    Vanessa Bryant = Gold Digger


    I have just the Poem as a theme to use for your new Foundation. Please give me an address so that I can send it to you. I would love to be apart of your new project on helping the Homeless. My daughter and son are residents at the one located in Lancaster, CA. 44611 Yucca Ave., Lancaster, CA., (Lancaster Communtiy Homeless Shelter). I thank God there’s agencies like these available for resources. Sometimes our children get off track with their lives and make poor choices and decisions But I take my hat off to you and your Wife for taking the time out of your lifestyle to help concerning this problem in our communities. Our children are our future. I wish you the best in all your endeavors on accomplishing this task you chose to take on.
