Miami rapper Trina is re-launching her charity organization, Diamond Doll Foundation, with the 1st Annual “Jingle Bell Toy Drive,” to take place Dec. 14 as a benefit for the children of Jackson Hospital in her Miami hometown.

 

       The artist will collect toys, pose for pictures and sign autographs at The Chop Shop, a popular barbershop within the Miami community. The day will include free haircuts and surprise appearances from special guests.      

       All attendees must bring a new, unwrapped toy to participate in the festivities. The following week, Trina will present the collected toys to the children of Jackson Hospital to help boost their spirits.      

       “It’s important for entertainers to utilize our influence to get involved and build awareness for community programs such as the Jingle Bell Toy Drive,” said Trina. “I am putting a renewed focus and energy into the Diamond Doll Foundation this coming year, as we look to help the less fortunate and provide motivation for young people to improve their lives.”      

       Trina created Diamond Dolls as a way to speak to young women about issues facing their community, such as teen pregnancy, runaways and self-esteem.
