On Friday night at the SoLa Beehive in South Los Angeles, Tiffany Haddish threw her 2nd annual “adult prom” benefitting the She Ready Foundation, an organization she founded six years ago to support youth impacted by foster care. The “night under the stars” was attended by stars, including Raven Symone, Cedric the Entertainer, Jason Lee, Shondrella Avery, and others.

The foundation began as an initiative to donate luggage to youth in the foster care system, something Haddish herself needed growing up. Everyone came together to support foster children. Tiffany Haddish gave so much in site in her interview with us on the importance of the community as a whole supporting foster children.

Haddish express that  “the foundation started with just giving out suitcases to foster youth because when I grew up in foster care, we were moving around from house to house and all my things were in trash bags and that made me feel like garbage,” Haddish told the room Friday night. “I’ll never forget the day someone gave me a suitcase and it changed my whole perspective on who I am as a human being. I started feeling like I was a traveler, like I was on an adventure, like I was a visitor at these people’s homes instead of garbage being dropped off at somebody’s front door.”
