Improve the quality of life for single parents, the less fortunate and build on the greatness of our children. The youth of our nation is the future and as the old adage goes "it takes a village". We at MII take pride in becoming that village for those who don't have one to call their own.
Marcus was born in Columbus, GA and surrounded by single-parent homes that struggled to make ends meet and knew that if he ever had the opportunity, he would help those within that struggle. Marcus now pours his heart and soul into providing resources into those households that need just a little more love and support. As a current NFL Football Player for the Seattle Seahawks, Marcus has used his platform to give back to the "village" that served him in his youth.
I started this foundation in honor of my sister and co-founder Jasmine Smith. As a single mother with three kids, she found it difficult to live and provide for her children. I often witnessed Jasmine struggle as a young mother but I could see the passion she had, to provide the life that she envisioned for her daughters.
