Campaign ends December 15

(Washington, DC) – It started on September 1 with a simple tweet from @Betta_Mo (Maurice McClanahan) asking his followers to support #SANTACAUSE by giving $10 in support of Safe Shores, the advocacy center for abused and molested children. From there, with the DMV music scene at the forefront, entertainers, socialites, young professionals and more have contributed nearly $3,500 for this holiday giving initiative designed to create an organized platform for helping those in need during the holiday season.

“SantaCause is about the quantity of individuals involved and the quality of their hearts and kindness, more so than the quantity of a monetary donation. ‘It takes a village’ mentality,” McClanahan said. “The purpose of collections is to select a different charity, annually, by providing a monetary amount for the organization to use as their greatest needs demand. This year Safe Shores children’s advocacy center is the beneficiary.”

Safe Shores - The DC Children's Advocacy center is an independent nonprofit organization that leads a private-public partnership established to provide a coordinated and child-friendly approach to the investigation and prosecution of civil and criminal child abuse cases in the District of Columbia. Safe Shores ensures that children receive supervision, meals, clean clothes, crisis intervention and other emergency victim services during the joint investigative process.

Gifts for the SantaCause campaign can be made until December 15, at SafeShores.org “Donate Now.” Organizers ask that donors designate “SantaCause” with gifts. The SantaCause “committee” is matching donations of $100 or more. This program demonstrates both the power of social media and the kind-hearted spirit that resides at the core of the DMV hip-hop and entertainment communities.
Special thanks to all donors past and future, and those who made gifts of $100 or more, including Suite 202, Will Rap 4 Food Inc., DMVVixen.com, PUV Radio/WLVS, Sonya P. Collins, Film Director Tanecia Britt, Radio Personality Sunni (WPGC 95.5FM), Music Manager Janay Pinnix (AHR Studios/ASCEND Music and Media Academy) and Hip-Hop Artists White Folkz, Harmony Muzik, Porche’ 9’11, and Maurice “Mo Betta” McClanahan.
