Jennie’s Bright Light of the Week: Judah Breland

News

AUGUSTA, Ga. (WJBF)– Judah Breland is an Augusta teenager who’s responding to the civil unrest he sees all over the news by creating a GoFundMe campaign called Spread the Love.

He’s set up a “challenge” to post a banner (and hopefully donate) to raise awareness about a good cause that’s impacting young lives right here in the Garden City. Take a look:

When you’re 16 and this is what you see– the recent police brutality/racial tensions happening all over the country, in the middle of trying to deal with living in a pandemic, what can you do?

If you’re Judah Breland, you turn your anger, frustration, and anxiety into something positive.

“I’m only 16, so there’s not a lot I can do to change this world, but I want to try something… there’s this organization called Boys with a Future, the head- Mr. Russell Joel Brown- he’s a great guy, he’s come to our Temple many times, he’s brought the kids, he’s brought speakers in. It’s a great organization!”

Judah is encouraging folks to be creative and make Spread the Love banners, post them, and hopefully make a donation.

Judah… I’m spreading the love, too! Hopefully my neighbors got a little joy out of my banner when they passed my house this morning.

AND you can spread the love too– just like these folks are doing!
