Black Women Stand Up Encourages Individuals to “Do More Give More” This #GivingTuesday and Beyond

Black Women Stand Up (BWSU) encourages helping Black owned and women owned not-for-profit organizations through their #DoMoreGiveMore Challenge.

The goal for the #DoMoreGiveMore Challenge is to foster end of year giving for #GivingTuesday and beyond, and help raise funds for our spotlighted organization. We want everyone to experience the joy and rewards of giving and showing support to those who are working towards change in local communities near and far.

Check out Co-Founder, Tiffany Braxton on Periscope introducing the #DoMoreGiveMoreChallenge’s Co-Founder, Tiffany Braxton has been a champion of not-for-profit organizations, and has worked behind the scenes helping with a few that are near and dear to her heart with their fundraising and strategic planning efforts.  Understanding how tough it can be for the smaller Black and women owned organizations to get the funding needed to properly grow, which will then allow them the ability to do more in serving their respective markets, she came up with the #DoMoreGiveMore Challenge.

“This is a way to start right where I am, and with those in my reach.  I want my family and friends, and others within the BWSU online community to get in the habit of supporting those causes that matter to them, and or those organizations that we will be highlighting. Many of our people believe that you have to be a celebrity or have a lot of money to give, but the truth is, you don’t.  Every little bit counts, what is big started small.  We are clear that there are organizations who are afforded big donations and fundraisers due to celebrity attachment or involvement, and that is fine, just as much there are organizations working extremely hard to raise their needed funds.  Either way, giving and being in support of these organizations are important, especially with the uncertainty surrounding our current political state and racial unrest.”

The Ask:

  1. Give anywhere between $5 or $25 today or before end of year to our spotlighted organization – Veterans Entrepreneurial Development Initiatives, Inc. (VEDI), to help get their Veteran transport van back up and on the road. Visit the VEDI Blog for more information on the organization.  Here is the link to the organization’s current GoFundMe Video.  VEDI is the brainchild of Visionary Meta Mereday from New York.
  2. Commit to adopting (being a continued supporter) of the organization by contributing at least $25 (or more if you can) a month or quarterly, whichever works for your budget.
  3. Include giving to an organization in your monthly or quarterly budget.
  4. Help spread the word about the mission and work of the organization.
  5. Connect with us across social media by using the hashtag #DoMoreGiveMore to join the discussion, or let us know that you are in support of and a part of the challenge, or to suggest an organization you believe we should know about.

The BWSU Family thanks you in advance for your support!



Paying Homage to Gwen Ifill

Hearing that long-time Journalist Gwen Ifill passed away on Monday, November 14, 2016 from a type of Uterine (endometrial) Cancer saddened many, especially’s  (BWSU) Co-Founder, Tiffany Braxton, who in 2013 lost her mother to the same type of cancer.  That prompted an annual cancer awareness initiative “Love Your Va-Jay-Jay” Day (read more about that “Love Your Va-Jay-Jay Day” April 10th, 2016).  Today we pay homage to Gwen Ifill, a woman who made such an impact on the world through her work, and we honor this Queen by adding her to our Cancer Memorial Wall, which honors Black Women and all Women of Color who have transitioned on from either one of the five types of gynecological cancers or breast cancer.

Standing Up for Our Kings & Communities #PhilandoCastile #AltonSterling

Black Women please continue to Stand Up, as we are the backbones of our families and communities! We need each other even more now, and must keep our families in tact and love on & uplift our Kings as much as we can!

We love you, Queens.

So they had us celebrate the Fourth of July singing & screaming “God Bless America” all weekend only to start our week like this… 

From morning news to breaking evening reports, we have been inundated with traumatizing images of a back to back massacre on the hearts and psyche of African-Americans. Who else is fed up of the societal castration of our Black Men with graphics horrific enough to cause PTSD to viewers while sending fearful oppressive subliminal messages?


This is what we as #BlackMothers are up against and fear everyday! Not only do we have to worry about our husbands, sons, nephews, etc.being gunned down by racist “hit men in blue uniforms.”

We have to now think about ourselves and daughters, mothers, aunts, etc. being violently attacked or killed by anyone of them who feel Our lives mean nothing. They continue their attempts, killing us with blatant dehumanization & traumatizing subliminal media tactics.

Please join our CALL TO ACTION live chats this weekend as we sound off in the name of HEALING from the disturbing images and realities of this week. 

We can’t just standby so stand up with us online for real talk & strategic action towards peace and healing. 

Below are links to connect with us online. You can also use hashtag #BWSU to find us on social media. 

Our live Periscope broadcasts schedule & replays will be posted soon. Connect & express yourselves on our ‘scopes.

Find & Follow us on Periscope: @BlkWomenStandUp



In closing, we had to bless you with this poignant post shared on our BWSU Facebook.

Why is it that folk fail to believe that we LOVE THE BLACK MALES IN OUR FAMILIES JUST AS MUCH AS ANY OTHER CULTURE AND OR RACE… a mother is a mother, a wife is a wife, doesn’t matter if you’re black, white, yellow or green,… as a matter of fact I believe we love our black males even Harder because of all the BS they’re up against… When a black women  gives birth to a male child that’s when all her worries begin… PEOPLE, BLACK AND WHITE please let’s come together on saving our children…. Black men I’m talking to you mostly START RESPECTING YOURSELF, YOUR WOMEN AND YOUR CHILDREN… if you don’t no one else will… It all begins WITH US… WE as a people… THE FIRST WAY TO START IS BY PULLING UP YOUR FUCKING PANTS… come on now… Love yourself so that  maybe the kkk in blue, the HIT MEN IN BLUE can stop killing u off…. Please, please, please… This goes to all my fb family and friends… Let’s start today…  I pray that NOTHING like this happens to my SON OR GRANDSON because only GOD KNOWS their’s not enough hit men in blue uniforms to stop me… I’m going to leave it at that… I pray for all of our black males… And most importantly BLACK MEN PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE STOP KILLING EACH OTHER… God bless
