Watch: Nailah Blackman at meet and greet in aid of Heroes Foundation
Nailah Blackman met with some of her youngest fans at McDonald's in support of Heroes Foundation, a non-profit organisation that focuses on youth development an leadership.
For the restaurant’s flagship fundraiser, Great Day, McDonald’s customers supported the essential youth development programmes of The Heroes Foundation which include mentorship and community volunteerism.
Great Day, which took place on Thursday at McDonald's on Cipriani Boulevard, included a Meet and Greet with Nailah Blackman, allowing students to spend some time with the soca songstress, get photos and even show off some of their singing chops.
All proceeds from customers' meal purchases will go toward the foundation.
“We are making it easy for everyone to contribute to our youth development, to facilitate access to training and the opportunities that our young people need to succeed," Kalifa Duncan, Operations Supervisor for McDonald’s Trinidad and Tobago previously said.
“Trinidad and Tobago needs organisations like The Heroes Foundation, which work tirelessly to provide critical developmental programmes for our nation’s youth,” she added. “McDonald’s is proud to support the excellent and necessary work of the organisation and will continue working to positively affect the lives of the young people who will take our country forward.”
"It's very important to me to get involved with the Heroes Foundation because I believe that they're doing amazing work with the youth and the youth are our future for a better Trinidad and Tobago," Nailah said.
In 2017, Great Day funds supported 450 secondary school-age children who participated in the Heroes Foundation Big Brothers Big Sisters programme.
