Today, the Trust In Giving Foundation—the charity created by Think It’s A Game Records Founder & C.E.O. Givan “Fly” Henry—and Black Celebrity Giving launch the “Trust In Giving Month” campaign for the entire month of October. The foundation’s mission is to create lasting solutions to problems faced by today’s youth, seniors and families, through the power of giving. The month of giving will bring hope to the lives of thousands through a variety of community activations in Atlanta, Georgia.
Trust In Giving (TIG) will enact one giveback daily throughout the month of October, ranging from surprise automobile giveaways and book donations to supporting shelters, youth homes and children with incarcerated parents, as well as senior citizen centers throughout the Atlanta area. “Fly” went on air with DJ Greg Street at V103 in order to personally break the news about the inaugural “Trust In Giving Month.”
As part of the announcement, he also gifted Jasmyn Bulls and her five-year-old daughter Riley a brand new car. Ms. Bulls arrived at the station under the impression her cousin would be interviewed only to receive a brand new car in the garage from “Fly” and “Trust In Giving.” After hearing her story, Black Celebrity Giving identified Ms. Bulls and arranged this amazing moment.

Yesterday, TIG hosted a shelter donation at Solomon’s Temple. The foundation will supply full bedding, mattresses, towels, and more. This week also culminates with a special appearance by “Fly” and the TIG Housing Program at the Hyatt House Hotel where he will surprise a family with rent and groceries for an entire year on Thursday, October 4.
On “Fly’s” birthday, Friday October 18, TIG remodels the Teen Room at the YMCA in Atlanta, which will now be dedicated to him by the City Council as “The Fly Teen Room.” What’s more, a proclamation will be presented to Fly by Atlanta City councilwoman Marci Overstreet for his work in the community. These represent just a few of this month’s acts of kindness.

About “Trust In Giving Month,” “Fly” commented, “October is a very special month for me, but I wanted to make it even more special by giving back every single day. We found the perfect partner to bring this to reality in Black Celebrity Giving. I’ve been blessed with so much. However, the ultimate blessing is for me to give back and uphold the community that gave my start. It’s an honor to do something that might change someone’s life, whether it be helping them keep a roof over their head or gifting them a car to get to work. Giving is transformative. I want to show people how one small act of kindness can make a major difference. You can trust in giving!”
