Ben B the Truth and Angel "Giddy" Perez are touring the Southeastern United States before Ben heads west to California to start his next exciting chapter. The two will be performing in front of live audiences all over the southeast and also working in schools along the way doing shows for teens along with youth poetry workshops. 

Both have experience working in schools and with age 19 & under poets. Both also have a network that has allowed them to set up shows and workshops along the way. How you can help is donate to give them a head start on raising money for gas (which is super expensive these days!) and any unexpected emergencies that might pop up along the way.

Any donation from 1$ all the way up are so greatly appreciated you can not even imagine. The funds raised will be put to great use and many teens and adults will get to hear the positive inspirational poetry these two have to offer and even get to work with them one on one to help them develop their own art and voice. 

Even if you cannot donate at this time, thank you for reading this, tell a friend please!

My stop at the end of this tour is California where I will be joining an AmeriCorps program at the end of 2012 that will involve teaching and/or some type of youth development.

Thank you for your time.

-Ben B
