It's well known that Phoenix Mercury point guard Temeka Johnson is one of the most giving players in the WNBA, in terms of both time and money.  Meek's Hope, her Foundation, has raised money and awareness in several locations, and her book has furthered Meek's Hope's reach.

This weekend, Temeka's reach will extend beyond the United States, to Bermuda.  It is there that Hope4Life/ISL Founder David Bascome, Fuzion Artist/Athlete Management, Temeka Johnson, and the HOPE Foundation will help Bermuda's Sunshine League Children's Home raise funds and awareness for the organization.  Hope4Life is an organization founded by David Bascome that aims to bring hope to Bermudian children and families.  They do this by trying to equip children with the tools that will enable them to avoid negative influences and will allow them to focus on their strengths and potential to achieve their goals.

The Sunshine League Children's Home is a Registered Charity and Accredited by the Bermuda National Standards Committee as a Group Living Service.  They operate a Residential Care Facility for displaced children between the ages of 8 and 18 years. On Saturday, at the Bermuda Gas All-Star Weekend Celebrity Basketball Game, Temeka and Fuzion Artist/Athlete Management will help raise funds for the organization.  With a suggested donation of $10 and free admission to the event, they are hoping to raise close to $5,000 that night.         

Here's wishing Good Luck and Success to Temeka in her efforts to meet that goal!
