He explains in THE BLUEPRINT, “The street corner was my classroom. The hood was my Harvard.” He went through life thinking he knew it all, and blamed his failures on not having a role model, until he realized he had to become the man he needed to be on his own. Franklin wants to help young men and women out there by providing them with THE BLUEPRINT he wished he had-advice and tips for how to become the person they need to be, no matter what the situation, or background.

Today, Franklin is the proud father of four and devoted husband of fourteen years, as well as one of the biggest multiplatinum-selling gospel artists of all time. He credits his faith in God and a very close mentor he found later in his life for his success.

THE BLUEPRINT is the essential guide to creating a better you, one day at a time.
