This past summer Temika Moore had the pleasure of working with Meant 2 Live Foundation for Splendor Fest, a Washington, DC event. The purpose of the initiative was to bring awareness to the issues the homeless community faces and provide resources to help meet immediate needs. The event provided blessing bags, clothing, food, haircuts, personal toiletries, biblical encouragement via Pastor Marcus Gill, as well as musical inspiration from musicians within the community including Inspirational Soul Singer/Songwriter, Temika Moore. As a result of her participation in the event, she was asked to participate in the organization's outreach efforts in Zambia as well as bringing Splendor Fest to Zambia.
Temika Moore needs your support for her first mission trip to Zambia June 1-10, 2018 with Meant 2 Live Foundation in support of providing resources and help for under-served communities. She'll be using her musical background to help orphans in Zambia. Please consider giving toward her fundraising goal. She is working toward raising $3,000 which will cover travel and lodging expenses, and also include tools and resources for the community in which she'll be serving.
