The four entertainers made their way to Citizens Trust Bank in Atlanta to open up new personal accounts at the small, black owned financial institution. In doing that, they hope to inspire others to start banking small and “banking black.”

Killer Mike said on Instagram, “Four Entertainers Four New Accounts! #BankSmall #BankLocal #BankBlack #CitizensTrustBank #happyblackhistorymonth”

DSC_0006Tis the season to be of service and Kandi Burruss is doing just that; to help make the holidays brighter for 10 lucky single mothers who are expecting. The affair was held in Atlanta at a posh event facility that was filled to the rim with all kinds of gifts that an expecting mother and new baby will need and love. The ten mothers submitted profound essays to Kandi’s non-profit “Kandi Cares” sharing their unique stories of not only being pregnant and but being single too.

DSC_0038The pregnant mommies all received $500.00 checks to supplement their growing expenses and over $1,000 in products/services to help make their transition to motherhood easier. The event was truly inspiring and helped make everyone in attendance feel really good about giving and the holidays.DSC_0019
