Dee Dee Jackson: Power of Love
The Dee Dee Jackson Foundation
The Dee Dee Jackson Foundation was started by Taj, Taryll and TJ Jackson.
It is a non-profit organization built around the loving, giving spirit and legacy of their mother, Delores “Dee Dee” Jackson. Twenty-three years ago they lost their mother and on April 1st. having dealt with the loss of their mother, the brothers understood how important it was to help children deal with trauma and grief.
To honor her, on her 61st birthday the foundation was formed. The brothers set their first fundraising goal of $61,000 to help children dealing with trauma, grief, bring awareness, volunteers and donations to underfunded, under-served youth programs everywhere.
With the help of their diverse online community, Taj, Taryll and TJ plan to identify and help encourage stories of hope, courage and love through philanthropic partners, schools, churches, grass roots organizations and social media nominations.
Three times a year, a new story, hand-picked from the community submissions by Taj, Taryll and TJ will be sent out through social media outlets, viral sharing, video and grassroots efforts. A three part plan for participation and involvement will be based on a 3T-modeled program: TIME (volunteerism) THOUGHT (education) TENDER (fundraise).
Since forming the foundation, Taj, Taryll and TJ have worked in the studio together and created the “Chapter III” album. The song “Power of Love” was written in dedication to their mother and they created the song with a group of children from a local boys and girls club in LA.
Their experience working with the children was featured on their hit television show “The Jacksons: The Next Generation.” On the show the brothers also talk about the lost of their mother and Uncle Michael. The brothers also have a talk show connected to the Dee Dee Jackson Foundation on LA Talk Radio Station.
In honor of our mother, we are raising $61K for kids in need for the Dee Dee Jackson Foundation.
