🗓️ Causes to Support in February
Black History Month ✊🏿
Black History Month is celebrated every February as an homage to the achievements of African Americans who have shaped history here in the US and around the world. This month encourages everyone to share, celebrate, and understand the profound impact of Black heritage and culture.
National Cancer Prevention Month 🎗️
