The Glen “Big Baby” Davis Foundation
Growing up in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, in a single-parent household with five other family members had an indelible effect on Glen. He was one of the lucky ones, having had several helping hands along the way to guide him and keep him on the right path. It is for this reason, whether he’s encouraging a young person with a disease through the Make-A-Wish foundation or recording a PSA in conjunction with UNICEF’s Haiti Relief efforts, Glen “Big Baby” Davis strongly believes in and demonstrates “of whom much is given, much is expected.”
Glen established this 501(c)3 foundation earlier this year. Its programs are aimed at encouraging inner city youth to stay in school and away from defiant behavior and criminal activity by focusing on literacy, athletic and healthy recreational activities. The mission is supported by donations from individuals, corporations, grants and fundraising.
Thank you for your interest in the Glen ‘Big Baby’ Davis Foundation. Your support is greatly appreciated. The gift of reading can make a difference in every child’s life. Your contribution can help ensure that Glen’s foundation continues to share its message that reading is fundamental and important to succeed in life.
BOOKING IT WITH BABY
The Glen “Big Baby” Davis Foundation launched in the summer of 2011 with an annual event, Booking it with Baby, in partnership with the East Baton Rouge Parish Library System. The foundation will join with the library to utilize its mobile units, Books on Wheels, to bring books and literacy to kids in the community at various camps and libraries throughout the city. In it’s first year, the Booking it with Baby tour reached over 1,500 kids ages 5-15.
Our goal is to create awareness of childhood literacy and demonstrate the positive impact reading has on youth and on the entire Baton Rouge community. To reach our goal, we need your support. We admire and are grateful for the support already received and ask that you also join in support with us to make this annual event, and the foundation, a success.
Tour dates for 2013: Tuesday, July 16th-Orlando. Presented by the Orlando Family Law Firm
July 25th – July 27th- Baton Rouge. Presented by Hollingsworth Richards Ford.
