Today is January 20, 2015, It has been about 3 weeks since the new year rung in and about a month since the site was updated! Now before I go on I would like to share a beautiful saying that goes a little something like this…”When you fail to plan, you plan to FAIL!”.I DECLARE FAILURE IS NOT OUR PORTION FOR 2015 OR ANY OTHER YEAR! We here at Tribe Appeal know that this year is a year of progression and in order to solidify this concept we have planned. The past month was a solid month of planning, brainstorming, and gaining clarity for a better year. We suggest everyone does this, take some time out to evaluate your past (don’t dwell on it) , FOCUS on your present and PLAN for your future!

My African sisters all know that when the Thanksgiving holiday comes around in African household Pepper Turkey and Jollof Rice are must haves on the dinner table. It does not matter what else is offered in the buffet, if those two items do not make an appearance the Thanksgiving meal is ruined, well in African’s eyes it is.
