Jhene Aiko Launches WAYS Foundation
This Christmas, I decided to gift my family with the “WAYS Foundation” in memoriam of my brother, Miyagi. Instead of the traditional gift exchange, I decided to make a donation on my family's behalf to a beautiful 5 year old girl named Lily Olive Cosby and her family. Lily’s story touched me and my families hearts and she made our Christmas the best one yet 🙏🏼 #WAYSFoundation @ways_foundation
