Dance Marathon 2019

Back in 1997, my parents received some devastating news. They were told that my twin brother, Griffen Jennings, and I were suffering from twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome. More so, they were informed there was an 80% chance they would lose one or both babies. However, with experimental medical intervention a miracle occurred, and at 35 weeks my parents gave birth to beautiful healthy twin boys on March 10th, 1998. 

As I continue to get older, I feel more and more grateful to be healthy and have my twin brother by my side to enjoy life. Therefore, three years ago I decided to join Dance Marathon because I felt connected toward creating miracles for children in need. 

Over the past three years, I have raised over $10,000 for the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. The money raised is used to help pay for equipment, treatment, and research to help children with incurable diseases. To help raise money, I often incentivize my audience through giveaways and more in exchange for a donation or re-share. 

Thank you to everyone who has donated to me in the past! If you would like to donate today, follow this link: https://donate.giving.ufhealth.org/fundraiser/2264507

Always note if you are unable to donate, your influence is in equal worth. Share my Dance Marathon posts and link to help spread the message

Bella's Story

Bella and her twin sister, Jesubelle, were born 3 months premature in South Florida. At 3 weeks old, Bella had a pulmonary hemorrhage (her lung’s could not operate at full strength) and her only chance at life would be a lung transplant. She was placed on the waiting list at Shands Hospital to receive the transplant and waited nine months for the call. Since the transplant, she has been in and out of the hospital many times, but she continues to amaze doctors with her will to fight for life. Many of the machines used to assist Bella’s everyday life were paid from the support from Dance Marathon Fundraising. Thanks to Dance Marathon and all medical staff, she has been given a second chance at life. I am beyond inspired and privileged to to share Bella’s story and winning battle.

Transkids Purple Rainbow Foundation

The TransKids Purple Rainbow Foundation (TKPRF) aims to enhance the lives of transgender and gender non-conforming youth and their families. We strive to create more acceptance and understanding in society through a message of unconditional love, awareness, and tolerance.

Families need to support their children and allow them to grow-up as their authentic selves. It is our goal to educate and enlighten society to seek fair and equal treatment for all transgender youth.

I currently help to raise awareness for the charity by running the website and the charities social media. If you are transgender and have a story to share, I encourage you to go the the website or Instagram and tell us your story. We would love to make your voice heard and share it with the world.

No Shave November

#NoShaveNovember

No Shave November

In November 2019, my dad, brother, and I decided to participate in No Shave November to raise awareness and money for cancer. We grew out our beards and posted all across social media to help raise money and awareness for the cause. We encourage you to help us continue our battle in fighting cancer. Together, we can help find a cure for cancer.

Attached below is progression of my beard from November 1 through December 1st. The message behind growing your hair out is to embrace your hair, which many cancer patients lose, by letting it grow wild and free.

Watch the video and comment whether you like “Beard” or “No Beard.”
