Slip N Slide artist Trina announced today (December 3) the participation of her Diamond Doll Foundation in the 1st annual Jingle Bell Toy Drive, a benefit drive for the children of Miamis Jackson Hospital.
To kickoff the campaign, Trina will sign autographs and collect toys at the popular Miami barbershop The Chop Shop.
Attendees who bring a new, unwrapped toy will be treated to free haircuts, and surprise appearances from special guests.
The toys will be collected by Trina herself and individually given to the convalescing children of Jackson Hospital.
The toy drive coincides with Trinas re-launching of her Diamond Doll Foundation, which focuses on educating young women on self-esteem, teen pregnancy, relationships, and community responsibility.
According to Trina, her renewed emphasis on community involvement is a direct result of her belief that entertainers have a moral responsibility to uplift the communities they influence.
Its important for entertainers to utilize our influence to get involved and build awareness for community programs such as the Jingle Bell Toy Drive, Trina explained to AllHipHop.com. I am putting a renewed focus and energy into the Diamond Doll foundation this coming year as we look to help the less fortunate and provide motivation for young people to improve their lives.
Trinas Jingle Bell Toy Drive is scheduled to commence at Jackson Hospital on December 14.
