Support "Ed Bradley Way" for a Philly Street

I met LeRoy McCarthy (@LeRoyLive) my first semester at Cheyney University. He was a Junior at the time and immediately became my Cheyney Family. LeRoy started his 'Street Honor/Recognition campaign' with a thought to have a street co-named after Christopher Wallace, aka "Biggie Smalls". His #ChristopherWallaceWay petition was just the start. He then started other petitions in and around the NYC area to honor/recognize some of Hip Hop greats. One of those petitions was for Slyvia Robinson, The Founder of SugarHill Records and who some say is the, Mother Of Hip Hop. This past summer, the City of Englewood, NJ recognized Ms. Robinson as such, by co-naming a street in her honor. Read (here).

"It's Bigger Than Hip Hop"-dead prez

Mr. McCarthy began his next quest of #Preservation, to honor one of Philly's own and Cheyney Alumnus Ed Bradley with a street co-named in his honor. Mr. McCarthy's began his mission on this quest a little over a year ago. Those in Philadelphia and the Pennsylvania area can assist Mr. McCarthy now by contacting State Senator Vincent Hughes of Philadelphia. Those outside of PA could show your support by sharing this info and in your social media, please hastag #EdBradleyWay!!! Thanks in advance for your support on this.

Help ST #KnockCancerOutDaBox With Our First Annual Campaign

The Skelle' Top family have gotten together to create our first #KnockCancerOutDaBox Campaign. For those who don't know, I (Ed Cheebz) lost my Mother to cancer in 2012. The inspiration of the campaign came from what my family went through while caring for her. This is ST's first campaign, but ST's plan is to make it an annual thing with the proceeds going to the three leading non-profit organizations assisting African American Women with Breast Cancer (here). For our first year, the ST family chose Sisters Network, Inc. as the first recipient of our campaign.

Sisters Network, Inc. is a national organization dedicated to assisting Cancer Patients and their families. The ST family is asking for your support, buy purchasing a our limited "Knock Cancer Out Da Box" t-shirt. The proceeds will go directly to Sisters Network to support all that they do with supporting families. ST would like to thank you in advance for your support. To purchase a limited edition #KnockCancerOutDaBox t-shirt, or make a donation, you can do that (here).
